If you are in favor of getting guns off the streets and out of our society, here is the perfect watch for you. It makes your political statement, like a bumper sticker on your wrist. If you are a member of the Jim and Sarah Brady organization Handgun Control, or the Brady Campaign, and are anti-NRA, you'll like this.
This is a very unusual watch... Bet you've never seen one like this before. And, you may never again... So bid accordingly, Good Luck.


THIS WATCH IS BRAND NEW AND COMES WITH 5 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S INTERNATIONAL WARRANTY!
This is a quality watch with genuine leather band and fine precision quartz movement. The face is approx. 1 1/2 ", large, easy to read size.

Don't let this unusual watch get away. It is very attractive and you'll be proud to wear it yourself or give as a gift!

NO RESERVE! BID NOW, BIDDING STARTS AT JUST $7.97!

I'd love to get one, take it to the range, put a 9mm round through it (or better yet a .308) and mail the pieces back to this joker (with the shell casing).

But of course it would just reinforce our image as "gun nuts".

WHAT?!

But...but...those folks at VPC and the Brady organizations said that they didn't want to take anyone's guns away!

What do you expect from a company started by a Franco-Iranian?

Someone should buy it, put a .177 BB or a pellet through it and then relist it as a "different kind of bumper sticker for your wrist." Unfortunately, I don't know anyone with a really powerful air rifle or I'd try to buy it and shoot it myself.

A "Franco-Iranian?" Isn't that like the ultimate breed of surrender monkey?

That must be why they have whole sections for "scopes" and "holsters", not to mention "hunting: miscellaneous" which is like Gun Parts Central. :scrutiny:

If you'll check that sellers other auctions you'll find he also has one that says "God bless Charlton Heston" and usually has a variety of gun watches.

He also has Southern Baptist, Islam & "Shalom" watches. Apparently he's a equal opportunity merchant.

Or he is an equal opportunity hater, and hates everyone by the same amount.

Someone who doesn't care about their feedback ought to bid 1 Million dollars and someone else that also doesn't like their feedback ought to bid 1 million and 1 dollars. Then don't pay. I volunteer to be the one to bid 1 million dollars. Someone else wan't go go higher than me? You must bid first. :D

Someone who doesn't care about their feedback ought to bid 1 Million dollars El Rojo, to bid over $15,000, one must have a credit card on file with ebay or otherwise be a verified member. Dont ask how I know this, let it suffice to say that no one will be buying that watch any time soon.:D
Now I know what to do with all those AOL disks that keep comming in the mail All my projectiles keep going through the hole in the center. Maybe I should move the CD from the 50 yard line to the 100 yard line?:neener:

AOL disks make great target. I have been trying to get a 30.06 round through the spindle hole at 100 yards without touching the disk, for about a year now. It's a good thing the AOL disks multiple faster then rabbits.

Wow, a political statement on your wrist. Talk about preaching to the choir. "Yup, its 10 o'clock, I'm still a sheep."

I know I'm preaching to THEIR choir, but everytime I get a postage free return from anti-gunner orgs., I mail it back. Keeps my garbage from building up. Of course, after turning 50, I do the same with AARP literature. With them, I usually include other junk mail flyers!!! I'm into giving a LITTLE bit back!!!!

Ok. I too wish eBay would carry more gun related stuff but I can't say that just them allowing Brady, Hangun Control Inc., or VPC stuff to be sold constitutes an unfair anti-gun bias. In eBay's defendse, if you do a search for NRA you do find ALOT (353 when I searched) of NRA goods. Hypcitical would be to only allow one side and not the other to be sold.
