    Nice, that Aerial Shot is nice, we used to buy all mortars but it is a PIA.

    Line up a bunch of Mortar tubes on a 2x4 screw them down, put two horizontal boards on the main board, you don't want them tipping over and becoming cannons
    Thats where I used the fuse line to light them all off, one after the other so I can get back from them and see them. Had one go up about 12 feet and go off, once that happens you want to be away from it...

    Found the boxes of smaller mortars like that to be the best, so we string them together makes for a hellofashow...

    Glad you got to fire some off, 'merica!

    Glad you mentioned about them tipping over becoming cannons. I was thinking of that too. I was thinking of going four ways with 2x4’s

    that works, just have a good base, when you light off several together, which we've done, it's great if they all go way up and boom, not so great if it tipped over and you learn what it was like to fight in a war zone...
