Looks like Jesse James, the winner of the first Bushmaster ACR released to a civilian, decided he needs money more than the gun:

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=161198693

He looks happy in that picture, but not as happy as I bet he is now.

Oh if only I would have followed his 3 steps to success:

1) Attend AAC Silencer Shoot

2) Place bid on Bushmaster ACR silent auction

3) Win and PROFIT

The current bid on Gunbroker is $15,000!

Pretty sweet profit so far considering Bushmaster’s MSRP is $3061

No telling what the bid will be up to closer to the auction end date of May 30.

I don’t know how much he actually paid for the ACR in the silent auction, but the post on Advanced Armament’s Blog states that $7500 was raised during the auction.  Considering the Bushmaster ACR was not the only product in the silent auction, I think its safe to say that at the current bid, Jesse is already more than doubling his money.  On top of that, the auction doesn’t even include the sweet AimPoint CompM4 and Suppressor that came on his ACR!!!!

According to the details in the auction:

As part of an agreement with a large private collector, I am offering this rifle to the General Public before it is stored in a large walk-in safe forever. This rifle is being offered to the General Public for a ONE TIME ONLY event, once this auction has ended the rifle will be either turned over to the Winning Bidder, or it will go to the private collector. The reserve is set at the private collector’s firm offer. If the reserve is beat, the rifle will go to the winning bidder.

I hate to think what the reserve price is!

Anyone feeling generous?  Email me if you want my FFL info :P

You chased your floating cereal around the bowl for the last time.

The is where the Aimpoint guys chime in and say “DUDE, if you put a CompM4 on there you would never have to worry about losing power mid-meal for YEARS”

Wow.. These guys look like they are from the future with those googles.

Lets see… HK G36C rifles, handguns likely Glocks or HKs in the drop leg holster by the looks of it, Optics.. Aimpoint comp M4 with the 3x magnifier.  Elbow pads, but no kneepads.

The best part is that the guy right in front obviously didn’t get the memo about putting your pant stirrups inside your shoe not outside, so he managed to break one of his :(
