hey everybody, im back and am posting this instructable just in time for the 4th. everybody knows thos little classic snaps and a friend of mine said he used to throw them at eachother with his old friends. he also said they hurt alot, so i made these little bombers so you can still hear the sound but they wouldnt hurt. this was originally an idea for an explosive scrossbow bullet for a knex war so you could get a little more bang for your buck!

    you could just possible use the regular socket joint, it may not be as much of a full proof way of holding it but i think it should work cause the white rod will hold it in. try that, if it doesnt work i dont really know any other way. i hope that helps

    it was supposed to be an idea for an explosive crossbow bullet, but i didnt want to use any tape for some weird reason, and it kinda morphed into a grenade launcher bullet or a safer way to throw snaps at people :D

    But... Wouldn't throwing plastic at them hurt a lot too? Especially explosive plastic?

    sure, if you have an arm that can throw at at least 300 fps. it is much safer because the mini explosion from the snap wont happen on their skin.

    True. Although, then you risk being called "lame" for not throwing explosives at your friends!
