The guy was me and in the first clip most of my right arm and leg had spray on it. In the second clip it hit me mostly in the back of the right side. A lot of paint on me both times.

I can't really say at this point in time. My friend may have lined up someone to manufacture them so that they could be sold commercially. The point is to make a mine that can be taken to commercial painball field and be used. The design is based on it being easy to use over and over again.

if youthink you have some new idea, check out google. RAP4 has an assortment of pressure activated ones, and 1 or 2 wire ones i believe. its cool cause you made it though. you can also find more wire ones on google too.

I have spent alot of time on my computer researching, and while yes there are other mines out there, I haven't seen one quite like this. The closest I've seen is the master mine. Someone out there could very well have already built ones just like these ones but I can't find them anywhere.

hi guys just wondering does anyone have plans or detailed instruction on how to build a paintball tripwire land mine or a step on mine
That's a bit of a rough one. The sport in general has kind of moved on from them for a number of reasons

1) mines were popular in the 90s, back then a typical game lasted an hour pretty easily. Today a 20 minute game is considered long. So to find and get to a good spot, did a hole, plant and camouflage your mine then have the other team come through and trip it is a lot in 20min

2) field has to allow mines, especially if it's home made they may not, they do have insurance policies to abide by

3) the player(s) hit by the mine have to take themselves out. It's the same problem with grenades, players are used to thinking if paint splatter as just that, splatter. Without the impact of a paintball players are less likely to call themselves out

I'll poke around a bit, I know a few resources that may have something.

Nobody makes them any more. Probably your best option to purchase is to make a post over on mcarterbrown.com in the want to buy section. If anyone has one still I would suspect it's those guys

But what's your goal with this anyway? Wanting to use it at local field or what?
