Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

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 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)

For more information on these old Swiss rifles (in German: "Karabiner"/ in French: "Mousquetons") click here.
