Well decided to start hunting again after a long break. I just bought a CTX 3030. Different machine from my nokta impact that's for sure. Got to hunt a property in goliad Texas. A stone's throw away from the San Antonio river. Hunted in all metal mode. I'm a glutton for punishment. My ears wanted to bleed. I wanted to discriminate all metal after today and my long break. Got in around 5 hours these are my finds. Still learning the machine. My body is definitely feeling the stress of swinging that 17 inch coil.

Nice buckle!
Yup youz a sucker for punishment. 🤣

Get yourself a swing cord before you do any arm damage.
It will bring the comfort level up a whole lot.

I've never seen that Buckle type before. I'm guessing it's not British made.
Looks really old, but I'm several minds about how to date it.
It once had an iron pin & an offset bar, often a sign of a 19th C Horse Harness Buckle but it looks older.:icon_scratch:

Neat buckle, congrats!
Careful with over doing it after a long hiatus, easy to wind up with tendinitis or bursitis, then you'll be back on hiatus again.
You got that right!
