  1. Bedrock Bob- I kind of looked it up and biface came to my head also. Appreciate the input!
  2. If Frank can post a can, I can throw this out there (maybe?). Trying to sell home and need to get septic pumped for inspection. Honeydipping buddy of mine is pretty busy so trying to help. I've dug it up 3 times in past 20 years but before had a tractor to help. Today, by hand and with pick dug about 6" farther from tank than ever before. This plopped out. Have dug up and actually found most arrowheads on the surface after a rain in my driveway. Found a 3" black obsidian blade over by my pump house a couple of years ago. No gold tho-
  3. Happy Birthday Wade!!!!!!!
  4. So sorry to hear, but no more pain and that's a blessing!
  5. BOB, used to visit several forums that all gave good info on airguns, but best, I think was GTA- Gateway to Airguns. Might check out-
  6. Have a couple; started with a Gamo Shadow Sport 1200, 17cal, Barska 3x12. It shot well. Did a daTuna trigger job and then did a spring job. Accurate and easy shooting. Thought to get into local small time competition and bought a AirArms TX200 in .22, scoped 4x12 and birch. It is sweet stock Had issues with red tops destroying facia on my house. Cost $700 to replace. The redtops had a favorite power pole about 30' out, before they would attack house. Not for long. Best time had: I guess wounded one and it fell straight down. Squaked for longest time and brought in 17 more that were curious. They have pretty much stayed away since. Pellet guns are a lot of fun and cheap to shoot but like anything else can get pricey.
  7. Just saw it's your birthday. Well, Happy Birthday Sir!

      Shep, thanks a bunch

  8. No recluse seen around here, but do get black widows. Something I've done in my garage that seems to work- close all the windows and doors, put a 1/2 gallon of gas in riding lawn mower, start in the evening and let it run out of gas. Next day, hold my breathe and open big garage door and windows and air out. Will find dead black widows hanging in their webs. If I see any spiders in toyhauler before winter trips to AZ, might put generator out there and do the same.
  9. Might have to dump the pounder if it does.
  10. Tom, it was a pleasure meeting you Sir! Good luck in your travels!

  11. JFYI, anyone with a Minelab modified detector with a problem. Always told Minelab wouldn’t service a modified unit. Last month my Woody modded 4500 started having problems with a failing function switch. I contacted Detector Center in PA (814.283.4270) or Service@minelabamericas.com and got a RMA#. Sent it off last Wednesday. They called this morning, they replaced both switches as other one was a bit slow. 2 switches and ½ hour labor paid and it’s in return mail. Does not get any better than that!
  12. Have a slightly used 20” Nugget Finder coil w/ shaft for sale. Works fine, have a modded 4500 w/ 12” Evo coil and don’t want to dig any deeper than that! First $325. Will be in Q AZ next week
  13. That's what I thought Clay. Earlier saw his post, he's going to Middle Camp.
  14. I carry extra power cords, backup batteries, the tire repair kit w/ CO2 cartridges, one of those lightweight silver looking space blankets, matches, and war surplus energy bar (heavy like the pound cake in C rations). Small hammer to break my watch if I think I'll miss happy hour (don't need the additional stress)
  15. Glad it wasn't deeper and/or longer; almost looks like a baby's butt
  16. Got wife in good mood; will celelbrate her BD before or after, will be there
  17. Billie, there's a lady that comes to our (your) functions, one with the tent, son came with her last spring. Might connect these two ladies. Gett'n old, can't remember names like I used to.
  18. Well, I'm gonna plan on March 8th to 19th. Maybe it'll fit into Bill's plan-
  19. Dates? Good time for a Family Reunion!
  20. Just think what you would of found with the Gold Monster! Hope you had a Merry Christmas! Shep

      Thanks Shep it wasnt easy getting here a lot of the roads werent paved in my younger years

  23. Ok, a question to those who are using the Gold Monster (Patrick you can sit this one out for a bit). I love my 4500, but looking for a good backup. I had a 2300 and hated it. Was suppose to buy an Amp to hear and then there were a couple of other issues. I just did not like it. Too many people like it so it’s probably me. Want no BS here; some people like motorhomes and I like trailers. Seems there are issue with the shaft, okay. Liken some of the reviews I’m reading. Guess, I’m picky. Have a Gold Bug Pro, just not caring for, so probably give to my daughter when she comes out. No one gets my goldbug2 or 4500. If’n yer a bit of hard hearing, can you hear targets w/o headphones? I’m like Bill, I like my Koss, but sometimes too hot. How really is discrimination? Thanks, Shep
  24. To hell with the detector, what are you using for a camera. Great close up!
  25. Appreciate all the responses. Guess someone wants me on this earth for abit longer for whatever reason. Let's give Rodger all our prayers and thoughts now!
