I would really look into a Fisher F2, it is what I currently use. For $215, you can get the detector with headphones, 8" and 4" coil and Fisher pinpointer. The pinpointer is not the best but will do until you upgrade to a Garrett Propointer.

I bought mine and one for my dad from Big Boys Hobbies.

Well if that's all you're trying to accomplish, try Navy Bean Soup, it's much cheaper than a detector.

Am partial to Garrett. Great customer service. I have three. They find stuff!

Keep 'em in the ten ring
