I hate Smith & Wesson knives and certain ones wouldn’t allow me to order due to a “Pricing Error.”

But I got nine knives for $38 shipped that will likely go straight to eBay! Hurray!

If anyone snagged that asinine karambit before it sold out...drat YOU!!! That’s the only one I outright wanted.

Well that's a dozen knives on the way. Always good to have a few spares in drawers around the house, cars, toolbox, range bag, camping bag, desk, etc.

I like the way you think.

They also should be good for practicing my sharpening skills. I don't want to gently caress up my $150 Benchmade's angle my first time seriously trying to sharpen a knife.

$3-5 is a fair price for their quality. They are great tackle box knives

Yeah that's what I figured. I picked up 3 of the cheapest ones; they'll be among the other stocking stuffers for my cousins.

I think they'd be losing money on those who order only a few of the cheapest ones, and mainly on shipping.

I'm very upset that Smith and Wesson ridiculous karambit was sold out in the space between being put in my cart and my pressing buy. I also think they were slowly wising up to the pricing being hosed up, because about a third of the knives in my cart said, "Cannot proceed due to pricing error."

If I had a better idea how well Smith and Wesson knives did on Amazon, I'd have bought a poo poo ton more. I think I got nine for less than $40.

If anyone snagged the karambit before I could, please do something cool with it. I was going to make it my new letter opener.

This is my current one and I unironically love this $7 M-Tech.

I'll be surprised if all these knives ship, but if they do then I have cheap knifes to live in basically all my common use bags and coats. At some point I'm sure I'll accidentally try to board an airplane with one and have to toss it.

If someone wants to gamble, a NR seller put a USP9c on Gunbroker with a $480 BiN. It's either estate liquidation, or a scam.
Almost certainly a scam.

After our recent B76 experience I'm gonna say that there's a 99% chance that's a scam.

PayPal for a firearm (and the only payment method at all!) is enough to throw up red flags. And that with a too good to pass up BIN is extremely suspicious. I've seen a couple other scammers (or maybe it's the same guy) with the same MO on completed auctions lately.

Apparently those are "RAL8000" color and as such are "collector's items" that currently go for over $200 on Gunbroker (several active auctions right now, lol). HK Tax is pretty silly.

Semi-serious, semi-pedantic question brought to you by my carb-coma: does a rotary mag maybe kind of count as a drum?

Also: HK45 mags apparently have an MSRP of ~$50.00, vs the $75.00 they used to cost. Huh, how about that.
