short answer: NOPE (pulling the pin starts a firing sequence within the grenade)

Depends on the grenade. If there's a handle, the grenade isn't hot until the handle is released. The pin merely holds the handle in place.

In the picture is a variation of the M-67 Fragmentation Grenade.
The pin, in this case, is a fold-over that holds the handle in place.
The "trigger," as you can see, is actually the handle and not the pin. Think of the pin a a safety switch.

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

The safety pin is there to make sure the handle stays on, as long as the handle doesn't come off to far the trigger wont arm and you'll be safe.

Its like if you were about to topple a jenga tower but you held it up and put the block back.

Reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw that said:

"Once you have pulled the pin from Mr. Grenade, he is no longer your friend."
User avatar #116 - kaiyuni (02/26/2013) [-]
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.

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