Why! You didnít buy it and she threatened to leave you for missing out on that?

That would suck, glad you dodged that. grin

I only went for the grinder and the tumbler. $2000 later I walked out with what is pictured plus another big load of lead and brass.

Some things are worth the risk. I would of went for it too. Some things are just about principles.

I walked around one corner and had to turn around and walk away. It was revolvers galore.

I shed a tear as I walked out of that room.

I could've spent a ton more money.

I think the sale ends Sunday. I may go down and see if I can talk them down on some other things of interest to me.

Yeah, itís a rescue mission at this point.


Gotta help them out, what if the government gets them and destroys them?

I like how that grinder is set up! Good haul!


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Text me your wife's phone number. You know, just in case you ever DO get divorced and she decides to have a yard sale.

I saw a picture of it 2 weeks ago. Told the wife I wanted it. She just shook her head and asked why I needed another grinder. I said incase I want to grind a cow up in 2.3 seconds. It's a definite "Use a push rod" type.

Ohhhhh there is nothing light about it. I had my neighbor come up with his fork lift and get it out of my truck.

lol.... No...

I got home and put all the reloading stuff away nice and neat. She came downstairs and looked around and said "I've been asking you to clean this basement up for 3 years and you still haven't gotten around to it. But you buy all this crap and it's neatly tucked away an hour after getting home." I told her I know I know... She then asked when I was going to get on putting everything else away. I said I didn't have any room to store stuff. Needless to say it's 11 pm here and I'm on the recliner.

You can always store some things down here at the Delaware annex. Shorter drive for Angela.

I went to an auction a few years ago with similar results. I went for a 3 point tiller for my tractor but that sold within 200 of a new one so I passed. But they had a lot of guns that day 2 on my I have been wanting for years but they have gone way to high in price.

I left with a 1981 Marlin 357mag lever gun and a 1979 Marlin 39a both for $1000 or $1100 I can't remember now. The 357 was in mint condition and pre safely. The 39a had been used but in good shape. There was another 39a in mint but I was in the back not planning to buy any guns and could not see which one was being sold from back there. I would have bought them both for the price I paid but they started another auction ring and that's where the tiller I went for was so I didn't see the other one sell.

You did much better than I did. Congrats. I would not hav had the will power to not watch the revolvers sell.

I'm guessing you have been married long enough to know exactly what you can get away with. grin

Auctions that "loaded" don't come by very often. Would have dropped big bucks there too.
