Actually it was part of some recon before I sent one out and, part of my experience in doing so [emoji4] I may live in Florida sir but, I'm not much of a fisherman [emoji41]

UBC03 The mods do a pretty fair job keeping the non contributing, more or less parasitic people at bay. If guys start fishing for bombs, which happens, they're usually dealt with quickly and harshly by members and mods.

You're right this is a great group of people. Always willing to help in any way and generous to a fault. Feel free to ask anything we're here.

poppajon75 I've always had the pay it forward kind of attitude. I guess I'm just really impressed how everyone's so willing to help others find what they're looking for on this forum. Helps restore a little faith in humanity.
Asfar as participating in auctions and what not I'll be sure to ask for advice and learn a little more before I jump in [emoji3]

When I send a new guy smokes. I don't think about the price. I want him to experience what it's like to smoke a cigar that's been resting for 3+ years. Since they haven't even been smoking that long, it's doubtful they've had that experience before.

It's about cigar karma. Help somebody else out and maybe your bid will hold up on the devil site. Or maybe it won't, when your begging for someone to outbid you on at least a few of the 8 bids you have.

Don't feel pressure to participate in them. Hang around gain some knowledge, get to know some people. It'll come naturally. Usually when your ever expanding collection gets noticed by the wife and it's time to get rid of some before the "where did all these come from" interrogations start.
I am a FIRM believer in cigar karma. sent out 6 bombs on before new member sign on for saint and sinners and got in on the day of the mess!! As stated cigar bombs dont have to be over the to with all high end cigars. i know personally its nice to just receive something new or something in a size i wouldn't normally smoke or even just simple sticks to take me back to the basics its all about the thought not the cigars!!

I donate a lot of time for veterans causes locally and, I like the idea of doing the same here with fellows of similar interest.

Sometimes the mods gotta break out the cattle prods to get us back in line. But we get there. [emoji106]

As per USPS regulations described here: 344 Flammable Solids (Hazard Class 4)


Cigars are not flammable ( unless you soak them in gasoline )

You should tell her, isn't the box flammable! On second thought you should probably not sass her lol.
