That's how we do it... that lets folks gang up or lets someone play 'kingmaker.' It works and is kinda fun to do.

If his gun wasn't loaded, I think it'd be a pretty big handicap. Or, in the case of HW set in a a magical world, I'd say that if the avenue of attack being used by the bidder is invalid (no bullets, out of ammo, arrows all broken, No-Manna-Zone) then the skill just won't work and the bid is forfeit (no losses, perhaps or, if he's caught off guard, just loses the bid)

But a hefty handicap is good if the bid still might succeed somehow.
