Step 10: How to Use It

To use the grenade carefully pull out the safety pin and throw. What should happen is when the pin is in any extra pressure in the grenade pushing against the BB (like the pressure from dropping it or bumping it while running) will try to push the BB out but the pin will stop the BB. When you remove the pin, as long as your carefull the BB will stay in the neck of the grenade and the collar will help it stay there. When the grenade hits something the extra pressure will push the BB out and the paint will be sprayed every where in the area. The pressure for tube will cause the grenade to spin so the paint should sray all around. If you keep the pin and find the empty grenade you can re-fill it, put a new BB in and you can re use it. The splatter zone (area that the paint covers) varies but is usally around or over 1.5 meters. Have fun!
wher els can i get this toob josh
home depot or lowes<br />
Iv never seen it at either<br />
It's in the plumbing section near where all the other types of 1/4&quot;, 1/2&quot;, and 3/4&quot; vinyl tubing is coiled up and sold by the foot.
<p>Oh, well i dont know what to say. i got mine at home depot</p>
Ok<br />
kinny drugs its colled a comdom
you could use a balloon. (the long thin kind)
no you cant
Cus it too big around to hold a bb and doesn't have enough pressure<br />
ummm..... okay.
<p>If You don't have a water gun pump you can use a 60ml plastic syringe.</p>
<p>I like it!</p>
I am working on how to make a small paintball practice field. Need some help and it would be asome if someone is interested. Also the grenade really works and is very useful.
Vary nice ill stop buying the stupid tippmann, Bt Grenade crap
pretty cool , man.
it sounds sweet <br />
wat type of not is good???? cause hard for me doing a simple water ballon knot
its just a normal knot.....you tie it before theres any pressure on it so its just like tying string
Correction: It is called an overhand knot.
So, if I were to pull the pin and put this grenade in a rocket launcher that fires it across my yard at high velocity, will it keep from exploding until it hits it's target, or will it burst inside my launcher the moment i pull the trigger
Good question..... no idea. All I can suggest is to try it. I think if you put lots of packing behind in it would probably work. Or you could try a modified way of pinning in and tethering the pin to the launcher. Ya do that... instead of putting a pin through the end just fold the end over and put a clip (like a nose plug type clip) on the end that will come off easy and just tether it. you dont need a lot to keep the bb from slipping.
ya a vid would be nice
Considering I made this instructable 5 years ago..... its not gona happen. And there is a video of it going off.
do you have any idea what wall thickness you used or does it not matter <br> <br> <br> <br>
where do you get the tubing. and also could you add a video so i can see how well it works? <br>
Look through the comments to find where to get it and there was a video somewhere on here but I dont have one anymore if its not here anymore.... sorry.
Iis this could work with water as well as paint?
Yep.... when I was designing this I used water to do all my tests.
i when u use it pick the stuff up and make like a good place to put it in then when u get back home make more
what does your comment mean
Could you use a bikes inner tube for the tubing?
what diameter is the tubing?
the answer to that is already in the comments
you can get surgical tubing at most hardware stores
the other advantage to using the surgical tube is its shape. you should be able to put one in your ammo pod to protect it when out in the field...<br />
what kind of tubing do you use?
between 20 and 16 gauge wire works for the pins.
Surgical Tubing....Sorry it took so long to respond, for some reason I didn't get a notification.
or latex tubing as it is known in hardware stores.
where can i get the pipe
you can just use a large syringe, you can get them from your local pharmacy (Rite aide, Wall Greens)
I would suggest not boiling paint down. the paint inside the shell is water soluble but the boiled down shell has dye that will mix in with the other paint that <strong>will not wash off</strong>.<br/>
ok, Thank
you could just use water, its free, and you could add washable finger paint to it for a water paint mixture, which is cheaper than using paint balls.
