Do you think insurance companies cover this kind of injury or even death?

 

And who the hell decides they need to use commercial grade fireworks? :D

 

Thinning of the herd.

exhibit a

 

exhibit b

 

(warning, both stories are basically tragic)

 

I read about the woman in exhibit b as it is not far from my house. I didn't realize until this story that she worked there. That's where I get my car washed every week and now I know exactly who she is (the only woman I've ever seen work there). :D

Wow, sad...but people need to realize you leave commercial grade "explosives" to professionals...

I know the thing is bigger & better fireworks for the consumer. Everybody wants to put on their own professional looking display, but at some point somebody has to realize the average person should not be handling these type of fireworks...and that's coming from someone who as a kid literally blew up everything I could find.

3 inch mortars are used by regular people all the time.....they're not illegal or anything.

 

Me thinks you need to get a ruler. That kiddie stuff you buy is not 3". Maybe 1.5.

To my knowledge, you do not need a license to buy up to a 3 inch mortar. For 4 and 5 inch mortars you do need a license. I usually buy 2 inch mortars.

I walked by a display of snappers last night after reading that the dude had blown his hand off with only 100 of them. SOOO easy (and inexpensive) to get that many. :D
