Just finished up inventory for the 5th year and getting ready for a new season of sales.If you're buying fireworks this year I'd really appreciate your business and June 25th thru July 1st I will give back 10% of all sales to planeteers to Kyle and Chiefs Planet.Sorry,I can't do more but I work for another company and my percentage take is only 20% but it's still a way we can all help a little.

I also have to make this just through July 1st because my last 3 days are so busy I couldn't keep up or have time to keep track and say hello for a bit.

Here's a link to the company's website (http://www.kaboomersfireworks.net/).We have 21 buy 1 get 1 frees this year and I have personally seen about 75% of our products so I can help your dollar go farther and put a good show together for you.

My location is air-conditioned and we have a good selection,here's a couple of pics of my place in St Joe

Kidding or not associating me with that place hurts.

Damn, Its times like this when I really miss Missouri. in Ohio, its illegal. They only allow things like sparklers, snakes, noisemakers, those plastic bottles with pull strings that spray confetti (not sure what they're called), and generally non-explosive type items. Yes, Ohio lawmakers are fucking pansys.

I'll match this. Any ChiefsPlanet home projects scheduled between now and the end of June I'll donate 10% of the profits to the Planet. This applies to ad sales as well. If you need to advertise a product or service in KC, I have an effective print ad medium with which to do so.

I know its probably illegal, as far as I know Fireworks aren't legal in CA.

But if you are willing to forgo the legalities here, I am willing to pay $$$$

I've got some decent water resistant crackers called TM Magnums,they're not M-80 power by any means but they do go off in water and they're buy 1 get 1 free this year.

Pretty far to get some fireworks, but I might hafta check it out since CP gets a kickback. I was serious about the sparklers though thats all I've gotten for the past 3 years. I might check out something new this year though.

I only sell C class fireworks so we're limited to 500 grams of gunpowder which still makes for some nice bangs but the 500 gram shots also include color etc. and all go quite high in the air.

My best of the lot here is called Sky On Fire.

Speaking of M80s, just out of curiosity, what's your biggest thing that goes "boom" in that lot?

As far as I'm aware, all "firecrackers" that fall into that type of category are mandated to have the same amount of powder/explosive materials in them regardless of the size of the firecracker. That means that those crackers that look like the old M-80's (which were banned from manufacturing in the late '60's and banned for sale in the early 70's) to those "lady finger" type crackers are all the same thing.

Also, I'm pretty sure that the events of 9-11 had the fireworks industry take a huge hit in terms of what materials were available for use in publicly available fireworks. I know that a lot of the better fireworks that were available prior to 9-11 became suddenly banned for production and consumer use afterwards. I use to enjoy shooting off fireworks on the 4th. These days, it seems that most of the fireworks are very repetitive and bland in terms of their presentations - especially the smaller ones. The bigger ones are okay, but it now takes somebody spending about $100 on a single firework to get any type of impact when you used to be able to spend $25 for the same type of effect (or even better).

Nothing like your government making sure that it's citizens are well looked after. We all know that we need babysitting to the point that they federalized f'ing seatbelt usage enforcement, finger print everyone with a drivers license, and make sure that you don't burn your fingers on firecrackers. I wonder what the framers of the Constitution would think about the development of their anti-monarchial/oligarchial conceptualizations for the governing body of the US?

Actually I have a few $9 multi-shots Busted,Wet & Wild and Missle Launch that I put ahead of some of my $20-$30 range fireworks.Granted they're not B-Class boomers but for a neighborhood show they're more than A-OK

You're seriously going to use jumping jacks in an argument for overpriced fireworks? :rolleyes:

I don't know where you're seeing prices for us,they're not on the website,so I assume you're just blowing smoke.How about you list some artillery shells,some multi-shots and some large fountains and we can do a proper comparison.
