Auction Results

Recommended Posts

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.
