    Left Fla. coast vacation whatnot. What do you think?

    My wife, who only detects when we go to a beach, has proven that experience only goes so far. Again.

    Sure, I find 4 times the targets, but in this case apparently all the Floridians left me were pop tops and pull tabs. By the pound actually.

    And my honey found a nice 925 necklace. ( I am still cleaning it, seems it has been in the drink awhile.)

    We also stumbled on quite a few bullets, most looked to be 30 cal copper jacket. A few were smaller. Which brings me to her best find( I think).

    What do you all think this is?

    Thomas Paine-
    "Government even in its best state is but a necessary evil," Paine wrote, and "in its worst state an intolerable one." Like many Americans today, Paine believed that government added insult to injury by using tax dollars in ways that were actually harmful to the public. "When we suffer," wrote Paine, "or are exposed to the same miseries by a government which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." To Paine, "securing freedom and property to all men, and, above all things, freedom of religion," were the only legitimate functions of government. Americans generally agreed, and went to war to achieve this vision.

    "People whose lives are barren and insecure seem to show a greater willingness to obey than people who are self-sufficient and self-confident. To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer “The True Believer”

    The west coast of Florida was a very busy place being shot up by airplanes. The beaches, the swamps, everywhere... The state was one big target. Nobody would ever live in a swamp, and there were hundreds upon hundreds of miles of undeveloped beach's.

    During WWII the training pilots strafed Venice Beach, dropped practice bombs on Horseshoe Beach and basically shot up Apalachicola. Bombs hit the wilderness north of Orlando and west of Miami. Nobody would ever live in the swamps...

    So, finding lot's of spent bullets and military ammo from that time frame is quite common, depending on what beach you were on.

    Yep. The beach was resanded last year, and the bullets were deposited onto the beach from about a mile out, I hear. But the pictures of the bullet I posted looks a lot like the ones I find around here, ( hint. Hint).

    Judging by the pounds of garbage I found I would say it looks like you fellas down there need to do some metal detector recruiting! Lol

    Ha. I always deploy her at the best possible moment to fully utilize the strategic importance of such a fearful weapon!

    Thanks!

    Looks like a badly eroded Minie Ball. There was a bit of Civil War action on the West Coast, mostly around Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Cedar Key.

    GOOD CALL!! I was surprised to see it, I started digging what I thought had been beer cans,,( they actually were if you were wondering), But I was extremely impressed that this bullet was deposited on the beach in the replenishment project. Caused me some deep, sandy, pits.
