  1. I have been nugget detecting in the AZ. deserts for 45 years and have never been threatened by a coyote, bobcat or even bigfoot. As for snakes, if you can't jump out of the way faster than you can get your digger or 357 out and aim & shoot then u should stay home in your rocking chair. mho
  2. Sucking the juice out of it. Hey you only live once right.🤣 Don't swaller the yeller part.
  3. This is akin to the first m.d. contest I attended back around 196? put on by D Tex detectors and Bill Mahan. Only D Tex won .
  4. I bought my first detector in 1961, a Detectron and started hunting parks and old mining camps in Colo. and really enjoyed it. Started nugget hunting with a Garrett in 1983 in Az. I am slowing way down but I will probably die still owning a detector.
  5. My nemesis is the Sonoran desert, but I'm winning a few battle's
  6. I think the DD 11" coil handles the hot gnd better
  7. The Ax comes with 2 great coils and 2 more at a very reasonable price. The unique DD is special. Love mine.
  8. Do use any, tried em once. Have callouses instead. They are a pain the arse imo.
  9. Years ago before they started making coil covers we used a large rubber band cut from a car tire inner tube stretched around the coil
  10. The difference in the amt. of gold found with the 6000 over a sd used with a GM1000s not enough to justify the $. JMO
  11. I would put the money to better use than a 6000. Don't need to look for crumbs too deep for a Monster or too small for a 7000.
  12. About 25 years ago I found a 2 oz nugget in what I believe is in the same area, it too was very small for it's weight and smooth
  13. Sense I consider my XP pinpointer the best l have used it will have to do until some one makes one as sensitive as my GM 1000
  14. Your opinion as too wether dowsing works is the correct one.
  15. Why is question about whites TDI moved and questions concerning Minelab are allowed?
  16. Much of the gold I have found was invisible to PI detectors and much yet to be found still is.
  17. Don't know. Probably less than 150 . Started about 1960, have owned 7 or 8 at a time, only have four now.
