    Embarrasing? How bout digging a relatively small hole in the sand on a beach and then falling into it.

    No doughnuts were harmed in the aprehension of the suspect.

    I'm amazed, that while water detecting, NO ONE advised me, my bathing suit top had fallen askew!

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    I am so glad no donuts were harmed, but the police probably took the next 6 shifts examining the evidence.

    I have...

    -showed up to a spot with no detector
    -showed up to a spot with detector in hand with dead batteries
    -showed up to a spot with detector in hand, fresh batteries, and no shovel (the past 3 were all consecutive, lol)
    -detected a good portion of a field with dead batteries
    -detected part of a field with the detector off
    -detected part of a field with a loose coil cord

    Mostly because when I first started, I got a little carried away

    I am a water hunter with dive gear but finally broke down and got a land detector. I started off by learning my machine in tot lots, I was at an Elementary School playground one friday evening all by myself when I felt the familiar push of gas. I let a huge one rip when I heard a female voice yelling at me...A little boy wanted to know what I was doing and had walked up behind me as a crop dusted him...his mom was wicked upset and thought I did it on purpose. Needless to say, I apologized and left red faced and very embarrassed. It pays to detect with one earphone on and the other off.

    I was night hunting on a friends farm around 7pm right by the highway cause we were finding alot of bullets and decided too stay out late, well come to find out some motorist called the state troopers thinking we were being shady, only thing that came out of it was a more knowledgeable state trooper cause we talked to him for about 20 minutes about relic hunting.

    I have to say, I'm at work and I just busted out laughing at this one, glad I'm working alone tonight. Sounds like something I'd do though.
    I'm new to MD and treasure hunting. For my first detector I'm considering a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV, it's inexpensive and I can always upgrade later.

    Well I must say I'm part of this thread. I have been detecting for about 11 years off and on. Never in my years did I ever use a pin pointer but when I got my new detector it came with one. So the first time I'm out with this thing...I am loving it. Don't know how I did without it! Out in the thick woods finding all the junk and good targets with ease. Then it happened....solid good signal finally. Dug down and went to grab the pin pointer....GONE! Now I am freaking out. Something I never knew I liked so much now is gone. So for the next 45 minutes I try to retrace my steps in these thick woods looking for the pin pointer I lost. Swinging my detector hoping to find it. Then....very near where I needed it last, it was found. Buried deep in the hole I refilled with only the top 2 inches revealing the grave of the tool I so treasured. I have never lost it since. A very valuable asset to my arsenal now and always will be.

    We were digging a site near a free way that saw civil war action. One of my first signals was deep do I started digging and digging and digging. Everyone had moved off and left me but I was not going to give up on the target. I had visions of cannon balls. At about 2 feet I hit flat metal. I enlarged the holes and am thinking ok brilliant you are digging up a man hole cover. It was round and when I finally got my fingers under it I pulled it up and over. It said "STOP" on it. It was a cast iron stop sign with raised letters haha. I still have it in the basement ,,, everyone got a real big laugh.
    Every time I get a new detector I practice in my yard and I always dig up my sewer line up front in the same place at the lead flange

    One time I found what I think was a KG colonial copper...wasn't in my finds pouch when I got to the car.

    Also I found a silver rosie one time. I was laying on the couch looking at it, dropped it in my mouth, and accidentally swallowed it. I then recovered it a few days later, but I won't get into details...

    This is so embarrassing I shouldn't even tell the story.
    I was hunting the local High School when I got the urge. Hit me like a ton of bricks. Like it's not gonna wait. It's coming out and you better do something about it.
    So I see a patch of 6 foot tall bushes. I had no choice in the matter. I waddle over there in severe pain trying my best to make it. I finally get in there and I find my spot. I know I'm going to be ok now when all of a sudden I'm attacked by wasps!! LMAO.. I took off running...
    Needless to say I had to go home after that.. lol Oh man.. I wasn't alone either. I was hunting with two other people. They had front row seats.
    Yep, I've done something embarrassing. =)
