    But I'm not afraid to learn! I picked up two MO Meers Pride pipes, some cleaners, a tamping tool and will use patches 'til I can get a soft flame lighter.

    Other than that, I'm a total newb to pipe smoking!

    I am new as well, but I have one suggestion: start off with your tobacco too dry instead of too wet. if it doesnt crumble when you pack your pipe it wasn't too dry. I got bit a lot going straight from the tin to the pipe.

    Welcome! When I started on pipes, I read everything I could find.... Most of the actual useful info came from here. Read, ask questions... Hell, you can even PM me for my # and I'll help in any way I can. It takes a little effort but the rewards are worth it!

    No baccy? LOL to pipes

    Sign up for the NPS. It will cost you 1 tin of tobacco and you'll receive a bunch of samples in return. It's a great way to begin to get an idea of what you like and what you don't. Watch some of the Youtube videos on packing, lighting etc. I was amazed at how informative some of them are. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and appreciate the differences between pipes and cigars.

    +1 to the NPS trade, well worth it, your baccy education will move forward in leaps and bounds.
    Have fun and enjoy.

    It didn't take long... I have these MM Prides sitting here empty... I was afraid to buy tins of tobacco without knowing WTF I'm doing, but I'll jump in to the NPS as soon as I can get a few tins at the lounge!

    No Jessica, I think you don't yet understand how the NPS trade goes. You get paired up with a FOG and they tell you what tin of tobacco that they want, you get that and send it to them and then they bomb you with a bunch of tobacco samples to try. That way you get a idea of what you like by trying different ones without buying blindly.......
