I was about to sell my detector less than a month after I bought it. But with Billz help, we checked one of the sights I detected and he found 3 coins right off the back, I was happy because I knew there should be some there. Took my time, listened and found my first two coins a nickel and a penny. I'm excited again, because I have plenty of places to search now that I kinda know a little more. Keeping my head up, and this forum gives me hope. Thanks all
Yep, you gotta be as optimistic as possible, I mean im starting to learn to think of pulltabs as goodies, I love to dig them
