    First Wheatie & more Korean war relics

    I finally found my first wheatie 1948 D. I headed to the far end of the base about a five mile walk(one way) spent abount five hours following old trenches from the Korean war.I found three 50 cal shells, fired of course. But as I was coming up from one of the hills, I got a pretty strong signal about 8 inches down found three more 50 cal shells, LIVE ONES!!! I was very hesitant to even touch them. I moved them to a safe area and just sat thinking damn!! I should have brought my camera and I had no plans on carrying them out of there, NO WAY!!! but the thought did cross my mind and then I thought, What if they go off in my bag? or my hand. No more MDing and I can't risk that, what would my detector think of me. I am going back tommorow to get some pics of the area I hunted and pics of the shells. I'll keep everyone posted.Be safe out there.

    Hey Bakun

    Thanks for sharing your excitement.

    metal detecting is like deer hunting... some of it involves luck, but most involves patience and putting in the time.

    The more you hunt then the better the chances. Also hunting where the trophies supposedly are is an art all to itself. There are some real masters of this arcane science that post here... so just by reading their posts which can give a person phenomenal increase in the experience realm which would take years to refine on their own... if it were not for the old pros who are posting here.

    And in the end, the love you take
    is equal to the love you make

    I was an S-4 in Korea for a security forces outfit for a year... I can tell you the entire peninsula and especially the bases are thick with buried ordanance... PLEASE be careful.
