New from NJ, soon to be AZ


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm currently a relic/old coin detectorist in Southern New Jersey but will be moving to the Tucson area hopefully before spring. I'd like to get into nugget shooting when I get there as I'm truly addicted to detecting lol. I'm surely not set up for nuggets though with the equip I have. Currently own a ML Sovereign Elite, ML Musketeer Advantage, Tesoro SS Plus, Ace 250, JW Fishers Pulse 8, and a Nautilus DMC 2b. So I'll hafta pick up a gold detector when I move. Any pointers or tips for a novice nugget shooter?? I've been detecting a long time so machines are nothing new to me, just the style of hunting will change. Is Tucson a relatively good area for nugget shooting?? Also would like to meet some friendly people down in AZ as we will know no one when we arrive. Thanks!!

Jason don't sell the Soverign short...you might be surprised what it'll do...

I was thinkin that only for the shear fact that it handles mineralized ground well, and I've hit birdshot to about 6" with the 10"x12" SEF coil I use. That coil is very stable in most ground and quite sensitive to small targets. You think it would be worth using?? I guess all metal on it would be the way to go...

Also wondering if Tucson is a decent choice for a place to live... I'm gonna be starting life fresh in a new state so was wondering if there are better places in AZ to choose... I'm looking for the warmer climate + prospecting + affordable housing.

My heart bleeds for you. I moved here from W Pa. in July. I'm still recovering from the trip. I can give you some pointers and will PM my cell phone if you want to call. We have the same detecting background and there is a change looking for those nuggets.
