Let's Get This Started

What's going on guys? I'm Brandon from NW Arkansas and I've been smoking cigars for about 2 years now. I've learned a lot of hard lessons in cigars along the way as we do not really have a cigar shop here so there was no one to ask questions to so I turned to YouTube. Just now realized this place exists and I can't wait to get to know people here.

Re: Let's Get This Started

Thanks guys, I appreciate that!

Quick question: what is this "bomb" thing? I tried searching but I just see where others received bombings (I guess that's how you put it).

acts of generosity from one member to another, giving cigars or other things as a gift, usually unexpected, not sure where or when the term bomb started, just basically a surprise gift of cigars

Re: Let's Get This Started

It's a surpise gift of cigars, go sign up for the noobie trade (since youve been smoking a while i assume you have a few cigars you can trade) and an "experienced puffer" will receive the trade, consider them a sample of your taste in cigars and bomb you back with a wider assortment of stuff you probably havent tried yet! It's awesome and a good way to get your first few trades in!

Bombs will explain themselves in due time, just watch out for Shuckins.

Re: Let's Get This Started

Thanks for the answer to my question. Sounds interesting.

I've already learned quite a bit and got some new ideas to try out. One last question though, what is this ring Gage number in my profile? I am WAY behind a lot of people!

Re: Let's Get This Started

Welcome Brandon!

You will find plenty of info here. If you arent already purchasing online, you might search here for online vendors because of the tax being so high in AR.

Ring gage is more or less of an acknowledgement to someone, you can bump someone if they make you laugh, if they do a good deed or anything you want to give them RG for. To be honest though, I wouldnt pay it too much attention. You will catch onto it as you go.

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night. - Unknown
