Default New to the forum

Hello just joined the forum after reading and doing some research. I'm new too metal detecting and still haven't pull the trigger on purchasing one. Just trying to figure out what would work best for the area I live in, but be able to search for and use in all different types of terrain.

Thanks

Welcome from South Carolina !!!!

Some things that might help members know what possible models to suggest is what price range do you need to stay within, and will you be hunting just on dry land or also on beaches and in water.
