When I was a youngster, we could play 10 cent games at the county fair and win a pack of Chesterfields or Pall Malls! Non filter too! And you got free matches!When I was a boy, Chesterfields were 19 cents a pack. Dad would send us to the store with 20 cents. And we got to keep that penny!
You make a good point. It is not what they sell for, but rather what they are bought for that matters.......Unfortunety.... some people are paying these inflated prices which is why sellers are still trying to get these crazy prices. While I wont be paying these prices, I also have been keepimg track of these price gouger sellers and defintely wont be doing business wit them in the future.
I think it's a scam. I have heard that someone will keep on bidding to get the price higher then stop. Don't know if its true but I have heard of this happening. Only a fool would pay that much. I wouldn't buy anything from GB. People have gotten scammed through GB. CAVEAT EMPTOR.So I go on gun broker to bid on a nice '77 vintage 336 in 30-30 and offer 700.00 which I think is a reasonable price and keep getting out bid and the gun finally sells for $ 1,250.00 !!! Which I think is totally nuts. Is this the market today? Might be time to find a new hobby. Any thoughts? Is this what I should expect to pay for a standard 336 ?
Yeah, thats's the way online auctions work. Waiting until the end does nothing. eBay figured that out two decades ago.How about this -- bid the max you're willing to spend on the gun, forget it until the auction ends. You win or you don't, but you never get ripped off....
