I did consider dried food like beans or peas. I went to the grocery store with my Mitutoyo calipers and started measuring stuff in the dry goods section. Unfortunately there is too much variation in diameter and sphericity for me to make a pneumatic grenade that blasts beans or peas. It's too bad, they'd be biodegradable and cheap. They go into claymores quite well though.

There's your next project on the list of things to do:

- make yourself a big-ol roller mold that makes food-grade ammo for the Tor-nade-o
- R&D (aka - taste testing)
- Purree and mold
- Release several flavours of biodegradeable, edible, BB sized "yummunitions"
- ?
- Profit!

No I think the next things on his list are:

-finish first lot of grenades
-sell grenades
-make a fuck-ton of money
-continue making grenades
-make another fuck-ton of money

Lol. I know, peas and stuff vary ALOT. I want someone to create a BB mold so that we can use ground peas into bb's. Then people can use em in nades and m203's. All people would need is a bench vise or something to get a lot of pressure or something. Mix with some gelatin, but low amount of water with gelatin as binder...IDK.

M203 version.... Where this thing flies out and yeah... nuff said.

LOL I just noticed how thin the plastic was. Look at the picture, you can see the guides in the black version. Hey, are you going to try to make covers for these things like a pineapple cover and stuff? Or would that make it to big to fit into a pouch?

Also I was thinking about a mod for those German's for those reenactments of the world war. It would just involve modding the outside and stuff. and adding some foam stuff on the outside of the grenade. This grenade is going to be sweet for mods.

These photos were shot with a DSLR on motor drive with a flash and 3kW of halogen lighting.

The two shots are pretty interesting as you can see when the pellets were illuminated by the flash and when they were illuminated by only the halogens. The bright circle inside the softer streak are pellets illuminated the instant that the flash goes off. The softer streak is the reflected light from the halogens over the entire shutter duration. You can tell that the flash strobe has a much shorter duration than the shutter time because the bright circle of the lit pellet is still substantially round.

It's really neat seeing the transition from fast pellets emanating directly from the grenade in the first shot to much slower reflections from the ceiling and walls. The initial blast has pellets that almost all show up as longer dull streaks emanating from wherever the grenade was when it fired the pellet (it rolls around). Pellets moving perpendicularly from the origin and the camera show up as long streaks. Pellets moving directly away or right at the camera show up as intense dots or intense short streaks (moving almost parallel to origin to camera line).

In a shot right after the blast, you see a lot more bright spots floating around and streaks moving in odd directions (faster reflections). They show up more brightly because they reflect light back to the camera from the same postition for a much longer time.

Man I'm glad they didn't go through my filter. I tried putting on a plastic cover, but the strong flash lit up too much haze on it so I had to let the filter take the hits. It did get hit a bunch of times. I hate hearing the tink of pellets on Hoya glass.

Do you have any quantitative data on the grenades blast radius/range?
I know from experience it's impressive, but it'd be nice to see a number or two that would allow people to visualize the area of effect of one of these.
