Thread: Hello from North Los Angeles

  1. #1

    Hello from North Los Angeles

    Glad to be here. Not really much of a forum fan though. Been MD'ing for about 5 years (off and on). Mostly coin shooting, but looking to start water and meteor hunting. Favorite machine is my MXT, but recently came into a couple abused Fishers and an old Eagle 2 pro I'm repairing. Anyone from Amador or SLO county areas? I visit there quite often and would love to find places to relic hunt.

    Ed , some of the forums out there aren't very hospitable at all or so influenced by manufacturers that you can't even compare or talk about certain machines. So i can see how your not a "fan" . we don't "bash" machines but honest and respectful discussions about machines/manufacturer issues are welcomed ,opinions by our members are valued and encouraged for the sake of sharing information and love of the hobby. I think you might find us a bit different and refreshing from some of the others and give us a chance . Again welcome to the forum Ed.

    I agree with Dan. I haven't been on here that long and I can see people are very respectful here, and Dan be one of the most knowledgeable here. Coinnut, too. I think Daddy would agree... I happened to stumble upon his name in another forum in a thread from a few years back. That forum there was bashing back and forth on people's ideas/comments. Very supportive of the many coinshooting fails I have had which turn out to be relic hunts.

    Welcome from Illinois!

    Glad to have you here, Ed! I used to have an old Fisher 1260-X and had a lot of fun with it. I found my fair share of old coins with it back in the 1980s. Sometimes I wish I still had that machine just for nostalgia's sake.

    Looking forward to your participation on the forum. Best of luck and happy hunting!
