Getting fido to fetch a rifle, seriously (VIDEO)

You may be familiar with Boomer, the rifle-retrieving fang for hire in Far Cry 5, but 5.11 Tactical decided to see if the trick could be done in real life with an actual pooch.

Tapping in Special Operations vet Rick Hogg and his trusty K9, Duco, the pair worked through the retrieval process gradually until the four-legged companion was able to bring back an actual AR from inside a building. Sure, it’s wrapped in fire hose and tape to keep Duco from needing doggy dental work, but they did prove the concept anyway.

Now if they could get him to run in and bring out a six-pack, that would be great.
