When it comes time to throw a grenade, make sure you have good arm strength and impeccable technique. Otherwise, I hope you’re near a safety pit…

    I was impressed that the instructors managed to pull all the really bad grenade throwers into safety. Grenades are a measure of last resort because they don't care who you are when they explode.

    They should blow themself up. Especially that women with the wimpy throw.

    Grenades do not make you a pimp. Prostitutes who give you money for you violence, this makes you a pimp. Wana listen to Dylan?

    Looks like training with live grenades should be preceded with learning to loft dummy's like decades ago. You sure don't "throw" a grenade like a baseball and especially like the broad with a slow pitch softball underarmed. At least not until you have learned the feel of the weight and how and when to release.

    I don't comment much about anything; but this morning I just happened to watch this grenade throwing exhibition! Good grief, things haven't changed much. During my 16week combat basic (1951-2) they more or less had the same pre-throw pose. Later w/the 25ID I threw grenades my way: like a peg from 3rd to 1st base! Never failed me! Later as a DI/Plt. Sgt. I watched my "boots" get taught the same crap. When I had them to myself, I said: just like there are some who can't do close order drill, there are those who shouldn't throw live grenades. And I showed them differently. The latter were in these film clips!

    I was laughing my guts out watching this video, but for real, the Drill Sergeants who trained us on how to throw grenades made DAMN SURE things like this didn'thappn to us.
