You get truffle sniffing dogs, deer sniffing dogs and drug sniffing dogs, it only makes sense that we would end up with a tactical magazine sniffing dog. Perfect to find those lost magazines and brass 😉 This photo was taken two weeks ago.

I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!

    The state of CA will be buying these dogs if they get all of their ammunition bans pushed through!

    it is obvious all this sniper detection, gun/ammo sniffing dogs etc, WILL be used against US when martial law and gun confiscation occur. Sad, that this technology will likely be used against us. I for one, am NOT celebrating at these advances of "technology."
