ya... it does kinda suck..
i should have rephrased that.. making any pyrotechnics is illegal... unless you have a licence or a manufaturers licence.. which leads to a hell of a lot more issue...
some of the issues with smoke granades is the oxidizer
cause when melting the *chemicalX* with *chemicalY* it can spontaniously combust...and thats bad...
also if there is too much of the oxidizer it can potentually cause a rapid combustion and just be bad..
the smoke you can get from the marine supply stores is usualy orange (emergency smoke flares) and i believe it is HANDS that makes the smoke granades
about 5 games.. still a little new but i know my pyrotechnics
