    am wanting to purchase a quality metal detector at a fair price but in reading many forums and articles; it seems that there are a lot of counterfeit machines on the market. What are some of the reputable dealers that only deal in certified branded detectors and equipment? I'm looking to purchase within the next 5 days. Really interested in the Minelab Equinox 800. Thank you for suggestions on great dealers to work with.

    I think Gerry at https://gerrysdetectors.com/ may have a good used one for sale, he is a multi line dealer.

    a hip stick would be a good item for @Doc to produce for us here in the U.S i can get one from miners den in Australia but the shipping is like $50 to get it shipped to Arizona

    Make your own.  Use a Arrow shaft.  I would add a paddle from a holster tom the ball socket end to make it more comfortable.

    That sounds like my old hunting partner, the legendary Smokey Baird; he told me the exact same thing when I first met him at Rye Patch nearly 24 years ago…has it been so long?!

    Yea I have no idea what his name was.  That was one of my worst planned out trips ever, but I did enjoy driving through NV.  Goldfield kind of gave the creeps for some reason.   Stop at Gold Basin on the way back I did find gold there not enough to pay for gas.   Overall I can't complain about the trip.

  4. I have been to Rye Patch once, probably 15 years ago or so.  I had no idea where to go while driving around I ran into a older gentleman sitting on his tailgate.  So we talked for a bit and he gave me a pointy finger.  He told me to keep an eye for those cubes and crystals.  He said when you find those together you should find gold there also.  I didn't find any gold but it was a nice drive. LOL

    I tried it and it seems to work so now I just lay down the detector as is when checking targets. Does this seem like a good practice?

    I can't answer this since I don't have an Axiom, but I did remember reading this from Steve.  It's the second post down.
