    Hopefully the market will weed these FFL's out,   All the more reason to purchase as much online or out of state as possible.   They do it to themselves.

    Actually, I really wanted to buy from the the local FFLs and support them. Either they don't respond, or the guy I went to said his suppliers couldn't get what I wanted, and he told me order online and have it shipped to him.

    And along with Merrick Garland as A.G., wanna take a guess what happens next:

    ...."But the truth is simple. Second Amendment issues have come before Garland, at least four times. He voted anti-gun every time."

  3. Joe Biden to Announce Six Executive Actions on Gun Control, Including "Red Flag" Laws For States to Model

    Joe Biden and his Marxist handlers announced six ‘initial’ executive actions on gun control Wednesday evening.
    Joe Biden is breaking his pledge to protect and defend the US Constitution just a few months after stealing the 2020 election.

    Biden’s six executive actions include:

    • The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”
    • The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.
    • The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states: Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others.
    • The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions.
    • The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.
    • The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

    This is just the beginning of Joe Biden’s war on the Second Amendment.

    I cant seem to figure out if they supply the target stands or not. Does anyone know? 

    They usually charge like $3 for the wood target stands and let you borrow a post hoe digger to put them up. We bring other targets and staple them to those stands, so we can replace when they become too "holy".

    I was brought up that eventually good conquers evil, so Yes I'm hopeful.

    Ahhh, so you feel the Republicans are finally going to grow a spine, and push back, and conquer evil? Interesting..

    Just remove the rose colored glasses, you'll see it.

    And some FFLs have definitely noticed an uptick in purchase when the new wave of stimulus checks hit. Bingo!

    Isn't that exactly what I said in the Biden Bucks thread. Oh the irony, Joey wants to ban guns, and people are using their Biden Bucks to buy MORE!!

    ......"“Once the stimulus money came out, people were buying again,” said Teasdale. “Customers would come in ranting and raving about their stimulus money they just got and how Uncle Sam is helping them to buy more guns.”

    Curious how other NJ residents are dealing with the sales tax issue in acquiring PM's?

    Get them from sources like Craigslist and other selling sites... no record of purchase... problem solved....

    I am getting them from JM Bullion.  They seem to be one of a number of well known reputable online dealers based on the research I did.  (SD Bullion and APMEX were also on my list.). 

    I've bought from all three of those companies. No issues, they are all reputable.

    Thanks. I'm in a similar position, but have not yet acquired any PM.

    Jump on in, the water is fine.

    One of my first purchases were Zombucks (designed to look like Zombies). I bought them as a spoof, but based on the direction of the country lately, they might be more appropriate than Silver Eagles...  :mutley:

  9. Another day, another hack... Looks like ALL personal information was leaked, and more than just your "Friends" know everything about you.

    ......"A user in a low level hacking forum on Saturday published the phone numbers and personal data of hundreds of millions of Facebook users for free online.

    The exposed data includes personal information of over 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries, including over 32 million records on users in the US, 11 million on users in the UK, and 6 million on users in India. It includes their phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, bios, and — in some cases — email addresses.

    Insider reviewed a sample of the leaked data and verified several records by matching known Facebook users' phone numbers with the IDs listed in the data set. We also verified records by testing email addresses from the data set in Facebook's password reset feature, which can be used to partially reveal a user's phone number.

    Now, the entire dataset has been posted on the hacking forum for free, making it widely available to anyone with rudimentary data skills.

    "Individuals signing up to a reputable company like Facebook are trusting them with their data and Facebook [is] supposed to treat the data with utmost respect," Gal said. "Users having their personal information leaked is a huge breach of trust and should be handled accordingly."

    OTOH I would want to make sure my insurance is going to cover that roll of Eagles too.

    Isn't that what your lead/brass investment is for? Insurance against....

    But doesn't the paper give you exposure to an asset that acts like the PM?

    Yes.

    and then it doesn't..

    My physical will still be here, no matter what scenario comes along.

    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?

    One reason, there are tons more paper sold than available physical. If many people decide they want their physical in hand, the funds wouldn't be able to deliver it all, as it doesn't exist. Just like lead/brass, if you don't hold it, you don't own it.

    Physical gold and silver holdings protect wealth in these situations.

    So, what's your end game? Besides just rolling around in them :xD:, what do you anticipate? Cashing in when silver/gold prices hit a certain level?

    1 hour ago, Bomber said:

    What is certain is the dollar is losing value and could lose its reserve currency status one day. If that happens people are going get a painful lesson in the value of PM's verses fiat paper currencies.  

    If you look back at other countries that collapsed, like Venezuela or Argentina, paper currencies never went away. It just took more of them to buy what you needed. The far majority of people will default to this paper, no matter what. If they were holding gold/silver, it didn't give them many options, except to help them buy their way out of the country.


  13. 3 hours ago, leahcim said:

    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.

    Ha... that's true... my lead/brass is up 300% - 400% the last few years, my silver, not so much.

    3 hours ago, Old Glock guy said:

    There are a lot of reasons to hold gold and sliver, these being among them.  The problem with gold is that one ounce coins or bars contain so much value, that it would be hard to spend them as a barter medium in a case where the currency collapses. 

    That's the way I see it too, it would be tough to find someone who'll take gold in trade, based on it's value. I think silver is a better choice, based on the lower values.

    But, I still think it's going to be tough to use them in a barter/trade situation, as many people just don't understand the value (as the videos I posted above showed). Will there be a time you'll be able to buy a car, tractor, or house with a handfull of silver or gold coins, when the dollar collapses and bread costs $25/loaf? That could be a rare situation.

    Doesn't matter what the average idiot on the street average understands about value of PM's.

    And I didn't say anything about using silver/gold coins to buy groceries.

    So, if you're not going to use them to buy what you need, what are you going to use them for?


  15. 54 minutes ago, Bomber said:

    You're looking at it wrong. What we're facing at some point is a monetary crisis.

    If the federal reserve keeps creating trillions of dollars out of nothing inflation rages and the dollar's reserve status will be threatened. If they stop the printing presses the economy and asset prices crash. Either way the result is Great Depression part two.

    Gold and and silver will hold their value and be convertable into (or back) whatever form of currencies may emerge from the wreckage.

    Yeah, a monetary crisis is coming, but you're preaching a narrative held by a few PM holders, buy won't turn into reality when it comes. Reason, like I mentioned above, very few have any idea what PMs are worth. Where will you be trading your gold/silver to in your neighborhood for gas, food, supplies, medicine, etc?

    Here's what the true reality will be in these videos:

     

     

     


  16. It's really speculation if you'll be able to do anything with silver/gold when Mad Max arrives. Some people think it's the only way to go. But think about it, will the grocery store or gas station take your silver coins for payment? If things get that bad that it's considered, I think we'll have a lot bigger issues to deal with.

    That said, I have both silver and gold. More 1 oz. silver coins than gold, but I'm not expecting to be able to do anything with them. Maybe in a rare barter situation, a local person might take them in trade, but I'm not expecting them to save me from anything. Cash will be king for a long time.

    Hell, most people have no idea what a 1 oz. silver coin is worth. Mark Dice has done multiple Youtube videos proving that.

    If I had a guess, my kids will end up doing something with them, long after I'm gone.

    Regarding ordering, I've used a few different big online dealers with zero issues. Regarding price over spot, it's just a supply/demand situation, and varies with the market and interest. I also don't think you should worry about it being Eagles or Maple Leafs. Any pure generic coin is fine, no need to pay a premium for name brand. Either someone will know what a 1 oz. coin or bar is worth, or they won't.
