Default First Equinox800 in Utah?

Hi all,
I preordered the Equinox 800 on 9/25/17. It arrived in the last few minutes. Do I have the first in Utah? I have Gerry McMullin of Gerry's Detectors in Boise, ID to thank for his great service and continuing support.
Now I just have to figure out how to use it effectively.
Happy Hunting All!

Thanks all, it's not in the box any more. And yes, I 've been watching all the videos of others using it. I'll have my chance at first light. Valentines Day took over today. Happy Wife, Happy Life.

Jak,
It was a pulltab followed by a quarter. Gotta start somewhere. I'm rather surprised how deep the thing picks up small stuff. But i've got to relearn the VDI numbers since I've only used a White's before this. And the detector is really light weight compared to the MX series.
Onward thru the fog...
Happy hunting.
