I want to build a paint bomb.

not a grenade

not a mine

A bomb.


Im thinking like a cheap pressure cooker with a small bottle hooked up to go off on some sort of signal, with tubes attached three nozzles on top, angled at 45 degrees or so for maximum coverage. Fill it with a LOT of paint and set it someplace, triggered by pulling a really long string maybe. Im talking like the kind of bomb that will paint an entire squad when used in teh open woods. Just the thing for a scenario game, eh?

For construction.... Here is what I have brainstormed:

take a cheap pressure cooking pot (buy for under $20 on Ebay) and make holes in teh top.
take 3 sections of PVC pipe or something and attach narrow spray nozzles.
put these in through the top with the nizzles angled outward at 45 degrees, and with the bottom of the tube near the bottom of the pot.
seal the tubes into teh top of the cooker using lock-tite or something
make anotehr hole to fit a hoze from a small CO2 cylinder, with a valve and hammer setup sort of like in a master mine, attached to a timer or a long cord that can be used to activate it from a long way away, or possibly as a tripwire.
This might work better with a few 12 gram cylinders inside teh body, but how to set them off would be a devil of a trick. Maybe a plate attached to the top with PVC mounts for 3 12 grams, with a spring pushing it down towards nails or something to set off teh 12 grams, and a catch on top with a spring attached... smoething like that




hide that bad boy with some vegetation, or bury it, and use the triggering system of your choice. Dont be nearby when it goes off

I want to try and get it field legal... pyrotechics are out :P

I was hoping for a more than 20ft radius, an M80-TR can beat that. I was thinking more like 50+

That'd be cool man. Tell us if it works. If it does, add in a picture too.
