1. You must purchase "bid" packages. Credit cards are accepted.

2. You use these purchased "bids" to bid on an item. Maybe you win, maybe you lose. Maybe you purchase more "bids" and use them and don't win the item anyway.

3. Win or lose, those "bids" you bought and used on the auction? They are GONE.

But they accept credit cards. You can buy more "bids" and try again.

The way I understand it, the seller gets all the bids placed on the item whether the bidder won the item or not. This could make the total price received for the item outrageously high. It seems like a form of online gambling to me. I will just stick to the old fashioned method and buy from the gunstore or individual.
This is my gun. There are many like her, but this one is mine.

I'm not old. I'm CLASSIC!
