You bid the starting price and let the auction end. If someone else bids over you on the item, you can either bid over him, or let it go. If you are the winner, you will be notified who and how to pay. You will have to arrange transfer with your local dealer, and will need to send a copy of his FFL to the seller with your funds. Or, have your dealer fax a copy of his FFL to the seller and you pay the seller. Buying on GunBroker.com doesn't cost extra; only selling items do you get charged a small fee. I have nearly 50 transaction on GunBroker.com without any problems!
Tried to register on line but it demanded a credit card number, so I guess that leaves me out. I will give it over a secure phone line but always balk at putting it over the internet, so I guess I'll have to look elswhere. Thanks for the info anyway! May Jaquas or somebody else will have one.
A secure phone line but not a secure encrypted web page? If anything, the page you type your information on is more secure than the phone line you talk to someone on. If you saw the way a web server encrypts pages, you wouldn't have many worries about typing on a secure encrypted web page. As long as the web address starts with "https://" you're good. But it is your own personal information and I am not one to tell you what to do with it. Hope you find what you're looking for. Josh
