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 occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

" 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
