I'm not sure on hand grenades. I know several people that own them, but I doubt they're legal. That one I can give or take as far as legal ownership, as they don't serve a self-defense function, but are easy to make if needed for a militia function.

I'm extremely pro-firearm rights obviously.

Grenades kinda have a big blast radius. Keeping them in the house for self defence might not be so smart. Espically if you have thin walls.

Thin Walls or not, setting off a Hand Grenade in your own would just wreck the place.

Relatively speaking though, Grenades have a very small blast radius.

What kind of pussy shit grenades have you thrown?
Shrapnel can hit from 50 feet.

At 50 feet, the dispersion of the shrapnel is very Sporadic, and a hit alone is unlikely, and a fatal hit much more so. Outside of the 30 yard ring Hand Grenades rapidly lose their effectiveness.

Fact is, anything with a sizeable kill radius, can't be thrown by a man.

Nuclear arms work several ways. To be an effective weapon, only four criteria can apply. One: the enemy doesn't have them. Two: The use of strategic arms for specific apllication, like underground bunkers. Three: you have nothing to lose, see Iran if they get one. Four: the way Reagan truly used them. He knew USSR, with their communist syrtem, could not keep pace with the USA and their Capitalistic Economy. He simply used the arms race to bankrupt the poor bastards. All the talk might have been about mutually assured destruction, which by the way was part of the communist plan to take over America from with in, it was step 1, no really look it up, but the true plan was to bankrupt them.

That applies more to old school fragmentation grenades, like the Pineapple Grenades. The technology has "improved" to make them generally lethal well outside of 30 yards, but I'm pretty sure I heard they're scaling them back because unless you throw from behind cover, you're likely to catch some of the blast yourself.

Fun story: We have a grenade casing at my house, and my brother literally made a friend of his shit his pants by throwing it into his lap and jumping behind a couch.
