    Trolling For Suckers.....

    These gun auction sites are a joke. I've never seen a decent deal (I admit I don't look often) on any of these auctions. I've heard others say they have but I haven't.
    On "gunbroker" they were selling a S & W MP 9mm for $699.00 (Buy Now for $700.00) + $25.00 shipping plus FFL at aproximately $20.00 (probably more like $25.00 to $30.00) and a additional fee of 3% if you use a credit card. That's $744.00 for a MP with Night Sights. If you add 3% to use a credit card it would come to $764.97. What a deal!!!!
    I bought my MP40 at a gun show for $443.77 out the door, including sales tax (.0825%) with out night sights. Do night sights cost $300.00?

    I would avoid gun broker. Use someone like CDNN if you MUST buy a gun on-line.

    These things seem to be popping up all over the place. GunsAmerica is another one. I see a lot of dealers trying to get rid of their stock on them.

    I like to look at Guns America sometimes to get an idea what the avg price of a particular gun should be - if my gun store doesn't have that particular gun in stock, or if I can't get to my gun store and something runs thru my head and I get curious. That's about all...

    GunBroker is good if you're looking for something not commonly available in your area. I've bought a couple guns through GunBroker; maybe I didn't get the best prices, but the prices weren't bad. I was able to get some guns I couldn't find around here in several years of looking. You have to check up on the dealers before buying.

    Well, just like in real life, you have to learn discretion... don't bid on the first thing you see... chances are there will be another one just like it for less.

    Auction Arms and Gun Broker both have alot of over-priced items (Just like eBay... and many Gun Shows as well), you just have to look around a bit more, or more often... I rarely "bid" on an item, but do look for "buy-it-now" bargains (Like my, $69 with free shipping, Ruger 10/22).

    Of course, having a local dealer who doesn't charge for transfers helps as well!

    I've bought two rifles from Gunbroker and I was not disappointed. I've also purchased ammo & accessories, again, not disappointed. What gunbroker does have is the ultimate selection. The prices vary a lot and one can't find the deals that they could three or four years ago. Seems a lot of commercial vendors have taken over the site and do their sales through gunbroker. The individual sellers are there, but one has to really dig for them.

    I go there to look around some times, but I would never buy a gun off the web from any outfit. I got to see it, and inspect it. To many times I read that the gun was 95% good only to fine out it was about 80% good. What looks good to one person maynot to another. I look but not for me.
