I'll take a PM as well

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I got mortars in IN on my way back from picking up my bike. I use those every year. Had to get the obligatory whistling bottle rockets and Black Cats too.

Ground salutes (what you may call 1/4 sticks) have been basically dry in this area since around 99 when the main builder was picked up by the BATF and jailed. You'll still find some floating around in small quantities, but it's nothing like it used to be. My advice to all is to stay away from the ground salutes even if you do find them. Penalties for that sort of thing are worse than before, and you're not very likely to walk off without punishment if you're found with them in your possesion. It's not like being picked up with consumer fireworks, they take the ground salutes more seriously.

As far as shells (what you may call mortars) you can find 1.75" colors in Indiana all over the place. Some shops will get in 2.5" or 1.75 - 2" salutes, but these are typically under the counter or back room deals that you will never see unless you ask for them specifically. These stores are often called 'hot shops'. There are more than a few of them.

Any state you go to, Indiana, Tennessee ect will all have basically the same stuff unless you stumble into a hot shop. The laws are regulated across the board of amount of pyrotechnic/explosive composition allowed in each class of device. If the shops follow the laws they are supposed to, you'll find basically the same everywhere you go.

Pffft, make your own. It's the ONLY way to go.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

Hey guys, remember this is an "open" forum. shhh.
But I know a neighbor that happend to be in IN on biz and picked up all types of mortar and rockets since he was there for a couple of days. He dropped close to a g. At this point, watch out for cops checking for out of state plates. No M80s or big ground stuff is available. After going to a big show we are just going to hang out and watch my neighbors in the Cul-de-sac try to outdo each other.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
