It’s important to prep. You probably already know this, or you wouldn’t be here, reading an article on a site like this.  You know that you need a stockpile of food, fuel, medical supplies and other necessities.

But just as important as those so-called “beans and band-aids” is the ability to protect it.  That’s where the “bullets” come in.

Some people don’t really get into the weapons and defense part of prepping. They think it’s enough to have a supply of food and water to see them through a month or two of disruptions. Their plan is to simply lay low and stay out of dangers. They think that learning to use a weapon, stockpiling ammo, and making sure your family members are also able to defend themselves is just going overboard.  They chuckle about “those preppers who are expecting  a Mad Max scenario” and figure that’s the stuff that movies are made of. It’s not real life

To people who don’t believe that firearms and a defense plan are vital, I submit to you, Exhibit A:

These shoppers were willing to trample, shove, punch, kick, and otherwise beat the crap out of their fellow man just to get a “deal” on a Christmas present.

Yesterday in his annual “Running of the Sheep” video montage, Mac Slavo shared videos of people fighting over sale-priced panties, hurling garbage cans, and someone who took  tazer to the chest over a bargain on a TV.

In Pamplona, Spain the yearly tradition is to throw yourself into an arena and run for your life as an onslaught of bulls chases you. In America, we have a similar tradition, but the bulls are replaced with human sheeple who will stop at nothing to ensure they walk away with the best consumer deals they can find. People are often hurt in both events and sometimes the annual runnings even lead to death as the weaker sheep are trampled during all the commotion.

This year the Boston Globe estimates that about 100 million Americans will head out for their annual running and they’ll spend upwards of $13 billion in a single day.

The action this year started on Thanksgiving Day and sheep across the nation looking for mega-discounts on cheaply built toasters, electronics and other consumables didn’t hesitate to jump into the ring.  (Be sure and check out the horrifying footage.)

Videos like those were shown on news stations all over the world. How positively embarrassing to be grouped in with those people who stampede like a cackle (I looked it up, that’s really the word) of hyenas  all slavering over a downed gazelle.

But there’s something bigger at play here. When bad things happen, worse things often follow.


What would these people act like over something that was actually a matter of life and death?

Now…think about this.

What if there was no food? What if the grocery store was cleaned out and there was no sign of it restocking anytime soon?  How would this same throng of people behave to get the last loaf of bread or case of canned goods?  What would they do if they knew you had food in your home, while they had nothing?

I think we all know the answer to this question. If people are willing to assault another human being over a pair of panties, they will definitely lay siege to your home if you have food and they do not.  Not only would we have the hungry entitlement crowd to deal with, but we can also add in the plain old ticked off people who destroy property just for the sheer “fun” of it. (See Ferguson, Missouri for more information about the joy of wholesale rioting and destruction.)

You can stockpile until you have a decade of supplies put back, but if you can’t defend it, you don’t actually own it. You only have it because no one has bothered taking it away from you yet.  You have what you have based on the goodwill of others, who are stronger, greater in number, and better armed.  You may not like hearing this, but you need only to check out the videos to which I’ve referred you to realize how out of control people can get.

You have to look at the psychology of this. People can justify pretty much anything when they or their children are starving. And I can understand that to a large degree – who could stand to watch their babies suffering?  But if someone can devolve to the above degree just to get $10 off of a flat screen TV that they will still be able to acquire at another time, the chaos we saw above is only a tiny sample of what is to come.

Think about the movie The Hunger Games: the violence at the cornucopia is pretty much just an armed version of Black Friday. Does this look familiar?


Some people act like this for “fun”.

Some people are just waiting for the opportunity to behave in that fashion. They’d love to act like that every single day, but they don’t want to spend the rest of their lives in jail. But when a verdict gets rolled out, when a storm takes out the power, when a disaster strikes, they delight in the chance to rob, pillage, loot, and burn.  Who can forget the day before Superstorm Sandy hit the East Coast, when thugs were coordinating looting rampages via Twitter?

I remember learning about “sublimation” in a high school psychology class.

