Other then Switzerland and Cyprus, has any other country adopted the ‘keep your service rifle at home’ mass militia concept?

Was always a big fan of the idea.

I have no idea.
My educated guess is, the number of nations that do that is very limited.

It has a certain charme.
But its propably very difficult to implement and needs the right starting conditions.

There used to be a LOT of National Guard armories in the US. For the Baltic States, maybe keep rifle, basic ammunition load, and set of fatigues/basic kit at home. Local armory with vehicles, more ammo/general supplies, and heavier weapons.

On the downside, one of the reasons for shrinking the number of NG armories in the U.S. was break-ins and weapons being stolen.

10m is actually super impressive given 7.62x51 M993 from a 16" was getting stopped at 12 meters distance.

7.62x51 M993 does not seem a relevant basis for comparison.
