Default Unbelievable, BBH.

I almost went to Amazon to buy my new detector and pointer because I really wanted to have them by the weekend - it's going to warm up to 70 for the first time in a while. Since I have Prime, it would of been here in time. But...

I PM'd Bart of Big Boys Hobbies (hey, even though I am a girl...)on the 3rd inquiring about the Eurotek Pro/x-pointer and he was knowledgeable, helpful, and gave me a great price. I decided I would much rather give my business to someone that is passionate about the hobby, and I could wait until next week to have my MD. I paid around 10AM yesterday. I received my MD today around 10AM.

To be honest, I'm upset and baffled. It's freezing today and I can not go MD'ing. I did not in my wildest imagination think I would have the MD the next day, before I even woke up. I am not prepared!
I'm baffled because a letter I send across town takes a week to arrive sometimes.

I think I've just been majorly spoiled. Bart, expect me to come back for every MD related purchase I might do in the future. Thank you so much for your help and business!
I can't praise this person enough, if you are looking to buy something, you should definitely do so from Big Boys Hobbies.

Another great thread/feeback for BBH. BBH is what happens when a person turns their passion into a business.

Default Welcome

Don't get too excited. It takes a while to get use to a metal detector. So be patient and the good stuff will come. Maybe you should watch metal detecting on you tube to get your fix until the ground unfreezes.
HH everyone
