Apolgies for the necro post, but i think i may have something relevant to add.

I use these a lot..admittedly I am based in the UK. perfectly safe when used properly, the biggest mistake people seem to make is that they don't prime the grenade..then wait...then wait a little longer...then screw the blank into the top. people do it in a rush, prime it put the cap on then BOOM. because a they have primed it they have missed the mark and set off the timer.

what terrifies me is the impact version, not the grenades themselves, but peoples propensity to prime them..then just stick them in a pocket without a pin in them. i havent seen it yet, but i have heard of people doing this, then falling over and setting off 5 impact grenades in their pockets. fortunately little damage occurred beyond some minor burns to his "mr squishy"

All in all these are a really well made and thoroughly useful bit of kit for cqb, but for the love of the manual. Also. dont use them so much for woodland..they dissapear and when using them in cqb, make sure you are in the room pretty certain places they tend to "magically" disappear into peoples pockets

Yeah, the 209 primers make for a good pop. I reload shotshells, and if a crimp fails, you have to fire the primer prior to extracting it.

Cheap too. $4/100 if you buy in a 1,000. $6-8 if you buy per 100.

I have to present my PAL when purchasing Primers.
I know the rare and obscure "Teufelhorne" Regiment handsignal.

some answers to questions

Sorry for the hijack here, we have been conducting some web crawling and came across this discussion on Google.
We have successfully shipped to Canada about 10 units in different locations and have not encountered any issues relating to importing to Canada.
It would be prudent however to check with your local site if they will allow use of our products.
Also the ghost story of the impact going off in a pocket (some 5 of them) would be a myth, as each device works on the basis that the nose needs to be the point of impact, and one device if it did go off, would certainly not cause the other devices to detonate.
Our v.t.g. offers a 3 second delay and can be used with .209 / 9mm / 10mm all for indoor use, 12 gauge which is the 120db is for outdoor use only. Hope this helps and if you have any questions please feel free to ask, thanks to the admins for allowing this post.

That's what I would call great support from a manufacturer/retailer!

Thank you for the precisions!
