    I've used these for years. On New Years Eve I fire an old one. They have always worked for me no matter how old.

          Comments about Orion 12-Gauge High-Performance Red Meteor Flares:

          Hello,
          Just a point of interest on longevity.
          This past July 4'th I decided to try some out of date Flares and 12Gu. Meteor's.
          Age ranged from 5 - 9 yr old devices.
          2 out of 6, 12 gu. meteor's performed well. the rest you could not even see a trail in sky from the gun.
          All of the handheld flares ignited and performed excellent and it was pretty old stuff!
          I feel it is definitely in your interest to keep Fresh signaling devices with you.
          Pray the new stuff performs if ever needed.
          God bless & happy fishing.

                              These longer cartridges are easier to unload from the launching pistol than the older Orion cartridges. It is easy to eject them, due to the longer nose that fits into the barrel.
