...as time goes by. I plan to buy gold every month after I pay my monthly bills. Not much, just what I can afford that month so either a 1/4 ounce coin or a 1/10 ounce coin will be the likely monthly purchase. I may buy silver in place of that but that probably then would be a tube of 25 coins. As for ammo, I will buy about two to four boxes per month unless funds allow for more. If I can only afford one of either bullion or ammo, I very likely will forego the ammo in favor of gold or silver depending how I feel at the moment (I have a good amount of ammo but not enough bullion).
If you are short on either, I recommend doing something similar to my plan. I think tougher times are coming - much tougher times than we have lived through in most of our lifetimes and those commodities may help you get through them. How I wish I had bought Rhodium and or Paladium five years ago when either was way down in price as compared to now. Just an ounce of Rhodium at $790.00 per ounce five years ago could have grossed $27,000.00 last April or thereabouts! That is an increase over 34 times its price within 5 years! I had considered buying it at the time but wimped out - shame on me.
So now, at least I plan to buy at least a bit of security each month. I in no way expect either gold or silver (or for that matter brass, copper & lead) to increase anywhere near a spike like that, in fact they may decrease but either way - up or down - if a fiscal crisis comes about and we become the Venezuela of the north - I will have security to some small degree.
All the best,
