Daily Caller has a piece by American Hunter’s Kyle Wintersteen on avoiding the pitfalls of navigating a round of sporting clays as you enjoy a stogie. While offering helpful hints such as keeping your ‘gar in the 6 o’clock position to clear your field of view and restricting its length to no more than 5″ (lest you singe your support arm), for Wintersteen a cigar is apparently never just a cigar . . .

No, it’s also a fashion statement. So much so that he prefers to coordinate his smoke’s wrapper with his gun’s furniture. “Corojo is another good pairing for Turkish walnut. For English walnut you’ll want a lighter cigar, perhaps a Colorado claro. However, American walnut is rather dark. Go with a maduro.”

No word from Kyle on his choice to chuff while swinging the finely molded composite stock of a Mossy 930 SPX, but we’re sure someone’s rolling just the right smoke for it somewhere. What cigar will you be puffing when you’re lining up your next following pair?

  1. I don’t smoke when i trap shoot….smoke gets in your eyes…next thing you know your doing a dick chenney…picking buckshot out of your neighbors ass….

    • No stogies for me either, but a fine bowl of tobacco enjoyed in a pipe after shooting would be my choice.

  2. Hmmm… For that fancy gun up there? Drew Estate Liga Privada #9.
    Remington 870 – Rocky Patel Edge – Corojo
    Marlin 55 “Goose Gun” – La Flor Dominicana “Digger” maduro
    Mossberg 930 – La Gloria Cubana Serie R #7

  3. I’d like to see more knife reviews. IMO, knives are a very natural and appropriate product that partner with guns (self-defense, hunting, whatever) than some of the products I’ve seen featured.

  4. Current favorites are Padron 1964 Anniversary, Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 Cameroon and La Fleur Dominicanas (still trying to figure out which of these I prefer).

  5. For any firearm related activity, but it particular anything involving shotguns, you gotta go with an Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story. For the obvious reasons.

  6. Harry Reid says a guy told him cigars kill thousands of people a year.

    President Obama says we need some soul-searching about cigars.

    DOJ’s Holder says he only heard recently about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms allowing illegally bought Havana’s to cross the border.

  7. Obviously a lip of grizz wintergreen or a marbolro light will be adorning the mouth of the 930 user, and most definitely the maverick 88 shooter as well, they understand that getting the job done doesnt take a lot of money, but it should take duct tape
