    Hello from Northern NYS

    New guy here, located at the Foothills of the Adirondacks, started metal detecting back in the early 80's, how it begin, I was hunting with my 1st deer rifle, an ole 3030 that was a family pass down from great grandpa, I lost the sight off of it, borrowed a friends detector, and found the sight, and that's how I got hooked on metal detecting. Mostly I hunt ole homestead cellar hole's, been called a few times to find lost items, it's awesome to find someones lost wedding ring and see the joy in their face when you hand it to them. I also enjoy taking my grandsons detecting. I'm a retired Maint Tech and now I'm a Houseman, I also enjoy, #1 hang with my grandkids and son's, hunting, fishing, R/C model airplanes, woodturning, racing, hot rods, ham radio, groomer operator for a local snowmobile club, riding snowmobiles with my family, maple syrup producer and staying on the good side of the better half Nope I'm never bored!! Looking forward to hanging out here

    Hello Iceman , that is quite the resume and great intro ! you must find some great looking coppers as many near the foothills do , I think its the famous "lime belt" that runs through parts of NY and is kind to items lost there. Looking toward seeing what you find sir ! welcome to AD .

    I believe it is a sportsmen button OxShoe, never did find much info on it, I'm guessing 1800s, it's cool a button.

    Thank you, when I realized that I had lost the ramp from the sight, I remembered where the brush was where that I caught the rifle on, a friend of mine had an ole detector, think it was White's, big ole boxy shaped thing, I couldn't believe I found it, I say's, man I got to have me a detector.
