On each episode of "Lock n' Load", R. Lee Ermey takes us on a fascinating ride through the pathology of a featured weapon: where it came from, who thought of it, who improved it, its victories, its defeats, its impact on history and where it is now. R. Lee doesn't start at the beginning. He launches each "Connections-type" journey with that weapon's most modern iteration: for example, unleashing a maelstrom from a Metal Storm gun at one million rounds per minute, then weaving the machine gun's history across the hour, skipping through decades, centuries and milestones as required.

The girls who make up the assassination unit within the Social Welfare agency are Henrietta, Triela, Claes, Rico and Angelica, all whom have shady backgrounds which led to their involvement with the agency. Each girl is skilled in martial arts, weapons and tactics, demolitions, foreign languages, espionage and counter-terrorism, skills that are necessary when dealing with terrorism, illegal arms deals or even crime organizations who have a serious stranglehold on the country of Europe. But while these girls are the perfect weapons against these types of everyday problems, they must constantly do their best to hold on to what little pieces of their humanity they have left, as they are being forced to commit cold-blooded murder, sometimes even killing innocent people who get in the way.
