Won my very first GB auction!

Ended up winning an early SA TRP in AK. No FCS, no ambi and no magwell. No night sights, but I've really started going towards an all black rear sight with a NS or gold bead front. I think it's a really cool gun. It was made in the SACS back when they first started making them, and the owner says it shoots lights out. I'll know pretty soon.

Very nice! I want a TRP. There's a guy selling a used stainless one locally for $1100. I'm tempted to give him a call.

Careful with the GB! It gets addicting, real quick. Especially if you have an FFL who does your transfers for cheap, they get as excited to see what you're bringing in as you are. I blew an entire paycheck once on GB, then went down the gun store and they had a pretty little thing at a good price that had to go home with my GB purchase. I guess it's not GB's fault, guns themselves are just addicting

It's funny you say that. I called my FFL today and they recognized my number on their caller ID and answered the phone, "So what did you buy now Joe?".

It was kind of over priced IMO, but I'd never seen one before and said WTH. I've gotten two great deals lately in the Gemini Custom SP101 and the SACS EMP 9mm.

That's an interesting one for sure Joe, nice pickup. I'm surprised that's your first GB purchase, I've had a lot of luck there myself.

I found the Legacy on GB, but since it was at a dealers, I just called them and bought it on the spot. I didn't want to risk the auction scenario on that one. I bought the RRA from Dave at DRC Firearms. It was his personal gun and I was able to talk him out of it.

Good job.

I should warn you that buying on gun Broker can be habit forming.

As habits goes it is not that bad. You can end up with some really nice guns like you did.

It's not like "crack is whack" habit where you can end up dead.

I missed an auction because GB flagged my account as suspicious. Then they sat there and argued with me because I wouldn't send them copies of personal documents that not even eBay asks for.
