    $30.00 sounds like a darn good deal... I had a bounty hunter some years back, and it was a good machine.

    Fill your holes like you were never there. Good luck!

    My first machine was a Pioneer 202, basically the same as your QD2. I found lots of good stuff with it, and you can't go wrong for 30.oo if it works. The only real problem I recall was that the headphone jack quit working. Good luck, and as mentioned by others, dig everything to learn, leave the area nicer than you found it, and get permission. Now look for a pinpointer if you don't already have one. It will save you much time and frustration on each hole. Happy hunting.

    Well, keep in mind that the Bounty Hunter is just a gateway detector. Now, you will get hooked and have to satisfy your craving with more and more hardcore machines!

    I took it out for the first time today and learned that the depth reading isn’t accurate and everything no matter what it is it comes up as a zinc penny

    My advice is to upgrade. The next step up will be a legit machine capable of much more.

    It doesn't matter what detector your using. The only way to find out whats in the ground is to dig it. There is NO detector that can tell you whats in the ground. Despite what you see on infomercials, only your ears, experience, and a digging tool can tell you whats there.
