    Pretty sure that most fireworks sold for home use are made with black powder. Imported from China, of course! :rolleyes:

    No, Not Black Powder.... Much more likely it would have been, either a Metallic Powder like Zinc dust, or Magnesium dust, and Sulfur, or Potassium Chlorate and Sulfur, based Powder. Black Powder is a Class A Explosive, and shipping is Regulated very heavily, but the later Energetics are the same as Smokeless, for shipping, and ORM-D DOT Rules. Just about ALL Fireworks are ORM-D Classed, due to the Powder Used.
