    Metal Detecting

    Hello All!

    Greetings from The Bluegrass State, home of the 8-time NCAA Men's Basketball National Champions!

    In less than 5 minutes my next door neighbor, PatFoundIt, accomplished:
    A) Re-kindling an interest in metal detecting that I haven't had in over 10 years &
    B) Turning me on to this forum.

    I've been visiting the forums for a couple of weeks and have enjoyed seeing your finds & the willingness of most to help others ID finds and give tips on different equipment, techniques, etc.. I finally decided to get registered so I can reply to posts & hopefully, post some pix of things I find.

    My weapon of choice as of now is a 13 year old Bounty Hunter Fast Tracker that I bought on eBay for $99.00. I am planning to get a new detector, hopefully by this fall when cooler weather arrives. I've had it out a few times & have tried different settings, tested coins, wedding band & other metals, but it all sounds the same especially on high tones. Hard to discriminate between trash & possible coins. End up digging everything!

    Anyway, that's pretty much about it. I'm looking forward to some rain to soften this ground up & cooler weather to get out and dig up some foil and other trash so I can help clean up the Earth! Maybe I'll get lucky and find a couple of wheaties along the way!

    Welcome from mid Missouri. That's what you have to do at first, dig everything you hear until you get use to your machine. We're needing the wet stuff over here real bad. Gave up on using a shovel. I bought this rambo looking knife from Wal-Mart garden center and seams to work pretty good in (Concrete). Good hunting to ya, Eric
