    I've seen them dip snuff but never smoke. Has gel taken up vaping?

    I read an explanation of the flash inside the gel but can't recall what it was.

    Impressive video, but I will stick with 9mm because my arthritic hands would cease to function after one shot from a 44 magnum.

    Not only did that gel block smoke, but it stood up on its rear legs, too.
