Default Hello from Ohio

Hi everyone, my name is Jason and I live in Columbus,Ohio. I'm new to detecting and am looking for lots of info and advise! I'm a big history buff and love anything to do with the railroad. I'm looking to do relic hunting, coin hunting and even looking for gold. Any detectors out there that do all three and is easy to use? Any fellow hunters out there around my area? Would love to hear from ya! I'm married with 3 kids and my career is law enforcement. Right now I'm a stay at home dad with my 8 month old son. Thinking about putting him on my back, and starting him out early! Thanks for having me! Jason

Welcome aboard from central Massachusetts!

As far as picking out a machine goes, consider posting a new thead in the "Detectors And Gear" section of the forums. Our excellent regulars will all be putting in their 2-cents.

No matter what machine works out best for you, remember to have fun when you get out to enjoy the hobby.
