    If I make you mad because of something I posted I just want to let you know I'm very old, don't know what I'm talking about, and I've probably been drinking. Forgive me!

    I got my first detector (a Whites) I can't remember the model number in 1968. The housing was big and heavy and made of heavy steel like the 50'ties era cars. I gave it up for a while then started back again in the early eighties. This time I bought a used Garrett. That thing was a puzzle to use and ground balance. I then got a more modern Garrett Master Hunter with analog readout. I still have it. I gave it up for many years as my new job demanded a lot of my time and I had to travel some too. I recently retired a couple years back and decided I would like to take it up again. I will be 69 this year. This time I went with the AT Max. Can't do those all day hunts like I used to.

    I swear we always say we’re the same person. No one and I mean NO ONE that WAS in my immediate circle even thought remotely about metal detecting we we’re all fishermen and the taxman took away my fishing license. So after my 3 strike ($500) I bought a Bounty Hunter on Amazon ($50)on a late night buying bender. Well after digging trash for 2 months I waved the white flag and paid what “they” said I owed. That week I hit my first piece of silver and haven’t fished or seen my fishing buddies since that was six years ago. I fished just as hard as I detect 4 days a week. My friends still think I just lost my mind all over this silver spoon. Click image for larger version.

    I'm 41, started when I was 7 with a Radio Shack model but got my first "real" detector when I was 16. It was a Garrett GTA 500 and I loved that thing!
