    What’s the best smoke grenade, and where can I buy them (I’m in the USA)?

    dbcpyrotechnics.com

    thanks.



    I just did some more research and found out that the ones I found are made by ALS

    I don't believe you can buy military grade smokers outside of bases. Of course I could be wrong, but there are certain restrictions (gov't of course) that prohibit such devices being sold to the common man. I can get British and German made ones, but they are highly costly.

    could you tell me what the names of the British and German ones are?

    I think since it doesn’t actually explode they’re classified as a flare or signaling device.

    I saw a video for the pocket smoke grenade by ALS, and it was about half as much smoke as I would want, so I guess the next size up would be what I want.

    I could give you the names, but I wont. Only because they are government issue and none are available in the U.S. With that being said, it is not advisable for anyone who is novice to use smoke grenades built to military spec. This would violate a number of ordnances that would hold me accountable by international law. In most cases you will need military clearance for sure purchases.

    If I can’t get them, I don’t see what the harm would be in me knowing what they’re called, it’s like I know what an RPG-7 is and I still can’t buy one. lol

    I’ve done my research and it’s looks like $40 each ($39.99) + shipping and hazmat is the price for an ALS smoke grenade.
    At that price I think I’ll just buy some marine smoke flares there are some bigger ones and they even have a pull-tab, they’re more cumbersome and not as robust, but they do the same thing, and only cost $15.
    And I think the chances of me being pinned down and needing a smoke screen are pretty slim anyway.

    RevBushmaster When in doubt use more C4

    There are many recepies on line for smoke. If you have a general knowledge in chemistry you should be able to delineate the difference between something dangerous and a dud etc. Each state is different but here in Tennessee I am allowed to make a certain amount of rocket fuel that has propelled my modes to more than 10,000 ft. I am interested in model rocketry so I have made some smoke grenades trying to make hybrid rocket fuel, as well as some unintentional explosives. Check your local state and federal laws, but there are ways to obtain smoke.

    I like you dont see much use for smoke in a squad or smaller application tho. : }>

    It's been about 12 years since I served with the British Military. If I remember correctly, the smoker was N-110. As to Germany was the DM-24, though I rarely ever handled this particular one.
