Best Day So Far

Okay I bought the Safari a few weeks ago. I've been maybe a total of 6 hours out detecting so far. Now I am not a pro not even close, but I have found more with Minelab in those few hours than I have with the other detector I had.

Notice I said had because after digging this quarter up, I went home and threw the old one away. I am a huge Minelab fan now, the proof is in the pudding. Today I dug up a 1899 USA Quarter. Now looking forward to as much time in the dirt as I can get. With my Safari no doubt.

Thanks Minelab for a quaility detector look forward to many years with your products.
