Plastic Bombs

Hand grenades and antipersonel mines can be easily and cheaply constructed from poly-estercasting resin, auto body putty, ABS and PVC pipe, plexiglass, vacumn formed styrene sheet etc. These plastic devices won't produce shrapnel fragments or concussions equal to the power of conventional bombs, but they do have two unique and noteworthy features; they are both non metallic and x-ray transparent.

The first feature allows these devices to be carried through airports, government buildings and other controled areas where a mag-nometer check might be encountered.
