All of you have probably returned a find, helped find keys or a ring but in our case this was a very special return. If you have never tried to make a return I suggest you try it sometime and enjoy the feeling it brings you.

I have been prospecting for about 8 years now. I as many before me started out panning for gold, found a little and was hooked. From that point I started to up my game buying some equipment.

Happy Honeymoon


October 12, 2017 08:37am


I was at Doheney Beach the other day with my X-TERRA 705 Metal Detector. I was soon approached by a young couple from Sweden who said they were on their honeymoon. They told me the husband had lost his very expensive wedding band at the beach. Only thing was, they lost it at a beach about 5 miles up the coast in Laguna Beach.

Gold Nugget and Coin!
