  1. What Inspired you to Metal Detect?

    This post jogged my memory and I recalled a toy I had in 1st grade 70 years ago! I don't remember just what it looked like but it buzzed when you got it near metal. Talk about dredging up old memories. In 1990 a friend and I each bought Whites detectors and started detecting old farm sites...
  2. ✅ SOLVED help identify this bullet

    It would not necessarily need to be distorted to have been fired. I found some pristine .45s which were stopped by deep snow when shooting at ground targets the previous winter. Yours seems to have riffling grooves so it was definitely fired and the white is oxidation of the exposed lead.
  3. Moved from Pa. to Colorado

    Good catch on the updating. I'll check that out later today and update my location. Thanks
  4. Moved from Pa. to Colorado

    Hi, We left eastern Pa. and now reside in Boulder Colorado. I have a gold detector, a relic detector and a sluice box plus other prospecting equipment. I just love finding stuff and am anxious to get out and start searching now that we are settled in here in our new home. If anyone out there...
  5. LDMA Membership For Sale $2000 +...

    So back to the point...are you selling your LDMA membership?...do you still have it?...how much in total? I'm intrested, PM me if you prefer.
  6. Heading to Jersey Shore?

    I've got an old eagle ll SL, a GMT and a waterproof Surf. For the beach I will always bring the Surf. It's waterproof so no salt damage and it was my first machine back in '90 and it still runs like a clock. I'll watch the weather and call you on Friday. If this storm lingers too long I may...
  7. Heading to Jersey Shore?

    The incoming storm looks to be a big sand mover. I've never made it to the shore on the heels of a storm like this but I'm ready to go. Fresh batteries, fuel efficient car, motivation...I've got it all but I'd like to go with someone with more experience. I'm in Eastern Pa. (Kutztown, Berks...
  8. Lookout, here they come!

    Here in Pa. someone has just started to air a commercial where they will sell you the secret by which your bank MAY give you FREE Silver! From the wording, it is pretty obvious that someone wants to tell people about CRH for a fee. I guess if you're too lazy to profit from the effort of...
  9. Anyone Have A different Opinion?

    I have hand-carried specimens to the Colorado School of Mines and they have been most gracious in identifying them for me. I just went to their spectacular, free museum and showed my finds to the student attendant. Within minutes I had a whole team of students and a professor identifying and...
  10. AT Pro broke?

    They should stand behind that unit and fix it promptly for a reasonable price. If not, I would replace it with another brand. I left dead batteries in my white's over the winter...they replaced the motherboard and most of the internals and shipped it back to me like new in about 10 days for...
  11. Failed expedition

    One does not need to outrun a bear...just beat one of your friends!
  12. IRONIC?

    Mmmmmmmm, spotted owl tastes like chicken, great with an oyster dressing and glazed sweet potatoes.
  13. what is the best detector at any cost

    How about some info on what we are going to hunt for and where? I wouldn't hunt saltwater with a VLF detector and I wouldn't use a diver's pulse detector for coin shooting. One size doesn't fit all in detecting.
  14. GOLD RUSH South America starts August 2

    If they survive the spiders and snakes then they'll probably end up with some kind of parasites in their livers or guts. Maybe in a future show Dave will use tweezers to pull wriggling larva out of Todd's back. All this assumes that they don't die on the road or get hacked to death by locals...
  15. Best VLF for Tailing Piles

    The GMT hands down! This is what it was designed for and it is one of the very best for this. The smaller head will maneuver in and out of the rocks best with only a small sacrifice in depth. Your bigger coil will go a little deeper and cover more ground so the condition of the piles will...
  16. HELP I Don"t want to make a $300 mistake

    I totally agree with Casca that your question cannot be answered without more information. What are you going to hunt for? Where will you be hunting? What are the ground conditions you will be hunting in...salt beach, fresh beach, parks, deserts mineralized mountains? There are a bunch of...
  17. Dowse Assateague Island?

    Good thing we're not discussing sex! hehehe Sorry Art, I couldn't help myself. ;)
  18. Dowse Assateague Island?

    "It's not the detecting/dowsing...it is the digging." I could agree with that if it weren't for the big "rules sign" that very specifically states "NO METAL DETECTORS". And as for digging, the kids at this public beach routinely dig holes that could trap a Panzer. I don't know the truth...
  19. Anyone see travel channels"DIg Wars"

    Real or staged, I wish they would just quietly fade away and never show a MD on TV again for any reason! Out of sight, out of mind. No good comes of calling our hobby to national attention. More administrators of agencies and parkland will soon see the need to draft even more rules to DEAL...
  20. A couple of questions.

    Thanks Art. I'll print it out for future review. For now I'll just focus on learning more about dowsing with my rods. I have a great silver dowsing pendant from the early 1900's and as time permits, I'll give pendulum dowsing a try. I thought in retirement I'd have lots of free time but now...
