Thats really cool! Do you think it could be used with a bike pump? My friend is hosting a big 'ol airsoft war soon, and I need something to defend our base.

Use a water balloon filled with paint and stuffed in the barrel. when it fires it would burst the water bomb.

See how long it takes for 1 layer of aluminium foil to burst, then just layer it to get a decent time delay.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

I like it, and if you wanted to make it so your load doesn't fall out, add a second union at teh end and put in a piece of waxpaer that will hold in your stuff.

You should now make one that uses a small ball valve to bleed into the burst disk, and have the ball valve be triggered by a trip wire.

Why bother with the fish oil?

That's very nifty. I am mildly confused on how it works, but I'll probably get it later. I'll see if I can't be able to replicate something like it.

Wait so let me get this strait. You have to fill the granade with are and throw it a few seconds later? If you can't pre pressurize the chamber and have some sort of release mechanism then it's useless. Another thing is that if you were to use these it would spray in only one direction. You would need to make a chamber with drilled out holes to assure that pait will spray in all directions. Ill come up with my own designs. That pinhole idea is fairly decent though.