Sublimation is a defense mechanism that allows us to act out unacceptable impulses by converting these behaviors into a more acceptable form. For example, a person experiencing extreme anger might take up kick-boxing as a means of venting frustration. Freud believed that sublimation was a sign of maturity that allows people to function normally in socially acceptable ways. (source)

If you believe Freud’s theory, then it’s easy to see that many people look for an excuse to revert to their true natures.  In a situation where “everyone” is doing something, they are able to cast off their normal control of their impulses without much fear of reprisal. The number of looters and thugs far outstrips the number of arrests going on in Ferguson, so there’s a very good chance that someone swept up in that mentality can go burn somebody else’s home or business and completely get away with it.

As well, for some folks who are on the fringe of preparedness, their entire survival plan is based on taking what others have carefully put back.  Remember that yahoo who was on Doomsday Preppers, boasting about how he planned to become a marauder after the SHTF?

“We’re not in it to stockpile. We’re in it to take what you have and there’s nothing you can do to stop us,” Tyler Smith says. “We are your worst nightmare, and we are coming.”

Smith, 29, is the leader of Spartan Survival. The group has more than 80 dues-paying members. Smith founded the organization in 2005 to train and prepare others on survivalism.

On Tuesday night, Smith’s story will be told on the National Geographic Channel survivalist TV show “Doomsday Preppers.” (source)

Not all of the people coming to your door will be there because they are starving and desperate. Some people are just bad seeds, and they’ll delight in the opportunity to be who they really are.

How do you stay safe in the aftermath of a disaster?

A few simple strategies can help you to stay safer.

1.) Don’t be where other people are.

A lot of danger can be avoided by simply staying home, and here’s where your preps come in.  If you have supplies, you have absolutely no need to go where the hordes are to line up and get more.  Trust me when I tell you, it won’t be an orderly line for long. The doors will open and everyone will want to be first.  Someone will cut in front of someone else. The food will run out before they get to everyone who is waiting for a handout.  It doesn’t take much to incite a crowd of stressed-out, waiting people into a ravening mob. (Remember those Black Friday videos above?)

Here’s a list of basic supplies to have on hand.  Remember that sometimes power supplies are lost during situations like this. Occasionally officials do this to gain more control over the populace and sometimes it happens as a side-effect of the wholesale destruction by the rioters. Keep the potential for a down-grid situation in mind when preparing.

  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Necessary prescription medications
  • well stocked pantry – you need at least a one-month supply of food for the entire family, including pets  (Here’s how to build one fast!)
  • An off grid cooking method (We have a Char-Broil Offset Smoker American Gourmet Grill, an outdoor burner, and a woodstove inside)
  • Or food that requires no cooking
  • A tactical quality first aid kit
  • Lighting in the event of a power outage
  • Sanitation supplies (in the event that the municipal water system is unusable, this would include cleaning supplies and toilet supplies)
  • A way to stay warm in harsh winter weather
  • Over-the-counter medications and/or herbal remedies to treat illnesses at home
  • A diverse survival guide and first aid manual (hard copies in case the internet and power grid are down)
  • Alternative communications devices (such as a hand-crank radio) so that you can get updates about the outside world
  • Off-grid entertainment:  arts and craft supplies, puzzles, games, books, crossword or word search puzzles, needlework, journals

Some Army friends served in Africa, and they’ve told me about managing food drops to the people there.  The violence that breaks out over those MREs they’re handing out rarely fails to leave a few people trampled and bleeding. Some of those hungry people would shove a knife in their own grandmas to get an extra ration of food. If disaster strikes here, do you really want to fight it out over a handout from FEMA?

I recently read “Going Home” by A. American. In the book, and EMP has wiped out power and services across the nation. The hero of the book is stranded 250 miles away from home, and has to make his way back on foot.  He’s perfectly fine doing his own thing, walking, and camping. But when he has the misfortune to meet up with others, more often than not, all heck breaks loose, and he has no choice but to defend himself with deadly force. (PS: It’s a really good story! You should check it out HERE.)

2.) Keep your home secure at all times.

So, you’re staying home, as per the above advice. Make your home look like the one on the street that would be the most difficult to breach.

