depends on price. I don't see a need for it, but if they're reasonable, sure I'd take a few to screw around with and have just in case.

$35 is a bit pricey for an expendable.
Maybe $15.

I'd probably pop one off in the middle of a residential street while riding my bike around the neighborhood

Smoke grenades are cool and can be useful in some situations, such as masking movement, etc.

But even then it's not always effective. Ever see The History Channel program about the battle for Hue City in Vietnam? Those Marines were talking about how they had to "adapt" and "improvise". They had been taught to toss smoke grenades before crossing streets. But they were taking heavy, heavy fire as well as casualties by doing so.

So they thought up another solution and they moved in one of those big ass recoiless rifle (4 barrels on a chassis) and when they were prepared to cross, they set that sucker off down the street. Not only did it create a lot of smoke and dust of it's own, it gave the enemy something to think about other than just shooting at the smoke.

But yeah, smokers are cool. The fact I have none would make me interested in a couple. But I'm just not sure their actual value and use would be worth $35 each.

I thought I heard this too. I'd like to have a few though. I don't know why, but I'd like some.

When we where kids, one of my firends dads had a case of them. We stole two (on two different occasions) and my firend tossed it into the back of a passing pick-up truck.

I always thought it would be funny to see the whole event, but we only got to see a few seconds before running like hell and hiding.

But, on to your question, I would buy some at a lower price but not for $35.
