Looks like that location is keeping you busy!

Congratulations! smiling bouncing smiley

It's always great to have a site or two, or perhaps a handful, that you can visit and be assured there is a steady diet of potentially good targets to be found. Always looking for other places to search, knowing that if there isn't or time is limited for travel, you can still eek a keeper or two from a place like you hunted.

I'd guess you were using the Makro Racer 2. If so, which search coil and mode choice were you using? Settings? Always curious because with the Nokta and Makro TID models I prefer to have a lower Discriminate setting so that I can hear iron nails. My guess is that I accept iron nails maybe 90% of the time, or more, but up-to 10% of the time I decide to just barely reject typical nails.

That lets me take advantage of the visual numeric TID read-out and audio Tone ID of these product lines. When using my Tesoro models, it's usually just the opposite where I am rejecting iron nails 90% or more most of the time, and accepting them or even all ferrous targets up-to perhaps 10% of the time.
