Any uses for smoke grenades?

signaling, providing concealment. Providing security*

ex: Pop the smoke grenade on the LZ and ask the pilot the color.

ETA, some idiot in my outfit once used a couple to get even with a bartender that 86'd him the night before.

Are you asking what to do with them in a creative manner, or looking to rid yourself of some and are looking for interested parties?

I would think one would be handy in the same bag as a signal mirror, flare gun, etc.

My friend uses them as signaling devices on his boat.

Why am I having sudden thoughts of a somke greneade, my ex-wife, and wetting the sidewalk from the front door and letting it ice over?

Heh, heh, and they say there is no justice in this world.

I use them for...


Paintball (cover and concealment when we play at night).

Hurricanes (a smoker will clear out the mosquitos really well)

SHTF (if anyone raids my house I will pop a dozen smokes and I will escape with my dogs)

Cover and concealment is a category. Smoke of course only provides one of them.

Depends which color you use...
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 8:44:24 AM EDT


For concealment, the red ones work best!

they would be useful for rescue if you were ever stranded and you needed to make a distress signal for aircraft that may be searching for you in the mountains or out on the ocean

Bad guys chasing you...pop a smoke. Keep running. 100 yards later, pop another smoke. Keep running. Tell A-1 Skyraider or A-37 Dragonfly to fire up anybody between the smoke.

Oh, and smoke and CS is ineffective against zombies (or so I'm told...).

I wish I had the money right now to get one.

Maybe later. At least I know what to get.

Thanks
