    Yeah those 3" 50 cannon can be a bit noisy in a gun tub on a ship. We also fired 5" 38 cannon. The only thing that we had for hearing was cotton. Also it was dirty and exposed to everything foul around the ship. Today the government is being sued by vets for not providing the proper ear protection while firing ordnance. That doesn't go for us guys that didn't have any ear protection at all or very little. My hearing is very bad and the tinnitus is constant but the VA says that I make too much money to qualify for hearing aids. Go figure that. I can still hear those Chichadas though. Old Tom

    I means zip to me, except in a vicarious way. My only thoughts were that folks need to get outdoors where the chance of transmission is nil. Vit D is a big booster for the immune system. Get some sun, folks. Don't worry about me,Bob. I wouldn't want your brain cell to have a stroke. Never been to one of the outings, as I am not a serious beeper. By the way, I got your little guy right here

    Excellent video! I wish everyone would embrace this and just do it for the sake of others. Wearing a mask is not that uncomfortable. Now, wearing one of these for 8 hrs in black, turning 96 F-16s in Az in Sept during an ORI......thats UNCOMFORTABLE! Been there done that. Tom H

    Max, I have been using a drone for 2 years now. The technology is improving on each new release. I just recently purchased the new DJI Mavic Air 2, and love it. Flight time is 30 minutes, has a 4k camera, its range is a few miles, ect. Im using it more and more on sending it out to scout out prospecting locations to hunt. I ran into another prospector out near Ivanpah Nevada, and he was about to hike up a steep hill to get to some interesting looking mine workings almost at the top of the hill. I told him, I will send the drone to scout it out. When the drone flew up there, the mine was completely caved in, and the guy was thankful for saving him a few hours of strenuous hiking. You can buy small cell phone repeaters to attach to the drone, so if your in a remote location, in a canyon, or hills that get no cell, you can send the drone straight up, to get above hills and mountains to get cell.

    Yep, been hearing and seeing them every year since ever since. Back in the 80's, used to have a cat that would go out under the street light all night and hunt the cicadas. If I got ahold of one, I could call him over and he'd eat it out of my hand. I sure would love to go back to those simpler times. Thanks for the reminder.

    Bob ... I do normally go and participate with the instruction end of things. The campfire sessions are the best though! Stories and lies, big gold and lies and more stories and lies! LOL!

    My one dog thinks they are manna from heaven. Loves to hunt them down and then "crunch crunch" Good protein I guess :) Tom

    The topic was removed because it seems whenever there's a topic that gains interest there's always the very few that very well knows the rules of Bill's Nugget Shooters Forum feel they need to breaks those rules for whatever their reason is which ends up getting the topic removed, then all the members who were following the few rules we have here lose out because of those few rule breakers and not being able to voice their opinions. I have been working 6 to 7 days a week, at a minimum of least 10 hours a day for the past several months so I don't have the time to remove or edit out the offending posts and issue warnings to the offenders, who very well know who you are, so the only option I have left is to remove the entire topic. That being said, I wanted to post an explanation, so everyone have a great day, I have to go back to work!

    There is no such thing as a Mono coil for a VLF detector such as the White's Goldmasters. There are concentric and double D coils only. A mono coil is only used on the antique BFO and the pulse induction detectors. All the early Goldmaster coils were concentric. The original Jimmy Sierra Gold Max coil was just a larger concentric coil. The newer Black Sierra Gold max coil is double D. All the coils work ok in most cases. The double D handles the more mineralized ground better. All coils that fit the Goldmaster II, GMvSat, GM3, GM4, GMT, and GMZ are interchangeable. RSJ

    Hey Mike! Are you interested in an unofficial "beep-o-rama" with Swellbelly Hillbeaver? The word on the streets is he wants to have an outing anyway. I think he is having trouble finding a buddy to go with him. I would do it but Im going deer hunting with my son that weekend. If you know of anyone that could put up with him around a campfire please tell them to drop him a PM. Thanks Mike!
