    I like to dress extra dorky on the beach like socks pulled up with sandals on, wear a dress shirt with my camo sorts.... my daughter says you look like a dork and I said well you ever noticed how some guys dress like they are mental, thats because they just dont want to be bothered.... so now she will point them out and say " look he must not want to be bothered" and we laugh....lol

    Guess I don't pay enough attention to the others around as long as I stay out of their "area". Had lots of kids walk up and ask what i am doing and how does the detector work. Rather be the old, fat guy in T-shirt, shorts and sandals with detector than the old fat guy in a Speedo or big lady in a skimpy bikini. Those are the ones that get the looks from me "like really, you got more guts than me!" Don't worry about them, find the good stuff and enjoy the time out.

    When I first got my detector about a month ago, I went to a local park and was detecting in the 'beach' (sand volleyball nets) and soon had a crowd of small kids gathered around me asking if I'd found anything. Their moms were curiously looking on as I replied to the that I'd found a quarter! but mostly, sharp metal and bottle caps.
    The moms asked what I do with the junk so I showed them the my pouch with all of it and said " I take it so no one cuts their feet". They were thankful for that.

    No one wants to look old, and uncool to the younger generation...Some of us do fringe on the nerdy side..No one reals pays much attention to me atb the beach..Of course I dont even try to detect on a crowded weekend or anything like that...Oh, and I would wear my border patrol hat...

    If you Really want to get folks upset and take notice, go detecting while wearing a Make America Great Again hat and shirt. You may want to wear a bullet proof vest underneath your T shirt.

    When my wife and first started dating 19 years ago we went to the beach with her daughter and her good friend. They were all laughing at me as I geared up (looking like Lawrence of Arabia in all white and my big sun hat) and they put down their towels and plugged the umbrella in the sand. I didn't get 5 feet from the towels before scooping out a gold/ruby and diamond ring. My now wife slipped it on her finger and I never got a chuckle since. The ring was nice but my wife is the best find I ever made! As for the other folks laughing and staring, I'm too focused and having fun to really notice.

    Generally, those people I can tolerate. Its the times we live in which are producing a generation of people who stick their noses into other peoples' business and call the "authorities" and complain that "he's ruining our day at the beach!!!" What am I doing that requires the permission of someone I don't know and am not near, nor touching and generally ignoring? What? Making virtually self healing holes in the sand?? Removing shredded aluminum cans and poptops? I just don't understand people these days.

    Yes sir, indeed. Flying lead unfortunately keeps me from hunting certain areas where I know you could still find some CW relics. Our society has gone down the ole' Johnny flusher.