Here are some tips to make your home less of a target:

  • Keep all the doors and windows locked.  Secure sliding doors with a metal bar.  Consider installing decorative grid-work over a door with a large window so that it becomes difficult for someone to smash the glass and reach in to unlock the door.
  • Fences and gates that lock are another deterrent.  If your home is surrounded by a fence and someone comes knocking at your door unexpectedly, you know that someone has gone to the effort to climb your fence – they probably aren’t there selling Girl Scout cookies.
  • Keep the curtains closed. There’s no need for people walking past to be able to see what you have or to do reconnaissance on how many people are present.
  • Don’t answer the door.  Many home invasions start with an innocent-seeming knock at the door to gain access to your house.
  • Keep pets indoors. Sometimes criminals use an animal in distress to get a homeowner to open the door for them. Sometimes people are just mean and hurt animals for “fun”.  Either way, it’s safer for your furry friends to be inside with you.

3.) 911 is not a viable option.

When disorder is widespread, don’t depend on a call to 911 to save you – you must be prepared to save yourself.

First responders may be tied up.  Think about the scene in Ferguson right now. How many cops do you really think are being dispatched to people’s homes? According to some reports, the cops are standing there under direct orders just watching things burn.  They’re doing nothing to stop it.  In normal situations, calling 911 might be an option – during a widespread disaster, they won’t be responding fast enough to help you, if at all.

What’s more, in some cases, the cops are not always your friends.  In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, some officers joined in the crime sprees, and others stomped all over the 2nd Amendment and confiscated people’s legal firearms at a time when they needed them the most.

4.) Be ready to defend your home.

If, despite your best efforts, your property draws the attention of people with ill intent, you must be ready to defend your family and your home.  You’ve done all you can. You’ve stayed home, you’ve tried to avoid attracting undue attention, you’re minding your own business.

If trouble bursts through your door, you must meet force with force.  In this situation, the lives of your family depend on your ability and willingness to protect them.

  • Have a plan.  This is something you need to work through with your family in advance. Non-combatants need to understand they must get safely out of the way so that the people who are armed and most appropriate to engage can do so without worrying that the children will get caught in the crossfire. Make up a drill so that you can practice with your family.  You also want to figure out the best places to take cover and how to draw the intruders into a kill zone. This will be different in every home, based on your layout and what you have available.
  • Be armed and know how to use your weapon of choice.  Particularly during situations of civil unrest, remain armed at all times. When the door of your home is breached, you can be pretty sure the people coming in are not there to make friendly conversation over a nice cup of tea.  Make a plan to greet them with a deterring amount of force.
  • Have a safe room established for children or other vulnerable family members. If the worst happens and your home is breached, you need to have a room into which family members can escape.  This room needs to have a heavy exterior door instead of a regular hollow core interior door. There should be communications devices in the room so that the person can call for help, as well as a reliable weapon to be used in the event that the safe room is breached. The family members should be instructed not to come out of that room FOR ANY REASON until you give them the all clear or help has arrived. You can learn more about building a safe room HERE.  Focus the tips for creating a safe room in an apartment to put it together more quickly.
  • Plan an escape route.  If the odds are against you, devise a way to get your family to safety.  Your property is not worth your life. Have bug-out bags ready, create rally points, and make sure everyone knows more than one route to get there.

It’s very important to make your defense plan well before you need one.

5.) Be armed.

This is the part of preparedness that some people find very uncomfortable.  Well, you have to get over that.  If an intruder breaches your home, there really are only two options: you must be prepared to defend your family or you must be prepared to bow down and be a victim.


  • Find a weapon that you are comfortable with.  If you aren’t comfortable with a bigger caliber firearm, look to the humble 22. At close range, a well-placed shot will stop a threat. It’s better to have a smaller caliber weapon you can handle than a bigger weapon with so much recoil you can’t hit the broad side of a barn.
  • Teach everyone who is old enough to use weapons. Chances are, your friendly neighborhood thug won’t be coming alone. Increase your chances of survival by arming more family members. My daughters are both teenagers, but they are comfortable with a variety of weapons, including firearms, long bows, and up-close-and-personal items like mace and tazers.
  • Practice, practice, practice. One caveat: a weapon you don’t know how to use can be more dangerous than having no weapon at all.  Take classes, go to the range, or find a nice place in the woods to blow through some ammo. If your weapon can be dry-fired, practice drawing and aiming at home (obviously, checking each time to be sure the gun is unloaded). The more you handle your firearm, the more comfortable you will be. In a high stress situation, you don’t want to be fumbling for the safety, taking your eyes off the threat, or being surprised by recoil. The more you practice and handle your weapon, the more muscle memory will take over, allowing you to place your focus on the intruders instead of “how-the-heck-do-I-fire-this-gun?”.

