*** INSTEAD OF BUYING GOLD AND SILVER***
Buy guns and ammo. If and when shtf gold and silver will be worthless. People will barter for things of use like guns, ammo, water, food, tools and such things. You want to invest in things that will put food in your mouth and protection. Just my two cents, thought Id share because its what Iv been doing. Iv even started trade my stuff that I have for things that I will be able to use just a tip.

no need not to do both.

I mean lets face it. You could kill a lot of dear with 10k rounds of 308, 800 rounds of 12 gauge, and 500 rounds of 357mag.

If shit dont get so bad and its just a currency swap, you could be in decent shape with just a couple hundred oz of on hand silver.

Water, food, ammo, friends, and siliver in that order.

The idea of using a worthless metal seems dumb you cant use silver or gold for anything. The only reason it worth any thing is because someone thought it was pretty. In a world full of chaos no body will really want. We need to get away from the idea that we need some metal to buy somthing. Instead try barter real goods and even you labor.

Re: *** INSTEAD OF BUYING GOLD AND SILVER***
common sense (for me)

i think people are going to go back to bartering.

not continuing on the monetary system with silver
that is,
your replacing the dollar bill with silver.
can't do much with silver like ya cant do much with a dollar bill.

really, all this GREED over silver.
like, your going to be rich in six months
so, get it real cheap and get AS MUCH as you can,
and you will be rich.

vv
true wealth is your health.
have things that people will have use for
imagine if everyone invested in food + water + gardening
instead of silver.
then we could all barter. your silver means nothing to me.
^^thoughts.

please, no 'your wrong' (ignorant) replies

Guns, ammo, and food don't hurt, but there will still be farms and factories selling things for people to buy. If the majority of people thought like you, then yes i would not want gold or silver. but most people realize its not going to be the end of the world, all civilization, and all technology as we know it. oil will still be pumped, cars will be built, farsm will be tended to, etc etc etc. No one is going ot trade you a dead deer for any of the stuff they have.

Study history. Seriously. Gold and silver are valued as currencies in exchange for goods all over the world, going back thousands and thousands of years.

You are being ignorant and short-sighted. What about 5 years after the SHTF? After things settle down, humans will return to their natural instincts and create an easily exhangable currency using gold and silver.

The economic system we have is weak and venerable. It will collapse, but an economy will re-develop. Putting all your money into guns and ammo isn't a good choice, unless your just dirt poor. I am by no means rich, but if I put all my assets into guns and ammo, my house would be full and I would literally live in a powder keg. I've got guns and lots of ammo, and OP is right in that I bought it first, but gold and silver will serve a purpose in rebuilding an economy. People won't want fiat for a while.

 Quoting: patdeez84


Again here you show your ignorance of history. Jewelry was created as a means to CARRY your currency. Jewelry was not created to be "pretty", but to show to others your wealth and to use it in exchange for goods. It was quite common hundreds and thousands of years ago to give someone a ring or necklace for goods or services rendered.

And as for thinking growing food is the path to wealth, historically farmers have been the poorest people in the world. Short term after the SHTF food and water will be king, but those that will be well off years down the road will be those with silver and gold.
