Shooting blanks on 4th

That sounds like fun, but there is a city ordnance where I live against discharging a firearm in the city limits. I'd rather not test it to see if blanks are exempt from that code.:cool:

i just shoot lead like crazy today. 357 rifle, 45acp and a 1919 8mm semi auto machine-gun.
All over little crackers, big boomers flares, roman candles, mortar shells have been going off all day. It is a glorious day.
I even had the privledge of standing at full attention and saluting the ensign as I recited the pledge of allegence.

I AM AN AMERICAN, White, proud and blessed to be part of the greatest nation on EARTH.

Happy birthday America, I love you

So it sound like my answer was no. Not surprised, I am also in city limits so of course it was not an option for me either.

One year (back when I lived outside the city) I did use up a dozen or so expired 12ga marine flairs.
