Todd I agree...I never look down at anyone who wants something and is
willing to pay for it...I sold Joe a HF-380 and asked premium and
received premium but would have kept it otherwise. Joe is buying in
order to set up a Museum someday and all of his gear is operational...
>From what I understand it is all tested on a monthly basis...Trying to
keep our heritage alive and that is good...

Yep, 'UJR has won a few auctions 'against' 'ACU and others. I figure it
all boils down to how badly you want something, really. More power to
Joe for having the dough and not being timid about using it. For all the
carping the few have done over the years about how much Joe 'ACU bids on
some items, I've often wonder how many, in the same financial position,
wouldn't do the same?
