  1. Gold and silver prices are down

    I've been getting best pricing utilizing a direct wire transfer between my bank and the bullion vendor. The only "issue" with this method is that you do have to wait approximately 10 days to 2 weeks to receive your purchase, but it is the cheapest method.
  2. Gold and silver prices are down

    I personally like to have some of my physical gold and silver in coins. For me, this is as much a hedge in case the SHTF as well as an inflation hedge. ASE's are going for a lot over spot, but I've noticed much better prices on the Canadian maple leaf coins. I actually think my next purchase of...
  3. Gold and silver prices are down

    I have had great luck with JM Bullion over numerous purchases. As long as I purchase more than $1,000 worth, they've never pulled any fee or tax stunts. Live and learn.
  4. Northeast HamXposition @ Marlboro 2021 - Sept 10-12

    Yeah, that's another ham event that I usually attend, but plan on skipping for now.
  5. Northeast HamXposition @ Marlboro 2021 - Sept 10-12

    I'm getting mixed feedback from my ham friends and groups. Some are going. Some past regular attendees are not (afraid of covid). I expect this will translate into lower attendance and a reduction in displays. I am personally not going because the face diaper requirement is in effect. You...
  6. Northeast HamXposition @ Marlboro 2021 - Sept 10-12

    I wouldn't read too much into a slow Friday. Friday's were always slow at the old Boxboro location as well. Saturday was always the big day with Sunday a close second.
  7. Northeast HamXposition @ Marlboro 2021 - Sept 10-12

    I'll be skipping it.
  8. Mass guys with LTC's... do you carry .45 or 9mm?

    I don't think magazine capacity is quite as important as everyone thinks it is. Magazine swaps can be accomplished fairly swiftly, if you train for it. You do carry a spare magazine or two, correct???
  9. Called out for not wearing a mask

    Speaking of masks in the hospital setting, I visited my 92-year old mother in the hospital yesterday. I had to laugh at the staff. They were constantly taking their face diapers OFF when it appeared that only co-workers were around, then scurrying to mask up the moment an outsider was around...
  10. Called out for not wearing a mask

    The wife just reported that all of the dorks working at Walmart are wearing face diapers today.
  11. Detroit - police drive away from a drive by shooting

    I expect more of this behavior...........................a lot more going forward.
  12. 80 Percent Glocks (Polymer 80)

    I laugh (and cringe) when people spout this as if it was gospel. I have a number of guns, including a couple of carry guns, that will never appear in the database, but that is due to the incompetence of the MSP and the Commonwealth. They let all the old "blue cards" get damaged and those...
  13. ****Breakjng**** Multiple People Shot in Winthrop MA

    This story gets better by the minute!!!
  14. ****Breakjng**** Multiple People Shot in Winthrop MA

    You guys MAY have this backwards. Maybe the shots preceded the vehicle accidents. The accidents could be a result of people trying to flee.
  15. Moving out of MA - Change of Address (yes, another thread about that...)

    If worried, handle it as a cancellation by mailing the LTC to the licensing officer with a note that you want it cancelled/expired and say nothing more. The wording of the Mass statute assumes you are staying within the confines of the Commonwealth and want to retain your LTC. Don't over-think this.
  16. Called out for not wearing a mask

    Have her file for disability??? Worker's Comp claim???
  17. Called out for not wearing a mask

    I am having ZERO problems with masks. I discuss my "mask policy" with every client who calls for my services. My mask policy is.......................I do not wear a mask, period. A recent example happened earlier this week with a hot tub in Canton, Ma. The hot tub is located on a deck at the...
  18. Called out for not wearing a mask

    Same here. We've gone into the post offices in Dighton and Rehoboth during this entire hissy fit. The Dighton employees looked a little funny, but said nothing. The Rehoboth people clearly did not care.
  19. Called out for not wearing a mask

    I had a visit with my elderly mother yesterday. She is surprisingly spry for her age and gets around quite well. She drinks the covaids kool-aid though. She has had her experimental shots. She has dutifully worn, and continues to wear, her face diaper everywhere she goes (and I mean EVERYWHERE)...
