  1. Oh I understand and appreciate everyones opinions and advice,I do read ,read ,read,read......and I am patiently waiting.I have read compared,researched and know I will be savin up for a while.I was just wondering if it was worth getting and it was but i was too late in buying it...it would have been a fun toy to play with even in my backyard and practice.I will be buying a few samples of nuggets,grains,flakes and meteroties to test with anyway....and be hunting around the pawn shops around here.......and savings my pennies

  2. To make sure it works as you want I would get a meteorite sample and see if the machine will read it.....my ace 250 will not read one....GMT or GOLDMASTER series is best in my opinion....

    ok but im hoping the whites eagle II will ...anyone have a meteorite and a little gold nug to sell me lol so i can test...

  3. Well I don't have 5-600 laying around right now to spend and was wondering if this was a decent enough device to go out with and have a little fun ... If I have to wait to get 800-1000 to spend on equipment I might end up waiting forever lol ... I will eventually buy a high end device just right now is not the time finacally... My three year old daughter ,day care ,mortgage ,is already alot and I have about 10,000 invested into another hobby that should be giving me some residuals soon....

  4. Any Las Vegan's still up for a day trip to Gold Basin on Sat. 1/2/10? I joined the Gold Searchers of Southern Nevada (GSSN) and will be prospecting on their claims in Gold Basin.

    The weather looks like it's going to be nice: sunny with temps in the upper 50's.

    My son and I will be heading out of Henderson about 8:00 am.

    Email me at: mtnrocker@hotmail.com if you would like to carpool or meet-up.

    Cool how is it there at GSSN and how far is that drive? anyone else in that group?

  5. i probaby wont buy untill tax return time or later.....unless I have a good breeding season with my snakes,unless i sell a few of my breeders....i need at least 500-100 to get a decent detector for searching the deresrt.A lot of restricing laws here on deectingI might go there tomorrow on the way home......while christmas shopping.............anyone got a old detector that i can buy a gold bug or gmt?

  6. The ACE 250 is agreat for coins but not for meteorites, it goes right over them....I use mine for coins but a GMT is a GREAT for both gold and meteorites , does pretty good on lead and trash too.. :rasberry:

    I respect you opinion on meteorites.......but as for gold I will keep my hopes up http://www.kellycodetectors.com/Finds/garrett/garrett_b_ace250.htm

    but in the mean time do you have any other suggestions for another reasonably priced MD GMT and gold bug are what im hearing is the way to go for gold nuggets and meteorites..........any specific coil im going to go look on some websites thanks!

  7. hey thanks I would love to go but I have to work these next few days as I am forced to take off from the 24-4.....I really appreciate the offer.If anyone is going out on these days let me know,so I can get a baby sitter.It's hard to have a hobby with a wife and three year old.I hardly get to see my wife because we work opposite schedueles so every chance we get to spend together we usually do.....and What more can I say bout my rugrat...she's daddy's girl.I just cant wait till she gets older and will be able to go out with me.SHe already helps me with all my reptiles!....Once I can save up and get a quad im sure they will some along that way they can stay busy!Been hard too just moving here....and getting settled in.......any way nuff bout my sad story.LOL Im looking foward to meeting you guys soon and going out on a excursion! Mahalo nui loa! Thanks very much!

    You guys can reach me at
