    Thatís true there. Itís like a turd, you can paint it, polish it, but itís still a turd. I really enjoyed their Vaquero, my modded Cibola, but Iím a relic hunter so it didnít bother me not to have a screen. When I coin hunt I use my other machine with target ID. Their downfall with which a lot of companies fall victim to is the fact of having a good product, and sales, and why change something thatís already good. They didnít change the Cibola or Vaquero except change stickers from the old style, then add in the Black lineup on them both. I wish I the Vaquero back, and I might even trade my Fisher 1280-X for one in really nice shape. Cause Iím not just going to give it away.

    Well did you ever get your Shark back? I can have sympathy for a company going under but that is just wrong to not send back your machine. My next vacation would be to Prescott.

    Iíve had a company do that. It was a privately owned gunsmith business, whom I was really good friends with. He worked with me at the water treatment plant, and in the afternoons when his shop was open, and weekends Iíd go down there just to see how things were going. He passed away suddenly due to a brain aneurysm one day, and his soon to be ex wife didnít even call an ambulance until 2 hours later after seeing him suffering. Needless to say I didnít get my pre 64 Remington 30-06 back, or my 45-70. So Iíve been there, Iíve also owned almost every Tesoro since their early beginnings till the latest, and unfortunately I no longer have any of them. If I ever had a problem Rusty was always quick to get it in and back out to me in no time flat. So sad to see a nice older company go down hill. Their Compadre, Cibola, and Vaquero lineup were amazing. I modded the Cibola right after I got it, and got the Vaquero not long after, and both were killer civil war relic machines. The Cibola was also a great coin hunter too