Here’s some advice from someone who knows a lot more about weapons than I do.

This is your early warning.

So many times, when interviewed after a disaster, people talk about being “shocked” at the behavior of others.  Their level of cognitive dissonance has lulled them into thinking that we’re safe and that we live in a civilized country.  They are unwilling to accept that civilization was only a veneers, even when the evidence of that is right in front of them, aiming a gun at their faces, lighting their homes on fire, or raping their daughters.


Accept it now and you’ll be a lot better off when the SHTF.

Look at the two examples that have occurred over the last week: the riots in Ferguson and the madness of Black Friday shopping.

Then tell me how “civilized” our country is.

  • The only day I could do the last minute shopping for Thanksgiving was the previous Tuesday. In all honesty, I knew I really didn’t *need* the things I purchased; we could have eaten from our “larder,” even with family arriving, but we tend to have a small “banquet” for Thanksgiving rather than Christmas. (We had few left overs, but a number of selections.) Christmas is just a good meal with less selections. The grocery store was packed and they ran out of things here and there. The only reason I went was past experience. In this store, the clientele during a small “crisis,” and in this case an impending snow storm before Thanksgiving. (silliness really. The snow has turned to ice, and the temps are low; it is just January in November. People should get a grip. There is only a 25% chance of a “white Christmas” any given year.) Everyone was courteous, but it took longer to get out of the store. Would it have been the same if it were a real crisis? I don’t know. I would not have gone to find out.

    Black Friday? Wild horses could not drag me into any of the stores!

    Who would have thought when I was a young mother, that even thinking about safety issues in our country would have been necessary? Life appears to be getting more and more surreal!

  • Yes. Be Armed & Aware. Pre-think of things & be ready to “shoot to kill”. The hungry survivors can drag the fresh “deer meat” away, cook and eat it.
    I’ll post a SIGN on my LOCKED gate with warnings & a phone number they can call if they really need to talk with me. (but when things get really bad, the phones won’t be working.

    I’ll put a wireless gate beeper there to let me know if anything is moving onto my property. ($25 at HarborFreight tools.)

    Grow a big garden, stock up on fertilizers, bug chems, and canning-pickling supplies. Vinegar, salt, sugar and spices will NOT be available. Stock up now (I got 25 Lbs of pickling spices from for less than $100.)
    Get 20 gallons of vinegar & 100 pounds of sugar & 50 pounds or more of salt. You can make normal pickled veggies, sweet, brined or fermented. Sugar is also for canning fruits & berries.
    Grow Chicory (coffee substitute). Yaupon-Holly (down south) is a GOOD tea substitute & has CAFFEINE in it.
    Grow fruit & nut & berry trees & vines. Jerusalem-artichokes (a type of sunflower) is perennial & a tuber-a-day will keep BLOOD sugar at bay (even works for many diabetics who need shots). One day raw, next day boiled.. raw is like water chestnuts, boiled taste like mashed potatoes. (for sugar control, NO pepper).

    Weapons? Crossbow won’t make NOISE. Big slingshot has it’s use & also 22 pellet rifle.
    NEVER use a gasoline generator (the NOISE will alert every desperate, hungry person from far away to “come and get your stuff after they kill you.) Solar is silent.

    • In all honesty, that is not what happened in Argentina. I don’t things will be pretty, but I am not so certain that it is going to be the Apocalypse, either.

  • Miss Daisy–>

    Outstanding article ma’am!!!

    ..Note to readers:

    ..if using .22Lr…choose ‘high velocity’ lead…ergo, its difficult to beat ‘CCI Stingers’ in a close range scenario…just squeeze…often!

    Cheers to all.

