Kind of out of perspective. The people who are seriously considering that purchase are not effected by a $5m hit to the bank account. These are the people that dont even bid on their own toys.

If I was rich then yes I would buy these things. They are so cool and such unique historical pieces.
I agree on the perspective; if I had so much money that $5M meant as much to me as $500 does now, then I'd probably consider them.
I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.
