Although I think Fireworks are cool, they are a waste of money. I say it because they are so expensive. How much did you pay for all that???

Personally I would rather much go to the fireworks show at the fairgrounds, it's safer and doesn;t costs as much. Unless of cousre you get them for free.

You guys just live to far from good old Southern Fireworks. Right over the border from Ga. are some of the finest fireworks establishments in the country.

That group of fireworks would have cost well over $1000 dollars in AZ. Fireworks are illegal here. They don't even sell sparklers here. Too much of a fire risk.

But it sure is fun to set 'em off!

Illegal in Iowa, so we would've had to go to the border to buy them. Really expensive there, I would say what you bought would've cost me $750 +.

Yeah, that much goods would cost quite a bit here. Last year I had about 1/3 of that and it cost me $300. This year I'm driving to the Avi Reservation at the Colorado river to get the Works. Should be much cheaper. I hope...

Boone, man you are a man after my own heart. Last year I spent about 300 bucks in June and it was all buy one get one free stuff. So the one thing I hated about the fireworks is I'm so busy setting them up and stuff that I don't get to enjoy them as much as everyone else: Then it came to me build what the pro's use, so i submit for your approval, the "AWING PILOT Detonator deluxe super cheap edition!!!"

I took some extra MDF I had laying around and some spare network parts. I went out and bought a bunch of buttons for 0.10 cents a pop and used some network cable to do the cabling (the tape label tells me which cable number and which color pair is which button). Pretty much I can run one network cable with 4 pairs of wire enough to ignite 4 fireworks. In the model displayed I had enough for 16 ignitions. I connected the alligator clips of the cable to each end of an electric ignition (get them at hobby shops for model rockets) and paper taped them to the fuses. I even bought some extended fuses to light multiple fireworks off of one electric fuse. I then made sure the cables were about 50 - 100 feet long, got a 4X8 sheet of wood laid out the fireworks, rigged it all up and sat back and watched them all go of from the comfort of a chair. This year I am already working on a more advanced one hopefully one I can time to music but I doubt it. Oh and its powered by a single 9 volt battery although a 12 volt would probably ignite the fusees a hair faster. Best $30 and 2 hours of my time i ever spent. And every one can push a button to light them so everyone gets involved. so you get fun, and safety can't beat that !!!!

Before you guys respond yes i know i could buy one but not nearly as many ignitions for WAAAAYYYYY more money. plus theres some self pride in knowing that I built it.

Most of this stuff is illegal here in Colorado, but I can drive up to Wyoming and get Cherry bombs and pop bottle rockets.

Most of this stuff I bought is illegal for consumers here in Kentucky...I drive one hour to Indiana for fireworks....it's worth it. :D

Alot of the good stuff is now illegal in FL, I think b/c of the massive wildfires a few years back and they refuse to let you set any off in the street like you used to be able to do (weren't THOSE the days? lol)...in fact last 4th of July the cops b!tched me out for lighting off some minor lil thing in my driveway...then again, the cops in Indialantic are bored and on a constant power-trip, which is never a good combination lol. There are a few fireworks shops out near the highway, though...so its not like we're starved for em.
