Try Paliha street kiosks, they have a wide variety of fireworks.

metro station Novoslobodskaya

Can't really help you with WHERE to buy :)

But I can share a funny story, I was in SpB 3 weeks ago and bought some fireworks in a Produkti. 33 Rubles for a box of 12 big things that I figured would be like Black Cats (about 10x1cm big). So, one night back in Moscow after a few beers I decided to test my new fun toys by turning off my bedroom lights, opening the window and tossing one of these big firecrackers down on the street. :verycool: Holy crap! The thing was easily a 1/4 stick of dynamite!!! Huge bang and the concussion was enough to set off about 15 car alams :rolleyes: No way you could buy something like that back home for 2.75 Rubles !!! I'm planning on Ka-Boom-ing many things up this weekend out at the Dacha :) :devilish: :watching:

Don't you need a permit to buy those gas guns? I looked in a shop once and was told that I needed to show my permit before they would open the show-case and let me look at their merchandise. Or maybe back in scary 1996 it wasn't required?

if you really needed a permit for everything you were supposed to need a permit for ,then a lot of us would have nothing .and to your question ...yes
