    So I sit down tonight to make my monthly tobacco order. I am looking to get a pound of PS Bullseye Flake and 2 tins of Club Blend. My first e-tailer of choice is smokingpipes. Hmmmmm, they seem to be out of Bullseye. Alright then, off to 4noggins instead. Hooray they have Bullseye in stock. Add to cart...check. Now navigate over to MacB.....there's Club Blend......WTF! Out of stock.

    Odds of that happening - not likely.
    Odds of that happening to me today - 100%.

    Anyone else have a similar experience where it seems the mighty Tobacco Gods are against them?

    I have the same thing happen to me. I try to wait it out. And in the case of smokingpipes it's usually not that long a wait.

    Welcome to the world of pipe tobacco e-shopping. I'd discuss this further, but my thumb isn't going to suck itself!

    Club Blend?






    This cannot be. I will speak to Rich, and get to the bottom of this.

    While I have not ordered any Club Blend, I will say us Marylander's are all scrambling to get some final orders in before the law changes on May 1 (as discussed already in a couple of other threads).

    So, if any of you find out it was "all shipped to Maryland" just remember that it's only a temporary set back for you. In a few days you won't have us to compete against... just think, when Stonehaven finally come in, folks here in MD won't be in on the mad dash.

    Ohhhhh yeah, happens all the time. Wanted to place an order yesterday for three Gawith Hoggarths: Kendal Flake, Ennerdale, and Bob's Chocolate (haven't had the latter two). There is a place that has all three, but they want $60/lb...

    I have a standard set of McClelland tins that I always have on hand and am cellaring. There are six of 'em, and whenever I want to put the cellar one row deeper I usually have to order from at least two places to get all six. There needs to be an Amazon for tobacco. ;)

    You know what's odd is since I started smoking a pipe I have made about 30 online orders and I have never had this happen to me. I'm not sure if I just smoke blends they have a deep stock of or if I have just been lucky thus far.

    I had the mason jars ready and everything for that Bullseye..... :hot:

    I havent seen PS Bullseye in a while . At least a month I guess . PS Navy Flake has been going in and out as well . I cant remember a time when certain bulk blends were hard to get . Lately though , there seems to be a good number

    My local baccy shop sells PS Bullseye in bulk. When I smoke the last of my supply of Dunhill Navy Rolls I'll likely just get some of the bulk Bullseye. I doubt if I could taste the difference between the two.
