Introduction: Air-Soft Grenade Thingy

Picture of Air-Soft Grenade Thingy

This instructable will tell you how to make an Air-Soft grenade thingy.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

These are the supplies you need to make this grenade.

Party Popper
Plastic BB's
Bic Pen
Flat Head Screw Driver
Highly Maneuverable Gloves

Step 2: Taking Apart the Popper

Insert the flat headed screw driver into the edge of the popper and pop out the cardboard cap and keep it for later.

Step 3: Removing the Confetti

This is where you might want to where gloves to protect your hands, I didn't because I'm a bad example. Carefully use the pen to remove the confetti and leave the white cardboard alone.

Step 4: Filling the Popper

Now take your BB's and pour about 20 into the empty popper and replace the cap.

Step 5: Making Sure the Cap Is On

Take the back of your pen and press evenly around the edges of the cap to secure it into place. Then aim and shoot, and it scatters the BB's every where.

P.S. I am not responsible for any injuries.

I'm sorry, but this is nowhere near a grenade. I'm not sure what to call this, other than a tried-and-false idea that's been used countless times.

Aside from lack of originality and improper naming, nice 'ible. If you shoot only one bb out of a bic pen using the pull-string thing as the propellant, it works a bit better.

Almost forgot, for a *more* realistic grenade-type thing, check out the concussion grenade I show you how to make in my instructable:

Let me know what you think!

??????????????????????????????????? this is the billionth time ive seen this idea!i!i!i!i!i!i!I

And yet it still is a piss-poor idea. Honestly, carrying a pocketful of bb's and throwing them is to greater effect.

superawesomekid78 (author)2010-12-28

dude, try removing the explosives from the pull string thing. they are useful for lots of things.

josefu0 (author)2010-03-19

it more like a shotgun fire than a bomb.

chopstx (author)2009-06-08

how far do the bbs go?

singhjr96 (author)chopstx2010-03-17

about 5 feet. my friend made like 70 of these and put em all toghether then shot them at me during a macth from less than 10 ft away and they didnt even touch me the just rolled and fell out.

OMFG!!! (author)2010-02-14

I jammed like 4 of the little pull bombs in there and managed to gett all the strings out the back. next i filled the open space with thumb taks (the casing cracked in 5 places, while the taks shot out and dented my wall!) !!!!

meanbean (author)2009-08-31

I've tried this and im sorry but its awful. theres to much space in the barrel and the bbs go only about 5 feet srry.

darkpiggy12 (author)2009-08-01

how fast will it go

shadowsniper918 (author)2009-05-24

now what you have there is a portable shot gun

pyroboytodumax (author)2008-09-26

good job you learned to shoot airsoft bbs 3ft

no its more than 3 more like 50.

Rednecker52 (author)2009-04-19

the paper/cardboard thing in the bottom is required or it wont work. if you push it down tighter you will have a larger spread of bb's. lol i used stples once its like grenade shrapnel it shredded paper. :)

knoxarama (author)2009-04-08

i wanted to make something like this, except it use plastic shrapnel. It used those little red and white fishing lures and when you push down the button, vinger and bakin soda mix, build in pressure, then blow up.

hey can you put an instructable on your grenade

ThePorgemeister (author)2008-12-15

nice, probably works better than the water balloons I've been using!! and to everyone else, that is google earth, and it is probably supposed to look like a grenade.

maby a plasma grenade from halo

tmuterspaugh (author)2008-12-29

those pull fireworks hurt when they explode in ur hand. i held one once and pulled it and hurt for like 2 hours

peach_fart (author)tmuterspaugh2008-12-30

i got flash burns from a cone shaped cardboard one. horribly designed so half the explosion comes out of the hole where the tring you pull is!

unominame (author)2008-10-28

why would you need gloves for its just confetti?

Rokko8652 (author)unominame2008-11-17

Never mind, it's working fine now.

DethAginstDeath (author)2008-09-13

If you fill it up all the way with BB's, then the load will be too heavy to shoot and it will explode in all directions. Fill one up, then tape it to a wall or something. Add a tripwire and voila!

firebird11692 (author)2008-08-30
