hmmm...that sounds like a plausable idea...but it would be very expensive to use them for ignitors because u wpuld have to buy those tips for them and u would use one tip per ignition...and what if it fails to work the first time and how would u keep changing the tips??

No way! They're too expensive for multiple shots and are not very consistent.

no. they cost money to buy each one. which is a wast of money in my opinion especially with all the other options like bbq ignightors. all the way up to stun guns

Combustions (if properly made) are completely safe to be by and hold while firing. What made you think otherwise?

Like brooner115 said (well sort of). Rocket ignitors work fine but;
1. They are expensive (well, tens of cents per shot anyway)
2. They are kind of a PITA to change for each shot.

A piezo sparker is simpler, works as well, you can place the spark wherever you want in the chamber (try getting a rocket ignitor at the center of the chamber). Of course, the intial cost is higher for a piezo (unless you cannabalize something).

I don't mean making the cannons explode, I mean making "firecrackers" explode. The mods are kinda up tight about that stuff so I won't go into it any further.
