I have several hobbies, but one of my favorite is metal detecting. I got interested in that back in 1968 while living on the Mojave Desert. My very first detector was home built from parts. Then I got an old heavy World War II mine detector. I got it from an Army Surplus store in Fresno California. After that I bought a Fisher M-70 for $100.00. I still have that one, but it doesn't work any longer. Then I got two detectors from Montgomery Wards. One was Bounty Hunter Bandit, and the other was a Bounty Hunter Outlaw. Very old stuff now. And I still have both of them. Surprisingly they both still work. Next I got a Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505. Still have it, and it still works. Then came my Garrett Ace 350 and a Pin-pointer. I am now using a Garrett AT-Pro and a water proof pin-pointer. That AT-Pro is a great detector. The Ace 350 is also a good machine, but I prefer the AT-Pro. I have a YouTube channel with videos showing some of my finds over the years. The link is in my Signature.
