Same exact thing as guns 4 pennies.
That's who we've been talking about for the past 4-5 days; guess I should have pm'd you to clue ya in on that earlier. There was a OTA thread, but since they're sponsors, it's a bit more discrete to discuss it here.

I don't doubt the deal, so long as the high bidder didn't spend a ton of bids. Profits on items from these sites often are many times over retail, even with the high bidder only paying a few bucks. Yes, the losing bidders are the ones that are big time losers that create all that profit.
