Dick seems to have my vote. In a real auction as you mention, the last bid wins, no matter what the guy thought it should have brought. No hidden reserves. ON a typical GB or AA's auction, For example, starting a bid at $.01 for a 12 ga. beater Trojan and having a hidden reserve at $3102 is a real PITA. ED-1's auctions are a classic example of wasting everyones time. I can't recall ever seeing one of his guns with someone reaching the reserve. I guess they don't know the same gun is always sitting on GunsAmerica or International with the real for sale price sitting on it. I'm sure glad he uses upper case letters in his listing so I can be prewarned to pass it on by. But, I support everyones right to list and price his guns in any way they want. JMO Randy
