    The life of this thread, Jerry, simply brings the issue up because several people are really concerned... and maybe opinionated. That is to say, the Tnet serves many levels of detectorists so many many issues seem to pop up over and over again. I don't mind the redundancy because I really enjoy passing on what I know to the newbees. I too am opinionated but try to make it sound like knowledge passed on. TTC
    Hi Terry, part of what I was referring to is this started over a lost holster for a Propointer and seems to have morphed into something else entirely. The title of the thread seems to be trying to convey the impression that Garrett is not a good company which is something that I do not agree with. Not everyone is going to like any particular brand for one reason or the other and I understand that. At the same time people need to take some responsibility for their own actions and learning the hobby and look inward. Not everything that happens is someone Else's fault.

I called back later and they did indeed sell them separately...

    For a whopping $30.00!!! Is that insane or what?!?! I had every intention of purchasing one. Figured a replacement would be $5, maybe $10...but $30 for a little black holster. Give me a break

    i use a bucket to carry everything, after having an ace 250 and fisher f2 i now have a cutlass tesoro that beats the stuffing out of both the 250 and f2. but as every one has said you cant beat the garrett pro pointer. witch is well worth the 127.00 dollars.

    Dozens of ways to skin a cat.
    Dozens of ways to deal with a lost holster.

    While $30 is high for a holster, they may not sell enough separately to charge less.

    I'd also check police/fire equipment sites for all the various belt holders...Pretty soon you'll have to have a 60" waist to be a cop with all the equipment they have to carry on their belts anymore....

    As for me, I'd just make a new holster out of leather.

    You will dig trash. Get over it.

    Re: Garrett SUCKS!!!

    I love Garrett and I'm sorry you're not getting the service you hoped for. Here is a possible solution for you and actually I think it's pretty nice:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bracket-Garr...item4ab3b26779

    It's a bracket that holds the pointed right on the shaft. It's a little more weight to swing but it could be a consideration for you.

    Just trying to help.

    Re: Garrett SUCKS!!!

    Lets do a review of what we have learned:
    You lost your holster.
    You lost your pinpointer.
    You don't have the skills to improvise another method of carrying a pinpointer.
    Garrett sucks.

    The button on the carrying case is metal. Retrace your steps and find it with your metal detector!

    Re: Garrett SUCKS!!!

    Gees,

    I thought it was an ace 2 fiddy complaint.

    No

    any company that doesn't give you a cover for the loop on purchase ,yanks my chain. or you

    buy there loop for 250.00 bucks and it still doesn't come with a cover.

    what is the deal.

    I can see if you had to replace one.

    but from the get go.

    does tesoro detectors come with loop covers.

    or is it an option like every other company.

    .................................................. ........................................liftloop.. .....................................
    I hate to discriminate but some times you have too!
