Metal Detecting Information Online
Recently I came across this article about the proper care and use of your metal detector. I just had to share it here.
“Triumph in the metal detecting, as well as run through, frequently think about the quality of your entire metal detectors. Improper
not to mention bad metal detectors comparative a whole lot of within the nba, pretended signals, as well as fraud has. Professional
quality metal detectors involve sustained likelihood of shopping for expensive elements and platinum offers.
But the truth is, every metal detectors due to Metal Detector Town have the most effective routine maintenance and care frauds
getting and services information for your requirements forever.”

Ok. That’s enough. I hope I didn’t break your brain. This has to be the worst writing I have seen in a long time. The person who wrote
this claims to be a freelance writer for a Metal Detecting website. Somehow, I don’t believe this is true.
This brings up a very good point. Where to go for quality information on Metal Detecting.
Most of the metal detecting distributors have blogs or forums where you can share information. And most manufacturers have their
own websites and FaceBook pages.
I am a visual learner, so YouTube is my main source for information. I have subscribed to about forty YouTube channels that deal with
Metal Detecting. Some of the ones I frequent are:
The Silversniffer – Ross is a metal detectorist in Southern California. He hunts mainly beaches. His channel is not an instructional
channel per se, but I have learned a lot just by watching him. He uses an Excalibur II, and has recently purchased an Equinox that he is
going through the learning curve with.
Tony Eisenhower – Another Southern California detectorist. He hunts mostly beaches and is entertaining to watch.
Aquachigger – This YouTuber does a lot of hunting on old Civil War sites, mostly around the Virginia / Maryland area that he
researches himself. He hunts in rivers and on land. He also dives for lost items in rivers and finds a lot of lost items.
She Detector – She Detector lives on the west coast of Florida, and hunts mostly beaches. She has a connection with a metal
detecting distributor, so she gets to try out a lot of equipment from them, and does very in-depth reviews.
GarrettDetectors – the official YouTube channel of Garrett. They have a lot of information on their detectors, including many
Houston Metal Detecting Services – a company that specializes in finding lost items. A great way to see how to approach different
types of terrain and learn techniques that help you locate targets efficiently.

During the break, a sticky note was placed under
a chair. After the break, it was announced that
the members should look under their chair, and
see if they find anything. Arnie Steiner found the
sticky note, which won him some swag.
Congratulations, Arnie!
