Introduction: Tear Powder Bomb

Picture of Tear Powder Bomb

 For those who like this project, or thought it was dumb, thats ok. I have been working on a new tear bomb. It spreads the mixture over a much greater area, through smoke. Ask me if you want to know more.

these are snap shots from a video i took.
You will need:
- film canister 
- fire cracker or explosive of your choice.
- your favorite tear powder

Step 1: Poke a Hole.

 poke a hole in the bottom for the fuze. the fuze should fit pretty snug

Step 2: Fill With Tear Powder.

 im using a cornstarch chile powder mix, but a the best mix is cornstarch (or flour), chile powder, metal shavings, and or glass shavings.

Step 3: Put Cap On

 give it a shake.

how about some black pepper.

you can make it fuseless if you make it with strike anywhere match heads and a few small rocks then wrap it tight in tape. it will make a good size bang and you can still throw in the firecracker powder for a little extra.

the metal/glass shavings, are really nescessary?

 i am using a cheap m-90 but you might want something more powerful. You can use anything but i found that cornstarch tends to linger in the air more, and when cornstarch gets wet it gets kind of lumpy and thick. The powder sprayed pretty far. about 6 feet out of the end with the cap and about 3 feet out the end without the cap. I was hoping that the fire cracker would blow the whole cartridge into pieces  sending plastic and the powder mix every where. 

hell if u want 2 ward someone off badd enough take a toilet paper roll fill it with gunpowder and mix some bbs and pellets in and pack it tight tape it up to hold every thing togeather light it then run like hell!!.
