[00015] As discussed above, embodiments of the present disclosure relate to smoking accessories and more particularly to a straight shooter lighter system as used to improve the convenient use of lighters and pipes.

[00016] Generally, the present invention provides users with a lighter with an integrated smoking pipe, keeping both tools in a single, easy-to-find location. The device allows users to smoke tobacco and other flammable substances without the need to buy rolling papers or oversized pipes. It includes an integrated bat- style pipe with a chamber for storing the pipe on one side of the lighter. It offers a way for users to detach the pipe from the rest of the lighter to smoke and then reattached to make it back into one piece.

[00017] The present invention effectively eliminates the worry of losing substance flavor while smoking due to rolling papers and other inefficient smoking tools. The STRAIGHT SHOOTER LIGHTER™ is a lighter with an integrated bat-style pipe. There may be (at least) two models (versions/embodiments) for the lighter. The first model has a compartment for lighter fluid and a second for the pipe. The pipe can be removed by detaching it from pressure clasps and reattached it with minimal force. Users can light and smoke tobacco and other substances with one convenient tool. The second model includes a compartment for lighter fluid and a second compartment in which the pipe is stored. The pipe can be removed (via a method of use) by sliding open a bottom cap when the user wishes to smoke. Straight Shooter Lighter can be constructed using glass, metal, and other suitable materials (other fire-resistant materials). The lighters may be available in various sizes in order to accommodate all user needs and preferences. Further, each lighter may be available in various colors, styles, and designs. [00018] Referring now more specifically to the drawings by numerals of reference, there is shown in FIGS. 1-5, various views of a straight shooter lighter system 100. FIG. 1 shows a straight shooter lighter system 100 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. As illustrated, the straight shooter lighter system 100 may comprise a lighter 110 including a spark wheel 112, a flame opening 114, an actuator 116, a housing 120 including a storage compartment 122 and a lighter fluid storage chamber 130, and a straight shooter pipe 140.

[00019] The lighter 110 includes the spark wheel 112, the flame opening 114, the actuator 116, and the housing 120 in functional combination. The housing 120 includes the lighter fluid storage chamber 130 and the storage compartment 122. The storage compartment 122 is configured to house the straight shooter pipe 140 for removeable use. The lighter fluid storage chamber 130 stores lighter fluid or other suitable flammable equivalent. The straight shooter pipe 140 is configured to host a smoking substance for smoking. The lighter 110 is configured to produce a flame for combustion of the smoking substance to be smoked and for inhalation through the straight shooter pipe 140. The straight shooter pipe 140 includes a first-open-end 142 end for contacting a user’s mouth for smoking and a second-open-end 144 for inserting the smoking substance. The straight shooter pipe 140 comprises a fire resistant material such as glass, metal, and other suitable materials.

[00020] FIG. 2 shows a perspective view of the straight shooter lighter system 100 of FIG. 1, according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.
