    Is that bidding price correct?

    For that price you could literally buy 95 Kimber Custom IIs

    Thats just stupid-
    A jacked up seller hoping for a REALLY un informed gullible buyer with more money than brains -
    There really should be a law :mad:

    It's authentic. The Colt rep over at M1911 posted a link to it.

    Wish I was crazy rich.

    If I was rich Id buy that at no exspense. Someone should buy that and put it in a museum.

    22+ days left for bidding,and it's already over 70K.

    I bet it will go for over 150K.

    There are some really sick and very rich people in this world!

    Ok, now that the shock has somewhat died down for me...

    I can try to think of this purely as an awesome investment...

    if I were able to scrape together $80+K (mortgage the house,
    mortgage the wife, mortgage the kids, keep my car...) It might be a
    wise investment. Wouldn't something like that HAVE to go up as time
    goes on?

    How much more $s do you think it'll go up in 10 more years? 110th
    anniversary of the 1911. I would think at LEAST 10%... But I would do
    one better!

    Between now and 10 years from now, I would have that gun featured in
    a big-budget action move and then cha-ching! Put it back on the auction
    block just as the movie hits theaters.

    I should keep my awesome money making ideas to myself.

    Why don't you try it and let us know how it works out for ya.

    I can double your interest/appreciation calculation by putting the $80K in a simple CD!
