Any recommendations where I can shop? I don't feel like walking into one of those "smoke" head shops.

The gas station at hwy 6 and 105 in Navasota has a pretty good selection in their humidor.

Seriously. Not a BS reply.

Not being cute, but which one? Rattlers Exxon in 105W or the Hi-Ho Shell on 105E?

I regularly go to Stripes on 105E when passing through town, so I know that's not it.

I wound up ordering from Iwan Ries online last night because no one in CS has anything worth a damn. The last time I went to Cavalier looking for pipe tobacco, they were rude as hell (like always, I guess), so they're out.

Cavalier Cigars on University in CS. In the old Fox and Hound shopping center.

Cavalier always says they are "about to receive a shipment" but their stock is always depleted. You're better bet is to go to either Specs location or just order online from Cigars International. I can see how the poster above said they are rude. I wouldn't say they are rude, rather disinterested.

Disinterested is a better word. I quit going because every time I'd go in, they had next to nothing. I asked about it one time and the older guy behind the counter acted like I was putting him out by asking.

If your focus is pipes, you options locally are zero to nil. Back in ancient times, us olds had numerous places - Colson's Corner (which later became Sarita's (then Sam's) Smoke Shop, and the Tinder Box).

If you're looking for anything resembling an old-time smoke shop, you'll need to go down to either The Woodlands or Houston.

If you don't want to travel, the best bet would be to go online. Two of the bigger retailers are:

Thank you all for the information.

I'm going to SPECs this weekend and if I'm not happy I'll order online.

The spec's in Culpepper is the best humidor in town for cigars.

His name is Roger and that's a common impression of him. Its rather odd because most other cigar shops I've been to around the state have been incredibly helpful and welcoming.
