could you just tie a knot instead of using a ziptie?


Yes. That would definitely work, but you'd use an extra 1-2 inches of tube per grenade (just an estimate) and it could cut into your bottom line. If you did it for simplicity's sake, I can see doing this.

would regular paint like you buy to paint your house if you watered it down would that work. simple latex paint just in a gallon can instead of childrens section


Sure. You would have to use the appropriate thinner, however and I see 2 potential problems. 1--Certain paint thinners MAY (I'm guessing here) degrade the latex over time. And 2--These paints are probably not washable and may stain your expensive camo's.

heres a suggestion. take a hot needle and push it through the back end of the syringe and the plunger part. then you can put a pin through it and hold it in place freeing up some workspace for you. it will be pressurized when you return to work it but if you need a free hand its handy. just put two holes in the back of the syringe part then id add a few along the lenght of the plunger so you can have it hold in place at diffrent settings


Good idea, as this part of the filling process is the most vulnerable to leaks and spillage.

also where did you get that killer grenade chest?


Got it with one of those value bins of paintballs. DBX to be exact.

Good job, now I just have to try it myself..

But on the first picture look at the very right, I think someone has been doing some drinking before they made those gernades...

How well do they pocket. Like, could I put one in my dyes, adn not be worried about the pin falling outr?


I have an idea. maybe you could take some hot glue, and put a dab on the opposing end of the cotter pin, and stick the ziptie over both. No accidental discharge, and only a slight tug before pulling the pin.

Um, I might be asking a stupid question, but how do you thin down the paint?

Nice job by the way. This really does need to be stickied.

This is abosolutely pure genius. I must try this. I will, however, probably fail. But that's why this is great that they are so cheap.

Oooohhh great idea! This is assuming only you are using the grenades. For scent, don't use mint extract. Use those disgusting fish cubes! Wouldn't that smell excellent? Muahahahahaha... But that wouldn't be very nice.

Stocker: The pin is quite secure. I am quite confident dropping a loaded grenade (pin still in) onto the ground. They really are drop-safe if made according to this tutorial. I took the box in to show some of my drum students, and they were a little apprehensive when I demonstrated just how drop-safe the grenades are. I would feel confident storing them in your clothing while you play, as long as there is no danger of the grenade being punctured. I have yet to have one of these grenades go off with the pin still in.

Well, I did already mention this but I used plain ol' tap water.

Haha yes we were toying with the idea of using some strong and nasty "old lady" perfume to add to the humiliation factor....I like the idea of using foul-smelling stuff that reeks of fish or rotten milk or....well the possibilities are endless.
