I see this on a 4-wheeler listing. I never heard of it before:

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE MISSISSIPPI STATE TAX COMMISSION CHARGES A $50.00 TRAUMA CARE FEE ON ALL ATV'S, RTV'S, GOLF CARTS, GO CARTS, ETC.
Sounds like we already have Obamacare.

I put in a few bids early just to test the water. Some look good and some cheap junk. I am sure they will all be WAY overpriced by the actual auction but I will still go anyway to look at em in person and see everyone spend their money. I dont think anyone of them will sell for a "good deal" when the smoke clears.

That's for the trauma care center we're supposedly going to get sometime in the next century. They charge it to anything dangerous eg motorcycles

Any idea how that auction works? Couldn't find anything about buyer's premiums, or how/when to pick up, payments, etc.

It's a rip off. Premiums are rediculous. It is something like 30+ % with all the BS involved. I looked into this a while back but decided to drop it b/c all the rigamarole you got to do and where you would hafta fill out the forms for transfer.

You can just show up in Picayune.Online there is a 18% buyers premium. Whatever you win is +18% when you go to pay.+ 7% MS sales tax.It says they do a background check there.($15)

When you register it explains it in full detail. What it amounts to is the auction man still gets his cut and then they have an extra % for the online site. Thats how they can afford to put it all online. Then it also has to incled shipping

Going to any auction in person is cheaper unless you include your fuel and time off work.
Most firearms auctions are NEVER a "great deal" always some idiot that gets excited and keeps raising his hand.

Oh as far as the Cuevas auction, I have bought and sold through them. Got some pretty good deals on trucks and equipment in the past.

+1 Buyer Beware. Disclaimer-----This thread was just for information purposes only. I was in no way suggesting that it was a cheap place for quality firearms. I am NOT affiliated with Mr Roland or Cuevas auction but have done other business there.

So how's this work? I went in and placed a load of bids on several guns. Do they still put them up on the auction block on the day of the auction, and tell everyone the current online bid is "XX," so anyone bid higher? Is that how it goes?

I wouldn't be a threat to a serious bidder with my piddly little stuff, but if nobody has any love for a no-name shottie, who knows? I might get lucky on one...
