Congrats! :)
Glad you were able to get one right out of the shoot.

Hope you get a lot more!

Nice work 'Micro' ... but to match your screen name you need smaller gold! LOL! Keep working with that 4500 and play with the settings when you have a good sounding target before digging it. You will learn a lot about the machine and shorten your learning curve. Just be sure to keep that threshold under control ... meaning smooth ... even if it means reducing the RX Gain a bit ... Most guys use way too much of that anyway. Try it on a target and you'll see what I mean.

Microsniper,

Pretty cool!!!!! If I may ask did you use the 11" DD or the 15x12 Mono? I have a 4500 on order, moving up from an Infinium to a TDI to ML 4500. I hear that I am in for a pleasant surprise!

Hey Jimmy, It was the 11" DD.... Honestly Im surprised I found that lil thing, it was about 5'' deep on a gravel covered ledge, obvious target. Im not so sure I would have found it with my TDI..... Maybe I was just extra focused cause I had my new machine in my hand! I love it so far, just cant wait til I actually understand all the settings!!

Thanks Mike, Yeah I guess I should change the name to MACRO-sniper! I learned a lot yesterday... so true about the threshold..
