At home I usually smoke on the carport or on the lawn mower. Sometimes when doing other outside work. I also smoke when I'm driving by myself or with another smoker (the latter seldom happens). This helps me stay awake when driving, especially when I'm alone. I smoke at work when I'm working outside. I smoke whenever I visit a smoker-friendly establishment, such as JR Cigars or Low Country Pipes (again, seldom). I do wish there was such a place near where I live. I used to go over to Greensboro on Fridays and visit the Pipe and Pint but it wasn't as much fun after they moved so gave that up. I don't think any of these are worth pictures and I haven't looked for a new hosting site since photo bucket changed their hosting policy.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Bermuda is a cool spot for a smoke, but it's a bit breezy. Zippo or Nimrod is required.

Smoking in the backyard and grilling brats with these two yahoos.

Mainly just outside the apartment. Which has a terrible view of another apartment.

I have a lot of places to smoke around the house, but I live alone so it's a trade off with having a pathetic existence. I have a study/pipe room/ library, a table in the garage, a basement room with a desk and chair, but mainly I smoke in the bedroom because that's where the computer and the sliding French door with a screen is.

You know, we might define "pathetic existence" very differently.

I've several places.

The most frequent is the woods behind the house as I take the dog on a short jaunt after work. I'll sometimes sit in the garage, or in the tractor/woodshed on the tractor seat during said dog walks if its windy. I'll sometimes smoke in my home office upstairs while doing some work; in the winter the stack effect will push the smoke right out of an open window. My wife has even not minded if I smoke something good smelling in the house.

My most enjoyable smokes are out in the woods while either hunting or taking a break from firewood cutting.

Sidetrack Tobacco, 523 State Street, Bristol, Va.
Story is that two generations ago there was a great cigar/tobacco shop in the local railroad terminal. When the terminal closed, the shop stayed open and moved downtown. Lot's of baseball memorabilia on the wall. A handwritten thank you letter from President Ford after his visit in 1984 while campaigning for GOP candidates and stocking up on tobacco. A giant piece of furniture moved from the terminal to the smoking lounge located in the back of the store. They said the place is full on Saturdays, especially to hang out and watch the games.

I hunted birds with an 870 Wingmaster for many years.
It was a wonderful gun - one of those guns I traded away for something now long since forgotten, and wishing I hadn't.

Yes. I used a Model 12 for donkey's years, but rights and lefts were rare. Never think I'm knocking the gun, sir. My salute was genuine. It takes a fine shot. I'm not a fine shot.

My dad just bought a boss 870. Really fine wood.

Never thought that for a second.
Just putting in another good word for the 870.

Truly wish I'd kept mine.

I love pumps. I'm just not good enough to keep an eye on the bird and rack another she'll into the chamber. I can't wait to see my father's new one. He spent a ridiculous amount on it and I'm planning on casually moving in on it.

Fun thread i have missed!

Recently I’ve been smoking in the garage/shop most frequently as I am currently.

That changes seasonally and I’ll try to keep in tune with the thread with that progression :)

That's a beautiful pipe 2X7.
Clearly, the work of an artisan. Enjoy it. :chili:

Wing Masters are A+!
I gave mine to my nephew (he's a lawyer, btw.)

I missed this conversation the first time around. Not a Wingmaster, unfortunately. It’s the 870 Express, the poor man’s 870. I have to be good with it as I can’t afford a double. It’s been a rock solid gun, if heavy and a little chunky. I would love to have a lightweight double someday, it would be easier on my arthritis to be sure. I didn’t go out today because my left hand wasn’t up to the stress of working the slide.

That being said, I’ve hunted rabbits, pheasants, Turkey, and had it set up for deer at one point. A more workman like shotgun you won’t find.
