Hedging Your Investment Portfolio by Buying Firearms
http://www.lewrockwell.com/crovelli/crovelli22.html

Writing for TheStreet.com on Friday, Doug Kass succinctly summarized just how bad the current economic environment is – even for those who have heretofore been thought to be the "best and brightest" of the investment world:

There are very sound fundamental reasons for putting guns and ammunition in your investment portfolio. The money required to get the firearm portion of your portfolio started need not be outrageous.

One way to start is to purchase as many Mosin Nagant rifles as you are legally permitted to purchase for the year. These are very accurate and hard-hitting rifles that fire the cheap (for now) 7.64 x 54R round. Another option would be to consider getting involved in reloading ammunition. Of course, if you are not looking for value investments, consider purchasing M1A’s instead of Mosin Nagants.

Investors who choose to hedge their mainstream investment portfolio with a healthy dose of guns and ammunition are unlikely to be disappointed with future returns. This is especially true since an investment in firearms can also be employed to defend one’s life, liberty and property against thieves and politicians (if there’s a difference). You definitely can’t say that about owning stock in Bank of America.



And for those who ever thought about ammo for a currency;
http://occupiednashville.blogspot.com/2009/05/ammunitionthe-new-currency.html

The new currency would be based on .22 and .38 and .45 for pistol; / revolver load; and .22, 30/30 and 30.06 for rifle load; and .12 gauge for shotgun load.

.223s might be worth several variations.
E.g.
1 .233 = 2 9mm
1 .223 = 2 .38
1 .223 = 1 .357
2 .223 = 1 .45
1 .223 = .75 30.06 (I’m partial to 30.06)
etc. etc.
50 .22s = 1 30.06
etc. etc.
We talking bar prices or convenience store prices?

:confused: you dont know what its worth. Could be more :neener:

if your talking about end of world type, then a box of 20 rounds would be worth its weight [or more] in gold.

The journal ran a story awhile back about this, it's the real deal folks and why ammo supplies are stressed.

Ammo and reloading components are also commodities.

I was all set to trade a couple boxes of .223 for a thousand small pistol primers. Unfortunately for me the deal fell through.

erhh.........are we trying to avoid taxes here? Sounds like bartering to me. I'm sure the Obummer folks will be looking in to that.
