Gold Prospecting 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.

    • Yep , The VA told me the same thing.  The twin 40 MM  was not to pleasant either . We also fired 81 MM Mortars with a piggyback 50 Cal  attached . All with a GI helmet and sound powered phones  if you were the gunner or trainer , the loader and hot shell man had nothing and they stood closer to the gun than  anyone! But the evidence that the VA wants is PROOF that you were  on a gun crew and the date and time and how many rounds were fired and what for so on and so on. Information the was never recorded in any log book I ever seen. Proof ? Most servicemen of our days are lucky if they even have any records of service. How can you prove that you were on a gun crew and fired 50 50 rounds of 3" 50 rounds at a target on any certain date There was no records kept but they can tell you exactly what days you were on earned leave. I repeat THE VA IS WORTHLESS.  It took me 15 years to get what little disability they gave me and that was after a federal judge told them they had too but they would not make it retroactive nor give me enough to qualify for GI insurance. I was told directly in person at the Phoenix VA office that if I appealed one more time that they would take it all away.  As far as the Vets org's they  are primarily drinking clubs and of little use.            I have had friends who died in agony from Agent Orange exposure who had a hell of a time PROVING their exposure  to it..  
    • Dave,  All this stuff is advancing so fast it's hard to even read about the advances and uses . For instances I have now read that most major fire departments have drones to get views of the fire that they  are fighting without risking a helicopter. Pretty soon they are going to have too have traffic control just for drones. For an old foggy like me who grew up without TV until 1945. When I lived in Deming ,NM  you could watch the big drones followed around by a Cessna  going through testing. Some of the first operational drones over seas were remotely controlled from Fort Bliss Texas , they solicited a bunch of old  radio control model operators to fly them before the young guys caught up to the training . Just because you can fly a regular aircraft does not make you capable of flying a drone on a monitor. Younger people who have grew up with video games have a definite edge. These days you can almost be sure someone is watching you with a camera or a drone. Its just a matter of time before someone invents a small drone with some sort of gold nugget detector, be to late for Grubstake and Me !!
    • I see nothing to indicate a meteorite.  What do you see?
    • That's a great idea Dave! Could be a real help in some areas near to cell towers but behind a hill etc. I can't seem to find any small ones. Do you know where to look?
    • Good for you Terri. At least you are able to get out and stay safe. Tom H.
