1908 .380 Colt on auction on Gunbroker. I bid about $60 more than I thought it was actually worth. The lucky? bidder got it for $5 more than my max bid. It's nice but not that nice.
He paid more than I was willing to pay for THAT gun, one in nicer condition I'd pay more. Just as well, tomorrow I get an estimate for some concrete work here at Casa De Daisy, Mucho bucks :)

Last night I set my max bid just a little above what I thought it would bring but you can't always count on other bidders to follow good buying practices like researching values. The bidding had stalled quite a bit below what I was wanting to pay. I think the guy that bought it had seen the insane high minimum opening bid in other auctions and bid accordingly. Using that recipe he got it at a steal. NOT.
That setting a minimum amount of money like say $600 opening bid but listing as a "no reserve" auction pisses me off. The reserve is set at $600, jerks won't let me open with a lower bid either.
A "No Reserve" auction for a Colt in Spring Texas started the no reserve auction with a reserve price of $699.99. The gun is ugly so I asked if I could open the bidding at $400, he did not answer my email. The auction ended with no bids placed.
I've bought some weird shit I really did not need because of impulse buying but hey, it was a bargain LOL!
I have a box of pistol magazines I need to get on Ebay pretty soon.
