    Fireworks...

    School me. I'm gonna go ham this year. Rez is on the way to our place. I want some giant "holyyyyyy shitttt", and "ooohs" and some "aahhhs" and maybe a "damnnn" or two.

    Mortars of course. Rockets?

    What the hell is the secret code? Is there a number or some way to ID the legit stuff from the 'mehs'? I want everyone in the county to get a freedom boner from the show.

    The HOA I work in usually puts on a decent 4th of July show. The county denied their permit this year due to the beer virus (no large gatherings), so no local fireworks for me. I am on eleven acres of dry grass, we don’t do fireworks here

    If you are near a Indian reservation you can get stuff that will take a finger or two off

        Just stack mortars with multiple tubes. Poppin’ off 12-15 at once brings the wowzers!

        Just don’t go four deep per tube, shit can get a little wonky at times after three...

          Go to your locally owned fireworks seller and ask the people working there. That’s what I do. My local place tests all the new stuff they get every year.
          You can also go to the website of the brands they carry and see videos of all of the fireworks.

            Stacking mortars in the tube is fun until the tube falls over.

              I hope not! Lots of dry weed around my old "Broke Butt Mountain". Lots of Fireworks vendors in town;, but that shit doesn't float in my neighborhood.

                  Yep. I was distracted when this happened once and I had a bald spot on my head for a few months because of it.

                    Used to have to go to Ohio for real fireworks. Now they are rushing the build of a new store right down the road from here. I gonna have some fun this year.

                      phantom has videos of everything they sell on the website so you can judge for yourself.

                        Mortars are nice but kind of a PITA to deal with. 500 gram repeaters are great for the lazy man. Some areas might allow repeaters larger than 500 gram. So-called "finale racks" are also good; basically a bunch of mortars wired together. Light once, step back.

                          Knowing your location may help. I head up to PA and go to Keystone. They have videos playing of basically everything they sell so you can preview them right before tossing them in your cart.

                            Put the last morter in upside down, but dont tell anyone.

                            The real key is to be able to keep it going. Light one, run then do over isnt that interesting. Either get enough tubes/launch points to keep it going, rig up remote ignitors, etc. Thanks to the vapers you can get nichrome wire anywhere and cheap and random RF remotes on amazon/fleabay

                              Big mortar sets are all the rage. They go the highest, can be big booms, and variety. You need to mix them in with big cakes. Stay away from rockets, fountains, & anything that has wings and is supposed to take off like a chopper. Walk in and tell the guy you have X dollars and only want big booms, mixed with high shows, and big/loud/colorful cakes.

                              Before the drinking and during sunlight take the mortar tubes and screw them into a board. You will melt a few tubes so screw at least 4 tubes down. This is for safety, ease of use, and a better faster show. I use 3/4" plywood like a 2' by 3' sheet.

                              I will line the show up... medium cakes, to bigger cakes, then mix 2-3 mortars then a cake, before its dark. Then you can just relax, light and watch.

                              If you spend more than $2500 you will get tired of lighting them and people will get tired of watching them.
