    Pennsylvania... but I been down here in Texas for 35 years.
  2. Dealing With DC Police Tactical Response

    It was not hard really... It was only about 3 inches under the ground. Came right out. Registered like a quarter.
  3. Has Anyone Had Any Success Intentionally Searching For Meteorites With a MD?

    Wow 4 per year that's awesome! That right there would pay for much of the metal detecting expenses. I don't think that meteorites are worth as much after being subject to salt water but if you get lucky and find a recent fall it could be worth 6 figures. Note... if you find a meteorite on and...
  4. Has Anyone Had Any Success Intentionally Searching For Meteorites With a MD?

    That's why when searching for meteorites you want to get away from areas where humans congregate and head to the desert. It's the one thing when metal detecting you want to avoid any human spots. In Arizona you could possibly get lucky and find a chunk of gold while hunting for meteorites.
  5. Has Anyone Had Any Success Intentionally Searching For Meteorites With a MD?

    Yes I was thinking some remote areas of Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico
  6. Has Anyone Had Any Success Intentionally Searching For Meteorites With a MD?

    I have been exploring the possibility of taking it up a notch and want to look for iron and stony/iron meteorites. :headbang: Anyone had any luck with this? And... has anyone of you ever found a meteorite randomly while metal detecting?
  7. What Have You Ever Found WITHOUT the Detector, While Metal Detecting?

    Well I was mainly talking about other things you find while actually metal detecting but I'll run with it. Throughout my life I have always been an outside kind of guy so I have found a plethora of stuff from $680 in a wad laying on the ground, to about $1,200 worth of snow in a bag at a phone...
  8. What Have You Ever Found WITHOUT the Detector, While Metal Detecting?

    Check this out. About a year ago I was walking out of a store and looked down and there was a $10 bill. I picked it up, and when I got gas 2 mins later I bought 2 $5 scratch off tickets. One ticket was a loser, but the other I won $20 on. The next morning when I went for coffee I took that $20...
  9. What Have You Ever Found WITHOUT the Detector, While Metal Detecting?

    While metal detecting I have found various sight find items not found by the detector. I guess the most valuable would be a broken swiss watch that I got $50 for parts on Ebay. I have also found some nice goggles, sunglasses, and about 2 dozen fossils, mostly giant clam fossils, some fairly...
  10. Has anyone tried looking for Viking Gold in the waters?

    When an important Viking died they would put their body on a boat, fill it with silver and gold and food and swords, light it on fire and push it off into the water. That boat would sink a hundred yards off the water's edge and all the loot would sink to the bottom. Coins, goblets, jewelry...
  11. What would you do if you found something really crazy while MDing?

    Of course it is... thus you have extrapolated the whole reason behind the thread.
  12. What would you do if you found something really crazy while MDing?

    Like for instance; Some kind of ancient technology that should not exist, or :dontknow: A Piece of a UFO, or :icon_cyclops_ani: A trunk with 500 LBS of gold bars in it :2barsgold: Basically something that could bring great scrutiny upon you. You find it on your own land, and you find it by...
  13. Softball sized rocks setting off the detectors here in North Georgia

    If you are finding softball sized meteorites, you're in the money. Could be just iron ore deposits.
  14. People, Cities, and Municipalities Need to treat Detectorists Better.

    Yea one idiot with a mission can spoil the soup for everyone. Anyone of us catching these people in the act needs to be stern. Everyone has cameras now. If I was to catch someone I would clearly tell them stop what you're doing, go back and fill in your holes right now or I'll take your picture...
  15. People, Cities, and Municipalities Need to treat Detectorists Better.

    Metal detector enthusiasts have cleaned up tons of trash over the years. I don't use "Tons" as an exaggeration, we have literally cleaned tons and tons of trash up. We have virtually cleaned out MOST of mankind's pull tab littering extravaganza of the 1970s! Millions and millions of pull tabs...
  16. Do you ever feel bad for unborn detectorists?

    Nope, never thought of it, because, the way things are going in this world in a few hundred years indigenous people may rediscover Mt Rushmore and wonder what great society once existed there before them. They may even worship it. By the time metal detectors are reinvented everything from our...
  17. What trash do you find the most other than, tabs, caps, foil, screws, nails?

    Can slaw sounds like something you could get at the grocery store in the weird isle between the Spork and Canned Creamed Eels. Can Slaw by Purina. Now with 25% more starfish!
  18. What trash do you find the most other than, tabs, caps, foil, screws, nails?

    Yea I'd have to say weights but I don't count those as trash since my first hobby is fishing. Some sinkers go into the box, others get melted down and made into new sinkers.
  19. What trash do you find the most other than, tabs, caps, foil, screws, nails?

    That is so weird... I don't think I have ever even found one of those. Do you detect schoolyards a lot?
