    I was on my way home from work. I stopped and saw an ugly green painted tube sitting on a pile of junk. The lady of the house asked "Do you know what that is?" I said, "Why yes I do." Her reply was, "What is it?" I extended it and put in on my shoulder and said "It is a M72 Light Anti Tank Weapon. It is a rocket launcher". It obviously scared her to hear my answer. 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.

    You should have seen the lady's face when I extended it. She said it had been in a pile of junk for years. She didn't even know where it came from.

    Wow I was looking online and found several for sale. They are nicer than mine. But 1 is $200. The other is $300. I guess $2 was a good deal:D

    It is like the panzerfaust from WW2. You shoot it once and throw it away.

    Very cool, why isn't the LAW still around? Is there a replacement?

    The LAW is still used.
    The military mainly uses the AT4.

    An elderly lady with a spent rocket launcher? She sounds like a member of a dangerous terrorist group. Most likely an AARP Guerrilla a Grey power fanatic.:eek:
