I'm starting to think I'm going to stop going to my local B&M. I bought a BC Jumbo straight billiard from them. It was my first pipe and I wanted a good one (well before finding PSF and learning about cobs). I then found out I didn't like straight pipes and that a jumbo bowl didn't fit into my current time allotment for smoking. I looked online to see what a reasonable trade in expectation would be based on current prices. I was floored. I paid almost double what I saw the same price for online in multiple stores. I feel like I just got robbed while they were smiling. This got me thinking and I looked up the other pipes I bought there and with the exception of one pipe it was the same thing. I guess what I'm asking is do I need to buy new pipes online or is this B&M just greedy? On the plus side they do have some really great tins and keep them in stock.
