I found a magizine that sells military style smoke grenades, 100% legal to own as a private citizen, they look just like the ones I used in the military, they cost about 40 dollars each and come in colors white and red. I was wondering if anybody could shed some light on proper storage for them inside a house. Im afraid of them going off by themselves and burning my house down, I was thinking about maybe puting them inside a pelican case, but that would be air tight, Is that safe? or just siting inside my safe, anybody know the proper way to store them?

Just a silly question. What will you be doing with the smoke grenades? I can see how they can be fun on the 4th of July, and maybe useful to get a raccoon out of a chimney. But other than that I am drawing a blank on why someone would want them.

I'm not sure what use they'd be other than holiday merriment. If you still feel compelled to get some, I'd avoid keeping them inside the house. Perhaps in a metal cabinet in the garage, away from other flammables.

They (at least all the models i've come across) have a separate "detonator" and the body, just store the "detonators" in a separate metallic container and the bodies away from any sources of ignition. Generally smoke 'nades are very safe to use, storage and handle. Best way to make sure is to check from US Manual that handels the explosive equipment. (provided that those are US model smokes dispensers)

For one thing their great for paintball wars, even better for tactical training ie house clearing and cornering, but I think it would be cool just to have a couple on hand, so I dont have to wait 3 weeks when I order them.

I have used them in airsoft wars before and it is a blast. We never really had them long enough to worry about though. Just follow Northwolf's advice and you should be good.

wouldnt worry. they are very stable and generally dont go off unless you want them to. Just treat them like fire works and keep them in an old metal ammo box in the garage or the shed. Mind you its no fun to breathe that stuff in and it does stain whatever it touches if you are wondering a use for them.
