yknow what you could do to get around the issues of shipping... since tobacco isnt like homebrew (unless you have picked, cured, and or mixed it yourself) you could just say "hey, Im really enjoying this product" "ok, I'll buy some of that on saturday if you buy some of this"...

$8-12/oz? Where are you guys buying your tobacco? I just paid 1.75/oz for McBarren's loose leaf, 2.75/oz if shipping and tax is included. I always considered McBarrens decent tobacco. Is it considered drugstore stuff?

Of the three I recently bought, I could have gotten them online at about $9-$15 a tin. Double that for shipping, and then add taxation and it's basically the same. Also, I bought a couple Dan Tobacco products and those tend to be really high for some reason.

Dan Tobacco? Never heard of it so looked it up. I was going to ask if it's worth the price but if you're buying it I guess so.

I'll not give up my pipes but, I just ponied up for an eCig in hopes that I can get off the Marlboro's.

I like to smoke pipe but get nothing from it chemically. Meaning even after I've smoked a bowl I feel the desire to smoke a cigarette too.

YES! Blue Note is by far my most favored blend. This newer (to me) DaVinci blend is catching up.

I could smoke on those two and nothing else and be a happy man. If only I got enough Nicotine from pipe.

I think I'm blowing smoke out of my pipe. I just double checked my order, it was a 3.5 oz tin of MacBaren Virginia from Pipes and Cigar for 14.65. What arrived is 8 ounces of loose leaf Virginia #1. I was a bit dissappointed it was loose leaf because I ordered a tin. - Strike 1

But thought 8 oz is alot of tobacco for ~$15. I talked to a guy at the store and he said my 8 oz of loose leaf should be $19 (okay but I wanted a tin dmnd it) He said I could return at my cost and once they recieved it they'd send out the tin. Strike 2

No offer to send a new tin first with a free return shipping label. Strike 3

Maybe I'm being hard on them. But I wanted a tin! errgh!
