A friend of mine is thinking about buying a gun from this site. Any one here ever bought any thing from them and is it legit?
Never heard of em either - so no, have not used them.
It's not for me and here is why. Example - Say you purchase 100 bids that costs you $80.00. You just paid $80.00 for $1.00 worth of bids. One bid is one penny. An auction can drag out for days. Supposedly folks can get perhaps a Sig p238 for $22.00 or a Bushmaster AR for $60 or so dollars. If you do the math and logic it is easy to loose a bunch of money. If you have 20 people bidding and each one of them purchased 100 bids that comes up to $1600.00 for the auction supplier (typically Buds) before the firearm is sold. Just my humble opinion.

Winning an auction on there is almost like winning the lottery unless you want to spend a lot of money AND have a ton of time to waste.
In the bidgunner penny auction, each bid costs an average of $0.65/per bid.
At $0.65/bid, $7.69 bid has earned the the listing comany $500
For examle, there is a Remington 870 Tact Magul that just sold for $23.07. That means the website took in $1,499 for that shotgun. Bargain? I think not!

ya, its a penny auction site. The Auction sites make KILLINGS on every bid, Basically you pay for each of your bids.

check out what the ARs are selling for on that site. The profit they are making must be obscene.
