hope not I've got a BUNCH!

But no, they sell them with the body and inert fuse as "Complaint Department Take A Number" gags everyday!

If they are, explain the thousands of "dummy" gernades for sale everywhere that have pins in them.

I've got something similar as a keychain.

Everybody does.

No, some CMA/ASPs (Central Magazine and Ammo Supply Point) require unit to turn pin or spoons in as proof of use. However they just send them to DRMO afterwards.

Only if it is not attached to a live grenade.

Feel lucky... in the PRK, it is illegal to own a dummy grenade now!

Yep, that's the only 'control' that I'm aware of on grenade pins. My unit insisted on getting back 1 pin for each grenade that was used.



I always wondered what kept someone from replacing the pin with...oh... a straightened paperclip and turning the pin back in.

No, as far as I know, small cotter pins with metal rings are still completely legal to own.....

till the libtards find out

Link Posted: 2/23/2006 4:35:35 PM EDT
no it's not illegal.

However I strongly advise you against holding both parts of a grenade ( one in each hand ) for a prolonged ( more than 1 sec ) period of time

You can make a grenade pin. Next I bet you'll tell us we can make hamburger.

Once in a while I can be an ass and get away with it. Usually I'm just an ass.

Thanks though.
