    Get a sling shot and shoot them into the air. That will make them illegal.
    Just don't start any fires please or you'll be talking to us from the slammer.

    Beat them with a hammer about 1/2 way down. Not too hard. Just enough to pulverise the case and make it soft. They go whisstle.................BOOM!
    Just go buy some FFF Black Powder
    PVC Pipe bombs are a lot of fun..............Arrrrrrr!

    i remember hammering the hell out of them in the middle, that will do it, sometimes we would duct tape em, cant remember why though, maybe it forces the preassure out one end and its lounder???

    we would also modify the spinning flowers, anyone know that one, my memory is shot ;)

    can't rember the spinning flower one.

    I use to get "killer bees" not sure if the still sell those are make them. anyways, you would pull the bees off. Then light them and RUN! those bad boys would go nuts like jump 10' in the air are go off in some weird direction and go boom!

    you can and will be arrested if you tape 7 yellow long burn smoke bombs together and drop them in the middle of traffic...or so i've heard....
    although this was pre 9-11 so you might get fed charges now

    Did Texas ban fireworks, or is that just a Dallas-area thing?

    When I was 12, I spent a summer in San Antonio with a friend who's family moved there the year before. I went to the fireworks stand A LOT; they sold me whatever I had the money to pay for...

    Anyhoo, back on topic - 1/2" PVC pipe about 3 or 4 ft. long, capped at one end, makes a great shoulder-fired bottle rocket launcher. You gotta be quick though...
    Lotsa duct tape around the base and barrel of a Roman candle makes for a great hand-held flare launcher. Somehow, in a summer of night-time Roman candle and bottle rocket fights in heavy clothes (5-on-5 teams), we managed to a: not kill, burn, or maim anyone; b: not burn down the neighborhood; c: not get arrested. How ANY of those didn't happer, I still can't figure out...

    they are illegal here too...

    The only "legal" fireworks here are the ones the officials light off at the 4th of July celebrations...of course,many go to NH and buy them and smuggle them across the state line(for anyone who attempts this--DONT leave the fireworks store with MA plates on your vehicle,and head south towards MA!--you WILL get pulled over as soon as you cross the state line!...smart smugglers go north,and make a U-turn many miles from the fireworks shack--or borrow a friends car with NH licence plates!..not that I've ever done this myself! :whistle: :whistle: ).

    I myself only like the "small" stuff,like cherry bombs and bottle rockets...my friend had several HUGE class C fireworks like the ones used at an official public display!--we lit one off last summer,and the cops were there before the last "boom" went off,and they confiscated the rest--we told them to be careful!--we were lighting them off because they were 4 years old and had been stored in a dry attic!--and they were a bit unstable!--the cops wanted to arrest him for posession of dangerous explosives,and told him he could go to jail for 5-10 years for having them! :yikes: :yikes: --but they said they would give them to the fire dept. to light off at a public display instead,and added-"if we come back here for another fireworks complaint,you WILL be coming with us to the station!" :blush:

    Another loony tune I knew used to love filling 5 gallon pails with 1/2 acetalyne ans 1/2 oxogen from his torch tanks,and lighting them by shooting them with a .22 rifle!...the explosion they make is incredible!--but one time while he was transporting a "filled" pail in the bed of his truck,something set it off(static electricity?) and it caved in the back of the trucks cab and bed and blew out the back window!--and he was deaf for a week!..he also rigged up a hefty trash bag using the same "formula" and blew part of the back porch off an abandoned house with it!..after he saw how powerful it was,he said he was tempted to add some helium so it would float and add a small radio controlled airplane motor on it,so he could "pilot" it to a target and detonate it!...I wonder if he's in jail yet??..Bin Ladin could get some pointers from that guy.. :p:

    All you guys and gals be careful this 4th!...dont want to lose any Ck5'ers!..keep all your fingers,toes,and other vital organs intact!--and dont drink and drive!..5 people died here on memorial day weekend in a 20 mile radius of my town!..have fun,but DONT kill yourselves!.. :crazy:

    wire sparklers. the ones w/ the colored tips. bundle them together(1 box, 2 boxes, 3 boxes, ect. the more the better.) leave one sparkler sticking out for a fuse. electrical tape them in a bundle. tape em up good. then blow some stuff up.

    Every fourth of july and new years they have a burn ban and aerial fireworks ban here in South Texas because its so dry but A)the local fireworks stands still sell them and B) people do it anyway. I was always more of a bonfire pyro, my bi-annual fires at my rural river lot kept getting bigger and bigger until I had the fire department called on me last new years because some people a half mile away thought a house was on fire! I am now cured of my pyroness though, after almost burning down my ranch... We sold the river lot so I dont have anywhere to do fireworks, but thats ok, I'd rather save my money and not burn myself for a change anyway.

    I just remembered, last new years, we had a lil too much to drink (fireworks and alcohol, yay!) and I decided to throw a lit bottle rocket at my friend about 30 yards away. I was aiming to throw it well over his head, but as luck would have it the bitch lit halfway between him and me and ended up nailing him square in the chest, and left about a baseball sized bruise. Luckily, he was a big dumb animal to start with and the booze softened him up so he was ok.
