Intro: Make Quick Use Flare for Self Defense
This shows you how to make a flare that can be used to scare away
people or animals...
just throw towards dangers way within 3 seconds
i always have one with me whenever i go out in case there are stray dogs
Step 1: Materials
this instructable ,as what i always like, utilizes sparklers
those metal powder on a stick thing
what you need are,
1 a metal encased marker,
2 six sparklers,
6 aluminium foil
7 optional, lolly sticks
Step 2: Preperation
get your sparklers,
remove any paper or stuff outside that wraps it,
get your paper and fold it into a bowl
now to remove the powder, use the scissors to scrape off the powder onto the bowl
repeat until all five are done.
Step 3: Filling
get your marker and remove the tip and cover
get lolly sticks and line up on the side of the marker
hold in place with sparkler wires
now pull out the ink felt that is inside
put a straw in the middle
pour the gunpowder inside the marker outside the straw...
if you want a bang, fill half only
later i will show you how to make the bang
Step 4: Fuse
get matches or use another sparkler and stick down the straw.
pull out the straw... put aluminium foil around the rim. ensure it doesn't cover the top of the sparkler and it is tight
Step 5: Light It Up
here is where the fun starts. around the point where the foil touches the sparkler, widen that hole and light the sparkler with a lighter
after it starts to burn into the foil, close the hole(optional)
and lob to dangers way with hole pointing there and wait till it fizzles then run or watch some fur( dog, bear, human,) get singed.
Step 6: The Bang
if you want a bang, pour the powder in and compress... get a cork, make a hole in it, and push a sparkler through.
stick the cork in the marker and put lots o foil around the rim.
light it and since there is half full, you have time to (optional: pull out sparkler) wrap the load of foil around the hole pressure will buid up and fire the cork or the sparkler or both out. a airmailed this to my pen pal and he went hunting.
he was detained after police found a rabbit with fur all burnt, hole with a sparkler stuck in it and obviously dead.
he cried that night
i won't be able to use this on a bear as in singapore we don't have bears except in the zoo.
now don't you go kill bobby bear at that zoo of yours...
