Gah why can't I have unlimited money?
buy gun, steel silver, buy house?
Easier to steal a gun and rob someone of silver.
I was kinda wondering that too.
Home prices are relatively low. Gun & PM prices are relatively high.
houses are cheap right now. if you have good credit, you should be fine.
then just do like everyone else did and over-leverage and buy all the guns and ammo you want, file for bankruptcy and end up with a house and lots of guns (car too if you so desire), and then just wait the 7 years (it'll take that long anyways for all the rest of this shit to settle down) and you're set.
fuck honesty. clearly it doesn't pay off
Sad but true.
My credit sucks right now because my mortgage bank is reporting that I'm two months late on my payments (I'm current, of course). I disputed it with the CRA and said they verified it. I asked them for proof since I know it's bullshit and they said "they proved it to US, lulz". But that's another thread.
Any way, fuck 'em. That sounds like a great plan.
even playing it straight doesn't pay off
lulz @ credit system failure
I could fill this thread up with fucked up credit system bullshit.
best idea fight club had going for it
Nope. Pisses me off. I've walked the straight and narrow since I failed out of an intro credit card as a sophomore in college. And now I have a credit score around 500. Fuck them all.
Yeah but I want to buy a house.
Where are you buying silver local?
there is a guy over by my office in baytown that has some 2009 eagles for spot plus a couple bucks
I'm not, I'm getting them from NWT mint. Cheaper, but huge lead time. But I'd buy eagles at spot plus two. Hook me up with contact info?
yeah I'll get the name when I go to lunch
As far as buying silver, is just going to a coin shop and buying junk silver the way to go if you're not a collector?
As long as the junk is in decent shape that would be fine. If there are gouges/major wear it might not be so good for barter, if that is the intention.
Apmex has Maple Leafs for $2.99 over spot right now. Not a bad deal and I've always had good luck with them.
Gold Turquoise & Silver
2310 Garth Rd
Baytown, TX 77520
And spot plus a couple of bucks has turned into $19 per
supply and demand sucks when it's something that I want
Shit. Spot is barely twelve dollars. Fuck that.
wtf is a spot?
"Spot" price is the market value of 1 troy ounce of the raw metal. Since the "spot" price changes throughout the day, dealers usually just advertise their prices as "spot" plus a premium. For example a dealer might price 1oz Silver Eagles at $3.99 over spot. If the "spot" price is $10, you're paying $13.99 for that coin, if spot is $15 then you're paying $18.99.
Currency denominated coins usually command the highest premiums. Next is buillion coins (aka rounds) and bars, then rough forms like nuggets get the smallest premium.
