    I guess it only got fixed in the description above the photos. Still says $1395.00 up top in red. Easy mistake to make if you're not familiar with the way the software uses figures.

    If I won the auction, do you think he would charge me the $13.95 or the $1,395.00?:D

    just kind of curios, did anyone e-mail the guy and let him know about the typo???????????

    $1,395 does seem a tad excessive :neener:

    That would seem to be the prudent thing to do. Ask him if he made a mistake or if he was crazy.... But I guess it is just easier to make fun of him on the net. Unless it is a briliant marketing move. An outrageous mistake combined with the nature of people today would almost ensure a lot of traffic to the auction. I think I will have to try that!:D

    Not only is it eaiser but it is a lot more fun as well!:D I don't need or want the stock anymore anyways. I think I will look for a Choate. The ATIs are okay but I am never totaly happy with them once I get them and I end up selling them or trading them.

    Shipping kills many "good deals" on the internet I find, especially on some types of ammo. As for typos, my 2004 tax return photocopy I requested from the IRS says I made like 2600000 in 2004 on one line! Wish that wasn't a typo.

    The company I work (major electronic component distributor) for charged some guy 23.95 to ship a five dollar part via ground, and that was no mistake.
