Thats right. I am oh so very pissed. I was winning bidder on a Colt Python 6" blued and the auction ended while I was in school. Not that I'm surprised to have lost the auction, what burns me is that I lost by a mere $5. Had I been able to watch the auction I might have won. At least I still have some nice Python grips on the way.

It has happened to me on any number of occasions.

Hey, I may have a Ruger Single Six, both cyl, new and stainless, on the way! :D

Congratulations! I just send Tusker a MO for his beautiful stag Python grips yesterday and now I need to find a gun to put them on. I think I'll cry myself to sleep tonight. Time to save more money while the overtime is abundant and look for a nice Python at a fair price in the meantime.

I'm going to build an AR-15 first though. CheaperThanDirt has near complete Colt M-16 upper assemblies with the triangular forearm. I've always liked the older forends and hated the new round ones. I'll start there and finish it sometime next year.

"Cowboy" is one way to put it. :x Life goes on. I just hate auctions because I typically lose when I bid what its really worth.

I found another one I want more this morning. An 8" blued version with 5 days to go. The other five bidders weren't even near the reserve price so I may actually win this one.

I do want that Colt M-16 upper too though. Hopefully my incentive check comes tomorrow.

I'm currently bidding on another Python with a much higher price. I will win this one. The auction ends an hour after my class ends so I can watch patiently as it ends. I've also picked up 15 hours of overtime this weekend to fund the extra expense. Hopefully I have deeper pockets than anyone else watching.

I ordered the M-16 upper assembly for the AR15 today too. That will be a fun project.
