Gun Sales Surge

In May of this year, gun sales surged nationwide, with an estimated 1.7 million guns sold in just one month, an increase of 80% as compared to May of last year!

Reopening America

Uncertainty has truly become the new normal. When the COVID crisis took hold in the US, the first order of business was to stop the spread. Various mitigation efforts ensued, and terms such as ‘social distancing’ became household words. The shutdown of non-essential businesses and public venues followed, and altered policies for those that remained running in some capacity were implemented.

Crisis & Precious Metals

The COVID crisis we are experiencing is unprecedented in modern times. Aside from the human toll in fatalities, it has affected nearly every aspect of life as we know it. From government mandated lock-downs to economic disruption on a global scale, it has exposed the true frailty of the engines that power our world. The prosperity of a functioning society is not simply defined by a monetary equation. Fluctuations and elasticity are an inherent part of such a system and typically weathered in stride. But when the life fabric of life is stretched beyond the breaking point, it’s wise to prepare for a potentially unfavorable outcome.

Ammunition demand

Hoarding is a concept that ordinarily draws little attention outside of some reality show on TV, but during uncertain times such as those we find ourselves in now, it has become a widespread issue of some concern. It all began with the disappearance of toilet paper and various household cleaning products from store shelves. Entire aisles were devoid of certain commodities. Panic buying suddenly threw the normal supply and demand models to the wind, as retailers and customers found themselves struggling at both ends of the equation.

The Benefits of Buying Used Tools

Everyone owns and uses tools of some type at some point. It may just be the basic screwdriver and pliers in the kitchen drawer, or highly specialized tool sets of a professional in their given trade. The cost of such tools can range from fairly inexpensive to many hundreds of dollars. Some may be readily available while other unique tools may be more difficult to find.

Spring is almost here!

Thursday, March 19th marks the official start of spring in 2020. Typically this correlates with the vernal equinox, which is the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator. While this may be what meteorologists and calendars tell you, whether or not it will actually feel like spring in Minnesota on this date is yet to be seen. But one thing is certain – winter is on its way out.

Outdoor Gear – Survival Edition

When we think of the great outdoors, we may picture hiking, camping, boating, hunting or other pursuit we are passionate about. We consider ourselves versed in the supplies that are appropriate for whatever activity we enjoy outdoors. But the worst case scenario is not often considered. After all, you’re well prepared for your camping trip – tent, cooler, sleeping bags, food and refreshments, check. What could possibly go wrong?

Precious Metals in 2020

Silver experienced its lowest price of the past year at $14.34 per ounce to its highest of $19.57 per ounce. Platinum soared from around $785 per ounce in January of 2019 to around $1015 per ounce in January of 2020.
