Don't you hate it when something you were very familiar with thirty years ago comes up in conversation, and your brain just has a complete stall?
Yes sir, happened to me this weekend.
The smoke bombs consist of 45% potassium nitrate, 45% sulfer and 8% carbon, the rest inert binders.
The smoke produced by the gopher bomb has a evil reaction with the moisure in the lungs of the intended targets, and I used to know what it was.
I used to also know the name of the main gas given off by burning these things, plus the reaction when mixed with water.
Any help to jog the ol' memory will be much appreciated.
