    Found my first piece of gold

    I went out determined to get a gold band today, my strategy finally worked. It isn't much, a cheap one from walmart but it's about 1.75 grams of 10K...I'll take it!!

    Although I have other gold stuff listed on my profile this is my first time finding it with a machine. The other pieces were just from sifting sand.

    I KILLED THE CLAD TODAY. This is my new best for one outing. $16.79.... didn't use a digger for a single target. Was detecting the pea rock again where everyone exercises. I would just kick up a hole with my foot, then bend down and grab whatever it was. 30% of the coins were on the surface and I would notice them when I would go into pinpoint mode.

    There's gotta be another band there. I searched 3 of 10 exercise areas today and that was only in one direction.

    Hillbilly,

    Amazon, as part of an acid test kit.
    My scale for reloading is much more accurate but I only use that for powder, dont want any contaminates in my casings lol.
