    Much like alcoholism.

    Anyone interested in outbidding me on this .410

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=139478246

    I must have been drunk when I bid on it. I already have a 20 ga pump and I have no idea what i would do with a .410. The ammo's not even cheep anymore.

    I think I screwed myself. I should block myself from gunbroker. I put about 5-10 bids on stuff every night. Just low ball stuff just on the off chance that by some marical I get a PSL $300. That and it's just fun to look around the site.

    $100 for a .410 single shot? I must be getting OLD!

    No your not that old I'm 23 and I can remember seeing them at the shows for much less but $100 is actually on the low end in these crazy times. i can probably turn around and sell it for $150 but that will take time.

    I used to have that affliction, once bought a brand new Ruger Black Hawk for $299. I bought a bunch of stuff off of GB over the years, now I just try to stay away from it. Too tempting once I get to looking, like Emelda Marcos in a shoe shop.

    I look but have never registered to bid. I know how I can be with purchases. I will stick to the gun shows.

    Good luck w/ that 410.

    I've picked up a couple of small items from GB. One was a bolt assembly for my Win 67 that I inherited.

    When I can get the money, I may buy a gun that I can't get locally. It's not a 410 by the way. Good luck with the auction ;)

    That receiver is gorgeous. Think about this, have it sleeved and rechambered to 5.45x39. The only thing that would be a problem is the ejector.

    I didn't know you could do that. I would be very interested in doing something like that. Any idea how much something like that would cost?

    That's not a problem for me. Since I live in PRK (Cali) no one on GB will sell a firearm to me any way.
    Too much of a PITA for paperwork.

    My problem was I cannot get a doggone dealer here to answer my phone calls or emails about doing a transfer.....I have my C&R but no FFL....No need for the extra hassles!
