    Well its been a little while since I've posted some new pipes. I've been busy with work, but I still manage to work on my pipes in concentrated jaunts of effort. Here are the latest 3. A few experiments in materials (bullet and shotgun casings) and design elements. I'm thinking I'm going to enter the upcoming Kansas City Pipe Show contest. There's no way I'll win against Rad Davis and the others, but hey, its something to challenge me and push me to get better.

    As always, I welcome your input, ideas, advice.

    R14 Chaplain Corps Pipe: (To protect the freedom of religious practice for Soldiers of all Faiths, Nurture the Living, Care for the Wounded, Honor the Dead)

    7.62x54R shank (shot with my 1942 Mosin Nagant) with matching 3030 Winchester Tamper (shot with my wife's 1970s Winchester 3030)

    --

    R15 20ga Natural Billiard - with matching .38 S&W Tamper (shot with my 102 year old 1910 Iver Johnson Top-Break Model 3 Revolver)

    --

    R16 Goldfish Churchwarden - my take on the blowfish pipe design: the Goldfish (not shot with any firearm, but sure to be found near some tasty goldfish crackers)

    I like them all. I like how you used the spent shells. And the shape of R15 is really cool.

    Yep, r15 is the bomb .

    Looking mighty fine Josh.
    I think you're improving.

    I like then all but if I had to pick I'd say the R14, for the ideal and sentiment as much as the look. Nice job on all of them.

    Told you Best of luck, but it's not about that! The pipes are now more usable artwork now than ever before. Not about winning, but people seeing your work.

    All very nicely done - but I love the whimsical shape of the "Goldfish".

    Great work as usual, Josh. I really love how you used the shotgun shell on that billiard!
