I would love to help cause I cant seam to find any he grenades.
we should get together, i would love too see your ideas. as you san see the method of pierceing is rather rough an uncontrolled. this is an area which i do not have alot of experience in. perhaps you couls show/suggest some proper parts that are cheap and easily available.

p.s. i find corn starch works best because you can get it wet and it comes off no prob, it would be hilarious to see someone who got hit with one on a rainy day looking like an uncooked loaf of bread from all that flower.

my pin and catch system (roughly tested) is not much different from yours. in fact i can teach you how to make the pin part easy.

step one shave down top of nail.
step two find a tip caped tube that nail fits in and spring(when pin is pulled spring fires nail into co2 cartridge)
step 3 drill holes in both parts so that another nail can slide in(make sure its big enough nail you can put a hole in it and hang in on a key chain) this nail you have just found will become your pin pop a hole on it put it on a key ring and blunt the tip flat

for the catch you will need a bigger Base nail you grind a ring in nail about 5 mm enough for something to lock inside this ring you just cut

Code:
hole here

should look something like that note the grove doesn't need to be that big just big enough you could place a peace of sheet metal in and it will stop the nail from firing like the pin dose

if you can make your nail on a lathe then make it more like this it makes for a smother release

Code:
hole

for the most part when pin is pulled the nail tries to force past the metal tab on the catch

once you have the nail ready make a half way threw on the housing cover on the top of the housing cover make it so that there's something to catch on and hold an Axel that unless held in place would fly off


now find another spring(its used to drive the catch off)

once you got that spring out of sheet metal make a rib bone design that has an Axel bar on the top of it and a tab that will lock in the grove

solder on the spring heavy on the solder and there you have it an optional catch unit dont wanna use the catch just dont put it on

also you will need to devise a way to make it so the pin will lock the catch as well

that's the part i didn't get to was field usable locks for catch

o ya for 360 dust cloud fill a plastic zip lock with powder
then blow it up close it and pop it
after you have done that figure out how to do that with a co2 cartridge and it will create a dust cloud
