Before I too any further I am not condoning any dangerous stunts,. acts of immaturity from my teenage years. I did do some things with fireworks which I think is where my love for pyro began.

Of course I do not practice such lunacy these days.

So what started your love affair with pyro?

my love started when i was 14 at the local football pitches someone had left a cake sitting there

we broke up the cake into seperate portions with the fuses still attached and well lighting those began ma love affair with fireworks :D

Going to a local firework shop when i was about 10 with my mum. Totally got me hooked on fireworks.

Just to point out to think before posting, as it is a public board and anything posted can be read by anyone. Even un-registered people/guests.

Yes mine was watching other people going mental, days before bonfire night, That's what gave me the love of pyro :D.

Thank you berry1 for pointing out to everyone :) That these forums are public, everyone can read these boards, so please try to be careful on what you put, i understand its a free speech forum. But that is limited.

hmm my love to pyro... always liked fireworks from such a young age, my father in the past used to get fireworks vertically everyday when they came to the shops because I kept wanting them every night. but I think since last 2 years which I have really kicked off on shopping and wanting bigger and better every year.

I have always had fireworks as far back as i can remember,always looked forward to buying them every year and i still do,just seeing them in the shops is magical,i've certainly seen some changes over the years and although today's fireworks are great i still miss the old British made stuff,i save up all year to make sure i always get at least a two hour display,years ago it was not unheard of me still firing at gone 11:00!,there was a time when i would go in a shop and buy nearly the entire range but things are too expensive to do that now!,when i first started there were only about 10 companies making them,not like today,we always had Pains,Wessex,Standard,Rainbow and Brocks,the biggest was a ten shilling "Thunderflash" from Wessex,we always finished with one of those!

When fireworks covered the whole sky. New Year 2004 when I was 7 and I loved them ever since. This hooked me up first to fireworks and then on Chemistry (LOL).
