I've always was told not to smoke out of brass or copper. I'm not sure why, but it has never steered me wrong.

Brass smells like shit after it's been handled for a while.

around here if you buy a pipe from a headshop they'll throw in 1/2dozen screens... your choice steel or brass.

You learn quick not to buy brass... it tastes nasty but is fine to smoke from.

(Forgive me if I'm bumping this thread. I have information to share.)

Brass is already used in plenty of tobacco pipes. However, if you're talking about spent cartridges, you might want to clean them of lead residue first. This shouldn't be too big of a problem if the cartridges came with non-corrosive primers (ie; not lead), but it's still a good precaution to take anyways.

You'll need a bottle of 5% distilled vinegar, a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide, and some rubber gloves, because the solution irritates the skin. Mix the vinegar and H2O2 as a 2/1 volume-ratio mixture (twice as much vinegar as H2O2) and thoroughly rinse and scrub the insides and outsides of the cartridges for about 10-15 minutes. This should clean out any and all lead from the materials.

I hope this is found useful to anyone interested.

He never said if it was a used casing or not.  It might have been clean, unprimed brass.

He didn't mention any design either.  I hope he was just using a handgun casing as a bowl or something.
