They flew home from Iraq together on a spring day in 2010 on a C-17 cargo plane, the dog in a metal kennel on the floor at the soldier’s feet. When they reached the United States, the soldier went home to his farm in Fountain, Colorado, and the dog was transported to the Army’s military kennels at Fort Carson, about 12 miles north. Sergeant 1st Class Matthew Bessler and the Belgian Malinois named Mike had been part of a canine tactical team with the 10th Special Forces Group based at Fort Carson.

My entry into the field of self-defense shotguns is recent and sad. We brought my wife’s brother to our home for hospice care so he could go pain-free with dignity and grace. After his death, it became my task to clear out his apartment. I vaguely remembered he had told me about an old shotgun, but I was surprised at discovering one in the water heater closet. Those helping me clear the house were scared to touch it. Being the only gun guy in the family, I brought it home. READ MORE
