    Some time ago I acquired some .223 tracer rounds. One night way out in Nevada we had ourselves a little home fireworks......

    You guys suck...fireworks are illegal in iowa...well all the good ones anyway...


    of course we still have Snakes and Sparklers...

    A couple years back some buddys of mine went out of state blew about 200 a peice(4 of em) and made like Smokey and the Bandit back home. Another car that left the fireworks store got pulled over right before them I guess.

    That was the best summer we ever had.

    I think last year was one of the first years in a while that I got to blow up fireworks. I think Jagged only spent $50 on them and we had a blast. My little brother enjoyed helping him blow them up.

    Got an Indian reservation 20 miles away they sell all the illegal stuff. you just have to make sure a cop is not around or near when you are lighting them off cause its a hefty fine

    I gotta turn in my mancard on this one.... :o :crazy: :haha:

    Just doesn't thrill me anymore I guess.... :crazy:

    I mean, I blew up tons of stuff as a kid/teen, my fave being the multi-staged model destructions, from smoke to fire to kablam! And if someones got em, cool. :waytogo: I just don't go outta my way whatsoever to get em... Not to mention the illegal part..

    Yet if your pool is empty, I'll be the first diving in the deepend riding a hunk of wood, go figure.... :doah: :haha:

    I don't do so well around fireworks anymore. Too much stuff going off around me in the past couple of years slinging jagged shards of metal into the air makes me a little nervous around all pyrotechnics. I still can't figure out why every time we come home form a deployment they insist on having fireworks displays at the welcome home ceremonies.......

    i drive to florida a few times a year, and stop in at south of the border in south carolina, and spend over a grand between the 3 or 4 of us that usually go. and end up lighting them all off before july 4th:doah: . but they are cracking down now around the bridges to get onto long island. you get arrested, and they impound your vehicle. they used to just confiscate them, and i guess the cops just bring em home for there kids...:rolleyes: . seems liek anyhtign fun is slowly getting banned. the police used to just give a 25$ tresspassing ticket and tell you to go home when you would be riding a quad or dirtbike int he woods, now they impound it. they used to just show up to the street races to break them up, maybe give a few tickets. now they roll up with 30 flatbeds, and take all the cars, and you cant get them back, they sell them at auction. not to mention tickets and jail time. im getting so frustrated living here. this whole island is like a retirement comunity. the closest race track is in new jersey. the only one on long island is open one night a week in the summer, and i dont think joe public is allowed to just go and run there car.:mad: sorry, i got a little off topic.
