We don't often do fireworks, but this year we had family here. By far the most fun for me are the mortars, the package deals that come with a launch tube and an assortment of small bombs (~2") that go up about 200 ft and then detonate with effects. They have a long fuse. Drop it in, light the fuse, pop goes the weasel, with Oohs and Aahs.... Great fun.
Except when the asshole sarnev brothers used one in boston, wish they were both dead.
Start up company in the UK is trying to end fireworks, they plan on using drones with lights to take their place. Me, I'd like to see both. They put up the drones, and I get to shoot big ass fireworks up there to knock them down. Won't happen I know, but a guy has to keep some dreams...
