The Finn Valmet and Sako rifles are some of the most advanced Kalashnikov's out there, and the Finn's who use them are some of the toughest troops in the world.
Thanks for flattering, but I really can't agree with you. That was true propably during winter war 1939-40 but nowadays it seems to be more like myth than a true fact.

As a boy of 9/10 during the Finn/Russkie war I recall having a high interest in the limited news which was mostly the Newsreel (as it was called then) shown prior to the main movie. I recall grainy images of the Finns all in white, on skis, rifles slung over their backs.
They gave the Russians all they could handle and then some :wink:

Out of curiosity, what pistols are issued in Finland?
Still majority is "900 pistooli 80/91", FN HP-DA. In 2003 some Walther P99´s were purchased and very recently they made contract for Glock 17 with night sights. Border guards have been using Glock for longer time.

??????????????????
One of the glocks that has a lock in the open grip plug area so the pistol can be prevented from firing such as when in an armory. Was not popular in the US....
