Dirt Cheap easy to make land mines

ok by a box of 12 gauge shot gun shells preferably bird shot or buck shot then put a pin in a small hole in the ground and carefully place the shell a centimeter from the tip so the tip of the pin is lined up with the center of the shell then make it so the shell is barely visible but it far enough out of the ground for some one to step on it and press it onto the pin which will fire the shell and blow off their leg and the ballz and whatever it goes through 🙂

Sounds a bit timid
shouldnt there be something substantial to hold the pin couse i dont really think dirts gonna keep it in place also they need too be hit faily to go off so maybe if …..
you had a piece of capped peice of pipe sized enough to fit a shell in then get a bolt and stick it through a hole and bolt it on then sharpen too a point so is like a pin then put a couple of theese on a board then bury …. could be nasty though …….

Pressure / Forceing Bolt into cap(C)

good idea i tested that method with a rock and it worked real good.  I’m trying to find some pipe that will hold a 10 gauge shell 😉

*pfft* Whats the point in a landmine? You will end up killing someone, or yourself?

Land mines are designed to restrict access by having an enemy discover the hard way that the path they have chosen is a deadly one.  On a battlefield, it is imparative to small unit strategy, but in your backyard, it could be more a nuisance than a practical way of having something blown up.

However, I do think that if you are trying to keep your neighbor or some animal out of your backyard, covered pits may be more practical.
