3 Things To Consider When Buying Artillery Firework Shells

Are you getting ready to invest in some artillery firework shells for an upcoming event or holiday? Here are a few things to consider while you shop.

Combination Packs

You may be able to save some money by purchasing combo packs of firework shells that include a variety of different firework designs. Not only can you avoid the hassle of having to pick and choose different types of fireworks shells to invest in, but many combo packs are priced to be less than if you were to buy each shell that comes in the packs separately. For example, if the shells in a combo pack usually cost $20 each, you might get a 5-combo pack for $89. It all depends on the retailer you're working with and how they choose to market their products.

There is one big downside to buying combo packs though, and that's the fact that you cannot typically customize the packs to include the exact types of firework shells you want to display during an upcoming holiday or celebration. If you are picky about the types of shells you're investing in, combo packs might not be the right option for you.

Return Policies

It is always a good idea to make sure that all return policies for any firework shells being invested in are carefully read and understood. If any wording in the policy is not clear, it's important to ask a representative exactly what is indicated so that you have a clear understanding of what to do and expect if you need to return a firework shell for some reason. Some policies are time-limited, while others restrict the reasons for accepting returns. Don't just assume that any firework shells you end up buying can be returned for a refund or even a replacement.

Local Laws and Ordinances

Another important thing to consider when deciding what kind of firework shells to invest in is the laws and ordinances that are in place in your city and/or county. If necessary, contact your county and let them know the exact types of shells you're intending on buying and using to determine whether they are legal or not.

Find out what the fireworks handling requirements are in terms of things like having a water source and the location you'll be using to set your fireworks off. You should also find out what kinds of fines and other consequences could be faced if you end up using firework shells that are not legal in your area.
