Default Looks like silver does have value in a crisis situ

LAUGHING OUT LOUD

I made the trade of the century for 9 bars of silver. Man were some of you guys wrong about PM's, really wrong! Not saying anything more about it other than I am buying more PM's while its down in price.

Idaho here I come.........

I just made a KILLER DEAL for an unknown quantity of "bars" for something really cool that I'm not going to tell you about, but I'm going to start a thread about; I AM AWESOME!

If this is your feeble attempt to encourage people to "stock up" on PM's. it may just be the stupidest post I have ever seen. Please go to Idaho. I have defended your posts in the past. But this is just poor form. We're not all stupid. Please respect that.

I agree, it's kind of a teaser thread, but this amount of derision is unwarranted. PC has contributed a tremendous amount of useful content over time. He deserves a little leeway, imo.

9 bars of silver means nothing.

9 1kilo bars, 9 1oz bars, 9 1/2 pound bars?

The post means nothing.

I got a great deal trading silver for something great is not worth posting. I got a great deal trading 9 kilos of silver for something great is also not worth posting.

At least he edited it to say "crisis" instead of "shtf." Of course that too is ridiculous since we're in neither.

I just made an EPIC DEAL for silver bars of 3 Musketeers for $0.50 each at the local supermarket. They were a bunch of SUCKAS. My silver bars will be worth their weight in gold when SHTF. I am even MORE AWESOME than you!

Its OK. But thanks for the vote. These guys are the reason I stopped posting all my reviews. Why help people with a bad attitude that find ANYTHING to nit pick about. I have no intention of saying what I traded my silver for but I can tell you the profit was good and helps me get to ID that much quicker. Silver and gold has more value than green paper. One property I looked at wanted gold or silver in trade not cash. It had a shooting range right on the property.

By the way, naysayers, who do you think got this forum created?

I'm not a naysayer. But your thread should have been way more descriptive. And we all voted for this sub forum.

Kestryll i would say since it's his house and many others who asked for it also.

i for one do know that PM's in general have value for those that would accept it for current market price. nothing wrong with that. it's legal tender from what i understand.

and i remember a post stating that you would be perma-banned if you created a thread regarding survival and SHTF in any other forum here.

not posting the deal you got is your perogotive but it's kinda a troll thread. some people want to know though as long as it's legal.

He posted to tell us that he won't tell us, kind of an underhanded "I am SO much smarter than any of you" combined with "I've got a secret." It's like being back in third grade.

This means nothing to most people, but I'm a Warlock and since I can see through walls, I know what he's talking about and wow! You all should have listened to the OP. Are you ever dumb.
Way to go bro!

9 bars? 1 ounce each?

Let me guess for a Vegas escort. I think you overpaid her big time.

of course it is. PM's have held value for centuries nothing new today. nothing wrong with using for what ever transaction you wish as long as the other party agrees to it.

Silver, Gold = Money

I've always been of that mind set.

OP needs to tell us what he bought.
He states 9 bars.
So, 1 ounce, 5 ounce, 10 ounce, 100 ounce.
My guess is that he bought some land in his Idaho hideaway.

Let's see......100 Oz bar is around $3k.
9 bars, $21k
Since he is yapping about Idaho, then he must have bought some land there.
Which is exactly what I did with silver I bought at $8 an ounce and sold at $49. Bought land.

I'm guessing he bought a used moving van.
