well, if you want a small reaction, try packing different types of powder into a ball, if they’re to loose, try mixeing a small amount of a sticky paste or liquid to hold it a little

exploding smoke bombs, huh?

either bombs or smoke bombs.
the blast of an explosion would do no good to the development of smoke unless you wanted a particle/dust-bomb. in this case i recommend (no offense, but not to you as you show you have no experience in explosives) a very small nitro-glycerin or AP charge wrapped into a bag of flour… but i wouldn’t do this myself for i still need my hands. 😉

but you got me on an idea: impact triggered smoke bombs.
i was thinking of a regular smoke-charge ignited by a chlorine-glycol mix…

ah, and a last thing: please stop that UpPeR/lOwEr-case typing…

Roland, go to the HELP section and navigate around and find the section of Ikon Tags, that should help change colors

i dont know about an explosive smoke bomb but to make a good smoke bomb all you gotta do is wrap a ping pong ball in aluminium foil and twist the foil to make a sort of handle then you light the ball (not the handle)and once its alite youll know it it makes alot of smoke

I lit a 3 liter soda bottle filled with sugar nitrate smoke compound once. That would cater to your volume needs quite nicely. It’s not quite as portable as what you were after, but it works…

As far as impact ignition goes, I would forget it. I don’t know about you, but I certainly wouldn’t want to carry around an incendiary device doped with a homemade impact sensitive material. The last thing you need is for the thing to light off in your pocket, at which point you can kiss various important organs goodbye.

For my portable smokebombs, I take the simple route: Embed a book of matches in the somkebomb before it cools and hardens (I refer, of course, to melted sugar nitrate smokebombs). Affix a striker from a matchbook across the heads of the matches, make a little loop out of tape, and you have an instant smoke grenade. Just pull the stiker and get rid of it. It sounds mediocre, but it works – I’ve probably made a few hundred of these things over the years and I’ve never had a misfire that couldn’t be attributed to extreme conditions (landing one in the water, &c).