  • Love the 22LR’s. Easy to handle, does not destroy the eardrums, cheap when available, etc.
    There are some BIG bore air rifles out there (9mm, 45, & 50 calibre). Velocity is less than under 1000 fps (sub-sonic), but fully capable of dropping an American Bison-buffalo.) I’ve seen them at Pyramid air,, for a bit under $1,000.
    It would be easy to silence such an airgun. Can fire about 6-10 rounds before a new tank of air (recharge) is needed.

    • The air rifles are great, ive got a Marauder .25, shooting 43 grain bullets, not pellets, hollow point bullets from Mr Hollowpoint, pretty amazing for an air rifle, am saving up for a .457 big bore.

    • Thank you for letting me know. You can reach me directly at daisy at the organic prepper dot ca – remove spaces and insert @ and .

  • I’m not a big fan of air guns but can use a bow pretty well. A cross bow is good but makes quite a noise when it fires a bolt. If using a bow, be sure to get some of those rubber bow-string noise dampeners. No need for a loud TWANG! either.

    A very nifty trick is to fire a .22 short cartridge from a rifle. This is actually pretty quiet, making a thump sound that doesn’t carry very far. Still works well on small game, though. I have fired these from an old JC Higgens semi-auto that my Dad left me. It shoots well but will not cycle the action, so I have to manually cycle the bolt. Not a big deal for quiet hunting but should not be used for defense. The .22 high velocity hollow points work MUCH better for that. While not a great defensive round, the .22 is not anything that anyone wants to be shot by. IT HURTS… and this is the voice of experience speaking.

    • Those of us, by age, or handicap, cannot use a traditional BOW, but a Crossbow can be used. The “noise” made by a crossbow, is just a louder noise than a normal bow, but it is NOTHING like the report of any firearm (even the lowly 22LR can be heard from a MILE away). But a crossbow can only be heard up to a hundred feet or so in a normal, noisy forest.
      Crossbows are much more easy to shoot and doesn’t require the skills of a normal bow. Hand a normal bow to somebody who never used one, compared to handing a crossbow to a newcomer, and see who hits the target first.
      PS, I myself, and over 60 years old and can no longer handle a “normal bow”, but a crossbow is good for all who are in my boots.

    • I think your suggestion of a normal bow (and those rubber string silencers) are for “deer hunting” where the animal often hears the “string twang” and “jumps the bow” (jumps away before the arrow hits).
      This webpage is more concerned with survival, (and while deer hunting can be part of this), there is the other, more dangerous survival that will be required (to survive from HUMAN predators).
      I don’t think a felonious criminal will have the instincts & muscle magic to “jump the bow”. Therefore, a crossbow should be 100% effective against human-criminals sneaking into your protected area.

  • I’am telling you right now,YOUR worst enemy will be the POLICE GANGS and their MRAPS,they will kill and destroy every thing in their path,YOU talk about uncivized,THESE guys will make everyone understand WHY they never should have been allowed to have weapons,THEY will be used on the people and you can believe it,AMERICANS are to trusting in their government,THEY CAN’T be trusted anymore then a rattlesnake can,LOOK at what they did to BUNDY,they killed 350 of his cows,BLM,a foreign corporation,here to rob americans blind,WHERE were the police gang when BUNDY needed them,HE DISCOVERED they weren’t on his side,NONE of these police gangs are on your side WAKEUP or you will die in this WAR as sure as the sun sets and rises,LOOK at the TARGETS they use to target practice on,women and children,SATAN HATES CHILDREN,THE POLICE GANGS “ALL WORK FOR SATAN” do any of you think JESUS would throw a fire bomb through a childs bedroom window???AND BURN THEM ALIVE IN THEIR BED??..WAKEUP,WAKEUP,your out of time……

  • Actually, what Nobody get’s ?!

    Ez 14:12-23 (Explain’s it all)

    12 The word of the Lord came to me: 13 “Son of man, if a COUNTRY (Like Mur’ka) SINS AGAINST ME BY BEING UNFAITHFUL and I STRETCH OUT MY HAND AGAINST IT to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its people and their animals, 14 even if these three men—Noah, Daniel and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.

    15 “Or if I send WILD BEASTS (ie: ISIS) through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one can pass through it because of the BEAST’s, 16 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone (Righteous) would be saved, but the land would be desolate.

