I was thinking maybe it would be a good Idea for us to do a layaway plan for people that want detectors and can't afford them right off.
I would charge no interest and no catches.
When I was a kid I loved to fish and always wanted a good fishing rod but couldn't afford one.
I met an ole timer who built them. I mean Good ones. I stressed to him while visiting his shop one day, "maan, I would love to have one of those"
He built me a rod and let me make payments. When I paid it off he presented me with my custom steelhead fishing rod. I'll never forget that.
Maybe I could help people someone out like this.
what do you think?

Sounds like a good idea to me.

Sounds like a great idea 4-H. Seems asthough it would tie up some money if you had some high end units sitting on layaway. But its great if you can do it.

You could have a waiting list. Take down the names of the people, and receive payments on say up to three member layaways at a time. And keep the others on a waiting list, as soon as one person has theres payed off move the next person in line up the list to start receing payments on a lay-o-way. And you would need a few rules.
A few examples.
1. Agree to pay weekly, or Monthly.
2. Lay-o-ways need to be payed in 3-6 months.
3. Only one item at a time.
4. Nothing over $1500.00 in value, or less.
5. Must have some form of income.
6. Over 16 years of age, with parents permision.
7. Regular participant , and good standing member of T-net.

When I was about 14 I bought a $350 Stereo that way, and at 24 a $500 watch. If it wasn't for a payment plan I probably wouldn't have been able to get either. The watch was a super deal so glad I had that choice because it would have sold before I would have been able to save the extra. (I walked in with $250)
So I can't see why detectors wouldn't be a good idea.

I think that is a great idea as well. Some people cannot drop the big chunk all at once. I I would be interested to hear how it is going after a month or two.

That's actually how I was able to purchase my new detector that I got a few weeks back (Minelab Explorer XS)... the guy said it was alright if I wanted to break down the cost of the $800 into $200 payments each month. I actually ended up sending him two $300 payments, then a $200 payment for the last one. It really helped out alot, because I still had my other bills & such to pay for. It would definitely help when it comes to machines that are a little more expensive like that...
Rom. 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
Rom. 10:10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
