About a half-hour ago I (finally) tried out the electrical system I bought from scooter along with some talon igniters. 2 small 200g cakes, 3 rings shells, a KOD, and a Gettysburg. The system worked sweet. Thanks again Scooter!
About the second shot into the first 200g cake the new neighbor kids behind me start screaming at us from behind a screen of trees. My kids tell me they were yelling to get me to stop. I told them they were crazy and lit the shells. There was more yelling, a pause when the first three shells ended, then someone yelled something about it not being the 4th of July yet just before the KOD went off. Then no more yelling. Somehow the Gettysburg went off about 3 seconds after that.
The 200g cakes were from Freedom First and were quite nice. I'd recommend them. The ring shells were pretty quiet as shells go, but as has been noted in other threads were nicely shaped. The Gettysburg wasn't too obnoxious either noise-wise.
It's Saturday evening and not even 8:30. I can't tell if they were serious with the yelling or not, but I have lots more testing I need to do to get the hang of this igniter system and figure out what the real limitations are. I thought I was being considerate. I hope things don't get too tense, but we're in the county and I can shoot every day of the year if I like. I don't. I also don't go late into the night. Still, if there's going to be a problem I'll have to work through it. Thankfully my stockpile is up to it (thank you Stoney for introducing me to Mr. KOD!).
