As This question seem to make most of the PM websites here is my patent answer:

Thousands of ounces and 50 guns BUT I lost it all in a tragic boating accident. Barely made it back to shore myself, can't even find the place where the accident occurred.
Doctors call it Traumatic Amnesia.

Just because I'm paranoid does not mean the "goobermint" is not out to get me.

Well then. Sure, I had some. Thought it was in a safe place. Then came that fateful day...

We came home, and I noticed the screen door had been pried open somehow, and then I knew the awful truth. It was gone.

I was catatonic for three days. My wife brought me out of it with a shot of Wild Turkey. Haven't had the heart to buy anymore since.

How many physical ounces of Silver do I have?

See if you can guess.

Some clues;

About the same as what I weigh.

It would kill you if it were to drop on your head.

The delivery man was complaing about his back.

Its a pain in the backside to conceal.

It cost about the same as a good secondhand car to change it into beautiful physical from paper. [Fresh fruit for rotten vegetables].

A few thousand ounces more than the Roger.

The 1000 oz stack begins with ONE OUNCE. When you compare yourself with the Billions of people with zero ounces, you are the Visionary. When you compare yourself with the people who Believe they have silver in the form an ETF or PM Pool---You are the Realist. You did real good at Stackin this year, Congratulations. But don't stop now, keep stackin, cuz the fun has begun. See You At The Top.

Someday having 100 ounces will be considered to be a major hoard. It's not only how much you have now, it's also how much you are going to be able to hold on to over the long run.

I guess that depends on what you consider a major hoard. To me, it would be enough to put you into the million dollar plus range, but that's because I don't have a million dollars.

So I would estimate a major hoard as something in the 50,000 ounce range, which would be worth $1.5 million.

If you use that criteria to establish a major hoard, then 100 ounces of Silver being worth $1.5 million, would represent an ounce of Silver being worth $15,000. That tops every guesstimate I've ever read.

Even if you consider $1 million dollars as a major hoard, then Silver would have to reach $10,000 an ounce.

I just hope your idea and my idea of what a major hoard represents are the same and you are right.

I think your poll was too limited and should have included greater amounts. Not speaking for myself, but some others have indicated they have stacks of Silver in the tens of thousands. I know of several that have stated they hold more than 5,000 ounces and the poll has only 4 members listing that amount so far. It is an early poll, so you may get a much greater response, I just think you should add a few more levels.

These polls are limited to 10 answer options. Tens of thousands of ounces? I think Truth was looking for the truth in his poll. :)

You've been around a long time. Ten thousand ounces could be had for $40,000 just a few short years ago. The top figure in this survey of only 5,000 ounces was a $20,000 to $25,000 investment ten years ago. Now we have people paying over $30,000 for one thousand ounces. So in today's prices, tens of thousands is a serious chunk of change. One or more of our Canadian members have talked about rather large amounts of Silver in the past. Considering the huge number of millionaires in this country, it's likely that one or more of our members is fairly well off and holding a substantial amount of Silver. I am not one of those wealthy members, but there is an outside chance that Silver could put me into the seven figure range along with many of members. A $40,000 investment ten years ago, could be worth $1,000,000 at $100 Silver, not to mention how many would reach that million dollar mark with some of these large numbers batted around.

Good flick. Especially if you listen for their prediction of the big fail yet to come.

There's a scene where they "ask what's your number - what would it take to step away?" Gekko's response is "more" and I can imagine the majority on this forum responding in a similar manner - if not, "much, much more"

I just don't feel comfortable I have "enough" - I know each person's lifestyle/level would be a huge factor but what would it take for a family of 5 to just endure (vs how much do I have)?

I look at the Federal Reserve's reports on Non Performing loans (and predict what I think 2011's "recovery" will do to that curve)
http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/NPTLTL

...and then those same banks whose Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses that exceed their non performing loans

I find myself pausing at the sporting good's rifle/shotgun section at my local WalMart - and I don't hunt.

Thanks Joe, just really busy for the holiday's and then taking a trip up to Toledo for New Year's, followed by three days in an Indiana Casino on the way back home. It's not a good thing Silver isn't going crazy like it was, but it frees me up to do other things while it's been flat lined. Have a Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I'm hoping they get back on track in the new year. I live in KY Wildcat Territory ( which is the vast majority of KY) for 30 years now. I still love the Buckeyes during football and UD during basketball.
OBTW
I recall when Dan Obravic out jumped Lew Alcindor 7' 2" at center court in the NCAA Finals . UD was the Cinderella of the tourney, lost the game ,but our 6'10" Center bested the best for that moment in time ( the definition of A Moral Victory). Dayton Daily News not only put the photo on the front page the next day. It ran the photo on the front page of the Sports Section for about a week.

You young-uns might know Lew better as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, NBA Icon.

Not bad at all milkman. 123 @ $36 is a whole different ball game than 123 @ $10. It will be a whole different ball game even still at $75.

I can't think of any reason to ask, except maybe you want to start a conversation and don't know any better than to ask for sensitive information. I can't think of any reason to answer, except that I advise people to trade the gold/silver ratio so I sort of have to claim personal experience, so I tell folks how much I traded last time, which I claim to be some small or large fraction of what I had at that time. If you have been following my posts you have that information, otherwise it's NOYDB!

Oooh! Such a tempting offer, but I must decline. The telephone operator told me these were on a "limited time offer", so that makes 'em pretty rare!

Also, the guy on my TV told me that these have "genuine collector value".

How did you end up with 500?
When I bought mine {at $35 by the way} he said there was a strict limit of 10 but for an extra $35 he "allowed" me a friend of family waiver which got me a double order.
You must have gotten a super duper friend of family waiver.

They had a special deal/option on for sophistimicated investors who wanted to trade in their gold -- kind of like a "cash for gold" type of thing.
