    Looks like a spent launcher tube to me... Why are the officer's looking down the barrel though, seems like a bad idea.

    Read the article on it apparently someone brought it to turn in and another person bought it off the guy for $100 and the cops found out and turned in over to investigators at ft lewis.
    These are illegal to own and are supposed to be accounted for and destroyed.

    Someone is going to be in deep doo doo

    Sweet hey zus what a haul

    http://www.king5.com/story/news/local/2014/07/29/12708250/

    Agents found 37 machine guns, 2 grenade launchers, 54 high explosive grenades, 6 blocks of plastic explosives, 12 silencers, 25 feet of detonator cord, and 7 blasting caps - all adding up to what the feds call one of the largest personal arsenals of dangerous weapons in this region's history.

    There was a gun buyback well over a year ago (I think around 2 Thanksgivings ago) and this was turned in. I thought it turned out to be a movie prop but thank god only my memory is failing me:cool::cool::cool:

    If you want to find interesting stuff, just go through the pawn shops near Ft. Lewis. :D

    I thought you could buy them surplus, and that people did so knowing they could get a hunski turning them in at a buy back?

    Hope all the transferable machine guns were return to their rightful owners because they had to have been stollen. No way they guy could afford legal ones.

    Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think that criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbors have too many kids.

    I think they got around this because someone bought this from a guy that was going to turn it in. So the item wasn't getting turned in.
