Bidding Information:

You must be a minimum of 18 years of age in order to bid, except for the firearms and ammunition lots you must be a minimum of 21 years of age in order to bid.

When you place a max bid, the current bid price does not automatically go to your max bid.  The computer will automatically bid up to your max bid in the increments specified as other bidders place bids or in the event of a lot with a reserve, it can bid against the reserve.

This auction uses the auto extend feature, meaning the auction will not close until all bidding parties are satisfied.  If any bids are placed within the last 2 minutes of the item closing, the bid on lot(s) will extend for an additional 2 minutes. The bidding will extend in 2-minute increments from the time the last bid is placed until there are no more bids, and the lot sits idle for 2 minutes.
