Auction for me are mostly for entertainment! I rarely bid simply because bidding raises
the pricing beyond reality! dumb in lots of cases!

Life it tough . . . . especially when you (the bidder) are stupid.
For the Silver, he only paid about $900 more than today's price.

Let's see . . . . At $150/brick, I have several in the Winchester Wood boxes
that I would be happy to sell.
I got 20,000 rds. of 22lr I would sell at $150.00 a brick..

I sold a bunch of guns and gun items in the last 3 months. I was very very happy with the results. For the past 45 years when I sold a gun I Always ended up getting about 80% of what I paid for it.In the last 3 months I received 125% on what I paid for them and this was after I paid my 15% commissions on guns that sold for more than $750.00. I just laughed. Now is the time to thin gun heard if you ever thought about it. MD

Prices have (obviously) been up for a while. I retired a few years back, and ended up 'thinning the herd' during the Wuhanic Plague and election aftermath. Prices were high enough, that I was able to sell most of my guns & ammo to a local FFL and still get my money out if 'em. Thought about selling on GunBroker, but the non-paying bidders have made selling anything there a gigantic pain in the backside.

Oh, by the way, this is what I bought. The Security Six had Pachmayr Presentation grips on it so I took them off and put this set on (made by Mustang) that I had in my grips box.
