New here my name is Gareth and rocketry is really my thing particularly sugar based fuels. But pyro is starting to bite me and am trying to absorb as much as possible at the moment.
Will mainly probably be active in the rocketry forum for now but watch out pyros i will be back with plenty of questions once I get up and running.
oops sorry feel free to lock, delete move this mods.

My other hobbies/interests include chemistry, metalurgy, ceramics, guitar (& bass), HEs, drawing, building/DIY, and very big paintings. I would also be a radio scanning guy if scanners were cheaper.
(I'd like to meet more texas pyros and mabey have a meetup/4th celebration sometime, it would be freakin sweet! Currently i only know of one other texan pyro who actually knows what he is doing though.)

I've been in Pyrotechnics for 12 years, HE for 7, and currently took my talent to the Military. Yeah, I got my security clearance and I know "they" are watching me ::waves to the men in black::
Looked through a bit of the forum and wow, I must say I've been missing out by not getting here sooner! A fellow smoke & fire-breather email me this link, the Admin should put an ad in American Fireworks News-
Hopefully I'll be around enough to make some good posts here but if yall ever need a question answered on the side, feel free to email me at yahoo. I'm on the IM 90% of the time.

I have been folloing this forum for awhile and hope that I can contribute some of the things I have learned about the pyrotechnic arts.
For the last two years I have been perfecting the art of building small scale hand built sky rockets using cheap,readily avalable materials. Most notably the brown paper grocery bag.

Then I got married......no more pyro. (bitchy wife voice) "You're going to blow yourself up and I won't have that stuff in the garage, do you want the FBI staking out the house? huh? is that what you want? Mr. I can blow stuff up?"
So now I'm 34, divorced and have all the chem's and paper tubes I want in the garage and shed out back. My favorite time of year is New Years or the 4th when I pack up all my gear and head to my uncle's place in Mississippi. 75 acres of trees and clearings. It's great to make something, walk right out of the barn and shoot it! My uncle says I'm now his favorite nephew.

And then I will make some more 'interesting' devices with gunpowder and fireworks (improvised of course.)
That's about all really.

Let me introduce myself.
I'm a dude from Holland.
I love pyro (who doesn't)
Since Holland is a crappy place to live for the die-hard pyro-fan, i'm searching my ass off to get my supplies. No good luck so far..
I've made a couple of starmines, shells and fountains and one 54shots cakebox. Here is a 2" shell of mine:
Beside doin' stuff with fire, I like to animate, make video's, listen to music (rock, DnB, blues and more) smoke pot to get as high as a rocket, play some guitar and hang with my friends..
That would it be for so far.
