Cool New to Ryo (Need Help)

Hi all,
I recently got into RYO I have decided I want to start out with a top-o-matic and rizla ff tubes. The only thing left is tobacco, I am a rothmans smoker (English cigarettes) I want something similar to those but I don't really know what to get, mind you on the American cigarette brand side, I like Paul mall, and camel. I haven't really sorted through American pipe/dual purpose tobacco other than for my pipe, so any help is appreciated.

Default tobacco paradise?

Welcome to the forum lawyer66

Give us a hint on what tobaccos are available for you. Can you order online from the US vendors? Any crazy tax laws?

Yeah of course, not all, but some like bnbtobacco (dont really wanna though cause they wanted to charge me 126.00 shipping for an order valued at 70 bucks!). There are a few other sites available like smokingpipes which sells pipe tobacco and what not. I mean I can buy just about any blend you guys can. feel free to shoot, because I can also use the stores under internationalcheckout.com

Yeah I do, I have a friend in the states who can collect any order I make so I have access to just about every tobacco that you all do. Now, with that said, I want to use a central website for my order. Currently, I'm using bnbtobacco as I don't know anywhere else at the moment that has all the things I need for my start up kit. If you know of any other stores that offer decent prices and have everything I would need please feel free to share.

I feel as though my kit should have the following:
1) Tubes (leaning towards beretta)
2)Tobacco (Undecided, but contemplating ps amsterdam or danish, or ohm natural)
3) Injector (Top-O-Matic)
4) Some kind of hard case, but there are soo many to choose from

Also, as it relates to tobacco, how do I keep a large parcel of tobacco fresh. I mean I'm not gonna buy 20lbs until I know what I like, but still wont tobacco grow mold or spoil if not kept properly?

Default one stop starter package

Suggest you try from rollyourown.com
injector - TOM old version
tobaccos, all three - 1839 FF, NCS 3C, and PS Amsterdam
tubes, all three - Twister, Ramback, and Golden Harvest
case - whatever, read the case thread for ideas

Looking back, I wish this is how I started.

Does anyone know how much cigarettes will a 1 pound bag of tobacco make?

Common question, one that I had asked myself. Short answer: about 450-500 cigarettes.

By the way, Tobacco General currently has Beretta tubes on sale.
