The rpgs weren't fuctional as are most of the weapons that are dumped at these sales. They have a conservative $10k street value if they do work, more since there is large cartel wars and infighting south of LA. Most police buy the cheap Walmart 22 LRS and trade them at profit at these by back scams. If you think by backs work then I bet you believe that meth cooks actually use the pills from stores to make most of the meth in this country too. I do have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale for those people.

#1- These standard AT4 tubes. You can find them for sale in many "Army/Navy Stores". They can not be re-used. Its just a useless peice of junk.
#2- How the hell would you have any idea what a real "rocket launcher" goes for on the street? You dont because there is no market for "rocket launchers" on the street.
#3- "Infighting south of LA"? Huh? Are you stupid enough to think that gangs are using AT4's on American streets?
#4- I bet you vote dont you? Scary.

The "Rocket launcher" that was turned in was a spent AT4 launcher tube. It might make headlines for uninformed morons, but they are not illegal to own. They are not even considered a firearm and you do not need a backround check to purchase. It's about the same as buying a peice of sewer pipe. They are a worthless tube, but the anti-gunners want to make a issue about this nonsense.
