    I'd been following a Star Ultrastar .40 mag on Ebay,
    it'd been on three times before, no bids, I saw that
    there were again no bids when it relisted, auction
    was scheduled to end after the weekend, I was going to
    bid on it Sunday...failed to notice that the new auction
    was a 1st Bidder Wins...and it was GONE...dangit!!

    Mag & box went for $45 & shipping...argh.

    So much for a Birthday Present to me...LOL
    Live & learn!

    I missed a lot of items like that, back before I swore off fleabay. I learned the true meaning of, "Ya snooze, ya loose!"

    I like ebay but refuse to do auctions
    If it doesn't have a buy it now option
    They don't get my money

    I bid and buy several ways on ebay. Very often on those that have a buy it now option as well as a make an offer option I frequently get it for less than the buy it now price. Sometimes drastically less than the buy it now price.
