    I came across this today:


    And it mentions a smoke "flare" has anyone seen how these work?

    Also other then the home-made smokers for airsoft and paint ball can you purchase smoke canisters commercially? Or are they LE only?

    Does anyone know the legality of the home made smokers? Seems to me since it's not a bomb the only issue would be how one use it, public nucience laws etc.

    It all depends on YOUR city, county and state laws concerning "fireworks".
    It is NOT illegal to purchase chemicals nor to make your own fireworks as far as Federal laws, BUT it can be illegal depending on where you live. Here's some great stuff you can look into:

    You can purchase smoke flares legally at any boating store or marina. These are USCG certified and absolutely legal. If you have them in your car, then you're taking them to your boat, or they are a gift to a boating buddy...
