I picked up a couple bottles at Tippen's today. They said they're getting another barrel in August and Jim will be in to sign bottles.

Bump because...Weller 12 was just added to the list this month. Interesting.
I cannot think of a single intelligent reason to advertise this. Also visited Tippen's and found they charge a nice premium for their bottles. Recently picked up a bottle of ECBP and paid a premium above minimum, even though the store advertised State Min. Claimed only apply the State Min to standard bottles and not the limited releases. Asked why should I buy their standard bottles from them and basically told that's their new policy. State Min is great for knowing what price you should pay but when two-penny Jenny passed the law, there were a number of people who wanted prices to free float.
On what bottles and what kind of premium? Everything I've ever bought there, from the basic bottles to the store picks and limiteds - including the 4R barrel picks, PHC, ECBP, 4R limited - have all been MSRP.Also visited Tippen's and found they charge a nice premium for their bottles. .

That information about Weller 12 was posted on Facebook a couple days ago anyway so the proverbial cat was already out of the proverbial bag.
Was at Tippen's last week, Ritt BiB was $25.99 and the FRSB OBSQ was priced at $66.99. I noticed most of the prices for the standard stuff on the shelves was $1 to $2 above State Min. I am with Will on this one, buy hey, everyone's got their favorite store, no critiques allowed.
And they hey aren't my favorite store...in the spirit of how this thread has turned I don't tell people about my favorite
