    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting

    Buying my first detector today..

    Hey everybody! Hope all is well. I'm searching for my first md and I found a Garrett Ace 250 on Craigslist for $125. Owner claims its 6 months old but has to sell due to upset wife. Lol! Is this a good price point for my first md? I will be hunting in dry and wet sand on the beach, and possibly some sandlots, etc. thanks in advance for the advice!

    That is a great price for it as well as a great MD it should work well in those environments

    Thanks! I'm just waiting on my direct deposit to hit so I can go scoop her up. Any tips on inspecting it before I buy?

    Take some coins and run it under to make sure it works and do just a visual inspection of the coil make sure its not got big scrapes and cuts in it if not then you got a great deal
