well. first off, ill say use the spell check, before someone goess off on you for it. second, you dont want to use a rubberband kind of thing, you want to use compresed air, more power, less space. davidvaini's preloaded cartrages might be what you are looking for. its pretty much just a burst disk and a schrader. also, he might sell them

Homemade 'Squadbuster'...just need some smallish zip ties, paint, a big veterinary syringe, a length of latex rubber tubing(surgical tubing), a small ball bearing or BB, and a short piece of wire. Use the zip tie to close off one end of a 4" section of surgical tubing,use the syringe to inflate the surgical tube w/ paint to the desired size, and pinch it off. Force the BB or ball bearing into the tube to block the pain flow, and push the wire through the tubing to keep the BB from popping out. Once it's time to use it, just pull the pin and CAREFULLY load the grenade into the tube, ball bearing first...then, cry havoc and set loose the dogs of war. :twisted:

id say just use a waterbaloon and a turkey baster. also, depending on who you play with and where you play (not legal in all states) an m80 in the middle of the waterbaloon will make the radius much bigger, but youd need to use something other than a baloon, like an easter egg.

I'd think 20-40 PSI should be low enough to keep them stable. point the BB downrange, though, so if it did go off in the barrel it would be like a flamethrower, and not just drain itself into your barrel. Just like the real Tippmann squadbusters, these do usually take a bit of shock to 'go off'...but keeping the safety wire in place is a good idea just to keep from marking yourself.

This will give you and idea.If scaled up a little it would be like a shotgun more then a grenade but it should have the same effect.

Yup...that's all it is...the tube's rubber, the version I told you about is a single chamber, which would be more able to launch from a grenade launcher. I know Tippmann used to have a mortar, which used a single chamber grenade, not unlike this

http://www.tippmann.com/asiapacific/product_guide/grenadedetails.aspx?id=713

But the grenade was sleeved in a spiral cardboard(like a toilet paper roll) tube. I think this idea would produce the most grenade-like effect, especially if you want something for bunker busting.
