If you were in the military they will give you 15 percent off the price at most dealers

Everything I have had from being in the military has been lost. Will they look at my grey beard and take my word on it, or might I just not mention it?

Now that 800ís are readily available from dealers, your best shot if you donít have your DD-214 is to contact several forum sponsor dealers. You may well find that the difference isnít all that much.

Craig from Show Me Treasure, a sponsor here, has the best detector price for any detector he sells. For the past 4 years, not one single dealer has ever beat him on his price, without any haggling.

Now that he sells Minelab, I'll never have to worry about shopping around again. I can just message Craig for an invoice and know I'm getting the best price. By best price it usually isn't even close. For my F75 Plus, the next best price was $100 more.

With that said, price isn't everything, and he nails it in the customer service department also. I've dealt with other dealers over the years, and can't really say anything bad about any of them, just Craig is my fav.

I've used Craig from Show Me Treasure quite a few times, usually from his Bay presence.

It's been a flawless experience every time!
