    I so get this guy. Who wouldn't want to have one of these. I'd be hiding mine better than "in my closet"

    So many places (forums) to choose from to put this. Legal/Political, NFA, Survival

    Woman finds military rocket launcher in closet

    After a woman found a military certified rocket launcher in her closet, several soldiers at JBLM are being investigated.
    KING 5 reports the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is investigating five JBLM soldiers in the smuggling of a weapon, reportedly capable of penetrating armor nearly one-foot thick, off the base.

    The M72 light anti-tank weapon with a live rocket was discovered after a deployed soldier's girlfriend happened upon it.

    A JBLM spokesman says he's unaware of the investigation.

    So many things wrong with what is posted.

    What is a "military certified rocket launcher"?

    Define "live rocket".

    Is the M72 even still in service in the US military? I thought the AT4 replaced it long ago.

    It is 100% legal to own law tubes.

    Some Infantry and special forces units still have them because they are smaller and lighter than the AT4 or recoilless rifles like the Carl Gustav or SMAW.
