I know a lot of equipment is made in China but this You Tube vid suggest that some of their countrymen are less than able

That said, the Chinese did build the great wall which has been around for about 600 years; I doubt my rib will last that long. By the way, Merry Christmas everybody.

It's quite common. The trench is designed for that purpose.

Yeah, I've seen other videos where there wasn't one - lot of running. You often hear of injuries with grenade live fire. It seems to melt the brain - but then, you're holding a ticking bomb

Just as well this is a smoke grenade. It's like a scene from Dad's Army!

Another Granade story ,,
in 1940 4 of the village home guards were in the local woods doing live hand granade practise ,
unbeknown watching in the trees was my old man and his 5 mates 12/14 year olds , on the second throw an accident occoured which resulted in 2 of the guards getting badly injured,one with permanant eye loss
in the resulting chaos the guards set off all wounded in some way back into the village ,

my old man and his mates thought it best to move on out of the way and regroup later on the canal bank later on that day ,
on regrouping one lad then produced a live granade ,in the ensuing excitement and grasps of hands about what to do with it ,was short lived when the safety pin was removed and the,, Run and get down ,,,came into play,
lucky the granade was thrown into the Leeds liverpool canal which resulted in a dull thud a 10 foot plume of water a 3 ft wave running each direction down the canal and hundreds of stunned or dead fish floating about .

Just for info. It's best to steer clear of their bikes and scooters aswell.
