    For survival, useless . . . . Youre correct. But things will begin to stabilize quickly after a calamity. Barter is difficult because you might not have anything the other guy wants. And he sure as hell wont want shitty fiat paper money. But gold and silver are an ancient currency that is always valuable as money. If hes in desperate need of medication or food, he wont accept it, but if hes just trying to offload some extras to get something of greater value, he very well might. Speaking for myself: Id have zero use for a crappy .380 lady pistol, but Id take 6-8 ounce silver coins.

    Yeah I don't think I'd barter off guns....but I do see how it could work.

    Stock up on more useful things such as here recently people have this perceived need for toilet paper. Maybe batteries, think more in terms of a general store than a gun store. Youll also be able to attract/be relevant to a larger group of people.

    Agreed. Plus, in my opinion, its a waste of money that could be better spent elsewhere.

    Might be good for arming unprepared friends and family who show up begging for a loaner...
    Beretta 81's at Classic Firearms for $209 seem like good candidates.

    The last thing you want to do in a Mad Max scenario is meet anyone outside of your village / farm.

    Oh, you dont already live in a small village with a nice farm and animals? Then you're going to die sooner than later.

    Me? I dont want to live in the Dark Ages with guns. I'd rather die quickly. Not worried about it.

    I would never arm anyone other than a family member or someone already armed that is just a little short.

    Had a cousin call me up last week asking to "borrow" a pistol. He wanted to give it to his wife for protection when he wasn't home. His only firearm experience is with an old shotgun. His wife has never held a gun in her life, they have 5 wild children with no self control that would instantly shoot each other the second she left the gun on a table.

    Call me a fudd, but I don't want that crap on my conscience.

    Told him I didn't have one to spare.
