It looks like a scam, but you never know. The penny auction concept is crazy, but the idea of getting a gun for $20 is interesting...

Anyone tried out http://bidgunner.com?

yeah, looks that way. was watching a SIG 1911 last night that someone got for "$72". so, bidgunner got around $3600 + $72 and the buyer probably bought $500 in bids and lost 10 hours of their lives! i'm staying away.

Although there are a few true bargains, when you do the math it is definitely not a good deal on average.

Hundreds of years from now it won't matter how much I had in my bank account, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of truck that I drove. But I may have made the world different because of something I did that was so astonishingly idiotic that it became the stuff of legends.

Wow, I wish I had thought of that concept...seems like the value of paid bids collected, assuming $0.65 per penny bid, is almost always well in excess of the retail price of the item being sold. And the promise of "scoring" a good deal, however low the probability of success, will bring the bidders in. In some ways, it might provide a similar experience as a form of gambling.

Its a total rip off for anyone other than the seller. When buying the bids as long as they have a few people heavy in it it goes on forever as Once they have "invested" so much in bids they hate to stop so they keep throwing money at it.

I came to the same conclusion. If a deal looks too good to be true ... it probably is.
