    Who thinks the dollars going to crash?

    Sure seems to be a strange time to be alive. The old mighty dollar is really taking a beating. All this talk of digital wallets, crypto and printing trillions it almost makes one think they are trying to crash it.

    Anyone have a bunch of silver they wanna sell cheap? 😆

    Despite what post apocalyptic movies and every doomsday prepper fancies a good investment, silver and gold will be about as valuable as soiled diaper in a world wide catastrophic event, and one could make a strong argument the soiled diaper is more useful as bait in a trap or fertilizer for your garden.....If we ever experience a worldwide collapse (a "doomsday" scenario), with 8 billion people on this earth starving, clean water and food stores will be the most valuable commodity, followed closely by medicine, shelter and clothing and Mr Smith and Wesson to protect it. When your survival shortens to one week without clean water, gold and silver's demand and value will fall of a cliff faster then lemmings into the sea....

    Don't get stuck with a closet full of gold. Better it be stocked with food, water and clothing.

    Imagine if you and your family were hunkered down after an apocalypse and looking at your food stores you had 1 months worth of food and some dude from Tnet shows up with the lost Dents run gold and wants 2 weeks of your food in exchange. Literally, one of those little single serving Salt and Pepper packs from Burger King would be more valuable to you then his gold.

    At these times, I wish that I had a 1000 areas farm where it is always hot and the crops grown all year around. I would never run out of food and moonshine. Tippy my cat and I loves # 7. A great sense of humor.

    Word of advice/ Don't purchase Jumbo eggs, because they are the same size of X-Large, but, higher prices. Check it out.

    I tend to agree, but most people who stack precious metals do so as a hedge against inflation, an investment, and a hedge against the $$ tanking, which usually drives up the price of precious metals.
    I don't think many people think that they are realistically going to be bartering an ounce of silver for half a loaf of bread, if it gets to that point you'd shoot the guy and take his bread, of he'd shoot you and talk the silver.

    Keep in mind also that large food/water stockpiles are difficult for the average person to maintain because of shelf life - You really can't stock enough to last, say, half a year and expect to keep it fresh with daily consumption/rotation.

    Eventually unless something changes it's inevitable - downfall of our free market and inflation will eventually become a major issue. The National Dept is something like 28 Trillion and that comes out to about $223k per tax payer. Our Liabilities are already greater than our national assets so on paper we are already upside down.

    Either prices go up or you have to print more money - one of which delays the inevitable.

    In an end of the world scenario sure I would agree silver and gold are probably worthless, but in an economic depression or collapse of a single country anyone who isn't buying Silver and Gold now will be kicking themselves 20 years from now. I bought a couple rolls of silver 2 years ago at 16 and ounce or roughly 18.5 for silver eagles with the premium. I wish I had bought a lot more as we will soon reach 40 an ounce. IMO

    When I read about Hyperinflation in countries like 1920's soviet Russia it's hard not to see we are on the same path. We may not be printing new denominations yet, but we have new alloys of pocket change that is essential worthless and now one cares about. The Penny and Nickel cost the taxpayer more to make then they are worth and the vast majority of the population is clueless. I was actually educating a young man on this very topic today he didn't even know if a Silver Eagle was legal tender and he is our company accountant! Sadly we live in a world at the moment where values are calculated by credits, coins, gems, bitcoin, V-bucks or whatever other number exist in the cloud. It may very well be the future but the transition will be painful for the dollar at the very least.

    HH and pull all the silver you can still find!

    Food, clean water, medicine, and a way to keep producing food.. A few guns are never a bad idea either;

    to hunt game and protect yourself.. These are the things that will have real value in any SHTF scenario.

    The bonus might be silver or gold; but since you cannot eat or drink them, they will have limited use.

    I have heard that alcohol [I do not drink so that is a non starter for me] would be a good thing to

    have on hand as well.. makes great barter currency.

You remember that. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in".

    Agreed, but city people generally do not have the outdoor skills
    needed to survive. To most, the farm and meat market are located
    at the local supermarket.

    Don't have much gold or silver, but I do have a home sitting on
    a river large enough to have 6 different runs of salmon each year,
    and I'm surrounded by wilderness loaded with elk, deer, bear
    and loads of smaller game. Oh yeah...and my wife can can anything..

    Coins and valuable metals
    I totally agree we are heading in a bad direction and if the stuff doesn't hit the fan the dollar certainly is going to suffer badly. I was thinking about investing in some stock and then saw the hyperinflation starting up and said to myself, no way. Everything is too fragile for me to take that leap and our current leadership isn't helping. eman1000 is right that the melt value of some coins are even higher than the face value now and that doesn't even count the costs in making the coins.

    I'd love to be more self sufficient, but it takes a great deal of money to invest it into yourself to cover all bases. I'm stuck in an urban setting on a fixed income. On a good sidenote is that I found running water streaming under my home years ago that i can tap for use here. Boil it and run it through a filter and that problem is solved. The toilet doesn't care and I can just fill the tank up in back straight away.

    BTW, all you guys that use gold and silver for a shtf situation can come over here and I'll sell you some bread for all you've got. You guys are right that it's only good for an inflation hedge, but only if someone out there is willing to exchange for it at the higher rates. Don't put all your extra large eggs (lol) into 1 basket. S & W resides here too and is a necessity.
