anyone stacking for SHTF?

Recommended Posts

Negative, bro. Hardly anyone owns silver (or gold), which means that it won't be used as currency in a SHTF or zombie apocalypse situation. You can't trade what you don't have, and most people simply don't have it.

In Puerto Rico, cash was king during their power outage. In a prolonged SHTF situation, I think clean water, food, pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, ammunition, and fuel will be the currency or barter goods.

I believe it is useful for SHTF but only after the re-build would start. During a SHTF scenario gold/silver would be useless but it would always be better than cash in the long term.

I stack gold/silver more as a way to not put all my trust in banks.

If you're worried about SHTF gold/silver should only be stacked after you have more important things taken care of such as water/food storage, stacking of medicine and anything that could be valuable such as alcohol, cigarettes etc

In a shtf, au and ag are useless unless you are dealing with toffs and are planning to buy their buildings !

Remember we are the great unwashed when/if the s truly hits the f....all the way from upper class down.....a doctor wont accept ag or au if he/she is struggling to feed his own family.....
