You could very well be right, and I have stated as much here on ATS before. I still invest in metals...but there is one metal that beats them all.
I hoard copper hand over fist simply because it has always performed better in the markets and in a SHTF scenario it can be used for almost everything!
ETA: You can get a pound of copper for less than what a grain of silver/gold goes for.edit on 2-5-2012 by sheepslayer247 because: (no reason given)

And I am pretty sure TSHTF several times in that time span...Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, English...just to name a few.

Not everyone in a SHTF incident will have access to 4 5 and 6, what about thos that live in the UK?
Mind you saying that bullets will run out and we'll still have our cricket bats I suppose.
