Being in the independent movie field is a pretty tough job. The costs for everything, then time put forth to create a good product. In hobbies such as this, D.I.Y. projects can come very much in handy. Props online can be very expensive, so making them yourself is a life saver. Especially when your wallet is anorexic, or when more is going out than coming in. No Action movie is complete with out a gunfight scene, and all gun fights need some grenades to make it look even more awesome. While being on a small budget, I created the Hand Grenade Prop. Seeing how i forgot to take pictures, I had to borrow them from Indymogul.com. But the same idea is still there. And your wallet won't take so much of a blow. In fact, if you HAVE to buy every material needed to construct this, it would only amount to about $10.

I introduce to you...

Step 1: What You Will Need

Quick List:

Empty Deodorant Can
Key Ring
Map Pin
Old unwanted MousePad
Flat Black Spray paint
Hot Glue Gun

Cool. This looks more like a non-frag grenade but here is my baseball-grenade instructable; <br> <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/3-Hand-Grenades/
you forgot to tell how to put on the map key but it looks so cool
theres no map key<br /> its map pin <br /> key ring<br /> <br /> douffus<br />
you spelt duffus wrong....
Actually, it's not a real word according to spellcheck, though you both seem to have the concept down and are practicing it wonderfully.
lol its still funny tat hes insulting someone and he overthinks a word
You do realize I just insulted <em>both</em> of you, right?<br>
According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, doofus is actually a word:<br> <br> <strong>doo&bull;fus</strong> |ˈdoōfəs| (also <strong>du&bull;fus</strong>)<br> noun ( pl. doofuses) informal<br> a stupid person.<br> <br> ORIGIN 1960s: perhaps an alteration of goofus , or from Scots doof [dolt.]<br> <br> <em>Please</em>, stop <em>insulting</em> people especially when you are <em>wrong</em>.<br> <br> Good day.<br> <br> P.S. I <strong>do not intend</strong> to <em>insult</em> you.
And you, my good sir, do not seem to understand the concept of necroing a post.
I just intended to tell you that &quot;doofus&quot; is a word, my friend. Necroing is not in my to do list. I understand the concept of necroing. I apologize for seemingly not understanding the concept of necroing, that I made you worry about me not knowing about the concept of necroing. By the way, necroing is not a real word. :)
A real word, no, but I always forget where the apostrophe goes.
yep i just have no feelings really lol
Excellent and very resourceful. Thank you so much for this.
i used empty can of &quot;Off&quot; bugspray
Absolutely Unbelievable Its Amazing I Have All The Materials Good Job Mate :)
hah, you started every letter with a capital.<br />
no he didn't
Smart Arse.
i meant every word.
Very nice idea! Never noticed before how badass an Axe can looks! ;) <br>Made two up to now and added some grip elements made out of black sponge rubber. Goes along very nicely with my modded Nerf Guns - can't wait to test my new gear &quot;in the field&quot;! Good work =D
This has probably already been stated, but for anyone in the US, you can buy a dummy grenade (an actual grenade with the bottom hollowed out and no fuze/firing mechanism) for about $8. <br><br>Just thought some people might like to know that.
nice,been ;looking how to make dis.throwing oranges at an enmy is wrong
Wow this is a really cool idea but my question is what is a map pin?
a push pin.
??? im wondering what a push pin is

You're serious?
In Indiana we call them thumb tacks not push pins
<a rel="nofollow" href="http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&amp;source=hp&amp;q=push+pin&amp;gbv=2&amp;aq=f&amp;oq=&amp;aqi=">http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&amp;source=hp&amp;q=push+pin&amp;gbv=2&amp;aq=f&amp;oq=&amp;aqi=</a><br/>
for all your push pin needs
can u use a soda can
&nbsp;Very nice. might also want to add the lever...
isn't this the one from indy mogul??????? <br />
Awesome! I'm going build that one and throw it in my best friend's house *evil laugh*
I would use a painted airsoft grenade BB holder. You can get 2 for only $8
Hey so at least some of those pictures are from this tutorial by wraith 5 <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.indymogul.com/post/10801/wesleys-weekly-presents-prop-grenade.">http://www.indymogul.com/post/10801/wesleys-weekly-presents-prop-grenade.</a> Are you wraith 5 or did you use those pictures or what?<br/>
NO NO NO!!! I am nowhere as cool and godlike as wraith5 is... Actually if you look in the beginning, i said I used pictures I found Online. I Just simply used his pictures to take his model (Slightly improved) and to bring the prop hand grenade model and instructions to instructables.
Oh okie dokie then never mind.
dude amasing i made one waiting for a pic so it looks sweet TIGER 471 M80 MAX
this is actually a very good idea. these make very nice looking grenades. i found that matte paint looks better than gloss or satin, and i also used acrylic paint which meant i didn't need to cover anything up to paint it. truly a very good idea. I would suggest that you could even paint some in different colours with added graphics to resemble smoke grenades or Tabun Gas. Great instructable :)
wow! great instructable! i am a teenager, and i have a budget of 0$ for my feature movies, so this was a GREAT way to spice up the action films! thanks! (i cant even afford my own camera, my Grandma actually gave me my High Definition camera for Christmas, lol!)
that looks just like the ones used in sin city. awesome instructable dude. i just finished touching up mine.
sweet naess, put it on sticktowhatyouknow.com
Dude! Awesome site! Thanks for the link, I'm so gonna use this site!
