For finding lost spuds. If you could figure out a way to securely fasten one to a spud and put a long fuse on it, you should have enough time to find it before it stops smoking. Maybe. Just be careful how you design the fuse cause it will damage pvc somewhat.

i was already plannin on doin that, but i'm not gonna be able to get to mine at all. I'm gonna be shooting them into the middle of a lake. I just want the smoke bombs for fun. They should make a great smoke trail.

i'll take electric matches in case the fuse doesn't catch itself, i'll put one in there. I won't need steel wool that time either. (see previous posts about my steel wool ignition)

shooting smokebombs is fun, but if u are makeing the smokebombs from KNO3 (saltpeater) and sugar, when it burns, it will burn anything about 6ft from it. it burns VERY VERY hot. saltpeder is a pure oxadiser(whatever spelling) and will burn VERY VERY hot. Plus, I have heard that a pound mixture of this will make a city block full of thick white smoke. Here is how to learn how to make there smoke bombs.

I've shoved newspaper down my barrel then added the fuel, then lit the smoke bomb and dropped it down the barrel then fired. It made an awsome smoke trail like 200 feet up in the air. I didn't use a spud but it was still cool.

i was gonna lodge the smoke bomb in the potato, use my spud knive (i made yesterday) on it, and figure out how to make the fuse get lit for sure. I's thinking try it bare with an ugly color, then with a dab of lighter fluid on the end, and then just stick an electric match to the fuse, and not put the steel wool in my ignition.
And i'd just stop tryin better ways when it worked.

If anyone has a suggestion for a good way to light it, lemme know please.

How about putting some sandpaper at the tip of the barrel on the inside and tying a match to the fuse? Should work perfectly everytime. Bet it would work even better than a real smoke grenade.

JK of course = )

if i got a real smoke grenade, and i was willing to shoot it into a lake, it would work great, if it fit. If it would fit in a 1.5 barrel, i could put wadding in, or a potato, and pull the pin, shove it down, and fire. It would come out, the handle would pop out, and smoke would pour out in a couple seconds.

That'd be pretty fun to be able to get real smoke grenades.

for a combustion gun, as I recall they weigh in at around 4-6 oz (lot of metal) but yes it would work. some spotters in nam used to put frag grenades into mason jars and drop them on viet cong (from a small plane)
