I have come to expect some poor spelling and grammar from the fine folks to post auction at gunbroker. Sometimes though, I read something that goes a little beyond just poor spelling.

drat me, but I want a Finnwolf.

Anyone in the market for a butchered Webley-Fosbery?

I'm thinking about just writing something completely nonsensical with a conservative slant and seeing what he gets out of it.

"Oh fine sir your protection of the Thirteenth Amendable has never quite been as just with your affidavit. As Thomas Benjamin Jefferson always said one must first then twice look upon a woman to know freedom is a gun being used against the lowmen of the countryside. To think Bill Clinton and Hillary Camptown Clinton nearly pushed through a new amendment requiring a signed affidavit at a gunshow to show intent to purchase a gunnery license!"

They're really good. Basically the author is just re-telling his father's story via the medium of a graphic novel.

Some of the race choices are actually kind of funny as well. Gypsies = moths and so on.

In the same vein the Persepolis graphic novels do well to help illustrate the Iran/Iraq conflict.

Dude, the entire gun was rebuilt by the factory. It's like getting a brand new gun!



Judging by the fouling on the cylinder...that looks exactly like the Charter Arms Undercover I ditched when it came back from the factory still hosed.

It went to the factory because it transformed from a revolver to "Throwin' Brick" within its first five rounds.

I bought a new Charter Arms 38. Undercover (five shots - hammer - completely awful) and took it out to stretch it's legs. First five rounds the cylinder completely locks up. Couldn't get it open with a screwdriver. There was also huge amounts of fouling around where my right thumb rested.

I sent it to them and got it "Completely Refurbished." I went to the range and the third shot sheared something backwards, into my forehead. It didn't really bleed but it stung like a mother.

I unloaded it, went upstairs, and sold it for $100 less than I bought it for.

Gun shops are famous for being reasonable, business savvy, and going to great lengths to not piss off potential customers.

A store I went to was covered in these 3% signs.

I walked into a "gold" shop in Frankfort, Kentucky once with a silver dollar to sell - worth about 15 bucks in silver, minimum. This was two days after all my ID's and poo poo got stolen. I needed the cash for enough gas to finish my day NOT sleeping in my car.

I dress like Henry Rollins or a complete dandy. Today was a dandy day, which normally helps if I have to sell something.

I walk into this shop with that has two old guys sitting in the back. It was listed as a Goldsmith. I figured I'd be in and out in five minutes.

The younger old guy immediately says, "Are you a G man?" and refuses to tell me his name. He then tells me I look like a city boy and tells me, "Only people mixed up in BAD business get a gun in their face!"

He then only gives me ten dollars. I needed it for gas. But a goldsmith bought my silver without paying spot, which is considered borderline illegal.

As I was leaving he told me they don't like my type. I'm pretty sure he was implying I was gay. That happens a lot.

I don't know what the actual law is but I thought it was pretty much a given that if you walk into one of those WE BUY GOLD stores you will get massively ripped off. The whole business model is based on jewelry from obvious burglars and the desperate elderly.

Edit: although probably not as badly as if you just mail it off to one of those services that promise they'll send back a check for fair market value

My family and I deal in precious metals. Some of those "WE BUY GOLD" places are good jewellery stores with lovely signs. Some of them are borderline criminal. But offering below spot is considered the absolute lowest of the low an possibly illegal. It's like giving less than a dollar of change for a buck.

Those places make their money on offering "melt" value for jewellery that they then turn around and sell as is for a profit.

Wonder if eBay will follow suit eventually.

The thing I can't get over with eBay is how the phone app works better than their website. The website literally costs me money every month through listing stuff incorrectly, publishing incorrect drafts, searches that don't work, etc.

Edit : Motherfucker I compliment your mobile app and then spend thirty minutes dealing with this. My auctions average four to six pictures. See a problem?

Well, I forgot that my email address is my legal name, so I took down that picture.

The six pictures I took for a draft last night multiplied to 170.

I message the person directly and ask them to set it to a buy it now at some price we agree on, or just have them take the auction down and sell directly to me.

I've never been able to successfully snipe anything really.

Word to the wise - This is technically against Ebays TOS and can get your account locked. I sell a lot of collectible toys on my store, and also some silver, and the amount of people with a sob story about "trying to get some silver for their kid (not a joke - this happened) and I need to take down the auction IMMEDIATELY so I can accept their lowball offer" is jaw dropping. I've started reporting most people that hit me with anything more than an offer.

This is completely acceptable some places, but not good ole' Ebay.

Also, sniping software on a Mac - I use... :bursts into laughter:
