    newbie with a $3.00 MD

    Hi all , I've been reading this website for about a month ............ completely awesome ......... even more awesome is all your wonderful finds CONGRATS . I had MD when i was A young lad, had the bug going found the usual clad and junk , but was really fun . then the md died on me . so I was done as a detectorist , until recently my wife and i was looking on ebay and found a cheapy for $40 won the auction , and i was feeling like a kid again wishing i had the MD right now . So after the auction and some coffee we went to some garage sales found a old Jetco treasure hawk MD for $3.00 i was so stoked . later that day i went out and found some junk tabs etc. and 2 nice fishing lures value about $8.00. then went fishing with some friends .... caught 3 bass .... 2 lil guys and one 2lber . come home have dinner . look on ebay again (one of my hobbies) and what do i find the same jetco i bought earlier , 2 days later i goes for a whopping $62.09. hmmmmmmmmmmmm wondering if i should list mine , well not until i get this Other MD figured out , anyways one heck of a day . sorry so long . happy detecting , find it , its there .

    Welcome to TNET! Definitely figure out how the $40 detector works,get comfortable with it and if you still want you can sell the $3.00 detector. It's also good as a back up for only $3.00. Good luck,find some stuff and post pictures.

    I too started out with a Jetco Mustang. That was 32 years ago. I've been hooked ever since.
    Welcome to the obsession.
