How MegaBOOM STS Works

WarningAudio output may exceed 150 decibels. Wear hearing and eye protection during pressurization and shooting. Stay 15 feet. clear of target when shooting.


Mega Boom Targets - STS model

Set up a series of booming targets

For even more shooting fun, buy several MegaBOOM STS units and create a shooting range without having to "reload"!

MegaBOOM STS uses empty 1- or 2-liter recyclable soft drink or water bottles

The Ballistic Saftey Bag is included to cover the bottle during pressurization

Built-in target stand

The "BOOM" is caused by a supersonic rip in the plastic bottle. MegaBOOM STS is a pressurizing device that allows you to pump air (you supply the air source – bicycle floor pump, compressor or dive tank) into ordinary, everyday, plastic soft drink or water bottles. The pressure inside the plastic bottle, when released by the impact of a projectile (arrow, bolt, bullet or pellet), causes the bottle to rip at a supersonic speed, resulting in a small sonic boom (up to 150 decibels) that can be heard up to three-quarters of a mile.

Designed to use 1- or 2-liter bottles. MegaBOOM STS is designed specifically to use common 1 or 2 Liter recyclable soda pop or water bottles. Just raid your recycling to get more targets. You can also buy a separate adapter that allows you to use 500 mL water bottles (adapter sold separately).

Add a cloud to the loud. Add a small amount of cornstarch or flour to the bottle for added visual effect. MegaBOOM STS can be easily cleaned. Dishwasher safe.

How MegaBOOM Universal works

WarningAudio output may exceed 150 decibels. Wear hearing & eye protection during pressurization and shooting. Stay 15 ft. clear of target when shooting.


Mega Boom Targets - Universal model

Premium pressure gauge identifies pressure

Air intake valve

Small-bottle adapter/safety plate rotates under pressure plate and above bottle collar when small-necked (500 mL) bottles are used

Pressure-release valve prevents pressure from getting too high

Bottle fits onto tapered plug/nozzle

Pressure plate locks bottle down onto manifold/base

  1. Place empty plastic bottle (500 mL to 2 liters) onto MegaBOOM tapered nozzle.
  2. Attach a bike pump or other air source (not included) to the valve on MegaBOOM and use it to fill the plastic bottle with air up to 100 psi.
  3. Shoot the pressurized bottle with a pellet, arrow, bolt or bullet, and it will make a loud boom (up to 150 decibels) that can be heard up to three quarters of a mile away.

With pressure plate in place over the bottle collar, create an air-tight seal by securing with finger-tightened nuts.

When standard bottles are used, the small-bottle adapter/safety plate should be rotated under the bottle mouth and onto the rubber plug.
