Rock and Mineral Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • Try a factory reset... there is way to use the gb without going through the entire process...by using manual, I think. It has been way to long since U used my 7000-now I have to relearn it...dang, darn and stuff!
    • They're a great little machine.. I wouldn't trade mine for anything (especially if it was operational at the moment, but that's another story..) I imagine one would be especially useful to those who like to desert crevice; it can really get into places even the smallest of coils are unable this side of a skinny shaft mod.. Their worst drawback, which I can't call an actual problem, is how they react distance-to-size: The smaller a target's size the closer the Falcon needs to be to elicit a beep -- and also target-size-to-distance-away ratio for detection increases rapidly.. In other words and as an example: It's possible to miss small gold in a two-tiered rock formation at the bottom of a deep crevice a Falcon was able to worm its way between then on to to check out that let's say a Zed would be able to pick up through the entire mass.. But then again you're also comparing an at-one-time nearly $10,000 machine's capabilities against an twobuck-forty-nine$ one-trick-burro's.. However, if yer gonna bust rock n clean out that crevice regardless, a Falcon will tell you if there's gold or not prior to a time-consuming pan-down (which knowing most of us we're still gonna pan down anyhow..) All-in-all not a bad deal for the price difference.. And when it comes to detecting nugglets in known shallow locations or on bedrock that's been placered or naturally swept, a Falcon is simply another of the best -- just with smaller footprints is all..
