I have 2, the deus and AT Pro. I had 3 but I gave my ace 250 to my nephew. Now if we are counting pinpointers I have 4, both black and orange garrett pointers but soon to be 5 as soon as Craig ships my MI6!

Not sure why, but I do, should be at two, though.

Makes no sense to have more than a few. But who cares about sense ? It's about our toy collection.

2 DFX (dad stopped using his), White's Eagle Spectrum, Fisher F70, and Garrett AT-Pro. Sold a Garett 300. Everything else has it's place, but need to add a Minelab yet.

I just recently purchased my 2nd MD. I now have my Patriot and a Deus. Those 2 pretty much cover all my needs. I am curious about the Equinox though, will wait for the reports from the field before I make a decision.

I currently have two (at least until my Christmas present to myself arrives in the mail next week). A White's MXT and an old Compass Scanner XP-Pro - still the best notch discriminator ever made, IMHO. As long as you weren't wanting to find anything over 5 inches deep, it is the best thing in trashy areas I've used. It didn't make a sound until it hit something good. You wouldn't believe how many nickels that thing found that others had missed. Too bad Compass went out of business. I don't count the White's Coinmaster 6000 down in the basement - I only have it because it was $5 at a garage sale!

I currently have one unit and weighing my options for a second unit, come tax time.

For the spring, I have some really good permissions, that will dictate the need for more than just one type of unit!

Down to just 2 from 4. Gave 1 to a coworker who was interested but broke and 1 to my brother in law. Doing my best to spread the hobby.

I only have 2 right now but may add a water machine this summer. I live close to rivers and about 2.5 hours from the beach.

I own 2... But I'm early in my career , will be detecting for the next 20+ years hopefully I like trying different detectors but don't have the luxury of buying multiple units right now... The day will come though HH!
