If they make hand grenades, why not foot grenades?

Grenades are controlled by the NFA, and require a tax stamp as a destructive device.

People own them.

I welcomed the opportunity to use mine as they were heavy to lug around along with all the other 'stuff' in that tropical paradise.

We did that once, it worked well. It also scared the H out of the kids swimming in the water netting the fish when someone tossed a big rock into the water while hollering deedee mau!

I assume that the cops did so with the utmost safety of the children present in mind, lol.

BTW, If you ever happen upon a live WWII US Mk 2 pineapple grenade, be aware that the trigger device installed in it might not offer the same delay as it did decades ago. Some were even retrofitted in the field with nearly identical looking trigger devices installed in smoke grenades of the era, which detonate immediately when the spoon flies off. They were used by our troops for booby traps and such.

I have never seen a live grenade. A few years ago I considered registering one on a form 1, but never actually making it live. In the end I decided even that was outside my box. If all goes as planned I will never see a live grenade.

Don't hear about it that frequently any more, but fatalities still occur from someone working on a truck tire outside of a cage. I do recall reading of one in the local area last year. And I've seen tires put on the rims w/a squirt of gasoline and a match when a machine wasn't handy! That would be in Mexico and Central America where the technique is well known.

Actually did that with wd 40 to a lawn tractor tire. But it was farther north.

Ether starting fluid works the best for hard to seat beads! Stopped using this method when the air bead blasters came out.

We've had a few news reports of people finding them

https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/artic...r-12573273.php

Someone found several of them in a San Jose house they were cleaning out. Had to evacuate 10 homes and call in the bomb squad. 2018 was a good year for finding them.

Growing up we heard about people finding grenades that WWII and Korean War vets managed to bring back.

I've use Flash Bangs, Stun, Smoke and Tear Gas but never a Fragmentation, too bad with some of the places we used the others.
