I see it has hooks on top for slinging from a crane when you need to move it. Good thinking!

Yeah, but it's missing the slots and guides for a forklift.

That pose would have Feds swooping down on me from all over, thinking it was a rocket launcher.

How many rocket launchers require you to put your eye on the back?

Even the Feds aren't that stupid.

Besides, portable rocket launchers are smaller and lighter than that lens.

How many of them do you know? Most of them are fully capable of looking into the back end of a rocket launcher and then saying "What does this button do?".
