Best retail Orion 12 gauge flares

Can someone point me to the best prices for the 12 Orion 12 gauge flares I need?
Ours are all 2007 and the Orion replacement is only valid for flares within the 4 year date.
We live near Duncan, BC, Vancouver Island.

Re: Best retail Orion 12 gauge flares

Hapi, if you've got something like a WalMart with a sports section, they're usually cheaper than a marine chandlery.


But those 12g flares? If you've ever seen them being shot off, they're really unimpressive. I've seen cheap fireworks outperform them.


The hand-launched "rocket" flares, each in a separate tube, work MUCH better. And if you're carrying them for safety rather than rule compliance, the SOLAS-rated flares make all of those look like kiddie toys.


FWIW.
