Introduction: AIRSOFT GRENADE: With Pull Pin

Picture of AIRSOFT GRENADE: With Pull Pin

this is a compact sturdy aisoft gernade. it is simple and cheap. it is illegal in some states. so don't get caught. it isn't very dangerous, but it should require eye protection. i wouldn't pick it up. that would really hurt.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

match box
corn kernals
bottle cap
chinese visco fuse
hot glue gun
electical tape
tin foil
a 2 inch wide peice of pipe
a container of some sort

Step 2: Powder

Picture of Powder

first we make the explosive powder. this is made of many small peices of visco fuse. when contained it is pretty explosive. so cut two peices. one is our actual fuse. make this as long as you want. the other should be about as long as your pinky. you should cut this into tiny pieces, and catch the pieces in your container. they should be about the size they are in the picture. this is the beginnings of your explosive charge

Step 3: Making the Explosive Charge

Picture of Making the Explosive Charge

in this step we are making the explosive. so first you need your electric tape and tinfoil. take two peices of tape about the length of your for arm, and two peices of tin foil, one slightly bigger than the other. now take the powder you just made, and pour it onto the smaller peice of tinfoil. now place your actual fuse on top of the powder. now inclose the powder inside the tinfoil, with the fuse sticking out the top. now wrap your little package tightly with one of your peices of tape. stretch the tape tightly, and mainly tape around the top and bottem of the explosive, so the blast comes out the sides. now repeat the process with your second peice of tinfoil and tape.

Step 4: The Gernade Body

now momentarily place your explosive aside. we are now building the body of the gernade. so fist rip off a third of your peice of paper and wrap it around your pvc tube. but leave a bit of the paper sticking up beyond the tube. take this bit and fold it inwards and tape it up. you are now done with the main body of your grenade.

Step 5: The Grenade

Picture of The Grenade

now you take your corn kernals, and cover the bottom of your paper tube with them. now take the explosive we just made, and put it inside the tube on top of the kernals. now pour in more kernals, to almost cover the explosive. now you do what we did to the bottom of the tube. fold in the paper, and tape it up.
if you want to stop now you can, and just light the fuse with matches or somthing. but i like to go one step further.

Step 6: The Pull Pin

Picture of The Pull Pin

because i don't like to light my fuses, i am going to use a pull ring to ignite mine. so first take your match box and cut out a strip of the stuff on the side. and also take a bit of wire and make a ring out of it. now take two matches and hot glue them to either side of your fuse. next take your little piece of match paper, and fold it in half, and hook it onto the ring, and tightly tape it onto the matches. let me make that a little clearer, the tape shouldn't be touching the matches, so the paper is just held tightly against the matches. now you are done. when you pull the ring it ignites the matches, which ignite the fuse.

order it off it is cheep and easy, and legal in all 50 states

JamesTB13 (author)hairydevil2010-06-28

Ok, not to sound ignorant or anything, but I don't care how many states it's legal in, I live in Canada. No offence, but I'm getting sort of tired of people assuming everyone on the internet lives in the U.S.

hairydevil (author)JamesTB132010-06-30

i would guess you could buy it in canada, but the company that sells the fuse is located in montana, so if you live near the border i guess you could just drive down there

thorpenny (author)hairydevil2010-07-10

as long as you only buy say one roll of fuse they wont be suspicious but if you order tubes and plugs and everything else all at once they'll think your making m-80s or something.

..... or making a rocket motor yah dingus

tubes and plugs can be used for various things and not just salutes

JamesTB13 (author)hairydevil2010-06-30

I guess i could, I live near Toronto, so pretty close to the border. I'll see if will ship it to me. Ok, well thanks for the 'ible!

Spartman1 (author)JamesTB132011-08-19

But every 1 does?? phaha

boomboy123 (author)JamesTB132011-07-16

im british

tbostwick (author)JamesTB132011-07-05

Dude calm down. The majority of use are American, so we assume other people are in the US. Don't blame us for that. You could have specified that you were in Canada, but you didn't.

wvill (author)JamesTB132010-06-29

well u suck

JamesTB13 (author)wvill2010-07-04

And, WHY is that?

