I attend quite a few auctions on a weekly basis trying to maintain a decent inventory of items. Usually I come away with a small amount of items at a decent price that I can make some money on. Friday night was a typical example. I bought a training bomb and mountain ruck. At minimum I should be able to double my investment, we'll see.

 

Occasionally the planets are aligned and the auction gods smile on me. Today was one such day. I attended a public auction that advertised some military and showed a few photos. I didn't really see a ton of stuff in the listing, but I figured I'd check it out. As it turns out there was quite a bit of military items there. This would qualify as Planet Alignment. The second part of the equation was the fact that I was the only guy buying military. This would be the auction gods beaming down on me. With the exception of a few items, I bought all of the military there. Being the only buyer meant that the opening bid was normally the final bid. I'm pretty sure what I paid for all this stuff would be a criminal offense in some states. Now there's some of what I call "filler" items. But there's also some diamonds hiding in there. It's going to take me a few days to just evaluate and inventory everything.

 

This wouldn't qualify as a mouse fart in a snowstorm compared to the big dealers. But I'm happy with my little victories.

 

I wish they all went like this but it would take the fun out of it too.

Nice score, auctions can be a real unknown as things seem to sell super high (people get caught up in the bidding) or super low.

The perfect storm for sure. Looks like you scored some nice AAF gear in that pile.
