    I've spent too much time in here.. the first thing I thought was.. he had a Glock paperweight?

    Fuck. I even read the story before and that was my first thought.

    would've sucked to be in the classroom. I'm guessing only the powder proppellant charge went off, and not the actual incendiary. Dude'd be gone if it did. oh, and where the hell do you find an unused 40mm grenade just walking around hunting :ugh2:

    Another story I read said he found it while hunting right outside a military range.. So got what he deserved IMO if I found any unexploded ordinece last thing I would do is going picking it up and taking it home... Might shoot it at from 50 yards away :noes:

    No bullet, rather there is an impact grenade at the end. Think REALLY small arty round (stubby also). As for finding it at a range and shooting at it from 50 yards, I think I would get close just to confirm that 50 yards would be enough when it went off.

    I'm beginning to think you need to change your av. Your lack of knowledge about basic combat systems of the Marine Corps means you probably didn't earn a Combat Action Ribbon.
