and let's not forget most Local Dealers are out as well.

There are only a few 'pockets' of areas in more populated metro areas around the entire USA where you can make a casual drive around town and spot many people out enjoying this sport like we used to see from the mid-'70s through the early '90s. I don't believe we'll ever see a resurgence in this country anywhere near the level of interest and activity the metal detecting industry once enjoyed.

While some of the YouTube and other videos and TV series that involve metal detectors can be of interest, for both entertainment and knowledge, I see it more like a bushel basket with too many bad apples.

Even a lot of the manufacturer's videos fall short of being much of a quality product so I'll give a thumbs up to those detector makers who also present the general public with quality-level visual productions.
