Hi,

My name is Dominic, I first picked up a metal detector in 2012 but stopped going unfortunately; but Iíve picked it back up a few months ago and havenít stopped going since. There is nothing better than digging up history, jewelry, relics and coins, just inches from under your feet. Iím from RI and mainly hunt local so Iím looking forward to seeing others in the area and their stories/finds.
