est. of 7 million "millionaires" in USA and 20 million of them in the world

anyhow, didn't intent to start an argument. just saying 1% of the world becoming stackers of PM seems unlikely to me. I wish the actual figure was 100%
Trust me much more than 1% of the population has been stacking this past year. We have 12 co-workers that I know of and this is out of a factory with 400 in it. No telling how many of the others stack that I have no idea about. This past year every other ad on the radio and TV was telling people to buy gold/silver, I'd say 10% of the public has stacked something at this point.....

To add in...

How many will have situations where they will be able to hold onto some of their stack during the price fluctuations? Commodities will rise and fall along with the POS until a paper/physical disconnect is achieved...if ever achieved...

I hate thinking of being the "richest" many in a poor world but survival is still a key element of my being

Ironic is what comes to mind after growing up being taught to give to others, I now understand what it means to save for myself...

maybe 1% of the USA population. but i don't see the global population that high when so many are struggeling to simply feed themselves.

I don't know these guys but some so called expert sez 1-2% of USA population

yesterday, we stopped at 2 pawns, exited both with silver, around spot.. 8 ASE's from one 31.50 ea, tube fresh 2009's... 2nd pawn, 15 assorted Morgans and Peace dollars, at $25 each... 5 AU, 10 were EF45 and up...
stopped at my sons home and traded it all for some special ordered .308/7.62 NATO, long rifle ammo..

we are leaving now to the largest outdoor flea market in CT on Sundays, fiat filled pockets... looking for items to flip and of course PM's.. riding the goldwing and pulling the bushtec trailer behind the bike, (are we expecting a load full of something).??

not here to bust balls, but who likes stacking silver anyway?
you buy a monsterbox or some heavy kilo silver bars, put it away.. if it goes up great if not, not.

it will definitely not make you rich, but it does have potential to make you poor.

Youre missing the whole point of saving your money via silver. Have you not read the thousands of threads about economic collapse, fiat is worthless, etc... I do not buy silver to get rich. Never once have I thought, "man I hope the country turns to SH$t, and my hoards of silver and gold are worth 100 times what I paid for them". That's not the point. The point for me is stability of value and surviving an economic tsunami. I don't plan on selling my silver, at least a good portion of it anyway. My plan is to "use" silver when the time comes. What's you're plan? Are you selling when we get to $50? Sounds like that's what youre looking for. If so, go out today and sell all your physical and on Monday when the market opens buy SLV or some of the leveraged plays in either direction.

nobody also said that silver is gonna remain stable.. if you wanna have purchasing power you save fiat, the world is not dead yet or gone to hell..

Really? Think so huh? Take a minute to do some due diligence and you'll find that fiat has lost over 20% of its buying power.
