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....
