All I Can Say is, WOW!!!

This past year, I purchased my first Minelab detector, after the urging of several of my metal detecting friends. Previously, I used a competitor detector. Several friends of mine kept telling me how much they liked their Minelabs and how much they were finding while using the Minelab, even after pounding the places there were searching! With the Minelab, they just kept finding more and more that they had walked over!

I finally caved and purchased a Safari. Am I glad I did!!! I've hunted my father's house numerous times, and after taking the Safari out there the first time, I picked up several Lesney toy cars and my first ever silver ring!

So far this year, I have managed to find 2 silver rings, my first silver coin (1943 Merc) and, the best find of all this year, a men's 14K white gold ring while on vacation to Florida in November! The gold ring was about 4" deep in the sand and about 50 yards out into the ocean!!

All I can say is, WOW!!! I honestly have to say, I am now a firm believer in Minelab detectors! Had it not been for me purchasing my Safari, I honestly think I would have walked over all these great finds! Thank you for building such great products and thanks for helping me have such a great metal detecting season!!!
