I think most of our Coin Shooters are well aware that they're giving up some good finds. I explained the logic behind coin shooting in the other thread:

Other reasons? Some hunters have health issues such as bad knees, and they simply aren't capable of digging every single signal without being exhausted or in pain after a very short time.

For these reasons some folks are willing to concede a few good targets in order to have a higher treasure to trash ratio at the end of the day.

I say to each his own.

The label "coin shooting" and "relic hunting" is even separated here on this forum and most others.
