    Soviet Strela-2 or SA-7 Grail Antiaircraft Missile Launcher

    I was wondering if anyone has one of these in the US?

    That's a question a lot of government security staff a probably asking themselves. It is said that as a result of the regime change in Libya, 20,000 SA-7s were 'liberated' from an ammunition depot. As yet they haven't appeared in the 'circuit' of an European International airport.

    Even if "The Base Commander" released them, Homeland Security has made it illegal to own any PANPADS launcher. missile, or any components.

    The fired SA7-A tubes have been available now and then since Nam.

    Bowman reports that he had several, but they have all been sold. They could have more in the near future.

    Homeland Security had nothing to do with it. The Patriot act was legislation put forward by Congress and signed by Bush Jr. Blame him and his cronies for the mess.
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel

    I was referring to the previously posted Homeland Security documents describing them, since they are the enforcers.

    Some retiring senior NCO's received Stinger launchers mounted on a plaque as a retirement gift. Do not ask me how I know this.
