    Work is only a diversion of time after I get bored with detecting for gold nuggets, hunting whitetails, fishing fresh and salt water, tying flies, biking, hiking, kayaking, orienteering, ice fishing, treasure hunting with my detector, beach hunting with my detector!

  1. Happy New Year 2019! I have 4 detectors I would like to see someone get some benefit from. I would be happy to give anyone who buys one of these machines a lesson on how to get started so you can go and use it right away if you pick the machine up locally. All prices are cash or pay pal (friends and family please). Cashiers checks would be OK BUT I will have to wait until it clears the bank before releasing the detector. Shipping if not picked up locally is on the buyer and will be estimated at time of purchase. Minelab GPZ 7000 ... top of the line Minelab machine .... $5200.00 Minelab SDC 2300 ... stock equipment plus 3 sets of rechargeable batteries .... $2500.00 Fisher Gold Bug Pro ... two coils: 5" round DD, 10" elliptical DD included ... $400.00 White's Gold Master V-Sat ... older tech but super sensitive, 10" elliptical coil and White's carry bag .... $250.00 AB Prospecting Gas Powered Bucket Vac ... used very little .... $250.00 Questions or pictures provided on request via a PM.
  2. Nice! And great condition for the condition it's in!
  3. How about we make it an even $2500 cash ... no trades please. And if you pick it up in person I will still demo it for you. Need it shipped to the lower 48 ... cost is on buyer.
  4. Just in time for that favorite gold hunter on your Christmas List ... Best small gold 'PI' detector out there ... and yes most gold found is small. I have found many ounces of gold with this machine. But it is time to reduce my stable of detectors. Just have too many. My SDC 2300 comes with everything you need: Detector, extremely sensitive 8" Mono coil, UR-30 headphones, Battery charger and 2 sets of after market rechargeable C-cells. (Yes you can use Standard alkaline C-cells if you prefer.) Also has the manual and quick start booklet to take out into the field as you are getting used to this simple to operate machine. If you come to Prescott Valley to pick this up I will demonstrate it for you ... It is really a quick study! $2900 cash or PayPal (friends and family please) ... or if necessary can ship at your expense to the lower 48 states only.

    GPZ7000 ... For Sale $6000

    Got a harness for the detector ... my big problem is I don't like being tethered to a harness ... Up until this Fall I have been swinging the 7000 without 'benefit' of harness and bungee. At almost 70 years old now the shoulder doesn't want to do it for more than about 3 hours now ... I like to hunt 5-6 hours at a time! Just a heavy machine ... BUT a great gold getter!

    A fun Arizona C&R hunt

    You and Dean did well ... Congrats!
  10. I just don't see much activity on the gold market in general. Even with the equities markets tanking the last couple weeks the escape into gold for protection and preservation has not been like it used to be. I see it staying between a trading range of a high of 1300 and a low of 1100 ... pretty wide gap percentage wise but I certainly can not find any reason for it to revisit the highs of years ago.
  11. Great detector and I have found a lot of gold with it. I'm getting older and this machine is just a bit heavy for this almost 70 year old. If you have been wanting one but just didn't want to pay the $8000 price tag for new here is your chance to pick one up for $6000 if you pick it up in Prescott Valley AZ or it can be shipped for $6060 in the lower 48 USA.

    3 Nugget Finder Mono Coils

    Hey George aka Outdoorsman 1955 ... I do still have the 16" coil. It is $200 plus shipping. I am guesstimating shipping to be about $25. Do you still want the coil?

    3 Nugget Finder Mono Coils

    Hi George ... Just getting back into AZ ... been in NH all summer doing my bass fishing tourneys out of my kayak ... just haven't been on line much at least with the gold forums. Anyway I will look in the morning to see if the 16 is still there ... I don't remember selling it before I left in May though!
