L.I.M.P: Loud Incendiary Matchstick Projectile

This ammo is incompliance with the spudfiles rulebook.

Da Rules:
A. Solid propellant: Any substance containing all the chemical elements required to enable sustained combustion without the presence of additional oxidizers. This includes but is not limited to gunpowder, thermite, and many commercial and/or homemade pyrotechnic compounds.

B. Explosive device: Any device that has the capability to release large amounts of stored energy rapidly.
i. Discussion of fireworks as projectiles is prohibited.
ii. Discussion of "soda bottle bombs" or any other similar devices that may cause shrapnel as a result of uncontrolled rupture is prohibited

C. Incendiary projectile: Any projectile that is capable of producing flame.
i. Rocket propelled projectiles, pyrotechnic smoke bombs, or any other burning projectiles would qualify as an incendiary projectile.

I know the name of this ammo DOES have the word incendiary, but then again, it just makes a nice loud bang, without fire, sharpel, and it isnt at all fireworks. Visit my blog at:

If the mods got anything to protest against this, please do so.

Given the small scale nature of matchstick rockets, I dont think anyone will mind. If you're talking about taking 3000 of them and mashing them up, however, That might be a bit controversial.

But why did you start a new topic to say this?

An alternative that you could use is taking two pennies and putting paper caps between them and then wrapping the whole thing in electrical tape. When you shoot it at a wall or something hard, the pennies will make the caps go off, making a pretty loud bang.
