Grenade Fishing For Dummies

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”

    They’re filming a movie… hence the guy on the megaphone saying “cameras, go” and the PA telling everyone to be quiet. It looks like Russian stuntmen have a low life expectancy.

    1. You right.
      Stuntmen were not involved. One actor was slightly injured.
      Failed pyroeffects engineers.

    Concussion grenades still have a kill radius of at least half their boat (can’t remember off the top of my head, but then again, I only dealt with frag grenades..). They’re extremely lucky the SIDE OF THEIR BOAT took the brunt of the force for them!

  5. Since it’s apparently a movie stunt scene, might that have been a dummy grenade and a wired charge just below the surface? Stupidly done in either case, but a bit more control is possible with a wired charge. I would have expected more damage to the boat if it were for real.

  6. While this may just be a stunt, don’t forget that certain modern Russian grenades combine impact fuses along with a time fuse. There is supposed to be a brief delay before the impact feature works, but I wouldn’t trust it.

  7. Potential runners up for a Darwin Award?

  8. Fuse was probably bad and went off way too early or he was unknowingly cooking it. Kinda doubt he’d be cooking it though and his grip looks good.

    Is it just me or does that look like yellow nuke stickers on those drums?

    I’m sure that 5 years of hearing just went down the crapper right der. And I think I saw someone’s shoe sailing right round where it looks like black coat dude’s head gets blown off

  11. Unlikely to be a real grenade of any kind – unless they’re certifiable and both pulled the pin and removed the spoon before the clip starts. Much more likely a rubber prop grenade and a botched pyro effect intended to simulate the blast of a real grenade.

  12. My opinion of this is it was all on purpous. No one was freaking out afterwards and they were set up weird. Like someone said, stuntmen for a movie.

    The flash bangs we have have just over a one second fuse. Not sure about these guys, but I suspect they just didn’t know what they were working with.

    This looks like somthing I’d expect out of my local rednecks.

    I’ve always said there is very little differance between georgians and georgians. Both are likley to end their lives with the words “Hey, Watch this”

    looks like fps russia needs to step up his game

  18. No one in this town could catch any fish except this one man.

    The game warden asked him how he did it so the man told the game warden that he would take him fishing the next day… Once they got to the middle of the lake the man took out a stick of dynamite, lit it, and threw it in the water. After the explosion fish started floating to the top of the water. The man took out a net and started picking up the fish.

    The game warden told him that this was illegal. The man took out another stick of dynamite and lit it. He then handed it to the game warden and said ” are you going to fish or talk?”
