Aren't you guys glad I've passed my Rock Island Auction phase?

If you want, I can post some of the more enticing entries again.   Sorry no Browning 92s up in the next auction.

What makes you think that is a phase?

Dadgummit TAB.  You need a butt whipping for even mentioning Gunbroker.  I made a bid for this:  https://www.gunbroker.com/Item/922218980

The very best trigger I have is on a CZ 550 FS in 270.  They don't make these things anymore...just like the Winchester 9422 series.  The price has gone up...getting this one for under $1,200 would be really good.  And...obviously it's a better build than a 9422.

To make things worse....there is this to bid as well:  https://www.gunbroker.com/item/917653728

Well...retirement money in the bank is losing 15% a year to inflation right now....I gotta look at this as an investment.

Dadgum you TAB....

Well, once I bid $1,200 the other high bidder panicked and hit the buy it now for $1,500.  The .308 CZ 550 FS's come around every now and then so my thought is this guy is out of the way now no big.  There should be another in a week or so.  His last purchase was a CZ 427 in 222...so he's a CZ guy.  Good for him.

Now...the 550 FS in 30-06 is a lot more rare than in 308.  I'm going to have to think about that one tonight....

Alf....you should broadcast that stuff again.  We need to goad TAB into a really high dollar item.  There is nothing quite like dropping $10k or so on a gun.

I didn't really see  anything that jumped out at me on that auction.   Some cool stuff, but nothing I have an intrest in.

Dang.  I got a RIA Friday.  The Meriva model pump shotgun (870 clone) that's chrome.  It came with an 18-1/2" slug barrel plus an additional barrel with chokes.  Also a pistol grip but like heck I ain't a gonna use that.  $285 from my drug store for a $350 list gun.
