Imagine being ambushed by al Queda on a bridge in their home turf. You go black on ammo and are forced to re-supply off your dead and wounded. When that goes south, you’re left with nothing but a pistol. The combat report comes in after the battle, and you’ve officially just dodged more than 2,000 rounds while returning fire and eliminating the threat… welcome to your first day in Ramadi.
This Monday, April 15, on The Gun Show Dave Womach dives into the world of combat with First Lieutenant Harry Golden to discover the real secrets of fighting. Chances are that you’ve read his story on the pages of “Saber’s Edge” by Thomas A. Middleton. Being a bit of a survivalist himself, he offers an unprecedented look into the reality of war. It isn’t about marksmanship; it’s about fighting with your weapon. Buddy teams, medics, vehicle born assaults, and defending the homestead. Join into the listen and chat section, or simply call in to ask any questions you’d like.
