Hi Everyone
« on: February 03, 2017, 20:07 »
I am brand new to this Sport and this Forum.
Brought my first detector 3 months ago after much procrastination. (CTX3030)
I love all the coins and medallions that guys and gals have posted on this forum.
So far i have only been to the beach looking for rings and coins, but after a couple of months i am over halfway towards the CTX paying for itself in modern coins.... Now to find some old stuff.
I work at sea on a patrol boat. (Not Navy)
I work month on month off so i will have lots of detecting time. Except for school holidays .
Look foward to chatting with you all

Sweet work roster. :)

My son and I are new to the forum as well as to metal detecting. We don't have any beaches out here so we just hunt in the parks.

I have a nine year old son too Mav,
I brought him a and his older sister a Gofind 40 for Xmas. He's Hooked already.
He is finding stuff too.
One day we were not able to get to the beach so he detected in the driveway..... Found 4 coins to the value of $4 Should have seen the smile on his face.........Fantastic
Good luck to you and your son

Yes my boy is the same way, I trained him on the Go 40 in the back yard by planting coins all over the place and told him to search and dig for them. :) Cheeky beggar wanted to keep the money too. lol

Will be taking him out to the Altunga Gold Fields when the weather cools down a bit just to see how the Makro and Nokta go with the ground out there.

Looking forward to going to our beach house with him this year and getting down onto the beaches to se how we go. :)
