No, really though. Heading up to I-town to sight in my new 12 gauge and choose the proper choke for bird spray, doing a bbq and riding the trails.

Coming back from the Fish from Vermont show on the 3rd (none on the 4th), and weather cooperating... hitting two parties, the second at Thundernut's to watch the fireworks.  If the weather is not cooperating, hangtime on my back porch with my friends who are in town for the SPAC shows.

I could.  :lol:

 

We don't have a huge setup... its usually a mix of bottle rockets, roman candles, the small bricks of firecrackers & a few fountains.  Last year I got my hands on some sparklers & brought them for the kids (they loved them), hoping I can find some again this year but its looking doubtful  :sad:   Sucks... I used to have them every year when I was a kid.  I handed them out last year & most of the kids who were at the party had never seen them before.

I will make my stop at the Phantom fireworks store in Pennsylvania. Not going nuts...maybe a few medium sized cakes will be the biggest things. Roman candles are a must!

 

Kinda sad that you cant even buy sparklers in NY.

love me some mortars but for obvious reasons I can probably not go anywhere near them... although it would be pretty cool to mount a whole battery of them to my chair... might need some earplugs and a fire suit though :lol:

Back when I shot a fair amount of .41 Rem Mag, I rolled my own, because it was almost impossible to find and when I could, it was very pricy. Might not hurt to grab some more dies for some other stuff too. hmmmm...

I bought 5 525 box bricks of 22 lr back when I got the ruger. Now, I can not and have not been able to find a single solitary box.

 

I got lucky at a Dicks and scored a 100 rd box of 5 shot winchester turkey load last time I was there. Of course, it wasnt cheap. But it'll last a while. The other thing that seems fleeting are deer slugs. When i finally did find them at a walley world, they would only allow me to buy three boxes....or 15 shots. :rolleyes:
