The nearest I got near to a gun is my school stunt of national cadet corps. I get a chance to fire a self loading rifle ONCE. Not a single one hit the target for 6 chances. That's it for entire life going near to a gun since then. I have immense respect on those that perfect the art. While taking oath to become American I was asked "will you take a gun and defend America if asked" I said yes. Ha!

Do they have national service anywhere that anyone here is from?

Dang, I wanted to post a smart ass comment, but you said not to, so I won't.
