Switzerland has introduced an awesome stamp celebrating the very popular annual federal shooting competition. The middle of the target has a tiny hole :) I love it.

UPDATE: These stamps can be bought for 20 Swiss Francs (about $17). Shipping worldwide is free!

The origins of Switzerland’s popular culture are rooted in myths and legends, in historic events and in the everyday life of farming folk. Whether the festivities involved wrestling or traditional costumes, yodelling or cow fights, they fulfilled a key social and community function long before television reached the remotest corners of Switzerland. Now, four Swiss Post special stamps with typical motifs are turning the spotlight on these customs.
