Universal Grenade Prank Scatters Fresh Recruits

Published June 28, 2021

The universal grenade prank has been played on thousands of troops around the world. Regardless, every time i see it, it makes me laugh uncontrollably.


Day one on the grenade range for everyone pretty much looks exactly like this. The instructor stands in front of the class of fresh recruits. He tells them the ins and outs of the specific fragmentation grenade that the new guys and gals will be working with. Every small detail of the weapon system is painstakingly explained so that the new people understand the danger involved with the grenade they will be training with throughout the day.


Then, towards the end of the lecture the instructor grabs the grenade, primes it, and tosses it into the middle of the pack of students. The students don't know that it was just a dummy grenade, and they scatter to the winds trying to escape the kill-zone they were just lectured on for the past 30 minutes. Everyone has a laugh when the instructor reveals it was "just a prank bro", and then they return to training.


Fast-forward a year or two down the road, and these same Soldiers will be carrying live variants of that dummy grenade in a pouch mounted directly to their chest. They'll be smoking with it there. Running with it there. Impacting walls and door with it there. Getting shot at with it there. And even dyeing with it right there in that same grenade pouch. Kind of crazy how stable grenades are when a Specialist isn't messing with the safety mechanisms while bored on post.
