garrett 250 jewelry setting
Is there something I'm missing here? I set it to the jewelry setting and it still pings on coins and pull tabs, if I ues the discrim to block out pull tabe it removes one of the bars under the gold/bronze section. How do you set your machine to go for gold....silver is the same but it's usually non silver coins I find.

Unfortunatly Gold is sometimes the same as Pulltabs & nickels ect. sorry to say but if yah want to find gold you will be digging a bunch of pulltabs. I guess to put it this way is if you run in coin mode you most likely will never find jewelery/gold. Keep using jewelery mode & you will find coins/gold as I use this mode 99% of the time......Hope this helps!

You have to dig all the pulltabs to find the gold.....

I wouldn't mind pulling those pull tabs if they were attached to can filled with gold.... Since it's not I guess I'll just keep diggin those tabs. Thanks for the info folks.

pulltabs are part of the cost of doing business. however, if there are pulltabs, there were people there...people with jewelry. for me out here in So Cal...it seems that it takes between 400 - 600 pulltabs for a ring. pull tabs suck...but with each ring, i forget all the pulltabs i dug! i use the "jewelry mode" 90% of the time. when i get worn out i use the custom mode for cherry picking.
