What Will You Find?

First find with my CTX 3030

Following a tip to an old smelter a few miles from my near Vernal, Utah I hit my first major find. I've only had my minelab a couple weeks and have been very impressed with it. But I can't explain the excitement when my shovel turned up a Smith Wesson P99. I have it soaking and I think that it may be salvageable. How exciting!
