On tonight’s episode of “Auction Hunters,” Pawn Shop Edition, Ton Jones and Allen Haff who dug through hundreds of unclaimed storage units hunting for discarded treasure, now own a shop called Haff Ton Pawn Shop and must keep it filled, as they search for more on this episode titled, “Nothing But Net.”
As the episode opens, it is 7 a.m. at the shop on Mystery Shopper Day. They want to make sure their customers are getting the best service, so people will be posing as shoppers to see how they do.
While the guys attend an auction, they notice two familiar faces; Danny and CJ, two adversaries who have teamed up. As the first unit bidding begins, there is a nice bicycle in there that Allen wants. Ton warns him against emotional bidding, which can bring up the price. Danny won this one for $850 as Ton warned Allen not to let these guys get in his head.
The next one is lots of books and as Allen tries to drop the unit on Danny & CJ, they almost drop it in him, but someone else bids and wins the books.
The third goes to Danny, and the fourth one and fifth one too, just to show them who is boss.
With one unit left; it contains high quality camping gear. Allen gets it for $1,450. The unit contained a brand new inflatable kayak worth $200, and a net gun, to shoot at a target so a large net drops over them. Maybe the guys will be looking for Bigfoot. Ton knows that if these work, they could get $2,500 for them. They found a motorcycle with the name Rokon, and Trail-Breaker on the side. It looked like army camouflage, and a motorcycle expert told them it was a moto-tractor, a workhorse of a bike used to go to remote areas. The Israeli Defense Force used Rokons mounted with anti-tank missiles. It even floats, as the wheels hold 4.5 gallons each and allow the vehicle to float when empty. It cannot be driven across water, but will float alongside of the person walking with it. He offered $2,000, but they guys wanted $3,800 and there was no deal with him.
They went to see Kevin, who is with California Fish & Game and knew he would flip when he saw the net guns. He told them they used these for big horn sheep and mountain lions and such large animals. In China, they use these for crowd control. The gun has a kick to it and can knock down the user if they are not careful. He said if they worked, he would give them $7,000 for the pair. So Allen went to the truck and brought out the Rokon. When Kevin saw it, he offered $10,000 for the three items. They also sold more items for $550. After paying $1,450, they made a profit of $9,100 on this episode of “Auction Hunters.”
