I meant Independence, just a typo.Maybe what was meant was "in depends." :uhoh:
Pffft. Fireworks are sooo much fun! One year I was at my cousin's ranch have a bonfire and shooting fireworks. He had bought some of those ridiculously expensive mortar rounds and someone said hold my beer... :uhoh:Were we out in the country, I wouldn't mind so much, but shooting into the air in a crowded urban area? Dangerous, dangerous, dangerous! I've got a .38 caliber hole in my car port roof from some idiot celebrating one of the major holidays.
The firecrackers I don't mind. Just don't ask me to handle them. I learned too much about explosives from the EOD guys at Redstone Arsenal years ago to ever fool around with fireworks. 1. You have no idea what has been put into the majority of them. 2. You have no idea of the manufacturer's quality control standards, especially as concerns fuses. 3. The government has supposedly set standards for fireworks imported into this country. Who is inspecting those fireworks? You really trust the government?