JamesTB13 (author)2010-05-31

What if I only have strike-anywhere matches?

hairydevil (author)JamesTB132010-06-25

those work ok, but the other type works better

If you use strike-anywheres, you can wrap a pice of sandpaper around them instead of a match striker. Also, ground matcheads are more effective than visco fuse as an explosive. Cool 'ible by the way! ^^

Sweet!!! How well does the pull pin work?

Pyro_Freak (author)2009-06-03

why wouldnt you use airsoft bb's?

1spartan95 (author)Pyro_Freak2009-07-01

Corns cheaper, and you're not wasting ammo you could shoot.

pandaboy292 (author)1spartan952009-07-30

but you are wasting corn you could eat. use pebbles.

dabombmaker (author)pandaboy2922009-08-14

I blame people like you for those stupid warnings on things: warning do not place bag over head warning do not eat chlorine tablets warning rubber ducky is not a real life saving device

hairydevil (author)dabombmaker2009-08-14

look man, i just dont want to here some kid ductaped one of these to his eye and went blind. or at least i don't want to be blamed for it

mrwaffles2 (author)hairydevil2012-05-15

Hey ummm I sort of duct taped 8 all together and then tapes it to my mouth, because I thought the heat would pop the popcorn and I wouldnt have to use the microwave. Luckily it only slit the inside of my throat and now I have severe blood loss and could die!! (just kidding)

me? i wasnt talking to you i was talking to panda, he said put pebbles in it! lol

pandaboy292 (author)dabombmaker2009-08-14

so you mean all those years i was eating chlorine tablets with a plastic bag over my head and was trying to use a rubber ducky as a life raft i wasnt supossed to do that?

goldedrago (author)2012-03-10

Aron313 (author)2012-02-19

Make a cideo on how it works

chocowubbles (author)2009-08-01

Do any of the popcorn kernels pop when the thing explodes? That would be great! You would have a deadly weapon, and a convenient snack!

cjgrig01 (author)chocowubbles2011-06-17

dude thats amazing hehe um now just how much weed did u smoke?

chocowubbles (author)cjgrig012011-06-17

All of it

No the corn wouldn't explode. Popcorn takes a slower, lower temp heat to pop.

hairydevil (author)chocowubbles2009-08-03

maybe if you had some corn oil

stormz76 (author)2010-06-05

Will this go off in my hand or can i throw it like a real grenade?

hairydevil (author)stormz762010-06-25

you can throw it. it shouldn't go off for at least five seconds.

Derek Vigil (author)hairydevil2011-06-14

Oh well crap, you need to be pretty fast then, (not me lol)

axel nader (author)2010-03-10

The box of pain in the second pic is pretty scary. I don't want to go into your garage.                        <.<       >.>

JamesTB13 (author)axel nader2010-06-30

that's paint, but a box of pain is pretty funny.

axel nader (author)JamesTB132010-06-30

Yeah, I know. But a box of pain makes him seem like s serial killer or something of that sort. In any case a box of PAIN is more dramatic.

Derek Vigil (author)axel nader2011-06-14

A canister of PAIN is probably worse.

PJPEEJ (author)2011-05-07

Wuts the purpose of the bottle cap? And where does the fuse go when the cap is on?

PJPEEJ (author)2011-04-30

Hey like the ible. I was wondering, where can i buy the fuse, and does the container explode? If not, what is the container for?

hairydevil (author)PJPEEJ2011-04-30

you can buy the fuse at and ship it anywhere in the us. what do you mean by container?

PJPEEJ (author)hairydevil2011-05-07

nevermind. The container is for the cut up fuse.

PJPEEJ (author)hairydevil2011-05-06

It says in step 1 "a container of some sort". What is that for?

hairydevil (author)PJPEEJ2011-05-06

to catch the fuse you cut up

Orro (author)2010-12-31

If I was to use black powder as a explosive, how many grains would I need to use?
I use Goex FF
