Mines?

Does anyone have any good links to how to do a homemade pressure mine of trip wire mine for paintball? I have acess to any skills, tools, or machines needed, so they can be complicated if nesecary.

I've got a few ideas. Never had a means to build prototypes and beta test. Send me a PM or email and we'll shoot the breeze.

Paintmine guide/walkthrough

Figured out a simpler triggering mechanism... just got to get the drawing scanned.

Yes, but the effective ones are around $50.

I've been doing some R&D but like steve says, Haven't tried to build one yet.

I was going to use pre charged cylinders of paint, pop up sprinkler heads, sprinkler valve,and a triggering mechanism most likely a motion detector.

Problem being I didn't WANT to babysit a dozen or so mines all weekend. I want to play paintball. So it got put down the list of things to tinker with.

My goal was a design costing less than $50 and simple enough that almost anybody could build. With a POOL of say 25 mines with a 25 foot kill radius, you would have a serious minefield. One or two would be some nice booby traps that could kill your own just as easily as the other team. Thought it could be handy if the objective was about to be overrun. Just set it to turn on in 20 seconds and raise my hands and walk out with the rest of my guys. They would occupy it and then all get killed. Maybe before they raised the flag... Certainly make a counter attack a lot easier.

My R&D was for a multi shot, 'smart', self rearming land mine. Couldn't keep it under $50 and the "Smart" part was electronically beyond my knowledge level unless I was going to use a simple time delay to rearm. I wanted the motion detector to 'detect' when the guy LEFT sensor range to rearm and not have a delay. Like those restroom toilets that flush when you leave.

Looked at IR photocell 'trip wires' but again how to deal with the falling leaf was an electronic issue I could not solve for under $50.

If anybody has that skill and knowledge, I could use some help.

So I decided maybe I could build several but instead of concealing them, just make them VERY visible. Put up a sign that says "MINEFIELD" and deploy them along with a LOT of dummy mines that don't work but look the same. Let them figure out which ones are the REAL ONEs. That would slow them up and most likely make them go around.

We have imaginary Nukes, Space based particle weapons, artillery and carrier strikes. Why not imaginary minefields? An engineer could deploy a tape line that a player cannot go within without being automatically eliminated. Another engineer on either team can take the tape line down and re deploy it elsewhere. Basically de activate it or capture it. You would need some countermeasures such as a anti mine tank, or roll of toilet paper 'explosive' shot out of a bazooka to demo a path through the minefield. Air craft doing the same? Clearing a path through a minefield with bombing etc.

Could liven up a game and be a very useful tactical tool.

Here's a couple of videos of a trip wire mine a team mate of mine made. They are simply surgical tubing filled with a syringe inside a pvc housing. A homemade nozzle on the end of the tube creates a nice spray pattern. It's triggered when a trip wire pulls a clip off the end of the tube.



In all you could probably make one for $10-$15 depending on availability of the parts.

I stepped on one at NJNAM this year. I didn't tell anyone because it didn't dawn on me until later what it actually was and nobody called me out. I only saw it for an instant, so forgive my lack of information.
Basically, it was a coil of surgical tubing filled with paint. It was similar to the paint grenades made from the tubing, but they weren't filled with air. I stepped on the tubing, paint went flying up.

Hey, fbkboe, could you post some more details on how to build the paint mine? I'm putting together a scenario game back home and this type of thing would make the game infinitely more enjoyable.

Going to try to reproduce the "anthrax nuke" (baby powder ftw) too!

Not to mention infrared sensors across doors bobby-trapped with paint.

Heres how i made of plan of my mines what i did was fill up about 6 inchs of surgical tubing (with some paintballs i soaked in some hot water to expand them an then bust them in a container) an wire tie off the ends and then basicly made a very light cut all over it like a spiral staircase type cut. when the test subject "me" stepped on it i was too happy as i covered in paint. very simple you only need like: 20 paintballs, 2 wire ties, 6 inchs of surgical tubing, and a syringe. just put the paintballs in the container with hot water let them expand bust them get the syringe fill it up wire tie a end of a tubing and fill it an then wire tie the other end and "LIGHTLY" cut a spiral staircase around it an lay it on the ground. an with these for around a cost of lemme check tubing about 75 cents, paintballs 40 cents, and wire ties (box of like 100) is 2$. so for about 1.65$ you can make one and have a nice mine field of about 25 of these for 41.25$ for 1 mine for 50$ or 25 for 41.25? yea ill go with the 25 mines.

Just a quick footnote to what Furb noted, that is
it takes more than one mine to make an effective
mine field. Of course if all you want to do is take
out the first or second guy in a column as they
come down a trail, that's one thing, but to make
the whole team stop, or back up you'll need at
least a dozen mines laid out in a pattern not only
on the trail but on both sides as well.

BTW, the mine shown in those earlier video clips
looks almost identical to a patented design which
was marketed some years ago by a Canadian firm.
I should know, becuse I used to sell them on my
old website. They are very simple to make and
very effective, especailly if you use the three
outlet spray nozzle. Only real drawback and this
applies to all such mines, is they lack any noise
when they're detonated.

Here's a link ot a clip which shows a paint
claymore mine which not only paints you, it'll
also scare the heck out of you. Only trouble
is the makers restrict sales to DOD end users
only.

Something like this but with wire ties on the end (just the grenade itself) with a light sprial staircase cut around it. Sorry my camera broke a week ago an havnt had time to get a new one.

An thats how its done with land mine fields.
