Just wrap some duct tape around the spoon. I just don't understand the irrational fear you civilians have of hand grenades. Stop having a freaking hissy fit every time you find one.

Or insert something else to act as the pin.

Looks like the house could only have been improved by leaving the grenade inside, right next to about ten pounds of C4.

I don't know about an "irrational fear." Grenades can and do explode and kill people. That's a pretty frickin' rational fear to me.

So much for Gramma's old souvenir practice grenade. They used to play Hot Potato with it at the nursing home.

The grenade will be detonated at another time.

The fourth of july is always a blast at the bomb squad.

Back in the 80's I had an M18 smoker (yellow) that I had stumbled across laying around my place and I swear people were always trying to pull the pin, assuming it was de-activated. And, yeah, it was just a smoker but nobody in their right mind wants one to go off in their house. I'd have to yell "NO NO NO NO NO!" and grab it away from them and re-secure the pin. I finally popped it on the 4th of July just to be rid of it. What is this fascination people have with pulling the pin on a grenade when they find one?

When I was in the service, there were more than a few idiots that attempted to pull pins with their teeth.

I know, it's like I just picked up this box with a grenade in it and I can't walk the damn thing outside and set it on the ground for the cops?
Oh, the pin. So with a little common sense, you could grasp the grenade with the spoon in palm (squeezing it to prevent an accident) and push the pin back in.
Or like above, if you think the pin is going to break, use duct tape. Or tape the pin to stay.

I've not heard stories of grenades just going off from being handled (where the pin stayed in) so odd are in your favor.

Either the pin's in, keeping the spoon secured, or it's out. As long as the spoon doesn't pop off, it's as safe as it can be. Once the spoon goes *ting*, throw hard and run like hell to get behind something sturdy.

Well if their grenades are anything like their rifles, run away!!1!

Or at least don't play catch with them.

When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is no longer your friend.

Grenades, when saying "fark you!" isn't enough.

I read about this in today's paper.  It was so *gasp* dangerous *where my fainting couch?* they shut down an entire intersection and had to call a bomb squad from a city 20 minutes away, yet numbnut was able to carry it outside.  If he was that concerned, he should have just left it where he found it and then called.  way to endanger (not really, but you know what I mean) everybody else in the neighborhood, twit for brains.

Ever been to a training range for the US military?
They take all kinds of people that should have washed out a long time before they get to the part where they have a piece of live ordinance in their hands.
I've had to jump on both sides of the barrier when some dimwit couldn't figure out how to throw a grenade correctly.
I mean, at least have them prove themselves first with some farking rocks.
At lease the Pakis make you practice with rocks before they give kids a live one to chuck.

I have no problem crawling under grazing fire when I know the gunner and the gunner knows how to fire.
When that grazing fire is landing where I need to be in five seconds, then they farked up.
Don't fark up. Practice.
Be an expert with your tools.

Don't be a tool around experts.

Having never been exposed to a grenade, I'll just assume it is live and let the Proffesionals handle it, thank you very much.
 
2014-06-16 03:16:58 PM
Without disassembling it or detonating it, how does anyone know if it is live or deactivated?

If it was a smoke grenade I suppose you could tell from weight, and most fragmentation grenades appear to have holes in the bottom when they are deactivated. So is this just a smoke grenade?

It could have been a Hollywood grenade.  We narrowly escaped the northern half of the U.S. being reduced to a giant crater.  Of course you can always identify those because they tick.
