Serious answer is yes as long as the handle hasn't flown off and released the striker that lights the fuse. If handle HAS articulated and the striker has been released, lob that horrible little device at your nearest chum and shout "hot potato!". Hilarity will ensue.

there was a cop once, that was doing a home raid, pulled a pin of a grenade in a subdivision then couldn't put it back it releasing the spoon then had to go to the hospital because he waited to long to throw it.

Well there are 3 saftys on a grenade.
1: Being most common is the pin (Yes it can be put back if you are still holding the spoon in place)
2: Thumbclip holds the spoon in place and is normally the first one you take off (If you don't they will and throw it back)
3:Your hand, if not fapping it should be holding the spoon in place and ad you throw it the spoon comes off activating the grenade and will explode in 2-5 seconds

SO remember the next time you want to oh say silence the neighbor's barking dog with a boom rock remember these guidelines and have fun!

Take the grenade, and insert it into your asshole. Grenades are naturally shy and uptight fellows, and they will be so paralyzed by indignity that they will be rendered incapable of exploding.

...Oh, just sorta walk bowlegged down to the Police Department, they've got a guy for that kinda thing. Either bomb squad, or that one fat guy who used to be part of the Aryan Nation they have for cavity searches.

Yes all the pin does is stop the lever from moving, so as long as the lever does not move the Grenade will not go off and you can replace the pin.

If you let the handle on the side of it come out then no. All the pin does is hold it still so it doesn't go out by itself. The real danger is the handle. So yes, you could put the pin back in. I think you might be able to put the pin back in anyway, but in that case I don't know how much it'll help.

This one would be better fitting this time.
User avatar #100 - lightninghedgehog (02/26/2013) [-]
short answer: yes, only if you didn't let go of the safety lever.

Is anyone else seeing those black dots in between the squares?

I like the joke. But to answer the question, yes, you can. As long as the spoon (the blue strip of metal that would usually pop off when the pin is pulled an the grenade is thrown) is still attached. The release of that piece is what starts the fuse, not the pin. The pin simply prevents the detonation process from beginning. So you can pull the pin from a live grenade and hold it, then replace the pin and be safe. Just don't let that spoon fly.   
tl;dr Yes
