They usually have Captain Black White and maybe Smokers Pride behind the counter. I’ll look next time.

Ha, im here in the Republic of New Yorkistan!
The ONLY tobacco shops are on the Indian reservations.
Otherwise, there is a huge tax.
We need to be looked over you know.
But, we can change our sex before we are old enough to drive, so there's that. :(
Not sure of trhe current tobacco tax, but I just saw a $1 tax hike per pack of cigarettes.... $5.35 tax now. Cigarettes are $12.
The last time I tried ordering from Pipes and Cigars was insane.
This was like 2016.
My order came to $53.45.
Because I have a NY address, the total was $96 and some change.
I obviously did not make the order.
But, on the reservation 30 miles away, smokes are $3 and tins of name brand pipe tobaccos are $8-$12.
Their roll your own cig tobacco is $5 per pound!
The six ounce bags of Smokers Pride is $8.

It was a special duty I applied for and got accepted. I will
be working at the Nuclear Missle Facilities.

I am really excited to get back to the cold. And I mean COLD.

The best part is the gig is only 3-4 years and then I get to move again.

Now I have 3 months to sell my house :facepalm:
Wishing you the best of luck in the sale , and on the new gig. Thats awesome!! Congrats abe!

But at least ammunition is affordable, right.
