    I really enjoyed the hunt with the 40 year old machine.

    Thank you for sharing!

    That's cool. My uncle has a 1980 Bounty Hunter Red Baron 10 and still does very well for himself. Old doesn't really mean outdated.

    I've been detecting since Jan. 2001. My oldest find is a lockplate to a flintlock rifle. My oldest coin is a 1837 Capped bust dime. My best find is a T. Miller Cavalry Button. I use a Minelab X-TERRA 705 and the BH Tracker IV at this time.

    Those old Red Baron's were good detectors back in the day. I wouldn't seriously hunt an area today with one unless I went back through it with a modern detector. Try walking and hunting behind your uncle.

    If all your finding is pull tabs, bottle caps and beer cans, I've already been there.

    These lunch box detectors are still good for tot lots being most stuff ain't that deep and there's not a lot of ground to cover. They are also more compact and easier to use in tight spots. I don't recommend them for field hunts...lol

    I try to stay away from him so I won't get embarressed.
