The Signature list. eye popping smiley. Red alert

January 21, 2023 05:46PM avatar
I do like to list all the detectors I regularly rely on. And I agree that sometimes we do need to thin some out.

But there is ample room for a Signature to include what you have, or use, or things you'd like to say. Just look at my Signature below! smiling smiley


Ok Monte and everybody else, you're going to have to forgive me here, i'm going to offend some of you - eye popping smiley - I'm going to be frank and say that I think of the " Signature" line as more of a 'bragging' line or 'personal advertisement' to establish a level of status, competency and accomplishment in the hobby.

I often get the devil on my shoulder whispering in my ear wishing that all of those listed detectors in a persons' signature line be accompanied by that persons skill level reached with each. I say this because some buy, try and sell detectors without ever becoming accomplished with them. I've done this. Sometimes what we think is going to be great just isn't for us and we end up selling it or trading it away.

I usually have my signature with a detecting thought but will swap that out for a short time if i make some sort of significant change with the equipment I'm using. I can't imagine that anybody visiting sites I frequent really cares in the slightest what detector(s) i'm using with the exception when a new detector comes out and folks interested in it are sharing info during this "shake down" period; like we are currently with the new Manticore, Equinox 900, and some others.

Ok, there ya go. Now everybody knows. LOL. That said, while I don't really 'care' what detector you use, I do look forward to reading about the outings of those willing to share. Your stories often inspire me do better, try harder, research more. To those, I say thanks.
