Thanks for that pic! Those would make excellent gifts for those "hard to buy for" people.

Default So.....What Are You Buying With Your Clad?

I collect old guns. Iíve amassed a huge collection and digging clad helps to fund some of those. I donít dig nearly enough clad to finance every purchase but every little bit helps! Hereís what I cashed in on for this years clad. It didnít fund the whole purchase but put a good dent in it.

This will be my first full year of detecting and for Christmas last year my wife gave me a treasure chest about the size of an average shoe box. I have been tossing all of my dug clad in that box and don't plan to buy anything or even count it until it is full. Based on the "fill rate" so far , I probably wont be buying anything for a couple more years.

Wow! What a unique purchase! It's great to see so many people actually hunting clad with a future purchase in mind. No everyone lives near battle sites or extremely old areas. We hunt what is available to us. At the end of the day, it's not always what you find, but how much you enjoyed the hunt!

No, a couple trips to Norway to see my girlfriend. I would love to do a metal detecting vacation one year.
