    5 Vegas Series A Archetype and S&W 1911

    $500 is a steal for this gun. It's very very well made. Superior in my mind to a kimber, any series 80 colt, para-ord, and the lower and mid end Springfields. I don't buy ammo anymore, it's too expensive for me, so I reload it. My reloading vids, if anyone is interested...

    When do you restrict your smoking?

    I often don't smoke because there is often no convenient place or time for me to smoke. I can't smoke in the house, and being cold outside takes away any enjoyment for me, so I'd rather stay in and warm with no cigar than freeze and shivver with one. Also, between feeding the kids, putting...

    Is it ok to smoke stogies in your house?

    When I had my own "room" I could smoke in there, I just made sure the ventilation was decent. Now my "room" is above the garage, far away from the house (but heated) so I smoke in here. When we remodel the house, this will probably go away, so I'll have an office in the home again, and will be...

    Johnston - 3 Guys Cigars

    3 Guys Cigars 1465 Atwood Ave Johnston RI (401) 369-7447 I found this place while traveling for business and stopped in. I went in looking for Olivas, just by chance because I had found not much luck locally. Turns out they were the only supplier in New England for a few months before...

    Are You a Member of Other Online Cigar "Communities"?

    When I was first looking for cigar information a couple of months ago, I googled "cigar forums". CS was not first on the list, so I linked to four or five other forums, read them all, went back and forth looking at the culture, activity, design, etc. CS was the most active by far ( I like...

    They do burn funny, that's for sure (mine are newish too, and mostly have never left their box) but at least they are easy to relight. ;) I had another one on another drive this morning, and I had read that the wrapper has a really salty taste to it, which I haven't noticed because I almost...

    RP Signature: Fantastically Subtle

    Great review, love the descriptions! I got a lot of nutmegey, cinnamoney tastes also, not actual tastes, but hints of tastes. Very tantalizing. :)

    Really? I thought I had looked it up correctly, once, when I was curious as to what the heck "toothy" meant. Thought it referenced the presence of bumps.... guess I'll have to look it up again. :) Thanks for the heads-up though!
