That would be called a Cat-A-What?

I keep thinking empty rimfire shells. Will it go off if the rim is simply deformed, or does it have to be with a wallopp? I'm trying to keep the spring, sear and hammer out of the design. In other words, can a .22 primer be set off by just squeezing it with a pair of pliers? If so, then the necessary fabrication can be minimal.
PS: For heavens sake, don't any of you try this with a live shell!
More thinking... Might be safer to start with spent center fire casings, and just have a reloader put new primers in them. A .38 primer shoots about a two inch flame for a tiny fraction of a second.
Or is it possible to buy new empty rimfire casings -- that is, with primer only?
Time for some shuteye. More fun brainstorms tomorrow. But I want drawings!
Yesterday, I asked my brother, a long time target shooter, about igniting a fuse with a gun primer, and he said "just look at some anarchist web sites and you'll find all you need."!
Silly me, we could just ask Ted The Unabomber!
But my brother felt that the center punch on a .38 primer would get the job done, and I feel I can fit those parts into a seat post.
This bike is now scheduled for a test ride on New Years Eve.
Firecrackers -- New Years Eve.... Nobody will even notice!
