    OK, I've been smoking a pipe for over a month now and enjoy it very much. In this time I've have picked up a 1/2 bent basket briar, 5 MM cobs and realized I enjoy virginias much better than English blends. I really like the looks of the straight Dublin style pipes and also the straight billiards. I'm pretty much on a tight budget at the moment, being laid-off since Janurary (I'm an union electrician) but I did a little side job and earned a little extra cash. So, my little woman told me I could spend $50.00 on a pipe, she's such a great person. I've been looking all over the place for a smooth black dublin or billard in this price range with no luck. Being new to pipes I'm a little leary of buying estates or from the bay. Can somebody point me in the right direction of a site or place to buy one. I have check the for sale sections on a couple forums but no luck. I would even settle for a sandblasted black or a slight bend if I have to. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    In the last few months I have purchased over a dozen pipes from that auction site and have had no trouble. Just gotta find the reliable sellers and you will be fine. I will give you one name: Pipestud. His store is a great place to start.

    No prob. That's what we're all here for.

    Also, it allowed me to procrastinate on my homework.
