WARNING: Do these at YOUR own risk.
I am NOT responsible (nor is this SITE) if you blow you, somebody or something up!


This is very simple, takes about ~5-10 minutes to do.

Things Required.
Toilet paper roll (empty)
Knife/pointy object.
BB's, corn, or peas.
Cherry bomb, air bomb fireworks, or black cats. I find cherry bombs work the best and they're fairly cheap.



First tare apart your firework of choice, until you source the "explosive" bit. Will look similar to this:


I find dismantling it from the top easiest. (Top being away from the ground spike)

Onto the toilet paper roll.
Simply poke a tiny hole in the side, so that the fuse may squeeze through. Too big, and pellets may fall out. Too small and your fuse won't fit.
Tape up one side completely, seal it nice and tight, you don't want anything falling out.

Take your "explosive" bit, feed the fuse through the small hole you poked through the tube. I like to tape it down on the side, so it doesn't rattle and fall out.

Fill it with your ammunition of choice, corn, peas, pellets or BB's.



Cram it full, then tape up the other end.

Light and throw.

Easy, simple and fun.
I have stood 2-3 feet away from these without any harm. Little loud, but nothing horrible.

Again. All of this is at your OWN risk. I am not responsible for squat!

Questions, feel free.

Another method if you have your PAL and access to black powder, is to use:

- Plastic easter eggs (painted);
- A shot glass or two of black powder into a balloon;
- Fuze inserted into that balloon and;
- Baking soda

If you wrapped it in electrical tape, you get a much better affect.

Done the Black powder method before, but used small PET bottles.

Fill the bottle most way with Corn, put in a cap full of black powder. Fuse through the cap. produces a nice overpressure bang and a good dispersion of corn.. and you feed the deer at the same time.
