^^^^^^^ Many seem to think this is what these interdnet forums are for, to give away knowledge gained and acquired by hard work. A very socialist idea. "Just give it to me". Now, all we need is someone in a position of power to tell us "you have to,.... or else!". Anyone out there that's read or watched "Atlas Shrugged"?Were I to do that, then you would be deprived of the knowledge I have acquired by hard work.
I'm really confused here... gunbroker is an auction site, that means the selling price is what someone was willing to pay. All of the pictures you linked except for the last one have completely reasonable reserve/starting bids (the starting bid of $150 for the 5 bottles of H4350 is actually lower than any price I have seen that locally). The only idiots here are the people who bid it up to $500, thats not the seller's fault.Or maybe it’s the people paying these prices that make them so bold. Been watching powder on Gunbroker to see what the scalpers are selling for. Just saw 3-1lb bottles of H1000 sell for $515 plus shipping!
cant believe what this guy is asking for an 8lber, plus $50 shipping, PLUS 3.5% PayPal/credit card fee.
The hoarders are out of control again. Ok rant now over lol.View attachment 220001View attachment 220002View attachment 220003View attachment 220006
There's nothing magic about setting "back in stock" reminders on major online retailers, you just cant be sitting around with your thumbs up your a** when you get the email.Well good then. All is right with the world. Please teach us your magic.
gpo1956: Smart [email protected]@ replies and nothing to teach? Really? Are you reading this thread thinking that every comment is to you? If you are reading this thread and getting high blood pressure because you think people are trying to teach you something, maybe you ought to get over yourself. This particular thread is 99 & 44/one-hundredths percent opinion. And they are only directed at you if you allow them to be directed at you. Not everyone here has gotten a thumbs up from everyone else on this thread, but you don't hear everyone else whining because someone they don't even know does not agree wholly with their opinion. Relax. Have a drink and load a few rounds of your favorite hunting/target loads.Would you idiots please get off your high horses and quit taking yourselves so seriously. Believe me, you can’t teach me anything about economics or politics. My posts were responses to your arrogant [email protected]@ replies. You have nothing to “teach” me that I would care to learn. Get over yourselves. You can bluff some with your pseudo-intellectual attempts, but not me.

All you are showing is one side of the market. It takes buyers and sellers to come together to create a deal. We are 14 pages in and it seems like back to square one. Auction or fixed price, it doesn’t matter. If anything, from an academic perspective the auction would drives prices higher than a fixed price auction.Maybe this can help with your confusion....
Those darned buyers are setting the buy it now prices high again lol.
Apparently the low start auctions were bad examples initially. Hope these help.

I had one of those that I bought for $80 and sold for a very slight profit years later... the attorney I sleep next to reminded me I had to claim that as income.Just like all those mosin nagants imported back in the day that sold for 69 dollars apiece.
