Re: Financial/Investments

Im in the black and may cash out some or all of my fund.
My kid has been flipping boats and Jetskis and making 3k average a month.Average boat is 5-6 k with a 2-3 k return with minor repairs and cleaning.This is side money from his other income.Thats a better return than my stock and funds.
He got a buyer for my skiff and I didn't have it advertised.Travel trailer is going too.Im not attached to anything for the right price and don't mind doing repairs with the right motivation.I see more 800 mg Ibuprofen in my future

Try a double dose of Aleve

With current events and the election coming, I don't think Smith & Wesson nor Ruger have run out of gas yet.

I will try the Aleve.Been taking dark cherry capsules and TRYING not to eat a lot of red meat or alcohol but the last couple of storms had me hurting.Doc prescribed 2 800s a day.I take them when I get really bad.Dont like taking meds.
I have been in a crazy funk lately about guns.Havent had the hots for anything.Always looking for deals on Colts or HK but no cravings.Sailboats on the other hand are always on my brain.Probably not a good investment unless you could write it off as therapy.

Re: Financial/Investments

We've gone off topic, but the Aleve helps me more than IB - my wife is just the opposite. I'm hurting in this "feels like" 100 degree weather removing old wood fencing and replacing with vinyl. Hardest part is removing existing posts.

Re: Financial/Investments

BTW, I was talking about stocks, not physical firearm procurement

Doc had me on anther anti-inflammatory when I asked to switch to Ibuprofen.Worked a little better.Have not used a cane in over 21/2 years so I guess the torture at the gym and eating better did help some too.
I have to put up a fence on my place but wont do it till fall.Actually Ill watch my boys do it and supervise.I can watch people work all day.
Sold the stocks and mutual fund yesterday.Going to let it sit in money market for now.Probably pay the bank note on the house off next week and start remodeling and upgrading.

Re: Financial/Investments

I wonder how much money the Bank will give me for those gold foil covered chocolate coins


It's been said that if it's made in China it may be a cheap knock off--- well their gold bars are FAKE-- 83 tons of fake gold so far.


https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/83...eiting-scandal

a dozen Chinese financial institutions, mainly trust companies (i.e., shadow banks) loaned 20 billion yuan ($2.8 billion) over the past five years to Wuhan Kingold Jewelry with pure gold as collateral and insurance policies to cover any losses. There was just one problem: the "gold" turned out to be gold-plated copper.

a lender seeking to melt gold collateral found black tungsten plate in the middle of the bars.

Re: Financial/Investments

I added some more to NAK today. This Pebble mine is looking VERY promising. All pros, haven't found any cons.
This site has a lot of good info https://stocktwits.com/symbol/NAK in the chatter.
