  • So that's where my missile launcher wound up. Wonder if I can get it back?
  • Same thing happened in LA recently

    /I think they were selling those things in surplus stores
  • If we outlaw missile launchers, then only outlaws will launch missiles.

    No it's for when the get away car is almost at the end of the street.


    zero survivors

    Well that's certainly how I used mine in Liberty City.
  • Eh, the device was deployed. It's the gun equivalent of finding a used condom.
  • With a real Russian-made Saiga AK-47 going for almost $2,000 thanks to the derp brigade stirring up "Look behind you! It's Obama with a ACLU-built, Soros-endorsed, Johnny-Depp-kissed gun magnet! Run! Run for your lives...to the gun store and stock up on these amazing bargains for a limited time only!" if these buyback programs really WERE getting AK after AK I think I'd set up a booth myself.

    Tell me about it.  Some sporting goods stores moved all of their 9mm, 45 ACP, .22, etc. ect. behind the damn counter.  And they are completely out of most of it.  Why in the world is there no .22lr anywhere?!

    A buddy of mine from the service used to go out to the range (off-base) all the time when we served.  That was right when the weapons ban and magazine restrictions were implemented.  I don't remember it being anywhere near this crazy.
  • If I had a missile launcher, I'd make somebody pay.

    I went to Bass Pro this weekend because I wanted to pick up a Henry Golden Boy and there was a jackass at the counter screaming about not being able to get an XM-15 (I think) because they didn't have any in stock.  I don't think there's a gun store in the state of Virginia that has a semiautomatic rifle left, at least not ones that shoot NATO rounds.

    Just repeating this as there will be someone who comes along hyperventilating about Stinger missiles out in the general public's hands & how airliners are going to be falling from the skies like snowflakes in Alaska.

    It's an empty (& non reloadable) fiberglass tube.  Something somewhat cool to prop up in the corner of an office but nothing to get the vapors over.  $25-50 at most surplus stores (when you can find them) & apparently a very good investment as you can now get a couple hundred for them at these asinine gun 'buy backs'.  I need to see if I can get a pallet of them at the next .gov surplus auction.  I should be able to make enough from them that, even at today's hyper inflated prices, I could convert it to one of those scary looking black rifles & still pocket some money.
  • UberDave: Why in the world is there no .22lr anywhere?!


    People are buying 50 round drum magazines of it to load into their AR-15's for home defense.
  • Wow, an empty, non-reusable tube. The horror. I like how the authorities intimated that it was dangerous. To who? It's only dangerous to the people who sponsored the buy-back and the police who depend upon you to believe everything you hear.

    348 pistols and 364 rifles? I wonder how many crimes they just paid for the privilege of leaving open. 3 "street sweepers"? OH NOES! They are such amazing instruments of crime that they haven't been used in any that I can think of, and the possession of which did not result in the arrest of the person carrying an unregistered NFA Destructive Device.

    I sure am glad they don't this kind of shiat where I live. I'd like to at least continue to have the illusion that the local police are competent.

    Yep. It's not like the old bazookas that could be reloaded in the field with a new rocket.

    It's a one-shot, disposable tube. You fire it, and that's it. Probably a Redeye or a Stinger.

    I think the only reloadable rocket launchers (I'm not including grenade launchers) in the U.S. inventory is the Carl Gustav and the M202 FLASH (the boxy quad launcher Arnold used in "Commando"), and only a few Special Ops dudes have those.

    Heh.  Because nothing says home defense like a box of cheap ass sub-sonic Remington squirrel plinkers!
  • Comment FTA sums it up pretty well.

    "A spent launch tube does not classify as a weapon unless you plan on using it as a club."

    At the local firearms store, pretty much the only thing they weren't out of were customers waving cash shouting, "Shut up and take my money!"
  • Another month, another Fark story of idiots making a big deal out of one-use launcher tubes, of which you can buy all over the place.
  • "Glock, Glock, AK-47, Glock, AK-47..."

    The AK-47 is a Glock, silly subby!
  • UberDave: Why in the world is there no .22lr anywhere?!


    My Bass Pro had it.  But once people start panic-buying, they'll just stock up on whatever they think they'll need, and I imagine there are quite a few existing guns out there that can take a .22lr cartridge.
  • UberDave: Why in the world is there no .22lr anywhere?!


    Because lots of folks have converted their ARs to shoot .22lr.

    I think you need a conversion kit for that to work.
