  5. A very wise man once said,,,,"Git 'Er Done " ! OK , it was just Larry the cable guy but still applies..
  6. I wish it wasn't true but have been spending more time working on mom's car than detecting . I found 1 Roosie ! a 1967 . Awwwww sorry kid, no cigar . Go to the end of the line and try again ! 1000/1 ratio ,,,sounds reasonable😲 ("I'm a man but I can change , If I have to , I guess.")
  7. I couldn't decide if it was big feathers on the medallion figure's head or a palm tree behind him. Somewhere more equatorial than North America ?
  8. I envy the ground you walk on ! (as well as the pieces of it you contemplate consumingπŸ˜‰).

  16. Sweet trime find ! OMG about 80% of the target IDs here at the fair have been 16 + 17 on the Nox! Guess I'll have to start over.......😲
  17. What ? We're all a bunch of nuts? Plausible.πŸ€” But not all of us have such a nice smile !
  18. Most are covering which detector. So I'll go with accessories. An old shovel will work to start , yard sales best source unless you already have one. A plastic trowel ~ $5 , an old screwdriver ,,,or both at a yard sale again. You probably already have ear buds or headphones ? A cheap Chinese knock off pin pointer can get you something basic for ~ $25. Upgrade to a Garrett Carrot later... I found a little camera bag for finds at Goodwill /etc. for $2 ! Lots of other bags like that there usually under $5 . Small backpacks $5 for the really good ones ! A plastic bag tied to your belt would work if you're running out of budget$ OH yeah , if you're like a lot of us you can get some "Glasses of Shame" 3.25 readers at a Dollar store for those hard to see dates on coins LOLπŸ˜‰ You already found your best accessory for free, this forum !!!!!!! Ask those questions as the pop up.
  19. But what happened to the two planes in #77 ????? The crew are out looking just in case....πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
  20. Welcome aboard Soil sifter ! πŸ–– Find any hoards lately ?πŸ€ͺ
  21. Welcome aboard Ruben ! You chose wisely. Which first detector ? No easy answer. Check out Steve's Guides and other places here like the forum classified / for sale section. A few questions to help us help you. 1 What is the maximum $ amount you can spend ? 2 Is weight of the detector an issue ? 3 In your investigations , did you see any type(s) of detecting that you thought you wanted to do? (coins , relics , jewelry.....prospecting) and places (city parks and curb strips , beaches , old houses/buildings , civil war sites , etc) 4 Are there any detecting clubs in your area ? That would be a great place to actually try before you buy . (a good dealer could offer that too.) As a vet , definitely ask about discounts . You earned it and more for offering it all..... Oh , one more thing....There's a slight chance you will become addicted to this , but don't worry you're among a lot of folks that won't point and laugh,,,cuz we is too ! OOOOOH AYUH ! .
