Thread: Bottle rockets in daytime

    Default Bottle rockets in daytime

    I had an urge to light off something so I grabbed a handful of bottlerockets and lit them off. Broad daylight. It was fun. After they exploded I got to watch them fall back down.
    Anyone else like to lite them off during the daytime?

    I always shoot some Moon Travlers during the day of the 4th. Keeps me from lighting off any of the good stuff!

    I like to do it too but,I use the bigger Texas Pop rockets instead and I like it wayy better because they are cheap and have no color!

    Bottlerockets are like the .22lr of fireworks. They are cheap, plentiful, and everyone loves setting a few off. I love setting them off in the daytime before the real shows start

    I thought bottle rockets were suppose to be used in the day time.
    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    Ditto.

    That's what you do...along with firecrackers...until the sun sets, unless you have Black Cat Silver Tails. And even then...

    I shoot most in the day too. Pisses less people off because nobody is sleeping in the day and people are gone at work so no cops .

    If you have a bigger itch to scratch, you can always light some parachute batallions. Plus the kids love them.

    any firework is always better at night besides smoke items.

    I will shoot whisteling moon travelers all day.
    Between me and my friends (about 4-5 of us) we easily go through at least 15-20 gross every 4th!

    Yup, unwrapped a case of them the other day save myself the trouble on the 4th. I should be able to shoot a gross at a time in my launcherhttp://pyrouniverse.com/forum/showpo...1&postcount=39, so they'll go quick.
    Asking a true pyro how much a show cost to put on is like asking an artist how much a painting costed to paint... It's a ridiculous and stupid question.

    Likewise. It's not like there's much to look at if we're talking regular Moon Travelers.

    Back in the day, good bottle rockets would actually produce a small "break" of smoldering charcoal sparks. As a kid, I could only get a few packs at a time so I'd be sure to save most of them for nightime use for that reason.

    I'm a bottle rocket and whistler in the day time type of guy also. Keeps the time moving as I'm cooking, trying last minute planning of where I want to stick this station or cake. Also keeps my mind off of 'should have gotten this or should have gotten that'. Lots of stress during the fourth. I'm exhausted. Have been fusing, laying things out. I've changed the configuration of my show so many times.

    I shoot them low to the ground against the dark back drop of trees out back. Cloudy days even better and a little light rain is perfect.

    I only shoot them in the daytime. I also use firecrackers and smoke bombs. I like rolling smoke bombs towards the street. Its funny to watch them cheap old smoke balls roll. Or I throw them up in the air just before they start smoking.
