    Be extremely careful

    Hi All...
    So today was my 3rd hunt for the year due to the weather up here, but after 45 minutes I just packed-up and went home the rain did-not help either,
    more and more i'm starting to find needles "syringes" in public parks above the ground or just about 1 or 2 inches below, so reminder, especially newer diggers be careful don't just shove your hand in the hole use a tool of some kind to identify the object before handling it.
    I understand that we will run into stuff like this especially in the UNITED STATES because we don't have a needle exchange program like they do in Europe, but man, all day, I kept thinking about a kid finding it, more and more I'm running into this problem.
    Stay Safe All and keep an eye on those kids...."its sh$$ like this that Pi$$ me off".

    Hi All

    I don't tend to find many cartridges up in here in Mass unless I'm out hunting lol, but more and more these parks and beaches are becoming a refuge for crackheads who have no consideration for society around them, what I don't understand is people will call the cops on us just enjoying a hobby that does not hurt anyone but these people sit in parks or beaches doing drugs and no one calls the cops on them....

    I don't understand how a lot of folks can live in a few of those New England states with all their silly rules and regulations.

    I found one in the wood chips of a tot lot last year. My kids were with me playing along with a half dozen mothers and kids. I made sure they all saw what I found, metal detecting defiantly got a good name that day.

    I saw so many syringes (just on the surface) at an old park I tried, it made me want to leave. That park is so shady that you need a witness or bodyguard to be near you the whole time if you are there, back in the 1940's I read that it was the place to be and on a hot summer day everyone would come down there. Now it just went downhill. It's sad because it could be a good park and good place to metal detect but now the huge pond where people would swim is full of tires and trash and was closed down many times a year due to health reasons. It's sad that people are doing that, finding those needles are just disgusting, same with those handmade pipes. I just throw anything like that I find as far in the bushes as I can.

    Lol, I have had that happen. I found a pocket spill of huge cartridges, all live. There were four of them, two or three inches long each. I was just thanking god that my shovel never hit any.

    I have found more than a few synergies while hunting. I get rid of them in a manner that no one will be harmed. I told a kids baseball coach one time and he said they find them all the time on the field, a real shame.
    I'm just waiting for the live grenade! Lol!

    Whoa. I'm in New Bedford. We have a severe heroin problem in our city so I tend to wear heavy gloves while detecting.

    Uhhhh... What's the next step here... Are we competitors?

    I've never come across a needle before. But over the years I have dug, at the least, 50 rounds of live ammo. At the least. The ammo doesn't bother me, but id sure hate to dig a needle. You never know what you will find tho. But its kinda good when half your neighbors are horse and buggy dairy farmers. I guess a vetinary needle is possible around a farm.

    yea its sad but more and more you are starting to see in large city's, I was talking to a friend of mine in NJ they have the same problem.

    Competitors lol, no, to much area to search, we can keep the dueling pistols on standby.
