Default can you buy hand grenades ?

dunno what made me think of this but can you legally buy hand grenades? im assuming you can with a lot of paperwork. i cant think of a (reasonable) explanation for why i would need a hand grenade short of a zobmbie invasion.

if you can buy one who would even sell one and how much would it cost you?

At the very least they would each be registered as Destructive Devices and require a $200 transfer tax. While I am no expert when it comes to explosives i would think ATF would also require some special storage requirements and maybe a FEL (Federal Explosive License)

i waas talking to a friend who worked for a shop that had a Mk 19 40mm grenade launcher on display at the last show.

the story i heard was that for that, you've gotta go thru and they have requirements for how the 40mm grenades are stored.

not to mention the $200 tax stamp on each grenade.

but that's second hand info. no clue if it's still anywhere close to accurate or not and make no claims other than "it's what i heard".

i'm guessing that similar conditions would apply to hand grenades... except that you don't need any paperwork for the launcher.

looking forward to hearing more on this from anyone who knows the scoop. not that i need one, just because i'm curious.

I couldn't sleep at night knowing there is a live hand grenade on the coffee table

Some need to go to grenade school before owning one.

I was thinking the same thing but with Smoke Grenades lol. If shtf and there are snipers involved, I wanna be able to be invisible or atleast out of sight.

My buddy said AT4s can be pretty devastating against insurgents holding AK's.

"once you pull the pin, Mr. Hand Grenade is not your friend!"

i live alone... as long as the dog doen't think it's a new toy or try to retrieve it when thrown it'd be ok on the coffee table.

think i'd put it someplace where it would be easier to find tho!

Everyone does. Everyone expects big Hollywood explosions, and it just doesn't work like that......unless you tape a gallon can of gas to the shot.

Real explosions have little in the way of a fireball.
