    I just tried buying a gun off the gunbroker site! They keep changing and adding time to the end of the auction?! Is this normal and routine?! Thanks, Tom Rhoads

    Yep, any bid in the last 15 minutes gives 15 minutes more for others to outbid ya.

    What they do on GUnbroker is they wait till 15 minutes after the last bid to have a winner.

    It's setup up that way to end the practice of sniping....Ebay was supposed to go to it but has not. It's gotten to be a rarity to bid on ebay and win with more than a minute left. Software will allow a sniper to bid right on the money.

    It's been that way since it came online. It's in the fine print. Seems like a fair way to do things, but I could see how it could be aggravating. Better luck next time.
