This Just In -- market prices rising fast
Went to a local sportsmans/surplus place yesterday for their annual gun auction (floor models, some used, some older models they wanna move, etc). Their "hook" is they (post bidding) give away 3 or 4 of the auctioned guns
All 60 firearms went for OVER their sticker price
(several with models in stock at the counter
). Folks really got caught up in the auction it would seem.
I let a Ruger #1 in .270 get away (stainless, laminate stock)- I bowed out when it hit $850 (went for 950).
They gave away a browning BAR in 30-06 (high bid was $1200)- THAT guy was pumped
