    I'll keep the lead in bullet form but I think that even common metals will be hard to come by after a long term event.

    I an still trying to hoard as much lead as I can get. Right now I've got about 35 lbs. But I don't feel right bartering with something that the same person can then turnaround later and use against me. I've heard of others willing to barter with bullets, but if would have to be VERY desperate to do so.

    I finally got to a point where we feel fairly comfortable. A little over $400 is put away in a couple of places in the home. About 1/2 in folding money and half in coin.
