  1. Tucson Gold Show

    Hi All, if you are coming to Tucson for the gold show stop by the Minelab booth this morning to say hello, I will be sharing the stage with Kevin Hoagland at 1:00pm to speak about metal detecting for gold nuggets then back to hang out with Deb at the Minelab booth for a while. Will also be there on Sunday if you miss Saturday's seminar.
  2. Very cool, learning as you go... Someone has to do it

  8. 12V puffers

    I had a Keene 12 volt puffer for many years and loved it.... These days I mainly detect. The pros are no screaming small engine in your ears all day and no exhaust smell in the concentrates like some leaf blower motors cause. Cons, to run all day I had to tote that darn marine 12 volt battery up and down steep hills... Both find gold well if used properly

    Glad you like it and you likely have the only one in NY

  14. Sir you have become very good at this and loving the chance to tag along here at the forum. Jim Straight said something to me once and it was " Bill, we got something we need to share, you know what i mean?" I waited.... "finding gold is a skill learned much by having a mentor". Yes I said and waited..... "I write books, you have the internet and teaching or helping others go where we have been feels good" I again said yes..... Jim has a passion for helping and taught me much over the years, I honestly owe some of my success to him and many of the other old timers at detecting Arizona, like Nugget Bob.... Hehehe I know some stories of his exploits in the old days and dang he got some gold. Was in one of the first prospecting with a detector videos I ever saw tearing into old timer hand stack piles. But back in the late 80's and early 90's there was little help anywhere for folks wishing to find gold with a "witching stick" I watch many come and go here, but many have started out with us, stayed, then made us jealous of their finding skills There is some serious skill here in a list to long to write.... I love this place. Anyway to know that in some small way I was an inspiration my friend is cool beans to me, thanks....
  15. Nooooooooooooo.......... I don't have one yet, you folks having the first round are obligated to share.....
  16. I found some gold today

    Very nice gold, heard about the battery mod and was curious as to how it would work since Minelab specifically says not to use them in the manual.
  17. Great read and nice gold Andy!
  18. Equinox UPDATE

    Thanks Sheldon, but you had the first prepay on my list within hours after we were able to offer this option. I too want them in everyone's hands as I don't get a demo for the shop till then
  19. Equinox UPDATE

  20. There is always a learning curve with new technology and this is also very true for the GM 1000 or GPZ 7000, first time out with both left me scratching my head , but after learning their settings and function they are both amazing metal detectors. First time with the Gold Monster the micro processor had me frustrated some, figured out just had to use it correctly
  21. Nope not gonna replace the CTX and was not intended to... I am enjoying the videos and please feel free to state your opinion here at Nugget Shooter good or bad and if an early opinion changes after you gain experience which is often the case (good or bad)
  22. Sheldon this is great stuff and keep the posts coming, big info to folks new to this newest offering from Minelab.
  23. Thanks Sheldon and your videos will come in handy for those getting their Equinox before dealers even have them to learn from.
  24. Hi Everyone, well it is finally show time and my first allotment of Equinox have shipped and will be here Saturday, You folks that have prepaid are taken care of first and after that I will have them in stock at all times if available. I will contact you as yours becomes available and there will now be a continuous flow coming in over the next few weeks, so if you didn't make the first round it will not be long. I will contact the folks in the order I took prepay orders and have contacted those that made the first small allotment list. MORE WILL BE HERE SOON! Still taking prepay orders if you want to be one of the first to snag one from the first several shipments.
