Does This Mean There's Also a Traditional Bavarian Exit Wound?

Reuters says that after Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived for a dinner near Munich last night, he was welcomed by children dressed in "traditional Bavarian clothes" and given a "traditional Bavarian gun." I don't know what has me scratching my head more -- the questionable p.r. value of handing a firearm to Putin just days after the brutal murder of crusading Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya or the fact that there's such a thing as a "traditional Bavarian gun".
