BigBooper: It's a hand grenade, not a nuke. You don't have to evacuate a ten mile radius.
TheGreatGazoo: Aren't hand grenades pretty stable as long as the pin is in?
Fissile: Happens around here quite regularly. Lots of geezers around these parts....WWII and Korean War Vets. As they kick off, and the families clean out the dearly departed cribs, they find hand grenades, mortar rounds, land mines, machine guns etc. Just a few months ago, some old biddy was cleaning out her basement after her husband kicked off, and found a live mortar round sitting on a self. She called over a neighbor who wasn't sure but thought it might be some kind of weapon, so she called the cops. She took the cop down to the basement, walked him over to the mortar round and asked, "Is that a bomb?" I'm sure the cop needed one of grandma's Depends at that point.
Enemabag Jones: TheGreatGazooAren't hand grenades pretty stable as long as the pin is in?As long as it isn't something pulled out of a chest from WWII, probably.Walking into a police station with with a pineapple, police are not./But you might get your car blown up if you bring it to them.//No, I don't know the exact lifespan of the c4 and detonator in a grenade. Please inform me.
