  1. I can't wait until Lunk gets ahold of this GPX 6000 machine. Pretty soon Arizona will be outa Gold, it'll all be in Lunk's poke, or Gerry's, but Lunk puts in more time, 😂 at least in AZ. Gerry hits Idaho the hardest. Good luck out there fellas, you two are tearing it up.
  2. While running the GPZ7000 with the 15” coil, I can find some amazingly small gold, but pin pointing that same find can suck a lot of time, and I’ve had to give up a few hard to isolate Find’s. So I know a good pin pointer has become a must have. My solution & the absolute best pin pointer I’ve ever used is the Gold Monster 1000 with it’s smallest coil and a shorter shaft... (to fit in my backpack.). Now I’ve only tested it against the Minelab Pro-Find 35 & the Garrett Pro “Orange Carrot” Pin Pointers, and that has only been for gold. The ML P-F35 is great for coins, and mul
  3. God bless you Klunker, but I think you need to get outa that COVID cave and grab some fresh air. You are gonna need some serious aid soon otherwise, given all that diesel “Cat” contact. Frankly - if we all don’t leave our caves soon, it’ll be us that need that aid sooner than later. 🥴. D
  4. You rule Allen! Best stateside nugget I’ve seen in while, short of the ones Jerry wears in his mouth when he hits a good one too. Congrats 🥳 on your sticking with it. Great!
  5. “Holy imitation Batman” same size buys me nut‘in’. Crimineee, all this wait and only 12”! Cancel my order!
  6. And - Very well done video! Your production methods are very professional, which leads me to believe you are a professional. Thanks for your efforts and we all look forward to your future productions. Keep it up!
  7. Well thank you, and thank God somebody “out there”, has some sense left. Locking us down too, just made no sense at all. Whom exactly, would we be a viral threat to out there. Most of us are loner’s, keeping to ourselves (other than our immediate family members), rarely mixing it up in crowds while we toil at finding our precious metals. It’s way past the time for kicking up some dust, and swinging our disks. MN90403 - Thanks for dusting me off a bit here.... It may be a lot hotter out there, but this fella is packing up the trailer, ATV, and detectors to go kick some dust.
  8. Congrats Lucky. You’ve done what we all need to do...... escape from the caves, and check out our hot spots. Kudos to you all at the X-spot
  9. RIP Fred, You were both a neighbor in our MD interests, and in our our home base - San Diego. As has been said so often in this thread, we will miss your input, feedback, sensible knowledge and comments. I just wish we had talked more often while you were so darn nearby. Sincere condolences to your family, and thanks for sharing Fred with us.
  10. Doc, Congratulations on achieving what you wanted to achieve with the SAGA Swing Arm Guide Assist, as well as the coming scoop. Now, how do we get one of each? There’s no mention of these new items on your site. Knowing what you’ve gone thru in developing your new tools, I’d imagine you may not have the products in stock yet, so let us know when and how much. Put me on your list, and thanks for your stories about these new tools.
  11. Any word on the cost, the specs, the weight, the extension cord (perhaps it’s the scale/size of this coil - but the cable does appear short).
  12. Further proof, the GM is a dynamite detector, certainly in the right areas. While suffering from great depth ability, the GM’s weight and sensitivity enables you to confidently “prospect” the harder to reach areas without the backache. The GM rivals the GPZ in finding the smallest of nuggets, but without some of the larger detector’s penalties. My wish was to know a bit more (from Gerry or MH) about what the conditions were that MH was detecting in. His specimen finds are terrific, especially for his first outing. Hopefully he can share a bit more info (w/o revealing his location)
  13. My spare money is on Toilet Paper futures in California, that is after I finish buying more gold and silver bars.🙃 Thanks for the link Mn -
