Metal detecting does not mean that you need to purchase an expensive metal detector. You can buy a reputable detector for less than $250. Stay away from the expensive models that have all of the bells and whistles. They have a much higher learning curve and most often those detectors will only confuse the newbie. Many times that person will become frustrated with the detector and put it away in the closet, never to be used again.

If you buy an inexpensive model, and you learn how to use it properly, you will be rewarded with many years of fun and adventure.
