A cylinder from my 1858 loaded with homemade ammo hence my name.

I say I have an ounce of gold but really, it belongs to my youngest son who got it as a gift when he was born. It's a Krugeraand (or however you spell it). I think the prices are going to continue to rise.

With gold that high, maybe the US should sell some. Might help the debt.

I have a friend who owns a string of pawn shops, and in his very meticulous records, he knows he owns over two million dollars in gold, and he was debating having it all sold, leading me to believe he thinks it may be at a peak. But on the contrary, I look at the lower value of the US dollar versus the Euro, along with are struggling economy, and the US Government deficit... I think that a large investment in gold will definitely hold it's value in comparison to an interest rate or an investment return, versus the risk.
