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...
The HAND GRENADE PROP!!!

Step 1: What You Will Need

Quick List:

Empty Deodorant Can

welcome
Awesome! I'm going build that one and throw it in my best friend's house *evil laugh*
<p>HE SHALL TASTE OBLIVION!!! Muahahahahaha!</p>
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.
<p>thanks. I need some for my movie I'm making. It will be released soon.</p>
Absolutely Unbelievable Its Amazing I Have All The Materials Good Job Mate :)
hah, you started every letter with a capital.<br />
<p>this instruct able is full of incorrect grammar.</p>
no he didn't
Smart Arse.
i meant every word.
you forgot to tell how to put on the map key but it looks so cool
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
<p>I know a neat place for you to go! It is called school. You desperately need it.</p>
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

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/
Excellent and very resourceful. Thank you so much for this.
i used empty can of &quot;Off&quot; bugspray
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

Wow this is a really cool idea but my question is what is a map pin?

You're serious?
In Indiana we call them thumb tacks not push pins

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.
