    While waiting for my Safari to arrive, I got antsy and took the Excal for a turn around the house. In the first 5 minutes I turned up a VERY strong signal, pinpointed it and scuffed it out of the...

    First find with GTI 2500!!

    I had to laugh at myself. Yes, the target registered as a coin and right under my front steps! 4 inches down and a quarter. Well, actually six inches down and a rare electrical knockout coin! :rofl:...

    Thanks, Jeff. The summer up here has been wetter than usual, but I'll make the best of it. I always said if there wasn't a Colorado, I'd move to North Carolina.

    I can't seem to find a coil cover for my old (blue) Excal 1000. This might be a viable alternative. It might just go on my new AT pro pinpointer, too.
