Hi, my name is Payton. I'm the manager of Airsoft Hero located in the historic district of Hampden in Baltimore, Maryland. And I'm Joshua Meyer. I'm the tech here at Airsoft Hero. Our store features AEGs, accessories, apparel. We also buy used guns, accessories and apparel and we also do quality tech work. Any details you can find on our website at And we'll be talking to you about airsoft. Now, for Airsoft grenades, not everybody's gonna use them, some people will. If you decide to go with an Airsoft grenade, the very first thing you should always remember is not to have it hanging off of you in a way to where it can go off on you. You wanna keep it secured inside of a pouch, inside of your pocket, wherever. Just as long as the pin is not sticking out, so it can't get snagged on anything. I have my grenade in the drop pouch right here. A good technique for throwing the grenade, hold the grenade at your chest in your throwing arm. I'm left handed, I'm gonna hold it in my left hand. I'm gonna hold it up to my chest, I'm gonna grab the pin with my right. I'm gonna pull the pin. That grenade is not actuated until I let go of the spoon. Once I let go of the spoon, the grenade will be armed. When throwing the grenade, you basically just throw it like a baseball. Whatever distance you want, however far you wanna throw it. A trick to throwing the grenade is to aim with your hand. Think of the Al Bundy pose playing football. So I want my grenade to go off in that direction. I'm gonna hold the grenade like so. And as soon as I throw it, as soon as the grenade leaves my hand, I'm gonna drop down to my knee to clear my head, so it won't bounce off of anything and hit me. It won't hit my head and fall in front of me, whatever. So you're gonna hold it back, do the Al Bundy, and I'm gonna throw. There's gonna be a couple different kinds of grenades that people are gonna use. Some of them are gonna be gas powered, some of them are not. Some of them are gonna shoot BBs out of them. Some of them are just gonna make a loud bang. Most of the BBs that make a loud bang are available to get shipped in overseas. You can't buy them in a lot of American base places. The grenades that we sell, personally, are powered from green gas. The internals have a small canister. You load the BBs up inside, put a cap on it, load it up with gas, throw the grenade back together, and you're ready to go.
