    ive been metal detecting for about three weeks. and in those three weeks i bought a harbor freight $45 metal detector, the next week i found a dealer in nj and he sold me a garret ace 250, then the third week i researched so much i bought a minelab safari. i know... i went crazy. but this is my first really old find with the minelab!!!
    i am addicted... i really cant stop, every day after work and on my days off... oh boy here we go
    so.... i got a liberty nickel from 1900, an old skeleton key, .50 bmg round, .30 cal round, and a civil war era .57 cal bullet... the .30 and .50 cal were found on a beach, and the lead bullet and coin in the mountains... and i think its funny and appropriate i found the bullets, as im an avid shooter/hunter

    The .30 and .50 are probably from world war 2 training on the beach. Look at this, me and my friend Brian found these last year on North Carolina beaches.

    wow! you guys got a ton of stuff...... yeah i figured they were ww11 bullets. they arent deformed so they were obviously shot on the water... the .50 cal was a tracer round too..

    Grats on your V nickel find.Hope are you liking the Safari. How are you running your sensitivity setup? And what coil are you using? I find myself running the FBS800 coil most of the time and sensitivity around 5 mostly. CARM

    "i am addicted... i really cant stop"

    It gets much, much worse. ;o) But it's a healthy addiction - enjoy it!

    Wow! Congratulations
    It is addicting. I find myself sizing up land all the time and looking for old houses and old trees. Haha! And that is always followed by "i'd like to metal detect over there." lol My kids laugh...

    Good job on the V Nickel. I have yet to find one. Minelab makes a mean detector. It just might be the last one you'll ever buy. Unless you decide to step up to the Etrac. Good luck on you next hunt.

    i thought about checking some places here in newark. i live in the ironbound and i dont like to venture to other sections. newark can get pretty bad on the outskirts of the ironbound. branchbrook/weequahic park? forget it, i wouldnt be caught dead there...and if i did go, i would probably be dead or detectorless very fast. though the guy i bought the minelab and garret from says hes been going to those parks. i told him he's crazy, i live in newark and i wouldnt go there.....lots of history, yes, ruthless wannabe gangs....yes as well.
