Which is cool because of the experience but i was wondering why there is not very many younger people like me. I am 20 years old. just thought it would be interesting!

46 here. Bought my first detector when I was 15. A Micronta LOL. But that machine paid for itself a lot faster than my CZ-20 is. Of course, we actually had a beach back then.
