    As I am looking at the auctions, I can't see when they end. Am I just looking past it?

    Its on the front page:

    Next auction February 19, 20, 21, & 22, 2015

    I put in some low ball bids on a few things. I dont expect to get anything since I'm not paying for anything at real cost with a 17% fee. minimum bid is 25% of their "low" estimate

    I saw those dates but didn't know if there was a way to find out which day each specific auction was going to be. Thanks.

    Will they accept a C&R and ship direct for eligible items?

    Their FAQ just says "Firearms manufactured after 1898 must be shipped to a premise with the proper license." not that helpful

    I get their B&W catalog, but the online auction info is also pretty good. They do get some great guns for sale, but I have never bid "enough" to win one. 17% is actually lower than many other online firearm auctions. Many charge 20+% and seem to get plenty of bidders
    I just bid what I am willing to pay with the 17% and estimated shipping figured in.
