Airsoft Grenade?

This area is for the discussion of BB or airsoft sub machine guns, and or other small arms such as pellets. No home made BB or airsoft guns should ever be used in a match where you shoot other people... they are too powerful.

I have been working on different designs for an airsoft grenade that detonates after a few seconds and is soft, but I do not want it to be dangerous in any way, just to make a lot of noise and possibly fragment (as a cool effect, not looking for an account ban, guys). I can't think up a shell that is cheap, effective, and easily replaced after detonation. Also, I was hoping for something non-pyrotechnic as the detonation method. Maybe wetted popcorn used to fill a grenade mold (You know, the gooey stuff) and allowed to dry? (Cheap is what I'm going for.)
Thanks for any ideas.

Maybe something like a large easter egg, or if you if you have a vacum forming table make a carving of disired shape and size,and make you own casings. I dont know how you want to do this but i have made a couple airsoft claymores that you throw and then you pull a string that pulls a pin and releases a spring airsoft bbs like a shot gun.( or you can usepaintballs, which was the original conceptfor the claymore) oh and it is about the same power of a shot as a crappy walmart gun.

Yeah, but spring power can only deliver it's payload in one or two directions... but I'm looking for a full case burst, flinging bb's in a larger, nearly 360-degree $pan. I appreciate the idea, though!

Rocket propelled projectiles, pyrotechnic smoke bombs, or any other burning projectiles would qualify as an incendiary projectile.

I know not much has been mentioned about explosives in this topic, but before anyone starts to - STOP because only a topic lock could come from it.

How does this violate the rules?

He doesn't want to use explosives.
He wants a <b>controlled</b> release of the projectiles.
He wants the device to release known projectiles (paintballs or airsoft pellets), not shrapnel.

It might stretch the no-shooting-at-people rule, but he seems to be safety conscious. I want to see where this goes. If it strays toward dangerous, I'll lock it myself.
Please leave the modding to the mods.

Use a couple of thoes party poppers. The spring loaded ones. You can modify the twister thingie so it pops when it hits the ground. then put a piece of paper ovet the front and load it with BB's.

I was just warning people not to talk about explosives because it is sure to come up. I'll admit did overreact because I ust skimmed the topic and responses. Sorry, I'm just plain tired of locked topics because of explosive projectiles and such, and hopefully this won't be one.

So I guess this is supposed to be something that explodes, like a water balloon (not bomb) on impact?

Thats a good idea. Fill a water baloon with airsodt BBs and water then throw it.

How bout an electric motor with a 2 sided paddle that spins up after a certain time? It would probably have to be placed straight up, but it would spray the BBs everywhere safely.
