I've had a recurring dream over the past few months that I was using a metal-detector in the sand of a volleyball court at a local park. I kept unearthing the same diamond ring worth thousands of dollars! So I bought myself a Bounty Hunter metal detector and sand scoop and set out to make my dream come true. All I found were 2 old nickels and a rusty pair of pliers. Will I give up? NO! I got a few faint hits that I need a pointer for....it looks like a flashlight but is much more sensitive than the wand. When you get a hit off the big unit, you poke around with the pointer....it goes nuts beeping when it's close to your objective and you dig it out. So I got on Amazon (I hate Bezos but what's a fella to do?) and snagged a pointer...not the expensive Garrett but one that got a few good reviews for half the price. It will be here in a few days and I'll return to the sand pit of my dreams....here's what I hope to find....wish me luck!
