Very true.. My last job I worked with a guy who was from Switzerland and was living here on a work visa. We talked about the military training that he had and all the very cool weapons that we was able to use.

Great info! I still can't get used to the free government supplied ammunition though !!! I was looking up gun "politics" in different countries recently, and Switzerland was (convienienty?) ommitted. The Czech republic, Finland, and Northern Ireland seem to have more pro-gun type laws than the rest of the continent. As you all probably know, Great Britain is horrible. They apparently have to get special governmental permission for shooting in the 2012 Olympics! And the Olympic shooters have to train in Northern Ireland!
