I'm wishing I had something left to fire. Even just a couple of rockets. So tempted just to pop down asda and buy a couple of cheapo bits

Some of the stuff from Jonathan's fireworks,it performed nothing like the videos and was over in seconds and it wasn't cheap either!,some of the small stuff i got from a local discount store was better,i think it must have been old spec. as it was really loud,proper air bombs too which really surprised me!,Brothers stuff was excellent as always!,i have made some videos which i will upload and share when i get time.

Looks like a lot of stock vids on Jonathan's, i'm always wary of that.

sounds awesome, glad it went well for you , might start saving now for next year as i normally just spend around £80 - £120 in the supermarkets but just keep needing better pyro.

If you save about 10 pounds a week or so then you will be able to afford decent pyro next year :)

good idea even buy a money tin for a £1 from poundshop and call it the firework fund then nearer the time you can open it with a tin opener

sounds like a good idea, a good new years resolution. I might get a couple of decent pieces of 1.3g pyro for new year and then save up £10 a week for bonfire night and get lots of 1.3g pyro.
