I'm Souvik, age 43 from West Bengal, India. Live with spouse & kid(in 7th standard).
I try to do pyro because a well built product outweighs a consumer one and gives me immense satisfaction. One can cook a curry with slightly tampering the recipe that may not affect the taste much. But in pyro no question at all.
Besides that consumer fireworks most of the time are nastily overpriced. I love creating different effects. I've been doing this limitedly over many years but last few years the practices accelerated a lot.
Here due to stringent rules necessary chemicals are not available and no. of accessories are not sold. So I need to depend on old toiling techniques. Rather pyrotechnic is seldom encouraged.
I consider this as fantastic platform to learn the artistry of fireworks.
Here I have a dream to share. I wish to go to Malta & have a hand on experience with those expart fireworks.

Greeting all! Jeremy from Georgia here! 40 years old, overly cautious (now), and still have all my appendages! Recently getting back into pyrotechnics after a three year hiatus.
I have experience with rockets, small aerial shells, stars, and various forms of black powder salutes. Yes, admittedly, I have some very limited experience with flash, but I've seen enough videos on YouTube of the dangers, and I have made a personal choice to avoid any form of flash powder in my pyrotechnics at all costs. I've been a lurker here on APC for long enough to know that most people who are interested in FP are looking to make salutes and reports, and are typically irresponsible teenage boys. LOL
My primary reason for being here is to learn more about the safety and techniques involved in making pyrotechnics for personal/family entertainment and enjoyment, and quite honestly, to learn how to make more with less. I prefer safe and simple, using fewer and "safer" chemicals to make a variety of different effects, as opposed to having lots of chemicals that could potentially (and dangerously) react or decompose over time, for just a few specific purposes. I'm really interested in all the different ways black powder and variations on black powder can be employed from everything from lift and burst to various forms of stars, primes, fountains, and comets. Rockets are also a big interest in mine, having started out with Estes model rockets as a teenager, and I would love to learn how to make whistle, strobe, and rockets with headings, as well as home made Estes type rockets complete with recovery parachutes.
Looking forward to learning as much as I can from the wealth of information here at APC! It's great to meet you guys!
