“Are You Interested In A Metal Detector Or Accessories?
Using a metal detector around the old Illinois towns can be an exciting adventure.
If you do not own a metal detector and you are thinking of purchasing one, do not over spend. Too often, newcomers to the hobby buy expensive detectors only to discover nothing but confusion about how to use their new model.
If you spend between $350-$450 on a new model, that is good enough. Just read the owners manual, and practice with your detector, and you will do fine. Move up to the high end models after you have become proficient in the hobby.
Visit my store and see what great deals there are on metal detectors, accessories, and much more.
