  1. I have already spent a bunch on a 5000 and 7000, some years apart, I would only buy another PI if it was much like Steve described and more affordable than what I have spent so far.
  2. I'm glad you had a good time, nice to get the boys involved, that is as good as gold itself.
  3. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, verifies what I have always thought, except when I was a beginner, it could very well save someone on this forum from falling into this trap.
  4. Thanks all, I really appreciate that you all are willing to share, I have learned a great deal from this conversation. I will slow down to a crawl when I go out hunting nuggets next time (in a week in AZ for two weeks.) Thanks for this site.
  5. Steve, cool, thanks for your contributions, both prospecting and human nature, can not express how valuable this is. I remember running into you some years ago at Sawtooth when it rained for days and the road washed out, didn't know who you were at the time but I would like to see you again some day. Thank you for this site.
  6. Fred's right, the darker rock is not a meteorite for sure, quartz and magnetite. The others, not sure but not like any I have seen or found myself. The University of Arizona can and will verify Meteorites if you send it to them, not sure if there is a cost and it will take a while.
  7. Steve, to many of us looked at the pictures first and didn't see the 800 there didn't read your review.
  8. After the 4th or 5th find, I thought it was fake. looked too good to be true.
  9. i like it,easy to use, I like the ability to replace the batteries instead of recharging. Replacement batteries will never wear out.
  10. Good for you cobill, I like the 5000 also, have the 7000 too, I use both, great detectors.
  11. I have 2 VLF's, Gold Bug and Whites DFX, so I am happy with both, but there are some really some good ones out out there. If I could have a do over, still the Gold Bug, but I would have purchased the 800. Thanks Steve.
  12. I've found a couple, one at Gold Basin, 34 gram and a 2 pounder at Diamond Valley Nevada. The Gold Basin Meteorite had some fusion crust, made it a special find.
  13. WOW! good gold, hope to hunt there myself soon.
