Malgus is spot-on with the precious metals.
But I agree, that a newby prepper should stack food, water, and weapons first, then maybe some PMs.
I did it kinda bass-ackwards, I had purchased a good sum of Silver, then started thinking of the preps.
I was in financial shock when my 401A took a 33% hit in late 2008, and I knew I had to have something
on hand as opposed to being in someone else’s hands. Silver is by far the
best upside of anything we can buy as monetary insurance against SHTF. Our “money” will be back to it’s intrinsic value, ZERO!
(paper and ink, backed by false promises)
PMs are a bridge to the financial future, a “head start” if you will. If I could extract my 401A tomorrow, I
would go heavy in Silver, and round out my preps, perhaps up to 25% for physical preps. Mostly SILVER.
1. I’m doing OK with physical preps
2. PMs are an approved roll-over vehicle.
It’s called a “Self-Directed IRA” and can be SELF HELD!
