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 .
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.
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.

i agree, though not interested in this gun. i would certianly rather see a forum member out bid me than a stranger.there have been times when i saw a bargain and thought of posting as i didn`t have the cash. any other opinions??

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.
Here we go again... just let the damn thing go.
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.
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.
