Think the .22 bricks appreciated more than the gold. Haven't looked lately, but remember being shocked last year, being more accustomed to 2 cent/round common on sale pricing.

I was being a little sarcastic but I think the market rate for 22lr is about 10 cents a round nowadays. When I was in Houston I did find a 525 brick for $25 but that was two years ago.

I don't even own a .22 but I could use some more 9mm and 7.62 commie ammo and mags.

I have some gold and silver in my coin collection as a hobby but do not recommend it for investing.

How is that a bad investment?

Because one data point does not make a trend. Hitler was a nice guy, once in a while.

Gold is not an investment but rather insurance from financial destabilization as many major Central Banks continue the "Easy Money" - negative rates policies. Of course do not listen to me but here is what the Deutsche Bank states:

how many data points do you want? I know several ppl that bought metal and or metal funds in 2000 and made bank. I sold my fund shares but ended up keeping the metal.
