Well, to start with, posting live auctions has not been a good thing around here as far as I'm concerned.
Other people may be watching this item in hopes that the rest of the world won't find it.

As for the gun, it's a 4 inch bright stainless limited run with Blue appointments. Kinda like the limited run Combat Cobra made for Lew Horton.

Mentioning /Posting live auction debate

I have read some feedback on the site here regarding opinions on mentioning auctions ---I thought that most feel we were only helping each other,educating one another ,etc... /while others feel that it draws more attention and perhaps draws bids ----OK -I am newer then most and as such just won't bother again ----BUT- someone more auction politically savy maybe could post a poll and do it the democratic way and finally end the issue -------------Having said that ,I will not bother again .

Re: Mentioning /Posting live auction debate

Yo, I'm not wrist slapping, nor am I wanting to test the water with a poll.
I'm just posting that to give you a heads up on the situation.

FYI: The Question could have been asked with-out posting an auction, such as.... Does anyone have any info reguarding the Colt Custom Cobra model ? It's a polished stainless revolver with blue appointments.
Simple, to the point, and no harm, no foul.
We are happy to answer questions at any level, but tactics can be very meaningful.
Remember, other people watch & read these boards that may not be as savy.
Someday you may come across a smokin' deal on one of the auction sites that nobody else may find. Something that may have no reserve and a low starting price. You may hawk that auction until the end and come to find out one other person found it and posted here about this hot deal and you may end up losing out on it, or paying a couple hundred more for it. Until that happens, you see no harm in it. Once it does happen, you wanna slap the SOB. Especially when that buyer puts it up for sale on the same site for more money. I hope you understand.

Re: Mentioning /Posting live auction debate

I for one appreciate the heads up.

I did not know that particular model existed. At that price, I fail to believe your announcement will start a huge bidding frenzy.

In two days, I would have found it anyway.

Most of the savvy auction watchers, that bid on guns that sell for over a grand know where they are, and I find that a hundred, or two one way or another is not going to keep somone that really wants the gun from taking it off me.

I also do not want to start an argument again over announcing auctions on the forums.

With the infamous .41 Python going for $3500 maybe you should start to believe. Being that this revolver is a limited custom edition the price could soar. There are a lot of people with more money than sense.

I read the rules when I joined this forum and I just read them again. There is no rule that says you can't post an auction link. If you were trying to sell this gun then technically it should be in the classified section. Since you were just using the link for a reference I'd say it was perfectly within the rules.

BTW
I'm still on the lookout for that 3" Python.

Re: Mentioning /Posting live auction debate

Here we go again... just let the damn thing go.
Point taken.
It get's to be like a bunch of old ladies around here at times.
We even get into reading the rules, starting polls... blah blah blah blah....
We even get people that have never even posted here before to jump in and finally give their 2 pesos worth.
People that don't even have the nads to fill in their profiles.
Are you guys just bored and have nothing better to do ?
You guys are worse than a Homeowners association.
Let it go... Do something to help somebody for a change.

Re: Mentioning /Posting live auction debate

First of all, whomever bought the 41 mag., got just about what they deserve considering the fact that Colt never made one, and any collector with that kind of money to burn should know that.

Concerning the Custom Cobra, it's going to be interesting to see where it goes, and who the bidders are, as that box label, and the gun sure seem to be authentic. Looks like the playing field is pretty level.

I may take a shot at it myself.

Good luck everyone!

I see someone just bought themselves a pretty nice snubbie Python.
Hard to find those stainless snubbies.

Congrats.

Stole it. You can right click and save it for yourself. Then you're a horse thief too. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
