  1. All great advice. I will reach out to the resort next weekend. Does anyone have experience with either unit?
  2. AuSeeker, Thank you for the information. Sorry about the links, I didn't think about Nugget Shooter and his store. Appreciate any help......
  3. Heading down to Mexico for 10 days for a family vacation. To keep me sane during mandatory family FUN time, I thought I would try combing the beaches, and swim holes around the resort. I been researching these hand held devices, and narrowed it down to these two. NEW FOR 2021 Quest Scuba Tector Pro Metal Detector ADDING THE 8” COIL OPTION Nota PulseDive Underwater Metal Detector & Pinpointer 2-in-1 Set with 4" Coil, 3 kHz Pulse Induction Frequency Both units are Pulse Indiction the PulseDive operated at 3khz, and the Quest operates at 97khz I know both these units have limited depth, but the PulseDive with the 8” coin goes about a 1/3 deeper according to YouTube videos I watched. I also snipe in CA, and would love to use this down the road for rivers and creeks for gold. If Possible! QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP 1) any experience with either unit? 2) and opinions on frequency? 3) any others options out there that I am missing? thank you everyone!
  4. I stupidly took the photo of the wrong serial number. Working on getting it verified now. Attached is the serial number on the handle. thanks, craig
  5. Got a GPZ7000 for sale. Comes with Pelican hard case, and everything expected. Located in Ventura California. Hit me up if interested. Thank you, Craig
  6. Has anyone ever used a GM1000 down at the beach? Not much into metal detecting the beach area, but since we are on lockdown looking for things to do. I only have a GM1000, and unwilling to purchase an Equinox right now. Curious if anyone else has used the GM1000 at the beach? If so, which coil and settings would be fantastic. Thank you, Craig
  7. Went out to Randsburg yesterday with another forum member. Was out all day, hit three different locations scouting and detecting. We did NOT see another person out prospecting. Seems like a pretty safe place to be, and had a lot of fun to boot.
  8. Thank you everyone for the response. I guess I didn’t fully think this thru. Was just wanting to get out of the house, and take advantage of the time off. oh well - I guess I will suffer thru it down at the beach.
  9. Due to the Covid 19 situation I have been told not to go to work for the next couple of weeks. Thinking about loading the RV up with the wife and kids, and travel around to different nugget shooting locations across the south west (CA, NV, AZ). Don't worry we will be practicing our social distancing out in the desert somewhere. Does anyone have suggestions of locations that we could drive an RV to that has metal detecting? Currently club memberships are AMRA, GPAA, West End Prospectors, So Cal Prospectors, and OC 49ers. Willing to join new clubs if needed. Thank you in advance for any suggestions. Craig T
  10. Heading out to Barstow this weekend for a outing. Still available? If so will swing by and pay cash. Thanks, Craig
  11. Great Prospecting Video! Couple Notes - 1) The wall to wall stock music takes away from what you are doing. Either mix it lower or fade in and out as you see fit. During the 8 minutes it kept grabbing my attention, and not in a good way. 2) More ON Camera interaction will help you stay connected with the audience better. Bill does a good job at this. 3) Small compact Tri-Pod could help out a bit while digging the targets. With that said.....It is easy to say "Lets Make A Video", but to actually follow thru with camera work, sound, editing, and then posting.....It's a lot of work. GREAT JOB! Look forward to more in the future.
  12. Spent half the day on the AMRA claim and the other Half at the SoCal Pospectors claim. I had a good time, but no gold. Maybe Next Time!
  13. Joined "The Prospectors Club of Southern California". Heading out to Randsburg tomorrow to get some practice time in, and hopefully that elusive first nugget. Will report back on Monday. Thanks for all the great advice.
