Who is holding the beer (or vodka)? That seems mandatory for this sort of thing.

That is quite insane funny because they appear to be unhurt, but could someone with more knowledge about grenades explain why that one went off after less than a second? Seems like a defect or a grenade not meant to be hand-held.

It looked to be a USSR F1 fragmentation grenade, they have several types of delay fuzes, one variation is a zero second delay used for booby traps. The delay is stamped on the blasting cap which is not visible unless you remove the fuze from the grenade body.

Not fishing. Filming a scene for a movie. One of the guys died.

I wondered about that. The guy in front was in a very bad spot judging by the state of the boat.

Held it too long after the pin was pulled is my guess...

Another reason vodka and explosives don’t mix...

Most grenades have fuzes that burn for about 3 seconds after their pins have been pulled. An American grenade has a handle that’ s held on by a pin. There’s a cocked hammer under the handle that the handle holds in place. When the operator pulls the pin the handle is free to release as soon as the operator releases the handle. When the handle’s released, the hammer flips it off and goes forward, striking a percussion cap, thereby firing the cap. The cap’s detonation ignites the grenade’s fuze that normally burns about three seconds before it reaches the main charge. I suspect the grenade’s operator in this video may have continued to hold on to the grenade after he released the lever, thereby causing what appears to be a premature detonation.

Rule #1 drinking several bottles of Vodka and then playing with a grenade is not a good idea.

Depth charging yourself while fishing can have deleterious results.

In my experience the explosion can take 6 or seven seconds, enough time for a line or two of witty banter, or perhaps an exclamation of recognition.

Right. This wanker wasn’t holding the grenade tight enough and let the fuse go while posing for his photo-op. I always remembered that a hand grenade should be at least three seconds. So this is completely “loose nut behind the wheel”, right? Thank you for the help.

Hook and line cannot compete with being blown up? The fishes being with the fishes just ain’t safe. Get out the grenades there is a binladen out there to bring up. Heck bring out the depth charges. Blow binladen up, real good, one more time.

I read an account of a couple of soldiers that had gotten their hands on a case of old grenades from Ordinance Disposal and some spoiled chickens from the mess hall, and decided to go shark fishing. They went out in a rubber raft and were tying a grenade to a chicken, and a piece of fishing line to the pin ring. They’d throw one out and just before the shark would swallow it they’d pull the pin. It was fun watching the sharks blow up until one of them swallowed the chicken and then turned and swam under the boat.

Next time, get an old fashioned hand cranked field telephone and use that. It will get you fish, it is reusable, and it won’t blow you up.

ain't that the truth... lucky they didn't get a zero fuse, the Soviets had some grenades with instant detonation for use as tripwire booby traps, they had a 0 on the fuse assembly but you had to know enough to look for it lest you get a real surprise

I don’t think that dropping the grenade just off the side of the boat was what those who fish with explosives had in mind.
