    What have you used your metal detector for??

    I was just reading a thread about a guy who used his detector to find a cell phone he lost on the side of the road. I thought that's nothing I've used mine to find metal studs in the wall. I began wondering what else have people used their metal detectors for, besides finding treasure.

    Good Luck and Happy Hunting

    I used it on the dog to see if he ate a battery that went missing.
    Make sure and punish the many for the actions of a few!

    Helped people search for lost rings, and corner posts for the old ( 1856 ) fort here in town. Corners were marked by the state in the early 1970s.

    I told some annoying kids on the beach it was a body part detector. Sharks been eating kids lately… looking for remains.

    Half of everything I do today will be wrong. I just don't know which half yet.

    Back a few yrs, my brother shot a deer head on, meaning he shot the deer that was looking at him in the neck right below the jaw. We gutted the deer and then took the deer home and skinned it. We couldn't find the rifled slug....there was no exit of it. I took my metal detector and began scanning the deer, finding out that the slug traveled down it's spine. As we cut up the deer, I used the detector to find and remove pieces of the slug from almost the length of the spine.

    Years ago we were in Florida and a guy came up to my husband and asked him if he could help him find his wife's rings.He was new to metal detecting but ended up finding them for the guy and the engagement ring and wedding band were still together though she had taken them off to put on suntan oil.The couple were newlyweds and were so excited.

    It's great for Pheasant hunting - after you clean the bird, wave the detector over it and make sure you got all the BB's. Save's on Dentists bills!!!!!

    Metal Detecting
    My next door neighbor was a contractor. He and his company were building a townhouse complex not too far from we lived. He came over to the house and asked me if my detector would find metal pipes below ground. I told him that it would if they weren't too deep. He said that he had dug a tunnel under a roadway (on the private property) trying to find the pipes with no luck. I went with him to the site, crawled into the tunnel, and located the pipes within just a few minutes. He was really surprised; and grateful!!
    I also used it to find the metal markers of the property that we purchased.
