Bounty Hunter Lone Star Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on March 20, 2008):
How My Bounty Hunter Lone Star Shined!

The first machine I ever purchased to go metal detecting was a Bounty Hunter Lone Star. I had been pondering the hobby of metal detecting for about 20 years. I finally made the leap and spent the low amount for this machine. Of course I needed to have the approval of my wife first. She was of the opinion that I would not stick to this hobby for very long. In fact her family and everyone I knew laughed at me. But unbeknownst to all parties I was to do very well with this machine. I got that machine home, and hobbled right out the door after putting it together, which was a simple matter for even me. The instructions that came with it made it real easy to assemble. I slapped in a couple of batteries and made a few passes and dug my first couple of ate up zinc pennies. This isn't too bad, then I had to rest, after all I just had a joint replacement the week before. Yep, like I said I hobbled out the door to go hunting treasure.

Over the next couple of weeks I hunted various locations such as grassy strips and parks and even slowed down like I was by the end of the hunting season I had found enough clad to almost pay for the machine. There were even a few silver coins and two Indian heads to boot! The adjustments I made when I turned the unit on were real simple. The sensitivity knob turned the unit on and I would turn it about 1/2 of the way, unless the detector acted erratic, in that case I would back it off a bit until it was stable. The disc / notch knob I would only turn up slightly just in case I ran over a nickel or possibly a gold ring. I only hunted on Disc mode and that was all I ever needed. Could it have done more if I used the other modes such as auto notch or all metal? I guess I'll never know, but I did make some good finds with the Lone Star. I also made some interesting discoveries about detecting and where various items read up.
