    Default What the heck did I just miss?

    I bid $16 on this thing because I wanted the case, and I figured I could sell the red tip to make it work out to the price I wanted.

    It sold for HOW MUCH?!?!?!?!?!?

    Those are some dumb bidders. I wish it had been my auction.

    Of course that private bidder that took it from $22 to $190 is a little weird.

    You missed a red dot case. I was the underbidder.

    notice that it is taller than a regular fatboy case, and the little tabs that hold the razor in place are wider.

    The only "rational" explanation I can come up with is they both put in "slam dunk" bids and it backfired.

    Ah, I knew there had to be something since it takes two to run it up that high.

    Thanks for the info.

    A misunderstanding with Mr. Decimal Point?

    For the seller, "priceless"(TM).

    I was watching that one too. I was thinking about 15 bucks. Average condition red tip, a little better than average fatboy case. I actually talked myself out of bidding 15 dollars because there was nothing special there. That is just crazy.

    I really miss the way you used to be able to see who was bidding on what to tell if there were straw bidders in the mix.

    Lol! No straw bidders here. I was the fellow who bid 190, and I have a pretty good idea who the winner was. It was worth it.

    I don't recall saying anything negative. My meaning was they know what they want and are willing to pay for it.

    Hey no problem. I only pointed it out so you didn't think I was a tool.
    I placed the first bid on that bottom dial just in case it slipped through the cracks and to make it easy to watch how high it goes.

    I would pay that much too for the only known example of an adjustable Red Tip!

    Isn't the magnifying circle on the opposite side of a regular FatBoy case? Even so, that's crazy money even if you are in possession of a red dot and want a complete set.

    I think it's the bottom dial that has it on the other side.
