    Do You Remember Your Old Detectors?

    Yes. My first (1980) was a Garret deep-seeker vlf/tr. I never found any gold with it but lots of coins and tons of iron. I found my first and only silver dollar with it... fred

    The Silver Sabre was by far the funnest detector I ever had...it really was a silver finder-back when every trip produced silver. fred

    GPX 5000 -- Not For Novices?

    You can learn to use the 5000! It is a very capable detector with many coil options. I personally do not think you need more than three or four coils. As has been many times the operator is as, or more, important than the detector. If you get one, get Jonathan Porters dvd on the 5000...money well spent! fred

    Accidental Find In Middle Of Nowhere

    Yeah, that happened to me down around Yuma but far from the military grounds...I just knew I had a one oz nugget but somehow it became a 50 cal bullet-maybe a tracer... I was really bummed! fred

    Well, I thought the buttons were a cool way to show agreement or appreciation...without actually writing a response. Twenty is fine with me. fred
