    Last time I checked, the Swiss have the best track record.

    There, every qualified man is required to own a gun.

    That's why I used the term "qualified man". ;)

    What I was referring to is when military obligation is completed - the weapon is sent back to the factory to be refitted. Also, only limited individuals are permitted to carry as a private citizen

    OK....

    Either something has changed, my references were wrong, or I made a bone-headed mistake. Either way, too late to check this AM as I gotta leave for church soon.

    Hopefully, I'll get me straightened out sometime later this evening.

    Thanks.
