Thread: New Guy from Cincy/Dayton Ohio

    New Guy from Cincy/Dayton Ohio

    Hello, just found this site and It looks active unlike most I have been viewing. New to Detecting, but this hobby falls right into place with other interests and hobbies I have. Only been detecting for a very short time. No great finds yet, did find a 60's Derringer cap gun, still trying to secure a few good locations.

    Welcome from Washington state in the great Pacific Northwettest. And welcome to a great hobby. I've found this to be a great site to learn about detecting from friendly folks and I've gotten lots of good advice and ideas here.

    milco,

    Thanks and Yes I do collect PEZ and have over 2000 Pez and Pez related items and No haven't found one MD'ing. If you had a hit on a Pez please be very careful it will be old. New ones are made of all plastic BUT the old ones had a metal pin in the head or metal spring. If you find one of these Contact me immediately, Please.

    Welcome from Oregon!

    You may find cruising this site to be a hobby of it's own! <}

    Looks like that derringer was fired until the mechanism melted down. Must have been one tough hombre slingin' that little hog-leg...
