    What's Happened To Metals?

    Was going to buy a few more 1 oz. copper rounds from two dealers I deal with and when I went to the copper page, ALL of the copper was out of stock. Then, I checked the prices and they've almost doubled since I last bought some.

    I can understand gold and silver going up in price, but why is copper almost non-existent and why have the prices skyrocketed?

    Is this all part of Idiot Joe's "Build Back Better?"

    People are trying to get out of dollars and into something that won't soon be worthless. These are scary times my friend.

    Actually this is more due to the plandemic disrupting supply and transport of goods, all so they can 'Build Back Better' (aka destroy the economy and enslave the world).

    Time to divest of metals and invest in wood. I have dime baggies of pine shavings for $15.

    Sadly, the stupid COVID has impacted ALL industry world wide. If anything, the metal industries from ALL foreign nations have seen their output CUT by 66% because they are either restricted by law or company regulations to about 30% capacity (COVID distancing, etc). I talked to a friend in Europe and asked if they could 'fill the gap' of American ammo shortages, but even THEY can't up their output considering that for the past year, they've been either shut down or forced to 30% capacity.

    The entire COVID pandemic has been a GODSEND to Democrats. It allowed them to TANK Trump's economy, to ram through leftwing policies, to make buying guns/ammo almost impossible, to CHEAT an election. It's almost like CHINA released COVID 19 as a GIFT to the Democrats (and other liberals around the world) in order to force lockdowns and seize power.

    It's a good thing I have about 20' of 1/2" copper pipe lying around.
