    I typically run that route if I'm just using my small digger. I can carry the small digger and pinpoint in one hand and swing with the other. Its much quicker that way.

    Lately Ive been using a bigger shovel, so Im still working on the best way to have the small digger/pinpointer and big shovel one me...its not easy

    In my left hand with my digging knife, but I store the pinpointer in my Freeloader pouch.

    The reason i asked this was to see if any had it strapped top there legs. I find it very awkward to have it on my right side belt. When i kneel down it is a bit awkward to get it out. and like some have said some times you bump iy with the detector.

    On my Minelab Explorer SE and II, I use an in-line probe! For all other situations one Garrett Orange carrot and Black II pin Pointers both secured to my finds bag with expandable cords, so not to loose.

    I wear jeans when I hunt so I just put it in my front jeans pocket. I have a small coiled lanyard with a D ring and attach that to my belt loop. this works for me and the pinpointer is always handy and never gets lost. If I forget to pick it up after I get up, i just pull it up by the lanyard. since the pinpointer is in my front pocket it does not get tangled up with my swinging arm since I am right handed. My finds pouch is on my belt on my left side.

    Works well for me.
    Did you just slide the belt loop over the arm cuff? Or how is it attached.

    Since it "requires" an answer . . . I refuse.

    I do this for fun. Not by mandate.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.
