I agree.
The LAW tube needs to be destroyed.
Send it to me for proper disposal.

She sold it to me for $2.00!!!! I need to clean the paint off and repaint it the right color. But holy crap, this thing rocks for my collection. It is of course already fired.
Hey, I'll buy that from you for $4.00!! That way you can double your money!! Hahaha!! I'm so jealous of you. You made a helluva find!!

I go to yard sales all the time and all I find is junk. Why can't I be this lucky?

kind of reminds me of when the KC police dept had a gun buy back years ago....some old lady turned in one of those Guide Lamp manufactured grease guns that her husband brought back from WWII.....bet that didn't make it to the foundry....probably in the Chiefs collection.

Awesome find!!
Even if it doesnt work you can use it to limit they tactical options of well equipped attackers and get into their decision cycle.

As you are defending your house make sure they see a fleeting glimpse of you sneaking around whit it and they will shelves the armored car attack plan real quick giving you a chance to "only" face the infantry attack

Perfect for use on the 4th of july....stick a roman candle in it and you have a great shooter....a launcher for rockets...etc. Or you can always make a spud gun out of it.

just a few months ago a woman in New Jersey brought in an "old broken rifle" her late husband had to one of those gun buy backs. the police immediately recognized it as a German STG 44. they told her it was worth several thousand dollars even in the rough condition it was in. They told her if she wanted to get rid of it, have a gunsmith restore it & sell it for her, it would be worth a hell of a lot more than the $100 gift card she would've got.

I've been sailing in the wrong yards....

Really cool. That's a definite cool addition to any collection.
