  1. Thanks Mike, i will check the settings. I got it just two months ago and haven't had enough time to get used to it.Cheers
  2. Hi all, Can anyone help about troubles with a T2 which does no more sound on gold ? Thanks for your help
  3. Hi all I'm happy to tell you I'm the new owner of a GMT!!! Thank you Paul and all I'm especially proud to be member of this forum. Some forumers thought (some wrote it in some forum)being an african i'd better go for fishing rather than metal detecting . I hope I could show they were wrong as soon as possible. See you for my first find. Idriss
  4. Thanks Franck for this wealth of information that make me discover. I have my GMT coming soon and the link you posted is just what I need to be ready before I get my detector. I'm increasingly convinced that i've knocked at the right door. Keep on the good work. Idriss
  5. Thanks Paul for your advice. I just did like you, i sent the money to the sales rep with some extra and now the GMT may be on it's way to me. It's good to know that although african, I still can count on many forumers. Thanks all and thanks Colorado Oro also but as i said, PayPal hasn't allowed me to pay more than $100 yet. That's why i couldn't deal with you. Idriss
  6. Sorry for the bad maneuver above Thanks a lot Garimpo for helping avoid a big mistake.
  7. Thank's Garimpo for the advise but i've tried to deal with some forumers and as you say it's not easy when you're from Africa. Some like Colorado Oro were very kind and willing to deal with me but others were suspicious or very naughty. I do understand as most of the scammers are africans. Colorado Oro had a GMT for sale but the shipping cost he got from UPS was $638 whereas Kellyco gave me a quote of $255 for a GMT plus accessories. I thought may be Kellyco has advantages that Colorado Oro couldn't have for freight. I'm now confused about Kellyco's quote and i think i will make a little rese
  8. I know people no more trust africans but i don't feel concerned as i need noone's monney to get what i'm looking for. I'm not interested in others personal infos as I have to keep mine safe from those who you refer to. This being said, I've got a Visa credit card and i proposed to give them the card number but the sales rep said it couldn't work in the US as it hasn't been purchased there!!!! I don't know why. Idriss
  9. Hi Au Seeker I've considered that option but bank sais they have no connexion with Kellyco's bank and they have to make the wire transfer through City Bank and this could take almost to weeks before Kellyco to get the money. I would prefer an instant transfer which could lead to a quicker mailing of the detector. Idriss
  10. Hello all It's been a while since i'm looking to buy a detector. I've got a quote for a GMT from Kellyco but it's been two weeks i've been trying to send the money to them unsuccessfully. I've tried with PayPal but i'm not allowed to pay more than $100 and due to malfunction of the bank's website if i want to pay via PayPal i have to wait for the bank to post me a statement to be permitted to pay more than $100. This could take almost a month and i'm not sure i could keep the money untouched till then. So i've tried to send the money via Western Union but the local office said they have neve
  11. Hi I read a bit about the GMT capabilities but never owned it. I once wanted to buy one but i decided to go for a PI. Are VLF as efficient on black sand as for one to buy it mostly for black sand detecting? Is black sand worth such expenses?
  12. Hi all I was wondering if there were ways to detect black sand or fine gold deposit. Could one use a particular type of detector for that purpose? Thanks Idriss
  13. Hi Soloman I know that many people (even africans) have been cheated by africans but i have a PayPal account and i think i can deal safely with anyone overseas. I'm from Burkina Faso (W-Africa) i've never ordered a PI detector but i know there ain't be no problem ordering one. I've ordered an ACE 150 from Detections.net in Belgium 7 months ago (Serial number 50341739, receipt number FC10 138A362). I had just discovered metal detecting and i wanted to have a start. I live in a region where gold can be found with the right detector. We even have one of the most important gold deposit ever found
  14. Hi all I'm new to this forum and i'm looking for my first PI machine. I've purchased a VLF to have a start in nugget hunting and i now want to practice more seriously. It's been a while since i've tried to find any second hand minelab PI detector in the range of $1000-1500 but it seems like most of the forumers don't want to deal with africans. Looks like this is the reason why i'm still searching (wish i'm wrong). Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks. Idriss
  15. Hi guys I'm new to metal detecting and i've read quite a lot about it on various forums but never found any topic about metal detecting and lightning strikes. May be am i worrying for nothing but I would like to metal detect during the rainy season and here's my question: is there no risk of lightning strikes to use a metal detector in rainy weather? Is VLF or PI safer? Any informations or links will be highly appreciated. Thanks IL
  16. Hi Mike and all I'm new to this forum and nuggetshooting so that i have much more to learn than to say for the moment. I've joint the forum hoping to learn and tell you about nuggetshooting in Africa someday but i feel like beeing part of another world, like if i could never be a normal forumer just like you or should i say, just like a developped country citizen. I wonder why used detectors sellers don't want to deal with me if not because i'm from Africa. I've been looking for a SD2100/2200 machine for a while on e-Bay and other forums uncessesfully not because of lack of opportunities but t
