  1. What have you used your metal detector for??

    I was just reading a thread about a guy who used his detector to find a cell phone he lost on the side of the road. I thought that's nothing I've used mine to find metal studs in the wall. I began wondering what else have people used their metal detectors for, besides finding treasure...
  2. ITS BEEN A WHILE SINCE IVE HAD A SCORE!

    IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I'VE HAD A SCORE! So on Tuesday I was traveling through a town and stopped in a thrift store. I saw a espresso machine and thought that looks expensive. They were asking $29.95 and I thought I'll look at it later and see if it's worth anything. I took a pic with my cell...
  3. 1880 S Morgan

    I went out to a few garage sales yesterday. Looking through a table with a bunch of collectibles, baseball cards, comics, vintage toys, etc. Most were priced pretty high. I took a quick lap around the table, and didn't see anything. On the second lap I moved some comic books and there were 3...

  6. Treasure Island Yeilds No Treasure!!

    Mighty Mouse, MechTech and I all went to Treasure Island Beach this morning. We all met up around 6:30 am.
