POTD: Heckler & Koch MP7 in the Norwegian Defence

    The Heckler & Koch MP7 is such a cool firearm. I guess everyone would like to have one, if only they could. Joining the Norwegian Home Guard is one way of shooting one.

    In Today’s Photo Of The Day we take a closer look at the MP7, as used by Norway.
