    Couple of comments here :

    A) Do you know of any md'r who "went to jail" for md'ing ? Paid $200 fine for md'ing ? I'll bet not. And if you COULD cite any incident of a ticket (fine) it would probably be someone who ... with a bit of research, ... could have known better (not to tromp around an obvious sensitive monument). Or a fluke or whatever.

    B) Do you know what the difference is between those persons using a gun for a crime, versus using a detector for a crime (assuming each person "asked ahead of time") is ? It's this: The gun-user didn't call ahead to ask "Hi, can I shoot someone please ?". But the md'r, who feels it's his God-given duty DOES call ahead and ask "Hi, can I can metal detect?"

    Thus: Shame on those gun-criminals for not calling ahead to get permission. Then they-too could start forums, lamenting their lacks of freedoms. Eh ?

    Sure. And the fastest way to get people to think they are "criminal" ? And the fastest way they can get them to "rush around like chickens with their heads cut off" to alleviate those concerns, is ... what ?

    Answers:

    1) make posts such as this, and

    2) rush to seek clarifications

    I hear that "hate detecting" is a real problem now and will come with stiffer penalties. Digging targets that someone of a different color may have buried is just pure hate and we have to fight that, with hate! Haha

    A detector wont do you much good at ancient Indian sites unless you have a pottery detector. They didn't use metals and bones dont ring up.

    this brought a chuckle to my morning. Thanx :/

    Yes: Native American Indians didn't have refined metals. A small geographic exception might be limited zones with "copper culture".

    And so: Detectors can't find arrow heads, beads, grind-pestles, bones, pottery, etc.... That means that .... actually ... Detectors are the MOST EFFICIENT way at NOT disturbing things like Indian bones. We go with precision RIGHT to metal objects only. Contrast to an archie's 5 x 5' x 5' pit, where they "disturb" and touch and handle EVERY single object in their path.

    Sheeesssk, us md'rs ought to be given an award for our sensitivity in these matters.

    I feel sorry for all of you who have to put up with all these detecting ban laws. I sure am glad I live in a free country.

    99% of it is "shark attack" psychology. No matter how rare. No matter how infrequent. And no matter how many people swim daily on beaches with zero shark attacks. Yet.... the moment there is ever a headline, somewhere in the world, of a surfer that got chomped . Then : Guess what every fears and thinks is imminent and "everywhere" ?

    So too is it with the supposed "everyone hates us" . And "all" the supposed bans with md'ing. 99% of it is nothing more than self-fulfilling vicious circle. Reading a post title, or a headline from far-away place that incites everyone to "rush out and make sure" for their own area. JMHO

    So true! Not counting the cost of equipment -

    Gas driving to spot: $10
    Morning coffee (after I drink my thermos from home on the way): $1
    New 9v because I forgot mine on the charger: $5
    Lunch or snack: $7
    Post-hunt beer(s): $3 or more (can get pretty high if I go with fun people)

    TOTAL: $26

    Clad: $2.06
    Merc dime (that I don't sell): $2
    2 Minie balls (that I also don't sell): $4.

    TOTAL: $8.06

    Time spent out in the field/woods/park: Priceless

    I'd still take a so-so day of detecting over a good day at work or a decent day of fishing.

    Tell that to my wife, given her 8 of the 9 diamond rings I have found so far, I wear the Fossil watch I found and my display case has lots of gold and silver rings and silver coins found. My change jar with all my clad found has over $1300 in it now. Made several very good friendships as well.

    Do you believe the Roxas story ? Never was any treasure or goodies ever shown, to be examined by anyone (other than replicas, token parts of the supposed treasure, etc...). But sure: This lack of treasure was all a part of the grand conspiracy/theft, right ?
