    Just some food for thought;)

    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?

    Interesting, I'll pass this to my wife. Maybe she'll quit griping about my guns and buying ;)

    Do I need one? No. Do I want one? Oh yeah!
    :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.