    17 “Or if I bring a SWORD (DEATH) against that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass throughout the land,’ and I kill its people and their animals,


  • Ez 14:12-23 (Cont’d)

    17 “Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass throughout the land,’ and I kill its people and their animals, 18 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved.

    19 “Or if I send a plague into that land and pour out my wrath on it through bloodshed, killing its people and their animals, 20 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. They would save only themselves by their righteousness.

    21 “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments—SWORD and FAMINE and BEAST’s and PLAGUE—to kill its men and their animals! 22 Yet there will be some survivors—sons and daughters who will be brought out of it. (ONLY A REMNANT WILL BE SAVED)!

    G-ds hand is raised over America!

  • Ez 14:12-23

    Jer 18:7-10

    7 If at any time I announce that a NATION (Like Mur’ka) or kingdom is to be UPROOTED (See: Ez 31:1-18 – The “UPROOTING” of “A CEDAR IN LEBANON”), TORN DOWN and DESTROYED, 8 and if that NATION I warned REPENTS (Like Nineveh in Jonah’s day! See: Jonah 3:5-10) of its evil, then I WILL RELENT (Jonah 3:10) and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. 9 And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, 10 and IF IT DOES EVIL IN MY SITE and DOES NOT OBEY ME (Like Mur’ka), then I will RECONSIDER the good I had intended to do for it.

    ie: G-d WILL remove HIS blessing and that NATION WILL BE UPROOTED (ie DESTROYED).

    Is 9:8 thru 10:4 is the JUDGEMENT “Mur’ka” is under.
    Amos 4:6-13 also DETAIL’s this JUDGEMENT!!!



  • Moral of the story?!!!
    Least Mur’ka “REPENT” and turn rom HER EVIL WAYS (ie – Sex, Drugs, Rock-N-Roll, Divorce, Abortion, Gay Rights/Marriage etc. etc. etc….) – SHE WILL BE HANDED OVER TO HER ENEMIES (ie Russia, China, NK, Iran, ISIS, etc.) FOR DESTRUCTION!!!

    And nothing short of G-d Himself, as made clear in Ez 14:12-23 – can/will SAVE ANYONE ON THAT DAY!!! (“The DAY OF THE LORD”)!!!



    • we are NOT preparing for DEATH, in your scenario we are preparing for eternal LIFE.
      your posts are kind of offputting in that there is a tone of hopelessness.
      God didn’t give us a spirit of fear but one of hope….

  • Judges 1:19 = “And the LORD was with Judah, and he took possession of the hill country, but he could not drive out the inhabitants of the plain because they had chariots of iron.”

    Conclusion= The Lord cannot be trusted to keep his word to defeat your enemies. He cannot be relied upon to defeat the 1HP & 2HP “iron chariots”. How badly would “the Lord” lose against “Modern iron Chariots of 300HP (Dodge RAM Pickup trucks) and modern “bows & arrows” (12 gauge Remington pump shotguns!!)

    Since we are told the Bible is 100% true,, then it means that “the Lord” is useless against “the iron chariots”. Word to the wise,, HELP yourself & don’t wait for no “invisible, sky daddy” to save your sorry backside.
    Lock and Load. Shoot quick, shoot good, and you won’t have to be concerned with some “God” who is a liar & a loser as revealed in Judges 1:19.

    • Not a very smart man but I’m sure he will acquire a few more skills in prison that will make him even more dangerous. I think of the points made in this article every year that I work black Friday for a major retailer. Black Friday is now a great motivation tool for myself when I’m just feeling too tired to accomplish what needs to be done. It is amazing the changes in peoples personalities at these events and if the shtf happens I will not be surprised by the changes you’ll see.

  • There is a God that watches all. Many of you who are wishing for the death of your darker skinned brothers, blaming the actions of a few on all who look like them…if you don;t repent and change your hearts and minds, you will be very surprised on judgement day… and very disappointed. If you notice in that picture there is a black women reaching out to help the white elderly woman who was trampled to the ground, what does that tell you?

  • A bit about gold. You can buy 1/10 oz. gold,($154.00 last time I bought) 1/4 oz. gold and up. The seller who has been in same location about 30 years said these smaller amounts were for bartering.
