Well i finally have a job that pays decently so ive decided its time to start preparing for when SHTF. Ive been looking to invest some of my money into silver or gold to get some return to use for gear later on down the road and use some as currency for trades if SHTF.

Ive been looking at the APMEX since i havent read any complaints about them. I think im gonna start off with some silver rounds

So can anyone help out a newb and tell me if you think this is good idea or if there is a better vendor out there? Any advice would be very appericated.

Northwest mint sometimes takes 2 to 4 months to deliver. Apmex has always managed to deliver in one week or less. There are other oneline dealers where you can get better deals at times, you just have to search. I'd start with some 90 % silver U.S. coins first. Then move on to one ounce bullion coins, then 10 ounce bars. I started back in February, and thats is what I've been doing. Some dealers charge more for their product, but less for shipping. You just have to figure it both ways to see which is the better deal. If you live in the same State as the dealer, you'll have to pay sales tax. Here are a couple of good ones for small orders.

Buy from a state with no sales tax...

I went with MJPM.com in Oregon. Great guy, all went as he said it would. Price quoted includes the shipping. I went 70% "junk bags" (silver) and 30% Krugs (gold).

I find a good relationship with a local coin dealer ( store front ) can be very beneficial. There are fewer people collecting coins and most coin collections from the greatest generation are being liquidated for pennies on the dollar. After mutiple visits and some cash purchases and they realize you are not just a tire kicker and will tend to help. They are usually ready to let go of lower grade coins they have recieved at good prices.

To benefit the site's hurricane victims fund, there is an auction running for silver bullion in the classifieds. Might just be a good place to start. Check it for details.
