In 2011, former McGruff the Crime Dog actor John R. Morales was arrested in Galveston, Texas after a drug-sniffing dog detected pot when he was pulled over for speeding. Police searched his car and found diagrams for two indoor marijuana grow operations and marijuana seeds. When they raided Morales’ home, the police seized 1,000 marijuana plants and 9,000 rounds of ammunition for an assortment of 27 weapons, including a grenade launcher.
A grenade launcher? On my SKS? More likely than you think.
The characteristic but oft-ignored feature on Yugoslavian SKS’s is their 22mm muzzle device and accompanying gas system toggle/pop up ladder sight designed specifically for launching NATO-spec rifle grenades with blank 7.62X39mm cartridges.
Today, most Americans make due by shooting tennis balls in the grenade adapters or from home-made launching cups instead.
