View Full Version : What Does a Bomb Disposal Unit Sound Like?

I am writing a humorous cozy and in one scene a suspicious package is found on a Navy base. Of course they don’t want to take any chances and end up “rendering safe” an insulated lunch bag containing someone’s Pastrami sandwich.

I have heard of two types of bomb disposal units, one uses high-pressure water and the other uses a shotgun shell. I imagine that the shotgun-shell type sounds like a firecracker going off inside a metal garbage can, but what would the high-pressure water type sound like.

Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff fft. Drip, drip, drip.

Or, if the lunch bag is a bomb:

Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff fft. Blam.
