My idea for the Nerf gun mentioned earlier in the blog has fallen through. I turned out that the tools and materials which i have aren't suitable for the specific design. I have changed the design so that it resembles more of a hunting rifle, similar to the one seen in the video game Fallout 3. I will soon be posting the blueprint for the design. It also uses the same at2k and long shot clip as the other design but its all attached to a single piece of wood, the stock.

Again I was messing around with firecrackers (one of these days I'm gonna blow up something i dont want to. lol) and had the idea from a airsoft mine to make, what I'm gonna call a flash mine. It consists of the same firecracker that I used a the trigger in the smokebomb I made before. It simply consist of a pressure pad, springs, and a small firecracker. The idea behind it was to suprise the enemy and notify your team that they are there. I designed it to be easy enough to make many of them and if your playing airsoft/paintball in a forest so that you can bury them.

I was messing around this weekend with a couple of small firecrackers and a few smoke bombs, trying to build one that would be the easiest to make and have the most effective pull-pin trigger. I had the idea of exposing part of the firecracker (it was one where you pull the strings to make it explode) and then placing it in a small piece of PVC pipe filled with two smoke bombs, then sealed at one end with a hot glue coupler. My friend, HiddenZombie and I went up to an open field where we tested our design. The first one was a complete failure, which I believe was due to the firecracker not being close enough to the smoke bomb. Luckily the second one we tested was more successful, and proved that the firecracker was an effective means of setting it off. I am hopefully going to make some more of the smokes and next time I going to attempt to make a layer burning smoke using a candle.

Recently I have been working with some PVC piping and came across the idea of making a bolt action Nerf gun. (for those of you who dont know, a Nerf gun is a toy gun that fires foam darts, however many people modify them, and trust me they can leave welts! :P). I'll later post a design of the gun. If you have any ideas or creations post them please. If you know someone else who has something they have made tell them and get them to post!
