While you are here, go and buy cheap russian hardware. New AK103s for example. And silencers cost like 50$. Everyone in Finland can speak English (We just dislike doing something we cant do perfectly). Most of us speak Swedish and German too.

Oh, thursday you have hellova hang over, everybody is drinking anyway on wednesday. How about shooting? There is very good shooting range nearby Salo. MN

What can I say? Grass is allways more green behind the fence. We got those POS AKs all around here and it has been too damn difficult to get here hi quality ARs lately. BTW, I´m not Sako or Valmet basher, I like them too but AR is much more better in ergonomics and better to shoot.
markus and i emailed over the past year/year and a half and he is someone finland can be proud of I have to mention this when I see him.

Ah, you are the man he told he sent Kuksa! Handle that cup with pride! Not everyone is allowed to use that thing. You can also drink other liquids from it but it is "inaugurated" it has to be done with whiskey, rum or cognag or anything what contains alcohol [:D] MN

Your in Finland and none, and I mean NONE, of the prior posts asked you about the beautiful women in Finland -- sometimes I think this board is getting a little too gay! [peep] Later,

YA! Tell us about the Womenz[:P] and anything else someone would need to know about that country if I wanted to visit[;)]

hound how does your schedule look for the thursday? I hate to say this but it looks like we can´t do the trip to shooting range near Salo. Friend of mine who´s member of local gun club said me yesterday that it is not appropriate to go there thursday. I didn´t ask for reason. When he says so I accept that. There is another range but we have to do longer trip. If this is ok let me know. MN

Hello from a fellow Finn, Though born a US citizen, I can speak Finnish, and still uphold many fine Finnish traditions like heavy drinking. My dad was a Winter War and Continuation war vet. Here's a couple pics of him. He's still kicking, and always yells about communists whenever I visit him, but is getting up there in years now. He still puts a puuko on his belt everyday when he heads to whatever wood project he's working on.

Regarding kuksas, i traded one for a pair of Springfield Armory Grit Grips with a member over on 1911forums.com, he was very pleased of the trade.
