If yes where did you go to get your fireworks?

I'm not personally, but our "street party" will be. Being in SoCal, I assume they get 'em from Mexico.

Some friends of mine go to Missouri and spend about $1500 on fireworks and bring them back to WI. We shot them off Sat. night and had a blast.

Hopefully my neighbors are cured of this after having to pay for a new garage door for my other neighbors due to an errant rocket.

Ah, good ol' Pennsylvania, where they'll sell you explosives less than a mile into the border, but try, just try, to buy beer.

Well, I guess it's probably a good idea to make it hard to get booze if fireworks are so readily available in your state.

I bought five lines on the Powerball too.

Fast cash and fire, here I come! God bless America!

cheers,

That's not stopping the morans at my apartment complex. Woke up to what sounded like a shootout with the cops, assorted bangs and pops all day, and this evening the big finale during a rainstorm.

Stupid Ohio laws, you can buy fireworks as long as you "agree" to take them out of state, and no one does. Cops won't do a thing either.

All fireworks are illegal in my portion of the city. Not that that stops anyone. However, I did not set any off myself.
