12 Gauge Booby Trap Trip Wire Alarm Review




What do you think about this video?

Super Daddy: mount it side ways add a small pulley to the mounting plate the pin will pull out still and blow somebody in half

kitkatlex72: my dad had a few off them got them from cheaper then dirt , he works in Alaska used them at night when moose or bears would sneak up on them at night

cysticPro: That blonde kid looks exactly like me no joke :)

Corvette Coupe: I considered making a multiple pipe nipple configuration version as a claymore type alarm, but couldn't the ATF maybe consider this a firearm and bust the living crap out of you if they even thought you could fire projectiles out of it should it be shrouded in metal...

Biff Sarin: As you may have noticed in the Vid, when the shell goes off, the hull bulges and blows out. This significantly diminishes the power of the round as the majority of the energy from expanding gases immediately escapes to the sides of the projectile. If firing a flare, or tear gas cartridge, you can significantly increase the containment and therefore the report (the 'Bang') and throw of the cartridge by simply sliding a standard 3" piece of standard 3/4" ID iron pipe (galvanized would be better for resistance to the elements but not necessary) over the shell, Pre-cut 3" or 4" threaded nipples work fine. You can paint the pipe if you like to hide it better. The pipe fits like a glove over the 12 Ga shell. That's not a coincidence, the outside diameter of a standard 12 Ga shell is .80 inches BUT the typical inside diameter of a 3/4" ID pipe is not actually .75, it's more like .82". The only initial issue which you might encounter is that many iron pipes have a small seam ridge on one side of the interior. This may cause the shell lodge in place particularly after it has been fired. It is a simple matter to grind this seam off for a short distance into the pipe with a Dremel or round hand file. You only need to remove it far enough for the brass base to insert fully, so a little more than a half inch. There is no need to secure the pipe in place, gravity will do your work for you as long as the shell tilts upwards even slightly. Not securing the pipe also makes replacing the cartridge a breeze. When the shell goes off, there is no forward energy transferred to the pipe so it won't budge. It is however, IMPERATIVE that you use High Brass (at least 1/2" brass base) shells with this 'alarm' mechanism whether or not you utilize the pipe. The muzzle velocity of a 5.56 round is significantly higher when fired out of a 16" barrel than when fired out of a 7.5" barrel. In much the same way, the muzzle velocity and range of the 12 Ga. shell will be significantly improved out of the 3" pipe than the 1/2" inch brass base. If you paint the pipe, perhaps with flat black 'High Heat' spray paint, it has the added advantage of hiding the majority of the shell as well. In this video example, you would not have seen the bright orange hull and brass base of the shell. And lastly, the pipe will serve to move the expanding gases of the shell's detonation father from the firing mechanism thereby possibly extending the longevity of the device. 

Meester Anderson: I thought of a much simpler and probably louder one that actually works very well. Put about 150mls of hydrochloric acid or the works in a 20oz plastic bottle then take a small nail and slide an iron washer up to the head of the nail (the washer must be small enough to drop into the bottle) coil some aluminum foil around the nail then place a magnet on the outside of the lid with a tripwire attached to it to hold the washer up, when someone trips the wire the magnet falls off and the aluminum falls into the acid and in less than 30 seconds BOOM. The only draw backs are that it doesn't go off instantly and the HCL vapors react with the aluminum foil so it would explode by itself after a week or so in warm climates but this would take much longer with weaker than 20% HCL.

Michael Lawson: Looks dangerous. That shotshell burst at the seams.

kahmoi crawford: may i ask what camera your using? very awsome footage.

terminal99: I think that without a barrel to channel the shot in one direction, it would not work well. I don't think the device could take the force of a buckshot shell anyway. That not to say you couldn't rig something up, but I would say just keep it as an alert device.

SirLobsterman: sorry, I meant rat trap and you bend the kill bar where it would strike the primer so it makes a pointy spot, enough to detonate the primer. also, you should use a 13/16" hole saw rather then a 3/4", since the shell's maximum diameter is .8" rather then .72.

terminal99: @chickenbutt123ish Check out Gunbroker.

