Gold naysayers listen up....none here I know, but inspiration to Goldbugs. My favorite gunshop owner of 15 years gives me a call today, it went like this: Hello 917601, yeah XXX, great to hear from you....I am calling because I am closing down my shop, I have been advised by my ammo distributors that we are out of everything, powder, primers, bullets, reloading dies, etc......and can no longer obtain quantities or supply you......xxx but I regularly have ordered 1500 lbs of powder every six months or so, you said expect spotty delays, partial orders....no, we are wiped out....xxx, forever? ...Not forever, but for the forseeable future...so XXX calls me and says he has very little inventory left, sold out, he is closing shop for good, and asked do I know of anyone that has GOLD to trade for what he has left ( couple pounds of powder, a few cases of primers, a few cases of 9mm, 38/357, 5.56 crated ammo). He was selling 2 boxes of ammo only per gun sold, he is now out of guns ( but he says he can still get them) but ammo, no more. I replied I will check to see if I know anyone that has any gold coins willing to trade for ammo....

Some clarification needed here. The point in mentioning the gun shop liquidation is he wanted only gold for payment.
So, in times when something becomes "unobtainable" ( ammo, primers, reloading supplies), the unobtainable suddenly becomes obtainable only with PMs. There are way to many gold naysayers and humbugs out there that just can't grasp the concept of PM ownership.

Not entirely clear, but he made certain he always had 1500 pounds on hand, topping off as needed due to the yearly demand. When Covid hit, he ran dry very quickly unable to replenish.

Just use 10 silver dimes in a shotgun in place of a slug. It will blow a hole clear thru.

About ten years ago, a good friend of mine bought a nice, 10 acre piece of property in NV, and all he had to pay was physical Au.

The seller was not interested.

He went to a coin dealer in Vegas, converted the PMs to FRNs and bought the property.

What a difference 10 years makes!
