    Salutes are NOT consumer fireworks and cannot be sold to consumers. You have to have a Type 54 and many other things to be qualified to use them legally. Going on a public forum or Facebook and asking how to get them only puts anyone that is not licensed in danger of being prosecuted by the law enforcement agencies.
    If you don’t have the licenses and insurance to legally purchase and possesses salutes the best thing to do is join a local fireworks club like the PGI or WPA or many others. You can get information on these clubs here
    http://www.pyrofan.com/forum/forumdi...-amp-Festivals

    The reason people do not discuss salutes is because it will only help to get yourself and anyone willing to sell them to you in legal trouble and we do not want that to happen.

    You can preach to the choir, but the dimwits wanting to spend big bucks getting overloads are still going to be no matter what the wisest people in the trade will say. Weather they can't get a 54 due to personal problems or they just don't want to go through the problems with the feds. Who knows. As long as there is a person who wants to make a buck and a person who has to be the "Big man on the Block" Your going to have the clowns always trying to go around the law.

    Remember this train wreck!!!

    You know- maybe that should be one of the requirements-

    All group buy people need to belong to a club(and prove it) BEFORE entering into a group buy. Rather than reaping the benefits of the firework trade, they should help clubs(either national or regional) that are promoting fireworks.

    What? your not in a regional or national pyrotechnic club? Maybe your in the "Legend in your our mind club?". I would bet on the later.

    PGI, any regional club- Any club that is on here. No- not the Legends club.

    I am a part of many regional clubs and the PGI, those statements/questions my friend were sarcasm and humor. Heathen dave and I were being facetious, and having fun. Nothing wrong with a lil fun from time to time......

    I just decided to start E-firing last week. Why doesn't Cobra have a 50% OFF SALE going on????? SO tired of lighting my Festival Ballzz with a BIC!!

    Can I get in on a group buy? I won't have any money until July 2nd if that's OK. They'll deliver it to my house, right?

    Re: Attention New Members!

    Not really sure how a club really matters, unless your maybe into mfg. that’s coming from a pgi and wpag member. Even as a club member the legality is so fuzzy, I’m not sure how you’d get legally into mfg without a atf mfg permit and storage. As far as newbies I don’t think many will come here, most stick to YouTube, and fb groups nowadays, the forum culture is dieing like the dodo bird.

    I'm in a club. Manufacturing isn't a big part of it for me. Pyromusicals, group orders, group shoots, and borrowing equipment on the other hand...

    I agree with SeanMcBoom, club membership has been invaluable for me: meeting pyro friends, having great fun, learning new techniques, group buys, useful advice, do's and don'ts, favors, etc. My pyro experiences would be so limited without my friends I met in my PAT club.
