    $20,000 in gold or $20,000 in ammunition? And why?

    $20,000 in gold because I've got close to $20,000 in ammo. 😄

    Gold because it's a lot easier to convert into ammo legally than vice versa.

    In 1990 gold was $400/ounce and surplus 7.62 was running about $175/k rounds.

    Gold has quadrupled while the ammo has not quite tripled.

    However, when the SHTF, ammo would make great ballistic wampum, maybe better than gold.

    The $20k in gold, but I'd sell it fast and invest the proceeds in an S&P 500 index fund.

    Gold for me. Yes, it is in a slight dip at the moment. Over the long haul, gold is a much better investment than ammo.

    The gold for all reasons above. Plus I can give some to those I wish with no worries they won't know WHAT to do with it.

    Take the gold. Make the gold into ammo. Great for pimp varminting. I may be getting pimps/gold bullets and werewolves/silver bullets mixed up.

    The price of gold changes by the minute so I take the gold.

    20k in gold.

    20k in ammo would get shot at the range, 20k in gold would be an investment.
