grenade

When DERP and explosives mix, it’s a deadly cocktail:

I don’t know much about grenades, but I’m assuming he either let go of the lever way before he dropped it (running the time out), or else it was faulty.  All I can say is it’s lucky it was slightly in the water, because otherwise it probably would have killed them both.  I’m assuming it was a concussion grenade, not a fragmentation grenade.  Considering you can’t control the direction of the fragments, i’m pretty sure no one would be dumb enough to use fragmentation grenades.

There’s a “In Russia…” joke in here somewhere… how about “In Russia, fish kill YOU”

Thoughts?

A hilarious find in TIME Special Ops sent in by observant reader Mike B.:

As you can see it clearly reads (Glock Logo) 22 Gen4 AUSTRIA .40.    LOL so awesome…   I actually have heard that Glock made grenades for a short period of time, and there are two pictures of Glock grenades in my Exploding Glock Humor post, but I’m not sure if either one is authentic.  The grenades the made obviously wouldn’t have said Glock 22 Gen4 Austria .40 on them though.

I hope this isn’t going to get a graphic artist at TIME fired… frankly I think the person needs a promotion for being so awesome.

If you don’t already own the magazine and have any doubts of the authenticity of what I posted. Check out this video at around 4:11, where you can clearly see the same writing.

If you want to buy a piece of Glock trolling history you can pick up a copy of TIME Special Ops over at Amazon for $12.

Oh wait… never mind, just a couple AR-15s and a 37mm flare launcher *facepalm*:

Seattle Police said they recovered a grenade launcher and automatic weapons in their Thursday night raid of a house in Eastlake. Officers found two AR-15 assault rifles, one of which was equipped with a military style grenade launcher.

Good work guys… *slow clap* I know i’ll sleep better tonight knowing a recreational firework launcher is off the streets.

Sadly this isn’t some next-gen Chinese robot.. these people are real:

I sure hope whatever company that makes those grenade fuses has a very low margin of error.  Basically if it detonated a second or two early, there would possibly be 6 people dead. The Chinese especially, seem to love unnecessarily risky stuff like this.  I don’t even consider it impressive… it’s just flat out dumb.

Maybe you guys that have served here in the U.S. have some stories of unsafe things you had to do during training?  I hardly doubt it will compare to “cheating death” by passing around a live grenade or camping out at the end of a shooting range near the targets.  What do I know though.

Downtime in the military looks painful:

The saftey nazi in me noted that the magazine was still in the shooters rifle.   Was it loaded? Maybe, maybe not?  Either way, with only 2 triggers to pull on that gun, id rather be 100% sure that the only one which could possibly discharge a round, would be the non-lethal one.

Kind of reminds of of the getting shot on purpose bullet proof vest incident… although not quite as stupid.

Any of you guys ever done (or witnessed) anything thing like this?

Just when I thought it hadn’t been done before.   Beats the Lemon Grenades by a long shot.
