She knows she can always find something there. I drilled some holes in a few of them and she made a necklace and earrings from them.
    polyurethane them to contain the lead....handling them is one thing.....prolonged skin exposure is another... IMO....cool idea.

    You can get a run of the mill for about $200 +/-......Cheaper after Christmas....the one I use was on sale for $160.00....it's a Bounty Hunter....retailed for $249.99.

    A friend just gave me his old White....it's got a broken lead I need to fix.

    I'm saving pennies for a Fisher....but that takes a lot of pennies.

    I haven't, but really want one bad! I have some old homesteads and an old CCC camp I want to search among other places.

    I would love to go to the old traning grounds on Ft Bragg where the soldiers crawled around all day. Imagine all the old coins that must be buried in all that dirt...

    best score to date is 2 pocket knives in one day....lots of coins if you go around picnic areas.

    I'm going under the bleachers at the school as soon as it lets out for summer.

    I do. Best thing I have ever found was an engagement ring once when I went to Myrtle Beach. It had to have been there for a long long time because the gold was really scratched up. I sold the ring for somewhere around 500$ or 600$ if I remember correctly. Other than that never anyhting great. Got some other things over the years just junk really
