Is it possible to snatch a grenade check with your teeth with ease, like in a Hollywood movie?

Surely, everyone had to see how, in a movie, a brave hero pulls out a garnet ring with his teeth. It looks cool, pathetic and very heroic! Every person over 10 years old knows that in the cinema everything is not so much the same as in life. For example, cartridges run out in the real world, and cars do not explode like a warehouse of dynamite. Given all this, there is reason to doubt the exotic way of tearing out checks.

In fact, everything in this matter is extremely simple and understandable, but first it is worth clarifying – the check that the fighter is pulling is nothing more than a fuse. The fact is that the check only keeps the trigger lever in a safe position, which is activated in a regular way after the check has been pulled out. The whole system is very simple. It is based on the usual lever. It is easy to guess that, since the check is a fuse, it must be strong enough and reliable.

Note: think for yourself who will need an unreliable fuse, especially in such an important and frankly dangerous thing as a grenade. Detonation of ammunition at an unplanned moment is unacceptable. And this means that the check, as an element of the mechanism of protection, will definitely not be easily pulled out.

It should also be noted that the check is not pulled out just because of the long twisted mustache. Despite the outward modesty and the absence of colossal stiffness of the material, such “antennae” still very reliably hold the grenade trigger mechanism. Moreover, the antennae keep the check itself, its ring, from free fall. If you do not straighten them beforehand with your hands, it will be very difficult to pull out the ring.

At the same time, even if the mustache bend back, it will still be tight enough to sit in a grenade.

An interesting fact: when installing a stretch check grenades as weak as possible in order to “keep on snot”. If this is not done, then the likelihood is high that even if they are hooked on the wire, the enemy will not vomit the ring with a foot movement.

So is it worth trying on occasion to pry the ring with your teeth? You can try anything you want! However, specifically in this case, doing something like this is strongly discouraged. Because even a previously weakened check can easily break or pry the teeth of a would-be hero.

Want to read more true stories? Then it’s time to find out exactly how Hollywood turned everything around: Automobile cinema myths, which it is time to stop believing while watching action movies.
