there is a fool born every minute especially when the same rifle can be bought on Gunbroker and the Marketplace for half what the auction is

That bidder seems to have gone after a number of high dollar auction items.

Yes, and we appreciate his generosity to the CMP. Remember the money we take in from the sales of rifles funds our programs.

Thanks for the reminder that auction prices do not always reflect the straight-up "value" of an item. People often participate in auctions that benefit organizations and pay above "fair market value" because (1) an item is rare, and (2) the money goes to an excellent cause.
