I haven't done it in a while, but for a spell my pipe uniqueness was I smoked it in a local library, Post Office, PetsMart, WalMart, Hardware stores, and the whiskey store. Might be other places. But haven't been that much of a rebel in a while.

I blame FredSfor that.

I haven't seen anybody recently loaf his pipe with ribbon or shag by mounding it in his left hand, inverting the pipe and making circles over the mound until it's magically filled, but considering that's the way I was taught there must be others.
Were you actually taught this? Just curious as that is old school...like archaeologically old school.
Yes, I was. I was taught to smoke correctly in the mid to late '90's by a fellow at the shop that noted me struggling. Mr. Campbell would have been in his mid 70's then. I'm surprised other people don't do it. It's surprisingly simple and effective. The bowl is loaded in under ten seconds and loaded perfectly. It even has that rifled twist das was on about.
I haven't seen anyone use that method, under the age of 80, since the mid '90's. Old school respect.
I will try this the next time I smoke some shag.
Works with ribbon and rubbed out flake, too.
Yep. I'm going to try this.
I always had better luck with small to medium pipes, though. Its been years but it always worked great with my old Grabows and Kaywoodies.

You're going to have to demonstrate this at the next hootenanny. I don't think that I've ever seen this done and I'm having difficulty even picturing the method that you're talking about.

Maybe more of a pipe preference than a smoking habit, but I like to file off the p-lip portion of my Peterson stems. I’m a clencher and I find this to be the most comfortable bit shape. More meat than a typical saddle without the weird angle of the p-lip.
I've done this to all my P-Lips too. P-Lip is either love or hate.

All of my Petes are fishtails for this reason.

Never saw the need to direct the stream of smoke to the roof of my mouth, but I guess it makes smoking more comfortable for many people or they wouldn't have lasted so long.

I own one Pete, and it's a p-lip, and it's the worst smoking pipe I own. The p-lip just adds to the annoyance I think.

I've also used the magic upside-down pipe fill method now and then. It can be a little messy, though, so often I will just fill by digging into the pouch like you might normally, and then repeatedly tapping the side of the bowl firmly, which settles the 'baccy into the bowl pretty admirably, without compressing it. I just top it of with another sprinkle from the pouch, and then tidy it up with a tamper, or my finger.

I'm really glad for your enthusiasm but if you press your pipe onto tobacco or press tobacco into your pipe, it's simply the same.

I'm sorry I can't share your joy.

I've done both, it's really nothing to be excited about, unless you need a certain excitement about putting pipe tobacco into a pipe.
