We are doing some ERT recert this week.
I spent about 20 minutes inside our "smoke house" (which is a small building with 2 6 x 10 mock cells in it) playing in gas.
We went in with our masks on and popped a triple chamber cs grenade to check for leaks in our masks.
I went in one of the cells with a vid camera to video how much smoke it produces...I couldn't see the camera until I held it right up against my mask.
I then went right back in with a video camera and tossed a Def-Tec "triple nickel" cs grenade in a corner and video taped how much smoke it produced.
I'm happy to report..I couldn't see shyte!
Damn those grenades put out a lot of cs smoke. I didn't bother figuring out the LCT factor cause we were waaaaaaaaaaaaay over that!
I stopped into the local dry cleaners to pick up my uniform parka on the way home..the 3 people in there got this wierd look on their faces and one of the women started sneezing.
