AT4

To Live And Die In L.A.

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck holds up a rocket launcher turned in during a weekend gun-buyback program in the city. The haul also included 791 handguns, 527 rifles and 302 shotguns — less than what usually is turned in. A supermarket chain donated $200,000 in gift cards to be given out in exchange for the weapons.

Oh.. wait… TRAINER.  *facepalm* Stellar police work Charlie.  How embarrassing.  Is that an inert AT4?

They always flaunt those haul numbers like it’s some massive victory, but I wonder how many of the bought back guns were actually airsoft or 40 year old throwaway guns that don’t even work.

Thoughts?

YouTube user jairust makes an AT4 style launcher for model rockets.

He then goes one step further and rigs up his 2006 Honda CBR motorcycle to fire rockets :)

One of the rockets looks like it flies across the road into oncoming traffic… OOPS!

Reminds me of this picture from a previous post.
