Strange paintball...

This is a Strange Ordinance grenade. The M-69 has a 10 second delay to give you time to throw it. I'm not even sure if it's still made. Many years ago I bought a couple of Strange Ordinance M-72's that look the same as the one pictured here only it did not have a delay. To check it out before considering putting it out on the field I taped it to a small tree, ran about twenty feet of fishing line out and yanked away.

It made big bang. But I couldn't find the paint. What's a grenade for if it doesn't spray your opponent with paint? On closer inspection I found what looked like little green snot balls (sorry) clinging to anything it found within it's 20 foot blast range. Not very big balls but they were green and sticky and... well, they looked like snot balls.

My apologies to Strange Ordinance if they have since improved the M-72. I'm not even sure they are still around. I haven't purchased one again since the test. (Picture stolen from VintageRex.com)

I think they need to invent a 155mm towed artillery piece for scenario paintball....give it about a 12 mile range and toss in a little willie pete for fun. :)

Well they have everything else for scenario ball now! M16 - check! grenades - Check! Tank - Check!

Needs more artillery and hellicopter gunships!

They seem a bit of a safety issue. Throwing a weighted object that is pressurized is asking for abuse.

I know, I'm no fun!

That's one of the reasons I never bought or used another one.
