Picture of Explosive rounds for your BB or pellet gun!
This is my first instructable. Hope you like it! I know I do...

My dad once told me how to shoot explosive rounds from my BB/pellet gun. I was amazed to see how well it worked, and I finally have a chance to show it off. First of all: DON'T BE DUMB AND BURN SOMETHING DOWN!!!! If you do, I am not liable. It shouldn't happen as long as your careful.

Anyway, lets get to the fun stuff...

Step 1: Get some strike anywhere matches.

Just get some strike anywhere matches. I got 250 of 'em at Vons really cheap.

Step 2: Get your matches out, and get your BB/pellet gun out.

This instructable won't work if you don't have strike anywhere matches. To see if you truly have a strike anywhere match, it should have a differently-colored tip from the rest of the match. Mine are red with a white tip.

Step 3: Put the match in the BB/pellet gun.

Put the match in the BB/pellet gun and make sure the tip is facing outwards, like in the image.

i don't have a bb gun but i do have an airsoft gun. thanks for the idea
an airsoft gun is a bb gun, an airsoft gun shoots plastic or metal bb's, it doesnt have to be metal bb's to be a bb gun.
Au contraire, A bb is a Ball Bearing. Ball Bearings are made of metal. An airsoft gun is not a bb gun, its a toy. You can not kill a rabbit, squirrel, mouse, etc with a airsoft gun! Unless I guess you can get close enough to bash it with the gun itself.

Thats not a bb gun, this is a bb gun...http://www.instructables.com/id/BB-Machine-GunNOT-AIRSOFT!!!!!/
just so u know, BB was actually the size of the rounds they used to use, the also had B and BBB, but BB was the most common so that was just adopted as the name. BB does not stand for ball bearing

correct. BB, BBB, B is the size of the shot used in shotgun shells. For whatever reason be it adequate size shot, easy enough to fire from a cheap gun, cheap to produce, etc BB was chosen for these, initially cheap airguns.

Believe what you will...
bb means ballistic bullet, or a small, cheap, not-so-dangerous bullet replacement for target practice.
supercoke, i believe you have been mislead. if you took, perhaps, three seconds to consider the words "ballistic bullet" you would realize that it is a very redundant set of words. bullets are ballistic, otherwise, if they were explosive, well, first off, civilians in the united states are not permitted to own explosive bullets. ballistic bullet is a term so redundant, it is obviously not the true meaning of BB.

lanman, i side with you on this arguement, BB is an acronym that represents the words Ball Bearing.
MOd up ur airsoft gun. Mine fires at over 900 fps!
What do you mean mod up?
make an ible' please
HAHA thats funny " An airsoft gun is not a bb gun, ITS A TOY haha. You can not kill a rabbit, squirrel, mouse, etc with a airsoft gun! Unless I guess you can get close enough to bash it with the gun itself."
ive killed some lizards withh an air soft gun... and im not talking about the gieko lizard... im talking about a 13 inch lizard(with tail)

I agree with you about the not being a bb gun part but my friend killed a snake by shooting the snake in the head at a 10 foot range

not always true my airsoft gun killed a bird and mouse from about 10 feet away you just have to shoot it in the head or eye.
I've killed a sparrow with a walther p22 airsoft pistol.
You must be proud.... You're a terrible person.
not if he uses the dead squirell for something, like a hat. actually, it would probably be best to keep the squirell population down a bit, anyway.
We gots a few hawks. No squirrels, or they dont last long, without bbs
 I agree with CapnTac! thats Horrid!
No way. I have the same gun, and there's no way it could kill a sparrow.
I was about 15 feet away.
That's not something to be proud of in my opinion.
now try killing jack sparrow with your damn wather

my airsoft sniper shoots metal 6mm airsoft bbs at 700 fps? can i kill a rabbit with that, apparently not
ive killed a rabbit with less so it should work u just need to be close

my brother has an airsoft rifle that could quite possibly kill a squirral though i have not tested that as my mom would be annoyed if dead squirrels started showing up all over our yard
just because everybody's discussing I wanna join... hello everyone.. :-) i think that: airrifles fire led,tin or copper bolts and they are 4,5mm in diameter airsoftguns fire plastic BB that's 6,6mm in diameter
i have a air rifle, and it's true that it fires lead pellets however. it is a .22 i.e. the pellets are 2.2millimeters is diameter you can even get .177 which means the pellets are 1.77 millimeters in diameter. that's how it is in the uk just thought i'd say
i do believe that the .177 bb's are 17.7 hundreds of an inch IE 17.7/100 or 177/1000
and a .22 cal is 22 hundred's of an inch 22/100
lol they are really more like .222,.223..224 or even .221 thousands of an inch
you realize how small 2.2mm is I live in the US and I do
teddy1998 zitz4 years ago
yeah 2.2 mil is as big as 2 "i"s next to each other
what size font???? jk
actually, a .22 is 5.5mm and a .177 is 4.5mm
cal... .22 = cal

A .22 cal is actually 5.5 mm and a .177 is 4.5mm

air soft guns can kill things.. it depends how powerful they are... and where they strike.

You can get tin, bismuth, lead, copper alloy pellets for air guns to. they shoot faster then lead pellets (up to 20% faster) which can make air guns illegal weapons in some places (like in Canada for instance)

you can also get .20, .25 and a few other calibers, but the range of ammo goes down significantly.
they make up to .50 cal pellets.
.22 caliber means 22/100ths of an inch .117 means 177/1000ths of an inch DONT do this with springers (break barrel, side lever, or underlever). It will work fine with multi stroke pneumatics (like your Pumpmaster) , co2 (anything using little 12gr co2 powerlettes) or Pre Charged Pneumatics (if you have one of those, you don't need me to tell you)
