How many of you have ever seen a live hand grenade outside of military service? I happened to catch a news blurb on the BBC as I was headed out to run some errands. Apparently, grenades can be bought on the street in Sweden and there is a real problem with them being used. WTH???

I think they sell them at IKEA, https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/koettbu...ozen-70028680/

But you have to eat them to explode

When I was a very young kid my older brother and a couple of his friends found a live grenade in a ravine that adjoined a large kids park. At that time, back in the 60's, it wasn't unusual for people who lived around the rim of the ravine to use it as a dump and discard junk by tossing it over the edge. My brother and his friends, who were about 12 years old, carried it to the kid's house that lived the closest. They ran into some older kids on the way that tried to bully them into giving them the grenade. One of my brothers friends replied that they would give them the grenade but keep the pin if the bullies didn't back off. When they got to the house they called the cops. The cops came and picked up the grenade and my brother and his friends taking them to the nearby dump. At the dump the cops pulled the pin and denoted the grenade, letting my brother and friends watch as a reward for turning it in.

At that time apparently it wasn't unusual for the cops to get calls about grenades, American, German, and Japanese war relics and bring back weapons, or even unused dynamite to be disposed. A few years later when I was older I had a paper route and delivered to the police station. They showed me a closet full of stuff that people had turned in. I remember about a dozen machine guns and several sawed off shotguns and other weapons in that closet. Simple procedure then, call the cops and they took care of it. I imagine that today there is a bunch of red tape, reports and investigations involved.

In the early 60s my friend had one delivered to his house with a load of coal. The worm jammed and that's what they found. I actually saw it. Cops came and carted it off.
