I'm considering making a trip out of going to Nelson's Fireworks in Dallas around the 24th of June to pick up a relatively small order (less than $1,000) by Pyro Universe standards.
Since it's going to be a bit of a drive, around seven to eight hours for me, I was wondering if anyone else has had experience there, and could give me an idea if driving up to this location is as good a deal as it sounds. I did talk to Mr. Nelson on the phone a few times, he said that his prices were less than wholesale on occasion because he imports so much product that he can afford to undercut a bit, and that his prices certainly beat most consumer prices available to me. He also mentioned that a vast majority of his artillery shells were made in Beihai, and even generic products like the Dragon Black Box were of a higher quality than is generally available. Mr. Nelson was quite knowledgeable, and a real gentleman, taking time to answer my questions on the phone. I'd just like a second verification on some of the things he told me, not that I don't believe him, but it is a big trip, caveat emptor.
So in a nutshell, has anyone been here before, and is it as good as it seems?
