I know what I’d do with the thing: I’d make sure that the local TV stations finally understood that buzzing my place while doing the morning traffic report was not a good idea! :evilgrin:
Given the way she’s holding it, I’m guessing it’s not loaded.
Found it in a shed, my <censored>
The article doesn’t say whether they gave the guy the sneakers for his kid or not.
I don’t see what the big deal is. I mean doesn’t everybody use these for hunting ducks?
If I had a rocket launcher, some son of a bitch would die.
They’d just about have to let him have the shoes–they’d want to encourage all those other people out there who also just happen to have a spare rocket launcher in the shed.
try not to think about the implications of that too much
That’s a TOW anti-armour missile tube isn’t it? Not the SAM they’re claiming.
I think you meant to post this in the thread about pornography.
Does it matter?
It’s still not your average handgun.
It is in Florida!
On a messageboard with the tagline “Fighting ignorance since 1973”?
I suppose not.
You never heard of an ammo dump?
It depends on when the missile was built.
You can buy missle tubes legally, right? I think I’ve seen them in army surplus stores. The article should have explained a little better that what the guy had was a hell of a long ways from a missle
A friend’s husband swore up & down he was getting a grenade launcher for his M-16 and was using as justification “tree stump removal”. :eek:
So much for Arbor Day.
I was assuming a totally different kind of rocket launcher when I opened this thread.
In the Mundane Pointless Things I Must Share forum on said messageboard? Where it will be bracketed by Mafia games, Dopefest announcements, a thread on bedbugs, “Fathom is back up”, “What’s in your emergency kit?”, and the bookshelf-photo thread?
Good on ya for fighting ignorance when all around you are just wasting time at work, I guess.
It’s a TOW (see photos #3 & #5), or rather the casing for one, and they are perfectly legal to own. The reporter is an idiot, and both he, the fact-checker and the feature editor should be fired.
Sheesh, a little harsh, don’t you think? :rolleyes:
The cops they interviewed for the piece probably told them it was a SAM. They would not likely have had any reason to question it.
Well they damn well should have. I’m sure there are quite a few people in the area who now believe their neighbor had an Anti Aircraft missile when in reality he was in possession of a length of tube.
