    Heard about this forum on a gun board I belong to. I been buying silver for about 3 years now. Not huge amounts but I have a nice pile. Once the price started dropping I have purchased in larger increments. I have searched the ebay name brand stores, and comparesilverprices.com to find my best price on silver. I am not big into designer style rounds or bars. I just know brands (lbma type) stuff. Stick with Sunshine, RMC, OPM, Silvertowne, etc stuff. And I buy the closest to spot that is for sale. Interesting forum, enjoying the info I have read so far.

    High Everybody,
    Lug

    FYI, my reasons for buying silver right now....Someday a dollar might be worth kindling?? And leave a pile of shiny stuff to my kids. I am not a trader, I am a stacker, as I have read I think the term applies to me. As of this point I have no desire to sell what I have accumulated. If the price sky rockets, well, I might reevaluate on some, but my plan is to pretty much keep what I have. Hobby, fun, hedge call it what you will.

    I don't know if this is place to post about this, but I have an incomplete set of J.S. Marino firefighter silver rounds. Set was to go 1986-2000. I got to 1994. I lost track of the company, and never got the final rounds. I am a fireman, and this was my first overt silver purchase. I will see about posting a picture when I get more familiar. Anybody with suggestions about a better place to post on them I am all ears. Thanks for the welcome guys.
