Re: So What Got You Interested In Metal Detecting?

I was spending some time during a scheduled lay off and was looking for something to do between hunting and fishing - in central Indiana. I was into photography and visited the forums a lot when someone mentioned this Monte guy who hunts ghost towns and parks for silver! I decided to check it out and in about 2010/11 I bought a used XL PRO, a small coil and was off. I dabbled a bit for a couple of years till my wife got sick in 2012 and traded it for a high end pellet rifle. I didn't pick it back up till I moved to Idaho. So about 4 years ago I visited the forums again and there he was, that Monte guy and many others. I bought an MXT All Pro and that was the start of me watching my money fly out the window... . I have had many detectors since then but have now narrowed it down to a small handful, a couple of which I don't think I would ever let go, except maybe to the grave with me!

Nope, he didn't show interest at all. But he did get into it the summer of 68 briefly. N/T
