Haha! That analogy brought a smile to my face, Keith. You are right. I can't stand people (that's an extreme sentiment, I'm exaggerating) that needlessly slow things down. But I also just drove 180 miles to the cottage and really, I only averaged 20 km over the 80 km per hour limit. My thinking is the 80 km limit is stupid. But I just drive around the slow guys.

But the point I'm trying to make is that in my old age, I'm slowing down. And becoming less prone to tell others how to behave as long as they aren't forcing me to behave in some way (King, are you listening? Lol).

Not being an American, I'm not too familiar with the downward trajectory of gunlist. But I do know that when stores fail to satisfy their customers, other more savvy retailers take their place. That will be true for the Internet as well.

The gun sales/auction site that does the best job of matching buyers and sellers will survive. Got a better idea? Set up your own site. It's the free market, baby!

I agree that on both gunsinternational and gun broker too many guns stay forever. If you watch some of the international sites like NaturaBuy it is the same. The amount of unsold chaff is a fact of life and sellers are everybit entitled to list as we are to ignore. As to pricing, the fact they are unsold speaks for itself.

Ok Keith you have on your point in one respect, Mike's description are on more than one gun are a bit much. There is a bit of blarney. I have not taken the time to check through all of them to get an exact count. That said as a defender of Mike I still have to report every deal I have made with him has left me happy. I have met him on more than one occasion and like the guy. He allows an inspection period and He takes returns.

I read that article a month or so ago. IMHO it answered a lot of questions about what the guy is doing. I'm sure, in person, I could find lots I might buy at a decent price. But his photos still suck. LOL

Thank you for posting the article. I confess I also get frustrated by his listings on GB getting in the way of me finding new and interesting old doubles that aren't yet priced at retail. Reading the piece humanizes it all.

I’d venture to say all the guns in the article are his personal guns and not the ones on gunbroker. The pictures certainly are better.

I just got back into shooting about 5 years ago. Guns international was eye opening. After many years away it was amazing the amount of guns out there. There wasn’t anything like gi back then

That being said it is disappointing that so many guns are still there only to be relisted as new today. There are some dealers I never look at because they are so overpriced
