      voy108 Well, you got me. I'm looking at the Garrett's and will prob. get the 400 because of budget constraints. Padre Island, and other areas of Rio Grande Valley. If I get one, the summers on the road will never be the same. I found my single gold nugget with a...  more

    DH is looking forward to hitting the beach in the morning after all the revelers have gone home. He owns the Garrett AT Pro and has been detecting 2 years. Although now that we are FT .he has much more opportunities. ;)

      Livin' The Dream If you lost it close to home and knew the general area, you could find it quickly! Ken found my sister in laws ring she lost in her yard in about 15 minutes. They are reasonably priced for entry level finders. You should consider one. It is great fun h...  more Hide 1 Reply
