One fairly large difference, at least in Switzerland, is that the ammunition for those "closeted weapons of war" (which are kept only by younger men who have completed compulsory service but are still on reserve) is stored in a central arsenal, not with the weapons. When the reservists' terms of reserve service are up, they may keep the weapons, but they must be licensed in the same way as other privately held firearms.
