    Ok I need help understanding gunbroker.com. I know this might sound like a stupid question but follow me out. I listed an auction for .01 right. I also at the same time listed a buy it now auction for 200 same product same discription. My .01 auction is over $260 ending soon, with my $200 buy it now auction still up. Why are people so stupid. Also there are 10 other buy it now around $175. People must get so hyped up bidding. I dont know any imput..... Not complaining Im making extra money I just dont get it :pound:

    Hard to say, but maybe the way people see it on their search. Did you post the item at a different time interval? What they do is look at the last 24 hours sometimes not looking at what is going a few days back. Not sure, but seems like they bid on the first item they see without searching further.

    don't worry - they are bidding for the govt - trying to get every single gun item regardless of the cost... after all you are paying for it...
