  1. I didn't make the trade because there us a shortage but because toilet paper manufacturers have already announced prices are going up due to inflation.  

     

    Lumber is a major business down here and timber harvesters have stopped harvesting timber because lumber mills are full and not taking anything.   Meanwhile lumber prices have doubled.  Thus has increased cost to make toilet paper.  Diesel is up meaning it cost more to ship toilet paper to the store.  

     

    I just want to give myself a savings on a necessary item and take a profit on ammo of brands I don't like while I can.  I sold sellier and bellot ammo because I hate their ammo.

    This has always been a question for people who a keeping gold for the apocalypse:  How do you spend gold?  Do you carry your own scale or trust the merchant's scale or argue it out at every cash register?  At the price of gold now a weeks worth of groceries would sell for  less than a ounce.  Itsy bitsy amounts are subject to easy loss and anything larger makes you a target for bad guys.  How do you carry it and where do you keep it safe at home?

     

    Just never seemed all that practical to me.

    You are right.  Not only is gold not practical but I have offered gold coins to my bank and they won't take them, only a coin shop or pawn shop.  

     

    A pawn shop shaves 500 off the price they pay from market value.  The nearest coon shoo is an hour and a half away.  When I lived near Atlanta few coin shops would pay a decent price for gold coins.  

     

    Once a cowboy shooter on the forum had an original 1873 shooters grade rifle for 800.  I offered a gold coin that I paid 300 for in trade when gold was 800 .  He turned it down because he couldn't find a local buyer.  Now that gold is 1700 it wouldn't have done him any good without a local buyer.

  3. Will the fence be too high for elk to clear?  Seems that's what folks use to stop pipelines in Alaska.   Sorry to hear about this, especially after seeing how snow blocks the sun and makes solar useless like it did Texas recently. 

  4. Yesterday I took a couple of boxes of ammo and traded them to a gun store for a case of toilet paper.  Today I took a couple of boxes of 30 carbine to a different gun store and traded for a pair of snake boots for my oldest son who tramps the woods a lot and ran off two water moccasin snakes just last night while fishing.

  5. my local honda atv dealer went from overflowing vehicles to barely any.  a new local guy is opening a used ATV shop and is selling used and sometimes ragged out ones for as much as a new one generally runs.  My local John Deere tractor dealer has four  3 series tractors and two 5075 cab tractors  on his lot and thats it.  I asked him to look for me an excavator months ago, a used one at that and there are none.  I asked for a 4 series tractor months ago and there are none.

    That sounds pretty good.

    grew up on that and now my kids love it.  peanut butter and syrup.  Don't forget to drink milk with it.  tops it off. sometimes that is why we ate for supper, especially when we were real poor and lived near downtown Atlanta in a small duplex.  Then when I got married and was poor sometimes it was my supper again.  Hope that is not why I am diabetic now.

  7. they have 2 last time I was there, one 45 with 7 inch barrel and i THINK the other one was 38 with the same barrel length.  Brantleys Marine and Gun Vidalia, ga.  the owner is my neighbor and my farm was once his grandfather's and he helped dig my pond back in the 50s and pulled trees out with mules.

  8. Down here in south Georgia there are not a lot of cowboy shooters so there are rarely any cowboy guns and if there are any, they stay in stock a long time.  Lately, as the shelves stay bare, I've noticed that since the dealers take any gun they can get shipped, there are several cowboy guns at both the main gun stores in town.  One has a lot of Cimarron model P and the other one has the Calvary version and the scout version, the schofield and 1875 remington as well as a few other cap and ball pistols.

  9. I found a  box of 9mm by sellier and bellot I will take to see what they will give me.  My sig shaves metal when chambering that brand plus the primers seem harder than winchester.   

    I'm wanting to save cash since everything is pricing higher lately.  

  10. I checked into getting a hybrid Ford f150 after seeing Texans use it to generate power to their Homes and discovered the batteries last about 6 years according to the dealership and are expensive to replace and even a hybrid can't run if the batteries are no good. 

  11. My local gun store started selling toilet paper during the pandemic.  Since toilet paper is going up due to inflation,  I'm thinking of taking some ammo and see if they will trade for a case of toilet paper.  Since I bought my ammo long ago, it'd be like getting my toilet paper for less than current market price.  

     

    I'm thinking of starting out with 30 carbine or MAYBE a box of 9mm.  

  12. I definitely can tell the difference between them.  I was once a colt super fan until one day I fired a kimber, colt, Wilson and sig sauer all together and compared accuracy and performance.   The colt rattled and was loose compared to the others and the shot group was spread out.  The wilson controlled recoil better and topped them all .  The kimber and sig was fairly close, more accurate than the colt.
