Yeah, so I have the worst luck when it comes to paint grenades. I was at my local fields big WW II game yesturday, and I had a couple of grenades. So the first one I goes off but shoots away from the people it landed by, and doesn't mark them. Thats a little annoying, but the next one takes the cake.

So a bunch of guys in my squad had just snuck around the field and had completely flanked the other team. We had pinned down half of their team from the back of their bunkers. After much cover fire, I ran right up to one of the buildings where 3 or 4 guys were in, and chucked my grenade through the window. I perfect toss too. But then, it hits the wall, and bounces BACK OUT THE WINDOW! I marked myself with the grenade. Beautiful....I've got the best luck in the world.

I'll go Home, I'll go Home,
Full of the devil and full of the rum.
I'll go home, oh I'll go home,
I'll go home in the morning.

I've used a Wet Willie and it worked just fine.

I've thrown one and had it explode on a tree branch about 4 feet in front of me. A couple of seconds after that the loudest S.O.B.-cry ever escaped from my lips.

 Killer, I don't mean to sound harsh or anything, but the second one was your fault. You can't really blame it on a grenade. I always throw them on the floor if i can get it into a window. If you were really far away, then you just threw that mug too far.

My gripe with the Wet Willie is that the paint is too watery, and leaves a powdery residue behind.

I've only thrown one.  It was a Squad Buster and it worked just fine.  I was just foolin' around in my backyard too...

And it's always good to have someone covering you when you're cooking off a grenade.
