    How do they do it elsewhere actually?

    Here you can see that they practice it first with blanks or without blanks (first few seconds) and then do it with live rounds.

    Strict. Though when you are done and go to reservist exercise you don't have to shave your beard or cut your hair.

    That and the fact that if you let immature 19 year old kids decide for themselves it would look like a circus, not an army.

    Is more about the dynamics of the excercise. While doing it with blanks, is all the same, but whenever you switch to real ammo, the safety standards applied nowadays, will make the exercise unrealistic.

    Hey there, I'm going to Santahamina in 4 days and was curious if there is anything I should be aware of before going?

    What should I bring? I'm taking some warm long underwear and extra socks and all that stuff that's been recommended but anything lesser known item which will be nice to bring?

    Also I don't speak a word of Finnish but I'm very interested in the Sotilaspoliisi, know of any dual citizen like me who got it? I hear we are quite common around so I figured it won't be too much of a trouble?

    Cheers.

    When you first go there you don't really need else than a shaving set, shampoo, toothpaste and brush and money (coins). Don't take things like knife first time you get there, they might confiscate it.

    Then when you are about to camping you are going to need need a proper knife, good flashlight and plenty of tuna.

    Other than that, I cant really think of anything you would need, they will take care of you. Cut your hair really short before you get there, I asked the barber to cut it so it would fit the requirements but it was still too long and I had to cut it with the machine they had in the barracks.
