Is there any rocket that is NOT self propelled?

Was it registered with the LGR.

If Mr tree pruner fired that thing holding it like the picture indicates the back blast would take his head off. Unless of course it is registered.

apparently, the tube...which had been sitting there for months... had a round in it.

jethro's just lucky he didn't turn everybody in his work party into pink mist.

Yea the back blast that would come off that truck box behind him would be a pretty harsh way to get a haircut.

Many years ago I watched an fellow instructor (who new everything) fire one of those little puppies with the back end stuck in the hood of his rain jacket. You could see the imprint of the jacket zipper in his throat for weeks. Pretty funny now not at the time it happened.

Here's an interesting question to ask: the rocket tube is in the opened, ready to fire position in the pic...did someone attempt to fire this weapon at a target on the highway?

Did it fail to ignite and the launcher ( with rocket) then discarded into the bushes?

where to start?

let's see... all guns, er... rocket launchers... are always loaded... never point the muzzle at anything you're not willing to destroy. i could go on, but you get the idea.

i just wish i'd been there when the cf demolitions team rolled up on quickdraw mcgraw struttin' around with his new toy.

i bet they were a little less, uh... informal.

Every piece of ammunition of any kind used by our military has a serial or lot number on it. If this is Canadian it can be traced.
Oh, and let's ban trains while we are at it.
According to Transportation Safety Board statistics, about three people trespassing on rail road tracks are killed each month on average by trains in Canada.

if professor zinfandel was really interested in saving lives... he could start by banning snowmobiling or, gasp... fishing.
