    • I had a few set of boots and these got a couple hard years of use, and then very sporadic.  I knew they were falling apart, so mostly it was yardwork.  For Years the boot tacks or staples had been poking out, and I've had to get thicker and thicker padded inserts to keep the staples from cutting into my feet.  Also, the leather had started to separate from the sole in four or five places, and that's one of the reasons I took the duct tape out to the claim on the walkaround.  Because the metal eyelets, staples, and grommets set the metal detector off, these had never been my detecting boots.  Those were a tan set of boots that disappeared out of the back of my truck back in January when I went in to get gas.  I had a connection with the boots and was trying to get some use out of them as long as possible.  The black set in the photo was my first set of jump boots, and the tan set was the last set of jump boots.
    • If you do decide to purchase a metal detector, I wouldn't waste my time detecting farm fields. I would go visit the farms in your area and ask if they have any old rock piles. Years ago when farmers first settled the land, they often plowed up rocks which they put into piles off to the side somewhere on the farm. It's possible some of those rock piles contain meteorites since farmers didn't know what they were at the time. I would go with a Gold Bug 2 and the 10 inch coil only because I've had a lot of experience with it. But you might want to consider a multipurpose detector so you can hunt coins and relics as well.
