Here is why one goes to the Rose Bowl, to find something a bit unusual. This is the launcher tube for a LAW rocket. It is a light anti-tank weapon. Don't actually shoot one at a tank as it would just let them know where you are. Works on everything else though. Sadly I have no rocket for it but it looks neat.
Now for the particulars. It is an M72 LAW rocket launcher from the Vietnam era. Fires a 66mm rocket. It is a disposable weapon, you fire your shot and toss it away. I believe they stopped using them in the 1980s. Length when extended is about 3 feet. I can't get this one to retract.
