Default Dallas, Texas

Just bought my FIRST detector (Whites Matrix M6). Should be here by Friday hopefully.

At any rate, if anyone wants to get together sometime let me know. My schedule is fairly flexible and I don't need too much advanced notice.

Default Newbie Needs Advice About Which Detector to Buy

I have been researching and reading reviews about various entry-level metal detectors. Opinions vary from Garrett Ace 250 to Fisher F2, to White's Coinmaster and Bounty Hunter 1500. The more I read, the more confused I get.

One article suggested observing an experienced MD owner to learn what's important and which features to look for when making your purchase. If anyone is willing to let a newbie tag along, I'd be greatly appreciative.

I'm in Rowlett (right on the border of Garland) and haven't bought my first detector yet. Still trying to figure out which one is best for a newbie. I'd love to tag along on a hunt to get a better idea of what MD to buy and which features and accessories are important.
