If you do not own a metal detector you should purchase one. Buy a good used model from a reputable manufacturer, or purchase a low end, new detector that costs between $350 - $450. You don’t need a detector that cost a thousand dollars or more, and that has more knobs and switches than a Boeing Jet. The high end model detectors more often than not just confuses the new user. If you have a less expensive model. All you need to do is read and understand the owners manual, and practice using your metal detector.
