Not exactly about firearms, but with a war theme:
The airport tower controllers at Munich Airport are reportedly pretty arrogant and autocratic. One day a British Airways 707 landed, and on roll out was told by ground control what gate to go to, but no directions there were given. So the pilot stopped the rollout, came to rest on the runway and took a look at the airport map for a way to get there.
The tower says, "British Air, clear the runway."
The British pilot says, "You cleared me to a gate but offered no directions; when I can find it on my map, I'll be on my way."
The tower says, "Never been to Munich before, eh?"
The British pilot says, "Yes, I was here 3 times, in 1944, but it was dark and we didn't stop."
Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how popular it remains?
