I want to say four so I will go with two and most likely end up with zero.

I have the desire, the PAD as it were, but I am fighting it so maybe 2 or 3. But I am likely to get rid of a couple so it might just even out.

I may purchase 2 or 3. But I have two that I'm already sending out for repairs.

I shouldn't buy any, but really, what kind of piper would I be with that kind of thinking.

The minimum will be two: the POY and a Christmas pipe. As long as 7formy1911 behaves himself and doesn't taunt me I might just get away with only those.
I did not account for the possibility of finding my white whale. Let's change the minimum to three.

1, at most.

Really liked the look of the 4th Generation pipes—a bit out of the price range, but I found one for 50% off and bought it—under $100 including shipping; arrived today. It’s a bit heavy, but I generally hold instead of clench so I’m not too concerned about it. Impressed by the initial quality—pouch is a decent leather too. Looking forward to trying it out.

I've got some cash burning a hole in my pocket, and this little Rattray's Beltane's Fire rhodesian is looking mighty fine right now. Haven't pulled the trigger yet. Still debating...

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Could be 1 +/- 1
Not even end of January and I'm on the chart with 1.

That puts me in the realm of 2 +/- 1 with a change in the estimate.

I've put it in my cart, and deleted it twice now. This exceeds the most I've ever spent on a pipe ($130). Maybe it seems kinda gimmicky, but I like the 3 stems that it ships with - kinda a neat way to dress it up differently. I've found that my two favorite shapes are a lovat and a rhodesian, so this tickles that itch.

Dang... I'm so indecisive.

Definitely Ulmer-style. If genuine Ulmer, very valuable pipe.
