    No one ever messes with me when I detect, but then I have a Nickle .41 Mag. with an 8 inch barrel in a shoulder holster, out in front of God and everyone. You know how gun shy the Brainwashed Pleebs are these days. It also helps that I look a lot like a Crazy B@st@rd too. My family, we ain't known for being real purdy.

    Metal Detecting
    Over the years I've had MANY instances of having to listen to people's dumb or rude comments. There's always going to be jerks and we have to deal with some of them.
    A few examples...……..one time while detecting a school yard, a father and son walk by us and the kid asks his father what we were doing and the reply LOUD enough for us to hear was: They're STEALING the kids lunch money. Another time we're detecting and a guy walking his dog approaches us and asks if WE could move to another part of the field because his dog was afraid of our "WANDS". Gee buddy, how about if YOU move? Detecting alone one time a guy walks by me and as he's walking he asks if I'm looking for money for my next meal. He got to me and I replied No, I've lost the key to your wife's bedroom and I'm looking for it.

    Nothing here, but I also show kids and people when they seem interested and if I find clad while showing kids I give it to them. I also have given kids toys I've found while out there, cars, costume jewellery.

    Hahaha! Kids say the funniest things. I sell plants and a guy bought a dormant hosta, the kid says, "dad, why did you buy a can of dirt?!"

    Like s few others have said, I hunt 99% fields, woods and old permissions out of the city limits. When I first started out, I hunted some parks and schools, never had much trouble...just the "finding buried treasure?" line...yawn. The cows and hay bales don't say much...Ddf.

We do have a concealed carry license, which I have had for 20 years, but nothing is required to open carry which I was doing as I usually do.

    One has to be a moron to tell a person who is armed that they better be in compliance with the law or they will be "in big trouble". There are plenty of places in the U.S. where such a stupid approach would wind up with the person having "a cap busted in their a$$". You've really got to wonder.
