POPPING SMOKE!-(Smoke Signaling Devices)
#1
Anybody have smoke signaling devices in their BoB/GhB? Recommendations on type/brand? Flares are good at night but smoke is better during the day for signaling. What do you use?

I picked an orange one at a gun show a while ago. I don't have it in my bag, bought it more as a novelty item.

Seen a few different types for airsofters but they're expensive. The ones you get at wally world during the fourth of july don't really smoke that much either. How hard is it to find the m18 style smokers?

I really don't know, I saw these at a show and grabbed it with a container of thermite. Never could get the thermite to light though, so I do kind of question the smoke too.

Is making your own smoke for personal use a no-no? Everything I've read says its OK as long as its not meant for sale without the appropriate licenses. It'd be a lot cheaper and easier going that route.

The pull the pin and toss smoke rounds are now illegal. ATF ruled their fuses are explosives. All you can get are flare gun rounds or the ones with the fireworks style string fuse. I've used the big 4th of July type smoke markers. They're not too bad and the blue ones make some serious smoke.

Did you try magnesium ribbon?

Nope, got some handy? Tried a butane torch, I don't think I was getting it hot enough.

A sparkler taped to a length of fuse would probably work.

Everything I've read says the sparklers are the easiest method.
