  • Sparkling fountains - Garbage.
  • Mortar Shells - Garbage.
  • Sparklers - Garbage.
  • Missile Batteries - Scary and unpredictable garbage.

Between all of us, my family spent more money than I would like to admit to on this trash and they were WEAK. I don't think I will ever spend another dime on that trash. I would rather pay to go see it done like a pro.

At lease you can shoot off mortars. In my state ours cant go higher than a foot off the ground and cant shoot outwards more than six feet.

Fireworks are heavily restricted here, i dont spend money on them due to the expense and duration not being worth it
I just go to the big displays

IDK what mortars you were using... but ours were the same as they've been the last 10 years I've seen them. However there has been a dramatic decrease in satisfaction of bottle rockets. -__-

Then you're getting them from the wrong place. Spent a few hundred dollars in FWs and had an amazing display. Well worth it I'd say.

I used to go out with a girl who worked in a fireworks factory. Got lots of freebies, more than you could use. Used to have a fireworks party every time we came home drunk from the pub. Police were called once because rockets were being launched out of the window at cars in the street.

Her job was not really what she expected, though. It mostly consisted of covering up "Made in China" with stickers that said they were made in the UK and conformed to British Safety Standards.

So go out with a girl who works in a fireworks factory is my advice.
