I had an incident similar to yours Gare. I was detecting in a wooded area (forest preserve) and 3 men got a little to close for my comfort. I had already seen them, and when one of them asked me if I had found his lost diamond ring, I knew there could be trouble. These guys were dressed like they were homeless, so when he asked me about the diamond ring (when he looked like he could not have afforded a plastic carnival ring), I slowly moved my right hand up under my jacket on the right side. They got the hint and moved off, and so did I. Found another place to detect the rest of the day.
This is another point no one has spoken of. When you dress up do you look like a fancy dressed or do you dress like your in need of money to buy clothes. I think the more you dress like a homeless person it might have a little effect on someone that might thik you have money

I can't afford to dress any other way. LOL. I agree, most times I am in work clothes so I look a little grubby and I am a big guy so most people give me my space.

A size 12 boot toe works very well in many situations,for dogs,stand your ground and put a boot toe in the dog,s chin with great force,this will flip most any dog and knock it woozy too.The same toe applied to the crotch area of any human intruders will certainly discourage them and incapacitate them so you can calmly leave the area safely.Call the cops anonymously and have them clean up the mess. No muss,no fuss.

Bear spray works good too.

True,but not as satisfying as watching the would be bad dude fold up and puke all over himself! That,s my evil side talking, I just want to be left alone and when I,m not the evil side comes out. Otherwise,I,m as gentle as a lamb.
You are a bad ars, crash.

BUT when you have 3 or 4 dudes it changes the perspective

That,s when it gets serious and the pistol comes out. Changes their perspective too,they don,t know which one gets it first. Seriously,I,m a big guy too,6 feet 3 or so 230 lbs.Always make serious eye contact with any one unknown who approaches me.If they are on the level they keep the contact,if not that,s usually enough to change their mind. I don,t do hoods,we don,t got much of a hood around here,so the problem seldom comes up.

Two years ago I had finally gotten permission to hunt a field where I knew there had been Civil War activity. There was an old house about 40 yards from where I was going to be, but they didn’t own the field. I started digging and I was finding relics everywhere. I was on my knees digging a signal when I thought I heard something and realized it was a growl. When I looked up I saw two pit bulls, one huge male and a female. They were about 20 feet from me and both were showing teeth and I knew I was in trouble. I had a pistol in my pocket and as I was standing up and pulling it out, I heard screams coming from the house and a woman came running toward me yelling don’t you shoot my dogs! I yelled back, lady I don’t want to hurt your dogs, but I don’t want to get bit either! She reached the dogs and said her dogs ran in the field and why was I there. I explained that I had permission and I wasn’t leaving (I was finding too many relics). I told her to let the male go ( she had him by the collar) so he could sniff me, and she did. The male walked up to me and smelled my hand while growling. I swear that dogs head was huge and if he wanted to bite me it would have meant a trip to the hospital, but I wanted to stay there. After what seemed like forever, I slowly petted his head and he was good, and he walked away. The female stopped barking too. I kept digging, but I kept an eye on the dogs until they went back to the house.

I’m a gold prospector not a detetorist, yet.

There was a time however when I was in a creek digging my ass off when out of the blue I remembered I left the receipt for my new high banker on the counter.... a warm came over my body, a quick check of the watch and I realized I still had a chance to beat my wife home. Trashing my way through waste high water for what seemed like hours, I’m so tired I nearly passed out from exhaustion. Just then I realized I’m the man of the house!!! No need to rush.

So thankfully I made it home in time. That was close.
