Al,  You are certainly welcome my friend.  Good knowledgeable dealers such as Steve (in the day when he was one) Rob, Chris, Doc and a couple others all have the same goal and passion.  To promote the hobby of metal detecting and help educate those who desire to learn.  Back in the 80's I realized I enjoyed helping people with metal detectors and so a few years later, turned it into a very successful business.

Downloads fine but at 4.25 mb it can take some time on a slower connection.

Realize this is almost a 10 year old article and some things might have changed, but take what you can from it.

Enjoyed the article.  Thanks!  From your comment above I'm wondering about this quote from the article:  A good detectorist will be happy to dig plenty of lead bullets and .22 shell casings; however his pouch will have hardly any iron at all.

Still your feeling today?  IB, PI, ZVT?

GB,  Yes I feel the same when hunting Tailing Piles.  Depth is like a double edge sword and when hunting TP's as there can be some big iron at extreme depths.  I would rather have a lighter detector with decent iron discrimination than a PI or ZED.  Now if you find a pile that is loaded with nuggets, it is always wise to go back over that same pile with the deeper PI or ZED.
