LOL i bet it's just on loan from the LAPD. Gotta have something really scary to take pics of for these buybacks.
Most of the ones I've seen that turn up in these buybacks are either spent AT-4's, AT-4 non-functional trainers, or the functional AT-4 trainer that
fires (gasp) a 9mm tracer.
That looks like a stinger to me though. Of course the AP article was written by someone who doesn't know crap about weapons. It doesn't even give
the model and then calls it an RPG (anti-ground vehicle weapon)in the pic and a surface-to-air missile in the text.
I've never fired or trained on a stinger, but I didn't think they were one use weapons like the AT-4, but I could definitely be wrong about that.
