Step 1: Supplies

This project will require the following:
1 utility knife
1 box of TNT POP-ITS(R)
Saran wrap
Airsoft BB'S
Masking tape 
2 Small Bowls(Not Necessary, But Helpful)
SAFETY GOGGLES!!!

Step 2: The Making Of:

First You will need to use your utility knife to cut the saran wrap. make a piece about 3 inches long.

Now, open the pop-its and empty them carefully into one of the bowls. Unwrap the pop-its (use the knife, or you can just twist it open.) and pour the contents onto the saran wrap. DO NOT empty them into a pile, or it WILL blow up in your face! Empty them into areas of the saran wrap and carefully move the contents into a pile.


Now add about 20 bb's into the pop-it rocks.

Now you need to score the masking tape so it will make a 1 inch strip come off.(scoring is finding where the tape will start to peel and taking the knife and cutting a thin line as far as you want to make a strip come off when you peel the tape to that location.)

Carefully pick up the saran wrap and make a bag. Pinch the bag you have just made as close to the mix as possible. BE CAREFUL! IT MAY EXPLODE!
Now tape it with the masking tape strip and move on to the next step.

umm, this is too unstable to be used safely. ive tried this before, and they just blow up in my hand when i grab them. the grenade is powerful, but i would look into another design that makes the grenade safer to handle. in a real airsoft barrtl, you want to grab a grenade, activate it, and chuck it really fast. with this one, you would have to pick it up, and do everything nice and slow, which ruins the tactical advantage... also, what would happen if you dropped it, had to jumpflat on your stomach for cover, or had the grenade get shot? bad things.

Pop-its arent too reliable, but they r cheap. I bought some other ones, called POP-POPs, it looks like a miniature cylindrical firework, but with no fuse. They were pretty expensive in PA, like 2$ for a box of 20 but they pop LOUD.
in MA those are called pop-snappers

 "LOUD" is not what's needed. a cheap, fairly stable, and mostly reliable over the counter AND legal explosive is all that's necessary.
Loud intimidates the person, and makes him s*** in his pants and run away. That's why people buy a humongous pistol instead of a small one, to intimidate the would-be robber.

 ... shotguns work too. one shot from my shotgun would send any robber packin.(in the air of course)
 i put these in my M203 grenade launcher 

i bet your cat was mad
