Guisans April Fools fun

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occaisonally inspiring ones.

" No More Swiss Munitions" Say it ain't so" <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :sw --><img src=http://x9eralpha.home.comcast.net/Swiss.gif ALT=":sw">;








I know I saw Frogpuddle's post out there. Just checking to see it the "fun" landed here yet. :lol:; and if Plantfoam had got wind of all this ?





Those that do not know what I'm talking about,its just as well....It wasn't pretty.





(edit note) I guess everyone should see this >go swissrifles.com and look for the April Fools posting.Its better/or worse than last years tom-foolery.<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :b --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/tongue.gif ALT=":b">; <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p089.ezboard.com/bmilsurpafterhours.showUserPublicProfile?gid=taosbob101>TaosBob101</A> at: 4/1/05 11:58 am

I guess I missed out on the initial mayhem<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :b --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/tongue.gif ALT=":b">;





I work the night shift, so I started playing my pranks out as soon as midnight passed. I had convinced a few people that I had next week off because I was due to appear on "Good Morning America". I was scheduled to be a guest, because I had successfully trained hermit crabs using Pavlovian techniques involving bells and high-pitched whistles.





Apparently I just know really gullable people:lol:;





If anything, Guisan's post strengthened the market for Swiss goods....I saw that several cases of 7.5 were ordered and on the way:D;

Funny I know,but there is some reassuring soul now posting info on Century's next Swiss rifle shipment. Funny...ALLAN's has two (more in boxes) AIM or SOG down to a few hundred. And I'll bet the next ones have the "extra number" Ref: "Line Outs" on this Forum".


But say one word about "No more" and you see what happens.








Its up to 2000 hits and climbing <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :eek --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/eek.gif ALT=":eek">;





Have a good weekend. I think I'll shoot some Swiss...;) <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :sw --><img src=http://x9eralpha.home.comcast.net/Swiss.gif ALT=":sw">;





I think all the rifles on the auction sites just spiked in $$$ <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8o --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/nerd.gif ALT="8o">; <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p089.ezboard.com/bmilsurpafterhours.showUserPublicProfile?gid=taosbob101>TaosBob101</A> at: 4/1/05 2:35 pm
