    That's an awesome song! I've got to get that into a show soon.



    Thanks Joe. I wish I had access to salutes. Music would be the least of my concerns! But your point is well taken. Thanks.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm going to re-listen to both the old and new soundtracks and make a decision. I almost feel like I'm cheating! But I guess there's nothing wrong with that if it makes...
  3. To Recycle Or Not Recycle? That Is The Question!

    So because I'm bored, I have a question for the masses.

    As most of you may remember, I had a pretty spectacular rain delay last year, and my show was s--t because of it. The audio started late,...

    A sharpie and a piece of poster board might work, but I would encourage you to use some type of computer program. If you use Open Office (which is totally free) you'll have the equivalent of MS...

    Birdman - Thanks for the kind words. I have learned a ton from some of the smartest pyros on the planet! Guys on this site like PyroJoeNEPA and Esgrillo, et. al. These guys have forgotten more about...

    Fox - I am very happy to hear that my drawings helped you. I'm a visual learner. I have to conceptualize it and document it to understand it. The more detail you can add to your drawing the better...

    I use milk crates for racks so all I need are the mortar tubes. I've got a really nice 36 shot rack (from Pyroboom!) that didn't even make it into the show this year because I didn't order enough...

    By the way... When it comes to setting up a show, your only limit is going to be your wallet and your imagination. Usually in that order. If you're not adding music; or if you just plan on having...

    So here are the setup drawings from my last 3 years worth of shows:

    In 2017 I started with 4 Cobra mods. It was pretty basic. I tried to have at least 2 of each type of cake going at a time. One...

    I don't know if they were heat seeking, but they sure found my happy ass! That's okay. We had willows raining down on us during one of the shows when we Florida boys were freezing our asses off. So...

    Hopefully one of the advertiser reps will chime in on that. I haven't heard a thing about it until your post. Time for me to do some Googling I think!

    @Birdman - Next time you accidentally delete your entire post, try Ctrl-Z to get it back. It's saved my butt numerous times.

    @Birdman and PyroKing31 - I'll do some digging when I get time and see...

    I used to love those butterflies as a kid. You could buy them pretty much anywhere. And as you indicated, they were cheap! So we always loaded up on those, smoke balls, and snakes! Those were super...

    Making a pipe bomb for a gender reveal (or anything else!) is never a good idea.

    Dang that would be nice! I could use another 100 tubes. I'd jump all over a free shipping offer.

    Ordinarily I would agree with the advice Birdman gave you 110%. His advice is very good. The ONLY reason I would disagree this time is, I (and many others in here!) went the route of the cheap...

    The best way to wire talons are to twirl them into a big ball and then throw them in the trash! I hate talons. Way too unreliable IMHO.

    Sounds to me like the answer is - If money changes hands anywhere in the process, then you have to be placarded, insured, CDL, etc.

    So you'd make $9,060 if you sold the firecrackers for $0.25 for a pack of 100. Roughly a $5800 profit!

    Lol... We all have at least 1 neighbor like that. In fact my buddy once told me - There's an a**hole in every neighborhood. If you don't know who it is in your neighborhood, chances are, it's you!

    You said you use the gray fast-fuse right now for your shells, but you're looking to see if you can get your hands on quickmatch. (paraphrasing of course) I'm wondering why? I use the gray fast-fuse...
