    No one allowed in the water after Labor Day, interesting. Oh well, at least you did not get a citation.

    Here it depends on where you go. Right now one State Park is open for detecting during daylight hours.

    I can't imagine anyone with the balls to say that. Was this at a State Park? Was this guy in a uniform? Was there any signage indicating that? If not I would have told him to F... off

    A similar thing happened to me 10 yrs. ago. I took a ride to Marconi Beach on the National Seashore after a winter storm in February. It was around 11 am the temperature was below freezing. There wasn't anyone there but me. Driving in there were no signs indicating the detecting was forbidden. In the parking lot and at the stairs leading down to the beach there were no signs. while I was detecting the dry sand, I hear "hey you". I turn around and standing 20 ft. away is a Park Ranger his holster unbuttoned and his hand on his Glock. I said Really! what are gonna do shoot me? He said you're breaking the Law. "Metal detecting on Federal Property is not allowed. To which I responded "show me the sign that says that. To which he said that they were taken down before the storm so they wouldn't get damaged and it is your responsibility to know the rules before you enter. What a dick! He then said the he could confiscate my detector and arrest me. To which I responded that I am a veteran how about giving me a break to which he said NO. SOOO I had to go to a hearing before a judge in Hyanus and pay a $100.00 fine. Not a fan of mickey mouse park rangers

    Casper, So they are open during the summer? Odd their closed after Labor day. Here it is no detecting during the summer and a few spots limited hours. Then open after Labor day.

    I know a guy from Jersey came down a few summers ago and hit Sandy Point State Park during the summer (after the 6-9 am allowed time), they pulled him out of the water, took his detector, and held him for several hours. I'm not sure if he gave them a hard time but he said he was lucky he was not locked up...He got fined, did get his detector back... Dave said he would never come back to Maryland...lol

    As former LE myself, an armed Ranger like you encountered is a fully licensed and regulated peace officer and their jobs aren't just issuing tickets, they investigate and solve crimes, up to and including murder. Same with game Wardens in most states. Though i know you knew that, i thought i'd just speak up.

    Support the blue, but don't put them on a pedestal, just doing a job we choose to do.

    The Park Police on Long Island will let you drown yourself year round. Well, as long as you have the $40 permit.

    Only time in my decades of detecting I have been asked to leave was on Egmont Key...

    I was younger and myself, GF and a buddy, had just anchored stepped off boat and started detecting...

    all of a sudden I hear a 4 wheeler and a whistle coming down from the fort... I notice he is not looking like a park ranger I was familiar with... and he was hauling arse right for us...

    This ranger screams up and slides the wheeler and jumps off yelling "get off the f...... island" !!!

    I begin to talk and he just interrupts and screams "I am not going to say it again" !

    then just a cold hard "he wasn't screwing with me look"... SO... I simply said "have a nice day" turned and walked back got onto boat... started it and began to back out.. I look back he is standing there... hasn't moved... still staring... I just smiled and waved.

    So...

    I didn't know that Egmont was a National Park just across channel from State Park I had a State permit to hunt... lesson learned... I knew National's were off limits... just had no idea that island was one... had always thought it was part of State park system.

    I'm a Law and Order guy. I fully support all law enforcement agencies. The guy I encountered looked to be 20 yrs. old or just graduated HS. In my opinion that was a very unprofessional way of handling the situation. He needs more training. What possible reason is there to have your hand on a firearm in a situation like that? 99% of LE do a great service to communities. It's the 1% that worries me

    That's why he had his hand on his service weapon. It's the 1% that worries him too, especially when he's alone confronting someone to tell them they can't be doing something.

    I can't tell you how many times i was alone when i went to confront or make an arrest and how quickly it escalated. When i had backup, they were usually a lot less combative.
