Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh:

It's a used launcher, for crap's sake, not a weapon. The bird has flown the coop, and unless the buyer has a few hundred thousand dollars lying around, it won't get reloaded. Does anybody really think that, when one of our guys uses one of them against a legitimate enemy in a foreign country nobody really cares about, the good soldier dutifully packs up the spent launcher and brings it home for proper recycling? Did the guys and gals in Desert Storm police their brass and bring it home to be reloaded? Probably not...

This is a tempest in a teapot, published to sell ads, or to make publicity points for the cops and Liberals who want to stir up fear. It's also bullshit. This is a piece of memorabilia, not a useful piece of hardware. If there's anything of value in it, it's the IFF interrogator, if it was so equipped, and I guaranty that no red-necked gun nut will be able to make any use of that. Most of that sort have really low foreheads and are most comfortable making quiet grunting noises in response to questions...
