    ill tell u a story that happened to me last year.....

    we was up in monticello and we had those artellery shells.
    and we were shootin them off and someone put one upside down:crazy:

    so he lit the fuse and BOOM.......

    OH AND i was about 10-20 yards from it


    IT WAS SOOOOOO LOUD...... I CANT EVEN COMPARE IT TO ANYTHING
    like i dont know how many times louder than a 12ga.
    and there were little fire balls flying every where .



    i couldnt see for like 1 min and i couldnt hear for like 4-5min
    after that i had the worst headache


    BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH ANYFIREWORKS!!!
    also if u are using anything like these please make sure u have enough light to make sure it is right side up
    and also get away from these after u light them



    THANKS

    Jeff

    No disrespect meant to you, Jeff.

    My Dad had part of a thumb and index finger blown off by a dynamite cap when he was young.

    All fireworks, guns, shells, etc. are dangerous, and must be used with caution and great care by the person responsible.

    Take care and Happy 4th a day early.

    Yup, fireworks are very unpredicatable at times. You never know if you will run into a dud or not. Also remember just because the wick goes out and it does not go off right away, does not mean it will never go off. Be very, very careful when using fireworks.

    Good post Jeff.
