    Homemade Firecracker... aka Pipe Bomb

    one I found In a Lake, I Tore apart in my sink.

    Don't do as I do though

    in retrospect I Should have Called the police for Brownie Points & a Laugh
    when they Evacuated & Blocked off the whole County over it , done the Tearing apart Under water, Or just Buried it where it would never be Found again.

    But not My Style.


    COOL FIND

    Don't light it unless you can do it from Behind a Wall with a 10' Stick.
    Could have a 1/10 Second Fuse that's still viable.(that would be a Bugger

    The Truth
    It's not a pipe bomb if the main housing is ceramic lol.the caps do not look like they are threaded(into ceramics,I doubt it)Looks like they're epoxied on.if the string is green it's cannon fuse.water proof.

    I found it on my property I do make things but not bombs I make soap dispensers and mosaics Mosley I don't like violence or guns I read about quarter sticks but they're made with cardboard and this is definitely glass or ceramic I put it way out in the woods and I'm not going to mess with it until I figure out what it is

    My older brother had a friend in high school that gave him a homemade firecracker, aka pipe bomb. We lit it on a 2x4 in the back yard, with mom watching, haha. It destroyed the 2x4 and shook windows all over the neighborhood. Some neighbors called the power company thinking a transformer had blown. Looking back, had this happened nowadays, I'm sure we'd be locked up in Guantanamo right now! God bless naive moms!

    kid from my school packed one with black powder and blew off parts of his thumb and fingers. That being said I made stuff like this all the time, just gotta do it safely.

    UXO is not your friend, and even when MDing if you are not a trained tech then you leave it there.

    Last thing you need to worry about for a 200 gram stick is your entire street being cleared; you have already destabilized the suspected UXO and who ever responds and reports back will be asked this, and his or her response will be the caller moved it, appears to have cleaned it and handled it in lord knows how many other ways. Then a tech will be deployed, it will be picked up, they will investigated the area it was recovered in and likely tell you if you find another, then just leave it and call 911.

    Or worse case, something odd goes wrong at your house, could be anything from someone needing medical assistance or police respond to a call either at your place or to a place near you, anything can happen but someone sees this in would is called Line of Sight; well now your screwed. Then when charges are brought against you they will be federal, in this day and age all your social media accounts will be checked, they will even see that you came here posted picks, asked for advice where in turn got solid advice, and suddenly this thread becomes one of your primary witnesses against you. Like others you may attempt to fight it, likely have to sell your house too pay legal fees unless the feds want to freeze the property until it can be cleared and that can take a few years when it is all said and done.

    But seriously, its only 2 years max for that, but you likely have at least one person on your street that is verse in FOIA and wants to know full details. Worse case really that might cost them about 18 bucks to get them details, in which they will post all over the net.

    Could be worse though, in regards to someone else getting their hands on it like a child or simple minded fool that thinks it a fire cracker and they injure them self, others, cause private or public property damage. Man then those charges really add up.

    In regards to what people make this stuff out of; could be made of anything, could have been for a test hit, some crazy wanted to make something to get in a court house. The sky is the limited on improvised explosives; the one that retired me out of the Army was made inside of what appeared to be cement waste.

    ever heard of a Potassium fuse, used in very low tech home made casings and dipped in wax. Totally not stable.

    Best of luck to you, many users here have provided you with some really sound advice, sure hope it does not come back to bite you.
