So I'm going to be in central Europe in April for two months. What are some places I should go visit? I wanted to see the H&K factory in Oberndorf, the SIG-Sauer HQ in Eckenforde, or the CZ factory in Uhersky Brod, but apparently they don't allow visitors at any of those places unless you're a big-time buyer like military or law enforcement. So what is there to do for a civilian into guns?
The Landeszeughaus in Graz.
"Central Yurop" is a little vague, but maybe something over there is on the /k/ map that would be close to where you'll be.
The August von Spiess Hunting Museum sounds kind of interesting to me.
Have fun, and if you find anything awesome and /k/-related, add it to the map.
took a guided tour through their factory. shit was SO CASH! you have to set up a specific appointment date, though. give HK an email and see if you can. (this anon faggot even got trigger time at their range with several of the newest toys) srsly. they are very accomodating. give them an email and see what you can arrange.
go to deutsches panzermuseum munster. it's awesome.
the bundeswehr militarisches museum in dresden is fucking KICKASS 12/10 2legit2quit as well.
in oberndorf A. N. is also the Mauser museum. check it out. it's open fridays.
rheinmetall is ALSO in oberndorf A.N. but there ain't nothing interdasting there.
ALSO (!) in oberndorf A.N. is the old MAUSER factory. it's not any decent, though. they make machine tools there now. no guns.
down in oberschleissheim there is an old Bavarian Air Force airfield. it has a kickass museum.
in prague you can take a Gun Tour. you go to a range and get some trigger time with various kickass weapons. prague is also beautiful. go there anyway.
there is a PHENOMENAL tank museum in the netherlands in Overloon. it's a bit out of the way but OH SO WORTH IT.
They also have a "proper" museum there with roof and shit. It's also run by the military and they have every tank there that was in active Service of the army even a Leo 2 but no CV9030
In Denmark. Copenhagen
Absolute fuck tons of rad medieval shit as it used to be the kings arms house so it's also a rad historic build. Tanks. Missiles. Nebelwerfer . Odd as fuck blackpowder shit i think thy have an exception right now about our involvement in Afghanistan and our load out there or something can't remember
There are free days to if I'm not mistake. And the Copenhagen navy base is not far from there. Might see Absalon if she is not out reckon somali pirates
10/10 would recommend
Make a fake email domain that sounds official and email them in advance saying you'd like to make a trip out there to visit. Make yourself out to be a big time buyer/importer (don't impersonate military there might be a law against that). Print out a fake ID card and laminate that shit, give it a nice lanyard too.
Enjoy your wine, cheese, and guns.
I have family in Obendorf, the museum there is fucking amazing. Got to see one of the G11 prototypes and a bunch of other cool shit. If I remember right, the museum isn't in the factory itself but is pretty nearby
Why the fuck are you going to central Europe and wanting to see a place with guns? Europe is anti-gun as fuck. Are you telling me whatever hellhole you live in is more anti-gun than Central Europe?
I got chased off the post a few months ago, actually.
I went to visit on a weekend, and i didn't know it was closed on weekends (because i'm an idiot and didn't realize the museum is on an active military post). SO i wander the town with a shittily drawn map and compass trying to find the place. i come across this fence, and follow it to the buzzer gate thing. I buzz the gate and the speaker emits that swiss-germanic thing y'all speak. So, naturally, I speak my english at it and the gate opens to my surprise.
I start walking around and taking pictures of stuffs because "Hey fuck yeah TANKS!" It isn't long before this van swiftly pulls up to me and two men get out and start talking at me very forcefully. Of course I understand nothing and do the extra american thing of Smile, Nod, and Carry the fuck on anyways. One prevented me from moving in any direction other than towards the gate (he kept blocking my way whenever i tried to move), the other got back in the van and followed along. until i left the post.
I sent HK an email asking for a tour in November and they replied that they do not give tours to private people.
How did you get in?
