Gun broker blues....
« on: January 16, 2022, 11:42:21 PM »
I found a rifle I wanted. It was at 1300 for 6 days with me being the top bid... in the last 2 hours it has gone to 1825... damn

I know I can afford it, but its too much. Oh well.

Ps yes, it takes lots of strength  of will not to go over the top. ;D

I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

Six days are left.  If it goes for $1,825 you are going to wish you bid $1,850.03...or something thereabouts. 

I usually bid the things on up.  If the guy is a nimrod and really wants it he'll outbid you again in a hurry and a more patient experienced guy will bid up later on.

Some of the ones I've bid have ended up being a gun shop so they hop out at a relatively low price.  Then there are the real collectors who wait until the last minute and blow everyone away. 

I was trying to get a 17 Fireball for a while and there were a couple of guys who always seemed to beat me out.  So a couple of podunk Fireballs came out and I bid right up to where they bought before and the bit and bid high.  To my good fortune a nice Fireball came out and I had them bidding high on 2 or 3 others plus I knew their exit point or buying limits.  Hammer down and got a good one.

Get this thing.  It looks good.

The .357 mag B-92's are fairly rare, Browning made a lot more .44 mags than .357, I would say grab it at $1850.00 if you can,You most likely won't find another on as clean as that one.

Yup.  Remember that when you look at last year's prices we have 12-15% inflation right now.  The prices are not going to go back down to where they were....yesterday has come and gone.  In the last year everyone's dollar they had in the bank can now only buy about 80 cents worth....which is how governments with fiat currency always pay for their excessive spending.

You guys are not helping my addiction.
.

I will wait a bit and see if it goes up, it looks like it was a max bid and it keeps getting upped.  So no telling what the cap is.  My guess is 2k, but I have been wrong before.

32 hours left and $1,825 current bid.  I think you oughta' throw $2253.07 on it and see what happens.

But if you really, really want it go with 2,553.07.

Don't bother with the asinine "Gaming" the auction.

Bid what you're willing to pay and if your financial dick is big enough , you win.

Doesn't Gun Broker have the bid feature where you put in your highest bid, and it only applies it in increments needed to either be highest/win, or run others up until you max out?
