Top 3 are Petes JohnnyMcPiperson used to own and apparently a couple went to ID.

Top to bottom:
1. Peterson Shannon 999
2. Peterson Donegal Rocky 264
3. Peterson St. Patrick's Day 2010 106
4. DR Ardor Urano

ID gets first dibs on the Pete's, I'll update when he gives his answer!
In case he doesn't come back for awhile, I'm taking the top two. So of the Petersons, the 2010 St. Patrick's Day 106 is still available.[/quote]

Yeah, never liked that one, but the one you have looks much better with that fancy band.

I like the looks of that one a lot--guess it wasn't a smoker.

Couldn't help but notice the tin of Grousemoor. I love the tin art, but have never tried it because of the very mixed reviews it seems to get. I guess I should just buy a tin and see what I think. But what do you think of it?

Yup me too on the pipe...that is a beauty! As to the Grousemoor I have a tin...but have never tried it either...saving it for a smoke after the first blue grouse hunt of the year....about 3 weeks out
Yup, season opens in a couple of weeks.
Smoke one for me, BH.
Heck, shoot a couple of duskys for me too!
(Damn taxonomists keep changing the names on us.)

I won't be hunting this fall.
Nursing an injury, and my best hunting buddy passed away last month.

More sad for my dogs than anything else.
They keep giving me dirty looks.

I even believe there's tobacco in that Grousemoor tin.

Pay attention to Coco...
And the J-B already said the tin is empty.

Do you believe that Rusty exists?
No.

Thank you! It really smokes well and feels great while smoking. The stem is very comfortable and it's one of my "sit down 'n relax" type of pipes.

Very nice.

Why doesn't calvinistanglican post more often? He posts sane, pleasant things about pipes and pipe tobacco. That, and he's a Calvinist Anglican.

The rest of you need to be more like calvinistanglican.

That might prove very difficult for me. I suppose I could at least post sane, pleasant things about pipes and pipe tobacco. God knows I've tried, but people aren't that interested around these parts. It's guns and politics, doncha know, you bet.
