Garrett GTI 2500 Pro Metal Detector

Garrett GTI 2500 Pro Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on March 18, 2008):
I currently own a Garrett brand GTI 2500. From as far back as I can remember, I have dreamed of owning a metal detector. The lure of finding a pirates' buried treasure is a feeling that has been hard to describe. It has been easier to bring someone along on a treasure hunt and let them find something with my metal detector... allow them to experience that rush of cleaning away years of dirt to expose a coin or something else of value. Only then, without me saying a word, do they understand the feeling... and then are believers!

This journey as a treasure hunter began when I was very young. I remember digging in the back yard of the very first house that I recall living in... a shack by today's standards in a little town by the name of Freeport, Texas. My brother and I had been sent outside to find the dog... again! My father worked as a Volkswagen mechanic which didn't pay all that much, so finishing the chain link fence was not a high priority when supporting a wife and four children. My brother and I became bored quickly in our quest to find the dog and began digging in the yard up close to the house.

I could never describe in words the feeling that came over both of us when we struck something... something that we knew wasn't dirt! It was something shiny and metal... smooth, large... oh my god what was it!? We feverishly began digging and calling for mom! "Come see mom... it's a buried treasure!" As she came out to see what all of the excitement was about, we finally unearthed the round, chrome hubcap from a Volkswagen Beetle! My father had used the hubcap to protect the main water shut-off valve from getting full of dirt and mud! I have never forgotten that feeling of discovery and excitement that day that I found the treasure of a hubcap. I now live in my own house and though I have yet to have kids, I have a five year old nephew that I spend as much time with as my brother will allow. I can't wait until the day that he finds his own "hubcap".
