Well the story starts off with...

SAN ANTONIO — A man who found a green metallic tube while cutting trees on his Comal County property thought it had a military look, like a rocket launcher.

He was right.

He was wrong to pick it up, take it home and display it on his dining room table.

A decal on the equipment discovered by Jarrette Schule said: “Guided Missile and Launcher, Surface Attack.”

“I had never seen it before,” said Schule, 34. “I looked at it, and it kind of looked like a missile launcher.”


But then it gets freakin crazy...

Schule did not want to leave the launcher on his vacant property, so he loaded it in his truck and took it to his house.

The San Antonio Express-News reported that he spent Tuesday afternoon calling the FBI, Homeland Security and other agencies.

“Everyone was handing it off to everybody else,” he said.

Schule called military police at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, who passed his information to an Army criminal investigator. The special agent visited him Wednesday morning.

“She said this is the first time she ever encountered anything like this,” Schule said. “I got the impression it was kind of a big deal. Doesn’t happen every day, I guess.”

So the DHS and the FBI don't seem to be all that interested when someone finds an Anti-tank missile on his prop/// go figure...

Ya but think of all the damage you can do with those Cuticle Scissors...
Besides I've been through those airport gates too and no where on their list does it say "No Anti-Tank Rockets"

Good Point! It does not say anything about Anti-Tank Rockets there...Did anyone else get the random thought "I want to find an anti-tank rocket." after reading that or was it just me?

Once you see one of those go off I think they would be very interested.

Very powerful and dangerous, and a great 4th of July grand finale for sure.

Yes, it is not an ordinary item to find, but he did not find an anti-tank missile, he found the launcher for an anti-tank missile.

Texas man to feds: Take my missile launcher, please



And I don't think you can go down to your local Walmart or gun store or army/navy store and pick up rounds for it.

Sorry to burst your bubble, folks.

You can get used stuff like this at any good gun show. Its just a curiosity. It was stated before, "where you gonna get ammo for this". Hell, you cant hardly get ammo for an m16 or m9 anymore?


I'd of kept it. Should fetch around 75 to 100 bucks for this Medium Armour Weapon (MAW). This replaced the LAW rockets.
