Welcome from South Carolina !!!!

For members to be better able to off suggestions on what detectors to recommend let us know the price range you need to stay within and if you will only be detecting on dry land or also in water or at beaches.

Welcome from Wisconsin.
Many here list there favorite machines below there post in there signature .
Many often list favorite finds . Some you will see are primarily coin shooters wile others love there relics or old military. Some are very savy gold hunters or beach hunters .
After some time it all grows togeather and I just love seeing it all come out of the hole .
Keep us posted on your adventures and there are plenty of great detectors . Add a good digging tool , and a quality pinpointer to the list . Try not to sell yourself short on these two little items . They are tools .
The detectors all find stuff . Going after the stuff is the work .
Dew