William Thomas: Are those Vietnam era?

kamphwagon1: Cont. If the trigger /firing pin blocker would work in the device sideways you could offset one side with a spring strong enough to pull the trigger out from the other direction ,that's the way military trip wires work and prevent a intruder from just cutting the wire.. It's kind of a balance between wire tension and spring ..The military trip flares had a safety pin when stringing wire and tensioning the wire and you check the balance between spring and wire ...

marco19911991: wouldnt even just adding a "barrel" an inch long be enough to direct the force? would definitely not have the power of a shotgun but enough to make someone think twice about pushing on

geweher1: i think a 3 1/2 turkey load would be better hahaha just cuz that bit of shot might slowem down

arkons1961: I still can't find where to buy them! Help!

yin taichi: TAKE ALL THE SHOT AND MOST PROPELLANT FROM A 12 ga. SHELL, YOU CAN MAKE A DANDY CAP PISTOL. i GET GOOD RESULTS WITH A ONE-QUARTER AMOUNT OF PROPELLANT...CUT THE CASING RIGHT DOWN TO THE INTERIOR CONICAL SECTION...THEN USE SEVERAL SQUARES OF MASKING TAPE TO SEAL OFF THE OPEN END. THE "SHELL" WILL THEN FIT SNUGLY INTO A 3/4" PVC PIPE JOIN. MY LATEST IS AN IN-LINE THUMB-PULL MODEL WITH A METAL HAMMER AND POINTED SCREW 'PIN'.WAD UP CAYENNE IN TISSUE AND LOAD IN FRONT OF JOIN, FOR FUN. KA-BLAM!

Patriot News Network: One question : If the russians ever invade, could this be used as a small claymore mine?

Hag Sheffed: I didn't realize such a device was legal, even for less than lethal loads.

conceptforge: Don't let my wife see this she'll put it on the refrigerator at night.

TheWeaponsBin: They are sold on Gunbroker. Thanks!

terminal99: It's a Panasonic HDC-SD90.

zenosxr: Been a while since I've watched this. Just seemed so from the video but it does seem well made, why I said to clarify if ii was off I suppose. An awesome device either way. Unfortunately as bad as our legal system is, If you install this in your house and actually injured or killed someone from them tripping it you would probably face legal repercussions

TheWeaponsBin: @zenosxr It is reusable. You just need to keep replacing the blank noise maker. A little paint came off of the one in the video. I think that is what you saw.

Gabe Anguiano: Even if it was a blank - I was cringing while watching you manipulate the shell into the trap with your finger over the top...

dentonbloodworth123: I got alot of them works good

victoryorvalhalla09: Gunbroker--"no international shipments" not even to your friendly neighbours to the north?

m v: if you put live ammo like buck shot or whatever will it fire?

LLuE88: looked at gunbroker they have no such gizmo at this time, haven't found anywhere else either?,

flap: "...he/she will be liable for any injury or death even to an unwanted intruder such as a burglar. It is illegal to set a booby trap on one's own property to prevent intruders." Google "law against booby traps in homes" and click the first link.

0darklament0: its quite easy to see that u can mount the shotgun shell facing the trail and put in a real shotgun shell....... but that would be illegal of course..........

terminal99: @brendoncostello Gunbroker has many types for sale.

TheWeaponsBin: check gunbroker for "trip wire alarm"

TheWeaponsBin: thanks! check gunbroker for "trip wire alarm"

Charles David: How would you keep the deer or other wild life or domestic animals from tripping it?

jalberti3637: I tried out the mouse trap idea and didn't like it. It was to touchy and likely to have fails alarms. Push you have to rig up a fire pin up to the wire on the trap or the primer....

terminal99: Search for the words "trip wire"

kenhog75: great great great very cool where did you say i can get one? also if you get a chance check out some of my videos feedback welcome if im worthy enough subscribe if not cool also.im gonna go check out some more of your videos thxs happy preppin.

brendoncostello: @terminal99 Thanks. I couldn't find it until I searched for "trip wire alarm."

Miles Hokum: I prefer the American .22 cal Alarm Mines. They're loud and you can get a 100 pack of the Ramset blanks at any hardware store. The 12 Gauge blanks are, without question, specialty items.

marco19911991: sort of happy about that actually... otherwise people would be putting these sweet sweet babies everywhere :P

greatwf: ¡great!

G36Jeff: U can find them at gun shows for like 5 bux. And American specialty ammo.com sells them I'm pretty sure.

Edwards SistersHands: Uhh.

wrght9185: Ha ha! The insurgent was pretty excited.

m v: "extremely illegal to make lethal booby traps" -- can you give me some reference to that? What if they were used as deterrents in ranches or large properties I'd see no harm in that especially if there were warning signs.

daretohaveorangehair: sweet!

TheWeaponsBin: Thanks!

greenthumbbandit: ear pro for the kid atleast?
