Same here. They were gray or silver in color and we bought them by the gross in little cardboard boxes.

In the day the silver ones were ash cans or silver salutes and then came the red M-80's. They both had the fuses in the side.Yes they came in those two little cardboard boxes of a 1/2 gross each. The picture I posted of them (post #52) are in fact made illegally but are very much the same power as the originals. Here is a picture of the originals:

We used to poke a nail into the end of a 5 minute railroad flare, pull the nail out and stick the fuse of an M-80 in, and put a piece of tape to hold it. About midnight we'd go a few blocks away, light the flare and drop it down the storm drain in the road in front of some girl's house, then haul *** back to where we had an alibi.. 5 minutes later, there would be a thunderous BOOM through the neighborhood, At about age 15, that was hysterically funny. (actually still brings a smile to my face today! )

who get's their jollies off lighting up firecrackers? I only see that schit on funny YT vids where a fat shirtless pasty white guy lights one off and somehow ends up getting hit in his crotch, meanwhile his brother Cletus is laughing his *** off while filming it saying "this is gonna be on YouTube".
