Winning an auction is like a drug to some people. I have seen bidders at public sales go beyond retail just to beat the other guy and have everyone gasp. Ebay has literally steered the market on many items and will run rampant for who knows how long.
I shoulda put my 30-30 and 45-70 barrels on there, coulda doubled my money. Sheesh, that's a full 30 bucks above what you'd pay to have the factory fit one for you. $154.00, picture of an idiot in action.
The local pawn shop must use Ebay as his price reference, he wants $140 for NEF 20ga shotguns in very good or less condition when Walmart 20 miles away has all you want at $96 new, blue book on what he has is about $70.
I must say, I do not see a lot of turnover in his stock on hand.
