    RPG-7, Funny, I don't remember that...

    Take a look at this one. Way too hilarious. Tried to politely tell the seller the error of his ways, but, what the heck. Cheers, Bruce.

    The real problem with this ad, is that some stupid buyer might believe it and actually pay that much for it.

    John

    A buyer has been found. Must have a strong hankerin' for one. If the bidder is who I think it is, it makes it even more interesting. Inert copies @ $495 per will follow soon.

    Awcrap. The bidder isn't a repro slinger is he?
    That would make it a double edged sword.
    Not only paying an inflated price but later on polluting the gene pool.

    Just add .com to the end of the bidder's name. Nice stuff. Horribly expensive.

    Ahh. I should've made that connection. We use some of his IEDs for props at our big Airsoft games on Ft. Drum.

    You don't understand, the prices are different in the USA because it's so hard to get them from the UK and nobody wants to bother because they are all scared of dealing with the the British government explosives agency, British customs, American customs, and the American BATF.

    Funny though I never noticed that error until someone pointed it out. Yeah, It is a HEAT round, not a Heat-seeking Rocket Propelled Grenade. Similar to the error of calling RPG the "rocket propelled grenade" instead of "shoulder-fired antitank rocket launcher" and PG is supposed to be called an "antitank shell (or grenade)" and not a "propelled grenade".
