  1. Over $4000.00 worth of brand new stuff for half off. Hell of a deal for someone.
  2. This was a back up detector that never saw any use, purchased around 4 years ago from Columbia Metal Detectors in Escondido. Many accessories; Coiltec Gold Screamer Power Pack to include two of the 9.5x5.5 and a 14x9 coils. **It does not have the waterproof round stock coil (sold it to a guy who nugget shoot's creeks in the Motherlode) besides I'm a desert prospector. Also included is Doc's protective cover, Ultra Swingy Thingy, batteries and head set. Again, everything brand new and located in Southern California....... but not opposed to driving a few hours to meet up. Prefer not to ship $2000.00 for everything, Pm if interested Rob
  3. Sounds like a plan, I'm sure the dry spell will come to an end soon. Good luck out there and best of health Robert
  4. Hey Fred I sorta thought you and that machine had made too many memories together to sell so easily😀
  5. Really liked my T2, but that was some years ago now. You made some very good points. Perhaps First Texas is counting on the old saying; "There's a fool born every minute" to buy their old out dated stuff. Kind of reminded me back when White's re packaged the TDI SL with new paint and decals (but not a damn thing more) Good to see Garret pushing the envelope.
  6. BTW; his mini high banker works well and the best portable high banker I've ever used.
  7. Jobe, Wilson and CA Sluice Co got mopped up by Geo Sluice (Jeff). He sort of picked up the pieces from several defunct companies recently so I would just call him and see whats up. Talked to him recently, very approachable and likes to talk.
  8. Was a huge White's fan for years and owned many of their machines. Anytime I had a question just call Jimmy (Sr) no problem as he loved to talk detectors and nugget shooting. Then he and White's had a falling out (pretty sure his knuckle head son had something to do with that) which seemed like the beginning of the slide for White's. Tried calling Sweet Home several times after words and was rewarded with crappy condescending customer service or flat-out lies. Decided to keep one White's detector (Sierra Gold Trac), mainly as a reminder of all the great conversations I had with Jimmy. As for the White's forum, I vote the bone yard
  9. Ah yes, my brothers and I grew up under a very "firm hand" as well. Nothing quite like the taste of a new bar of Irish Spring soap.
  10. Pat and Mark are always trying to come up with a better "mouse trap" to catch the gold. Some ideas have worked out quite well, a few not so much........just the nature of engineering and fabrication I guess
  11. This won't explain everything but it seems like a lot of items currently built since Covid hit have quality control issues.
  12. The Ruger Super Redhawk in 454 Casull was made for such moments. The Alaskan guide's best friend
  13. Beautiful MT gold, well done. Spent the last 2 weeks in Montana, my daughter was married last weekend at Chico Hot Springs (also gold country). Had a great time not just at the celebration but hiking around the country and just sight seeing. Lots of talk of grizzly encounters and couple maulings in Paradise Valley. Locals all say a hunt for griz is long over due.
