Where can I buy bottlerockets?

“Bottle Rockets" are the smallest, most inexpensive version of stickrockets and were prohibited from sale by the Texas legislature several years ago.

These days, the rockets sold at stands during the holiday are referred to as stickrockets. The difference in these items and bottlerockets is the size of the rocket and the potential altitude reached. There was a general concern that bottlerockets did not gain sufficient altitude and, as a result, were not sufficiently extinguished before they fell to the ground.

The Texas Pyrotechnic Association drafted and supported legislation to prohibit these items from sale in Texas even though they continue to be on the list of approved items nationally. This effort resulted in a reduction of over 90% in the number of fireworks-related fires from previous years.
