  1. Wait, what???? Comrade Murphy wants 7% up front, then he will want a CG cut when I sell? I guess I should have expected it in NJ.
  2. Thanks. I'm in a similar position, but have not yet acquired any PM.
  3. But doesn't the paper give you exposure to an asset that acts like the PM? At least until the apocalypse comes?
  4. I can understand that. I have the same feeling, but part of that is based on the apocalypse scenario, where a gold or silver ETF is but going to help you. OTOH I would want to make sure my insurance is going to cover that roll of Eagles too.
  5. But why physical PM vs owning it through a holding company or fund that would but and store and maintain the metal for you. Can't you get the same exposure that route?
  6. Seems like a diversified portfolio of stock in companies with international exposure, REITs, maybe some foreign currency bonds, and maybe PMs (indirectly) and crypto would be a better strategy. Why would one own physical PM other than the MadMax option?
  7. Valcambi produces various sizes of what they call a combi-bar. 100*1g, 50*1, 20*1 Where you can snap off one gram at a time. https://www.jmbullion.com/100-gram-valcambi-gold-combibar-100x1g/
  8. Which is why, so far, my PMs consist of lead and brass. In a MadMax scenario I think these will hold value just based on utility. And if things get bad, but not MadMax bad, maybe having a mix of PMs + crypto as a hedge...
  9. So by buying eagles, maple leafs etc. at large premium to spot, vs buying say .999 silver shot, at a lower per oz? Because the coins are essentially self authenticating?
  10. Besides lead and brass. What type/amount of physical metal do people keep or would like to keep? Not as investment but as a store of value for a near apocalypse? And Gold vs silver vs other options? And what about online purchase? Legit/honest online sellers. Also I noticed a pretty large variation in silver prices/markup over spot based on the form, like certain coins seem to draw huge markups. I would think that when selling, the buyer is not going to care about an American Eagle vs a silver bar. Thanks
  11. Hoping that Machine and Sinema have the backbone to stand against this, or at least stand against eliminating the filibuster rule.
  12. Move to ocean county. My GP is great, she was pushing HCX when we saw her last June. And in January telling us DO NOT GET THE VACCINE! And my wife's former Ob/Gyn wrote a note when PD had questions about a medical condition for her FPID approval. They wouldn't approve without a doctor's note! Had nothing to do with his specialty, but he didn't care, just asked what guns she was going to buy, and wrote a note saying it would not affect her ability to safely handle a gun.
  13. I have the 92FS and I love it, great gun. I did not know about the .22 conversion kit, but based on a quick search it looks pretty good. Quick and easy to swap and I couldn't find a negative review so far. I will consider getting this for cheaper target shooting. And welcome to the forum
  14. Dumbass keeps his Covid-19 mask on the whole time.
  15. Wow, really great study! Thanks
  16. I have a Dark Storm "other" and pretty happy with it. I think Masks had a video posted with DSI showing their products at the range about a year ago.
  17. I just acquired a new AR (Modern Materiel, built up in Keyport, NJ) and noticed the manual stated to use only brass cased ammo, built to SAAMI spec. Is there any reason not to run non-brass (e.g. Steel)? Could it cause damage? What would be their rationale to put that in the manual? Thanks!
  18. Who knows, but until then should you vote for the candidate that is going to do everything possible to infringe on your civil rights, the one who is going to veto such laws and just maybe try and restore your civil rights, or vote for the Libertarian party candidate, who had no chance to win? I don't have an issue with people who just want to take that stand on principle, but I would personally take the pragmatic choice. If you're waiting for the perfect candidate, you will always be waiting.
  19. It does not matter what you or I believe, what matters is what you can prove by repeatable means for the court. That being said, I think we all can agree that is it gets too that point especially in NJ, you are already screwed.
  20. Yeah, Mas is a total dumbass when it comes to firearms. No one is stopping you from using hand loads. Go ahead. But why give the state extra ammo to help in their prosecution? With hand loads they'll be able to throw out any argument based on ballistic testing, because there is no way to reproduce the load you used, other than based on your word.
  21. I have always understood that custom hand loads is a very bad idea for self defense, as it is impossible to carry out ballistic testing if you are but able to use the exact same ammo. "Determining distance using GSR evidence is supposed to be done by firing ammunition identical to what was in your gun at the time of the shooting. If the ammunition is not standard, it will be difficult to obtain accurate results. " https://www.gunsamerica.com/digest/why-you-should-avoid-handloads-for-concealed-carry/#:~:text=The use of handloads can,your attacker's body or clothing. Ayoob and others strongly discourage it. Mas talks about problems with " forensic replicability when the shooter is accused, and opposing theories of distance become a factor." Here's what Ayoob says: https://www.backwoodshome.com/blogs/MassadAyoob/the-problem-with-handloads-for-defense/
  22. But even a RINO like Chris Christie still held the line where it was by using his veto power, and granting pardons to otherwise innocent people who accidentally failed to comply with draconian law. Look what has happened since CC left, 10 rounds and people like Shaneen Allen get jacked up for an innocent misunderstanding. I think one side is clearly the lesser of two evils.
  23. Especially if they say you could've safely retreated. Tens of thousands in legal fees, probably lose all your firearms, maybe jail time.
