  1. Hi folks, sending my GPX 5000 to new home.. Here are the coils included: Coiltek 14x9 Blitz Mono, Coiltek 16" Round Mono, 8x6 Sadie. Minelab Commander 15x12 and 11 mono coil, Commander Double D coil, Doc's Screamer battery system with 3 batteries, the Minelab external battery, extra handle. I have the harness and battery cable but have to dig those out. Asking $2900 for all of it. The only coils I really ever used were the Blitz and Sadie. So the other coils were never used. Don't use the 5K much anymore so its taking up space. I will let go of it for $2500 for the just the detector itself and the stock coils. (Minelab Commander 15x12 and 11 mono coil, Commander Double D coil).
  2. Great way ti wrap up 2018!! I'll bet there will be some fat ones in 2019 for you!! Have a Happy New Year!! Mike
  3. Great way to derail the skunk!! Nice nugget!!
  4. Great finds there Luke. Fricking AWESOME!!!
  5. You are making me hungry. I used to hunt ducks for years and whenever I see duck on the menu I ALWAYS order it. When I get retired I may have to chase the mallards again. Been to long. Mike
  6. SWEET! I was just thinking on calling you today about Nox covers, and here they are! Thanks! Mike
  7. Thanks Goldseeker!! May have to take you up on that. Mike
  8. There are several good gold detectors out there, GB2 is one of them. The Minelab Gold Monster is another good, but better one IMO. The Minelab Equinox is another one that is both good for Coin, Gold and Relic. Do your homework and watch a LOT of youtube videos so you can understand what each can do. Bill has got some great videos out there on both the Monster and the Equinox as well as how to hunt for gold. IF YOU ARE NEW TO DETECTING, be patient and be persistent because there can be a big learning curve in both coin/relic AND in gold hunting. So don't get discouraged if you don't find a gold nugget your first few times out. With some folks it took some time and multiple trips to the field before they found their first nugget so there is a lot to learn in gold hunting. First thing first when you settle on a detector, get to know it, how to use it and how it responds to different targets. Recovering targets and developing your style falls in place next. Your adventure begins there.....Good Hunting!!
  9. Up at Alaska Gold and Resorts in Nome, AK its always raining so you get used to it, chase some nuggets and have fun. Its not much fun detecting in the rain in AZ so go play golf instead, it never rains on a golf course.
  10. WTH Gary! Tossing some dirt out of the sure is worth it. Nice gold there!
  11. Got in a couple of hours near Bumble Bee before I have to head out of town for the week. It wasn't a skunk but it sure felt like one after digging more bird shot then I usually do. My back was even getting sore from all those heavy bird shot. I considered using a quarter for scale to make it look smaller.
  12. It was a great tasting beer. It was local to Montana so I may have to get some sent down for the next Nuggetshooter.
