    Also taking that class will get u a atf permit and lic's to purchase class b fireworks & able to make your own if you want. Getting caught without the lic's and permits to do that wow i wouldnt want that trouble :wink: My gf's brother and i are going to take a class in fall so we can buy class B fireworks ex. m-80's 3 to 8 inch shells cakes above 500gram's not really intrested in makin my own fireworks i like my face and hands :roll_eyes:

    You are in public talking about building a bomb. I'm sure you don't mean harm but in today's world be careful.

    Missouri and just a handful of states you can get class b fireworks its not really hard to get your hands on that type of stuff in missouri but i rather have the atf permit's and lic's to handle such explosive's lol i have done some stupid stuff in my life but im smart enuf to know when i need to take the proper courses for handling such item's :smile2: Also people who do buy cousumer fireworks, dont let the 500 gram cakes steer you away from the 200 gram item's Some 200 gram fireworks are better than 500 gram items, a lot of that 500 gram stuff is just a marketing ploy everything you buy will have a max of 6grams of lauch powder and so on and so forth for the visual breaks and the salute breaks, your best buy for the buck will be 500gram foutian's and sprinkler cakes more visual stuff, you want big bangs buy artillery shells with the name of Black momba, or sweet 16's thier off brand name made by the same company. they have the loudest salute's trust me on this ive spent 1000's on 1000's on fireworks i usally buy wholesale didnt have the money this year :sad2:

    You gotta be careful with that stuff. A friend of mine had an uncle making them in his basement when they went off. Cracked the foundation and obliterated his hands and arms up to his elbows, needless to say he didn’t make it.

    Human its very difficult here in Illinois to get any kind of fireworks license. Better off to go to Missouri and sneak your legal there toys back. Dont advertise what your carrying either. Our fireworks laws are almost as bad as our gun laws.

    Dear Friend,
    Please consider in this day and time many folks have been killed,wounded and or mamied by an interest in making things that go boom!

    The goverment will have a deem view on this interest!
    It is a profession for some and lots of training is required, should you make a mistake, there has in the past, seen many deaths!

    Please lose this interest or it could cost you more than you know!

    Brian

    if i were you i'd stay away from trying to make fireworks, you can ask a friend of mine how that stuff works out he might write to you but he lost his fingers about 20 years ago trying to do the thing your asking about
