Default Fun day with the tesoro

Had alot of fun today with the compadre, it is fast becoming my favorite machine. The normal change, a buffalo nickel, and a frog ring marked 925 that I had no idea I had until clean up at home. Kinda a muddy mess today.But yea, I don't mind digging 5 to 6 inches max, and getting a silver ring and a buffalo ..Beep anf dig is fast too, no monkeying around

I love beep digs, no matter what new detector comes out they are still fun to use. It's almost like pulling a slot machine for me, I don't even mess with the discriminator to get a clue what it is. Good clean beep means it's coming out of the dirt! Nice finds.

Thanks Chris,I feel exactly the same way about the slot machine..I had no idea I even had a ring,probably thought it was wire balled up in the mud..Glad I started using a finds pouch and not pitching junk in the weeds.lol.
