I have no idea what these match rockets are but I can tell you that
about 25 years ago when my cousin was 12 he was with two friends
in a garage across the street from his house.
My Aunt heard a huge bang & the garage door across the street blew out.
Well the boys were being boys, hammering down the end of a pipe bomb.
This was way out on the Island (Long Island, NY).
Anyhow about a 12 hour operation, saved his hand, lost a few fingers.
Saved the leg, dug lots of junk out of it & used part of it to graft the
My two cents: if a match rocket can do the same damage, don't go there.
Now it could be real harmless for all I know.
If it is..............sorry to be a panic merchant.
