New here, but not new to pipe smoking.

Just found this forum.  Thanks for letting me in.

I've been smoking a pipe occasionally eve since making my first corn cobs when I was a teen.  Then I graduated to Missouri Meerschaums which I mostly smoked while fishing.  My only , what I consider real pipe, was an E.A. Carey full bent rustic I bought from way back in the day they'd send one out and if you did not like it you smashed it with a hammer and returned it for no cost including any shipping.

I had only that one for about 40 years until I started buying a few other briars.  I still don't have much of a collection.  I still have a lot to learn.  

I came here hoping to learn.
