Wow! Finally a sensible decision in my country. What's next? Buying bullets so our soldiers don't have to shout "piew! piew!" on training?

That problem has been exaggerated IMHO, I work at the Mobile Combat Training Center,  and no FTX has been cancelled because of shortage of blank ammo.

Well hopefully they buy blank.

 

Using "bullets" (live ammunition) in training might get untidy very quickly.

Well, unless they where shouting "piew piew" on a shooting range :-P

(hang on, this would be a double saver: no need to tape the targets too)

...and you can get rid of range safety officers, a lot of paperwork, security guards.

 

Idea: Why don't we abolish armies in total. That would save even more money. If you prune a tree right at the bottom, you only need to cut once. Genius!

There was plenty of "Bang! Bang!" shouting during my early army days, too, so I guess we could have been depicted as witless cannon fodder as well. Hmmm, at the end of the Cold War, maybe we were. :o

The Bundeswehr, presumably at the peak of its prowess as far as classical national defense and high intensity warfare is concerned.
