That's not that uncommon. You can buy a used M72 LAW pretty easily. I don't know anything about that particular launcher though.

Seems that one was specific to a Stinger missile system from what they mentioned in the article. It should be serialized and easily traced back to the base it was used. Unless it was "accidentally" shipped to Mehico. err, I mean lost.

now that struck my funny bone.

These are very dangerous weapons," Metz said. "They may not have looked very pretty, but (they're) definitely operable."

He added that the private sales of the missile launch tube and other weapons illustrate the need for comprehensive background checks as proposed by President Barack Obama, as well as other regulations at the state level.

I am going to call Massengill in the morning, and see if they will hire this bozo as their public spokesman.









He has GOT to be the biggest douche in town.

These buy backs are put on for TV cameras. Everyone you watch the cops are holding up AR-15 rifles with large clips. When the TV crews leave the cops put their AR rifles back in their cars.
