Re: gun auction site practice
There are a lot of shady folks I'm not defending or saying right or wrong, but I do know a lot of buyers remorse goes on -people go out there online for the first time, and say 'yeah', let's do it, then they go find out they have to pay shipping, and then find the online site wants 3% more to use a credit card AND they have to pay their local dealer 30-50 bucks for paper work to receive the gun. Then while they're at the dealer finding that out, they see something that catches their eye that is cheaper and no hassle with the dealer egging them on because that is HIS sale.
I'm firmly convinced escalating fees is becoming a cottage industry here in PA.
Twice on the same item with the same seller is very suspicious, but I wouldn't say it's out of the realm of possibility. That would be pretty dumb to pull - the second time they would just put a reserve price on it of what they have to have and save time.
