    Dec 15, 2010, 9:53 PM - Storage Wars...Boba Item... #1

    So, I was flipping through the channels and came across a show called Storage Wars on A&E. Essencially if you don't know what it is, a bunch of guys bid on storage lockers that have been abandoned or not paid for.

    Anywho, the guy gets this locker for $250. He opens a box, find a bunch of flare guns. And wouldn't you know...the mother of all flare guns...the sub flare gun that was used for Boba's... And, I am not talking about old and rusty, I am talking about, so minty, it came right out of 1914?(year correct?). Why can't I have that much luck?!?!

    More of me going "I know what that is!". The way the show goes is: the bidders get a quick gander at the locker, don't get to search through stuff, so they have to guess at if the locker is worth it. So, the one guy saw a box marked fragile and figured to bid on it. He bid $250, got the locker, brought all the stuff home and started opening it, and found the one box filled with the flare guns. He only knew it was a flare gun. The expert appraised it at $400 max.
