    EARL51, yep we have the wet sand area so far. But park rangers have say over the land part of the parks, some will let you detect, some flat out won't, unless there has been a request to find a lost item by the loser of said item, to the park ranger, who can then ok the search.

    On the gun ownership, you can own them legally but need to apply to your local police dept. for gun permit.

    Calm down Captain, now don't get yourself all upset, we just have to watch them like hawks.

    We already fired a shot across their bow!

    Ok, this thread still is open so I will post the law:

    302 Mass. Reg. 12.04
    Section 12.04 - Rules of Conduct on DCR Properties - Generally
    (12) With the exception of coastal and inland sandy beaches, no person may use or offer for use metal detectors, except with permission from DCR personnel, for the purposes of locating lost personal property.

    (DCR being the Massachuestts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

    So coastal and inland sandy beaches are ok to metal detect. What is all the argument over?

    here is where I got my info:

    Thank you so much pulltabfelix, for posting the info.

    Baldwin and Owais77 welcome to T Net.
    This occurred a few years back, but it could pop back up at any time.
    Seems the powers that be don't want we who swing metal detectors finding and removing what they consider antiquity, anything 50 years or older from public lands, even tho we are the public. That and they think we are having way too much fun!

    Most rules regarding metal detecting for different cities and towns and places can be googled from their web sites.
    A talent beyond me, thus all the help from members.
    So we still have the beaches.
