    Hello Ron, Western States Prospecting Association is still active. Most of us swing metal detectors. For membership information you might try contacting Driller Dave. Dave Held, WSPA V. P. dheld5000@gmail.com
  2. I agree! My personal experience is: I sold my 4000, bought a 4500 and a nugget finder evolution mono coil from AZO. That combination is lighter than a 7000 and performance in the field is almost as good.
  3. Interesting video, and very well done. Thank you for posting the link Jennifer.

    Early mining camp hunt

    That nickle looks great Chris. I have never found a US coin from the 1800's. I'd swap my next nugget for a find like that. ?
  9. My thanks also! I was being lazy and putting it off. It is done now, off to the post office in the morning. Certified and return receipt both.
  10. Wishes and prayers and fingers crossed. Most of all everyone safe!
  11. Hey there Chris, glad you and the family are home safe. Looks like Costa Rica was really a lot of fun. Thank you for the pictures.
  12. Thank you for the information. That's what the forums need. A little show and tell, some bragging and the sharing of information.
  13. Me too, just saying.
  14. Congratulations to you anonymous! That is a good looking nugget.
  15. Hello Chris As you know my GPZ 7000 spends a lot of time in the field and things do wear out! It was great to call you at lunchtime Thursday and receive my order on Saturday. I will be out detecting again early Monday with your new Nugget Finder coil cover on my 19" Minelab coil. Thank you for the quick service. Dick

    Congratulations Norm!

    Hey Norm, Congratulations on the fantastic nugget and on earning find of the month form mine lab. That story is a perfect example of how important it is to experiment and learn how to get the best out of your detector. By the way did Heather grab that heart yet? ? Congrats again, Dick
  22. Way to go Chris. Nice nuggets and the spider picture is great.
