my_cats_breath_smells_like_cat_food: The only live grenades you got to toss had a very long, very thorough lead up and lecture about exactly what was going to happen, and what would happen if some privatey-private farked it up. You throw the grenade from a foxhole about waist deep, and there is an instructor in the hole with you. If something goes wrong and you drop the grenade the instructors will 1. jump out of the hole and 2. grab your dumbass and pull you out, in that order. They did not fark around with live explosives.
Callous: What kinda protest they got going on there that people are throwing grenades?!And where do protesters get grenades?
Kit Fister: With grenades, there's generally not a hell of a lot of time to react due to the fuse. Kicking, throwing, whatever...your best bet is to find a shield, or just try to keep it from taking everyone else out.
Coolfusis: Huskadoodle: He wasen't kicking it away from himself, he was trying to get it away from everyone else.Yep. The smart thing would be to run away. This dude did the not smart, but goddamn brave thing, and deserves his efforts applauded.
