Smoke grenades

Just found that website:

http://www.rocketfireworks.ca/smoke.html

You can get a box of 5 smoke grenades for 21$ or a box of 25 for 90$.

The only downside is that shipping is 40$ for canada, but the warehouse is in Toronto. So people of Toronto could buy some and sell them back with a more convenient shipping price. It can be sent via regular mail cause it's non explosive!! Check out the video!

Check your local bylaws before ordering anything like that.

I've had those before, they are a hot burn so most places probably won't let you use them, not to mention I couldn't get them to stay lit they kept going out. And if they do lite they have to stand straight up. Get the ones with the pull wire on them, they may cost $10-$12 each but work better, and they are cold burn, I've already used 10 last season.

Those things are crap.

The expired boating distress signals work MUCH MUCH better.

+1. I've gone so far as to have ordered (through proper channels) several different types of the smoke pyro we use in the military. The expired marine distress units are still better.

Excuse my ignorance, but do the marine smoke grenades work better when they're expired? Or are they just cheaper that way?

Cheaper and easier to get a hold of for the purpose of "throwing them away" as we do in airsoft.

They're quite expensive, in comparison, when fresh, but when they go some folks sell them cheap (as they need to get rid of the stock).

They work, generally speaking, better than most other smokes out there. At least from the demo's I've seen.

We're all out of the expired marine ordnance (hence the reason for the sales post disappearing) but are working on getting more. We recently got in 2,000 white parachute rocket flares but....well, we need to find launchers for them because they're not quite what we expected. Way cooler though and should be popular with airsofters. I should have more information in the following week or two.

I really hope they are ALOT cheaper expired. :P
Yeah new they're stupid expensive, but they're a required safety device for boating. Expired they still work fine, they burn for about 3 minutes and you can get them for about $8 if you know the right people

any order over $300 has free shipping. And no I don't order $300 worth of smoke, I also order the stuff I need to make grenades from here too.
