We got a message the other day on our Facebook fan page about a gun dealer in New Hampshire who was scammed by the clown calling himself Gunnery Sergeant David Chenicek who was scamming gun dealers for parts to build his buddy an AR. The message went like this;
I run a tactical supply store in NH and was recently contacted by a guy with a story. I just found out from other gun shops that this guy is duping them all out of gear and parts to build a weapon for a wounded GI. He claims to be a gunnery sgt. but I do not believe him. Here is what he sent me and thanks.
Myself and a few friends are trying to assemble an AR for an injured veteran. He was on the predator flight line in the sandbox and took mortar fire while on the line. His back was severely damaged and has had to go through several surgeries, and has extreme difficulty walking or even getting out of bed in the morning without help ( he actually lost 2″ in height ). So far we have a trigger from CMC and I bought him a MAGPUL MOE forend,grip and stock with a Spikes heavy buffer.
Before he was injured, I was sick and spent some time in the hospital after a minor heart attack and he was there every day to spend time with me and boost my own morale by keeping me company. He is an amazing human,
but at this time we have no upper or upper parts other than the MOE forend plastics yet.
Thank you for your time Sir.

So I had a couple of our Marines check him out on Marines On Line and there is no Gunnery Sergeant David Chenicek. Right after I got that message above, someone else contacted us from Las Vegas. This guy was so mad that he’d been duped, he posted all of his research on Chenicek on his own website.
I guess Chenicek finally came clean and admitted that he’s not a Marine, but he still claims to be building a rifle for a wounded airman, who comes into the discussion and says he never asked for an AR and he’s not wounded. D’oh!
The folks at Guardian of Valor beat me to posting it, but you can check on them.
So, I’m guessing that he’s not going to stop pulling this scam and hopefully this will move up the search engines so that any of our friends out there who deal in guns will see this when he tries to whine his way into their hearts.
