can I buy bottlerockets?
Rockets" are the smallest, most inexpensive version of stickrockets and
were prohibited from sale by the Texas legislature several years ago.
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.
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.
