Gun culture in Switzerland
There's a very good video on Swiss gun culture, really worth watching. I stumpled upon it through the Firearm Blog, one of the excellent gun blogs out there:
There is an interesting video at WorldRadio.ch about the famous unique gun culture of Switzerland. At the start of the video a Swiss guy shows the rifle he used in military service, his fathers service rifle and says that his grandfather's service rifle is hanging in his office. How cool is that?Here's an old picture from LIFE documenting that tradition and showing what appears to be a K11 (the predecessor of the classic K31)
