    I watched you do that then picked up the stuff you dropped!

    Metal Detecting
    I started detecting in 1983 and there were no pinpointers then. Knowing how to pinpoint with the detector was what worked. When pinpointers started to hit the market I didn't think I needed one so I didn't get one. Finally in 2010 I decided to break open the piggy bank and give it a try. Even though I know how to pinpoint accurately with the detector the pinpointer STILL makes a big difference in the time it takes to retrieve the target. The time you save may allow you to find a few additional targets on each hunt. Would never hunt without one now.

    Exactly what I was going to say. I never even gave it a thought that pinpoints were for sissies. Man they save so much time and puts you on the next target that much quicker. Which in my mind is just plain ol smart stuff.

    Would love to hear you elaborate, Slingshot. Like, what type of target that is deep is easier to locate without a pinpointer. If you hit the item with your shovel then, yea, you have pinpointed it without a pinpointer.

    Have you ever dug a coin spill? How many times do you run a handfull of dirt over your coil before you find the last coin? Or, do you find a coin, stand up and swing over the target area again to see if there's still more coins?

    Don't listen to him az46. Try going with a loaned pinpointer and then try going again without it. You'll buy one BEFORE you go out again. I guarantee it.

    I've only been doing the sand thing for the last month. I'm not going to play in the dirt till I get my pinpointer,there was too many times that I really needed it.
