I was wondering...is there a cost effective alternitive to M18 smokers?

I would like to have a few, but I'm having a hard time shelling out the cash...

yes, but they cost about $80 apiece ag gun shows, if you can find them and those are usually super old trashy ones. Lightfighter sells new ones, I believe for $50 each, but even he doesn't want to mess with the hazmat shipping costs which are crazy. Another place that sells them, new in the cardboard tube, is a company I believe called Odin Arms out of Presscott AZ. But again, Hazmat shipping.

Edited to add: I think Odin Arms is run by someone here on ARFCOM too. Can't remember who.

Thanks for that link...I do believe that is the ticket....cost efective, has it's own ignition source, looks like good coverage and small...

Thanks again..

Is Odin still around? I looked a while back and didnt find a website for him.

So the white is covered, and you could use these for a different color (orange to be exact.) $40 for 3, but still with shipping. West Marine.com

But I bet there is some sort of boating supply store in just about every major city....

I think this is the site. It's under construction but you could probably e-mail the address given and find out what you need Odin Arms

I don't think you are going to find what you need there.

ETA- I won't say things in public that may or may not be true, but if you want what I have heard about Odin, IM me.

www.strategosstore.com/subcatmfgprod.asp?0=664&1=670&2=-1

Yours truly during the Mall Ninja Contest. Granted it's not a M18 smoke grenade, but, you get the idea.

P.S. If you don't see the picture, hunt101 is down

I was going to order from strategosstore but then they decided that they would require LEO or Mil ID on something that is perfectly legal for civvies to own. Anyone know where I can get some like they sell?

Strange. Strategosintl.com will ship with normal rates of about 9-12 bucks. I talked to another guy who got his in the HAZMAT packaging. He said there was no extra charge on the shipping that they quote when ordering.

They must build the shipping into the cost of the devices. My shipping charge was only 10 or 11 dollars.
