Cabin Fever or, Be Careful What You Wish For!

So, there I was, in the middle of the Gun-Auction Jungle!
I was in search of the elusive Great Deal!
And then, all of a sudden....there they were!
Three of them, in the form of Ruger New Model Blackhawks with 6.5 inch barrels!
They snuck up on me. I bagged them all....I couldn't avoid them!
Another successful safari!

In all seriousness, I had no intention (and neither did my budget) of getting all 3. At this auction, these three and a couple others were all set to close for bidding at the same time. I wasn't aware of that at the time I placed bids.
As it was, I got all 3 for $1116 after fees and taxes. I was very surprised at that.
Pictures to follow after I pick them up.

I know! I was shocked! SHOCKED! Other items went reasonably too! Ammo got a bit silly.
Some items went closer to market...S&W model 65 3 inch went around $500 I think.
Pics will be available Wednesday I hope.

All three!!! Sounds like the kind of guy that has 17 big bundles of TP stored in his basement right now!

I think many people are avoiding frivolous purchases right now since many businesses are being forced to shut down. I would save every penny and jump into the stock market when things bottom out.

I will confess to getting 5 corned beef briskets in one day, but I'm Irish!
