Here’s another good one, a Huey was making a hot LZ evac and a scared sh!tless grunt slammed his M79 on the deck while he was hauling his a$$ into
M79 went off and punched a hole through the roof but did not detonate and didn’t hit the rotors.
From that point on the chopper pilot made his gunner put the M60 on the grenadiers before the boarded to politely remind them to engage the safety on
Even more interesting is how the Russians used their case less 40mm grenades.
Fuse arming is not from the spin but from the acceleration, so when clearing out building they regularly used then as hand grenades by slamming then
against the heel of their boot so set the fuse, and then just tossing them.
