I did lookinto these "thumpers" quite a few homeland security training centeres use these. I did like other than the fact that they did'nt have the "flash" aspect, but I guess you can't have everything...or can you?
I also was under the impression that they were only availabl;e to LE agencies and Military. If anyone knows where they can be purcahes by civi'es please post. Thanks, hopefully it's local site.

These are the typical LE solution.
MIL solutions.. are in many cases just a inert object chucked in to the room prior to entry.
Coming soon is an effective "airsoft" grenade that generates an nice report .. and sprays 300 bbs in 360 degrees with good force. Reliable timer, relativly easy reload ( yes 100% reusable ) with no parts to be lost ( except the pin, which does separate from the body.
These are very effective simulators.. I have be involved in the prototype testing.. these things are the answer to the grenade question.
Airsoft Innovations is the designer.. time line to production.. early 2008
