Just got my MXT this morning! Less than one hour out of the box i got my first find, a 1994 penny, not to mention about 30 pieces of metal (that I'm going to recycle). Thanks Steve and Bob, I'm hooked. I do have to say, it is a very easy MD to learn on.

Go to the nearest schoolyard and get around the playground equipment and dig everything. Just listen, watch the meter, and dig it all. Easy, you will learn a lot, and you will find stuff that surprises you. Good luck and thanks for the business!

I'm going to a park tomorrow right by my house, it's small so I wont get overwhelmed by the area to cover. All I did today was mess around in the yard. I air tested a handfull of nuggets from 2/10 of a gram to 1.2 grams and it wasn't to bad considering it's not a prime tiny gold shooter. My first piece of advice, that you don't hear much, is Wear Boots! I emptied my sneakers every 10 minutes, haha live and learn!
Happy hunting!

Please leave no sign when digging in parks. Or we get outlawed. http://www.ohiometaldetecting.com/how-to.html

Not to worry, I've watched at least 20 hours of MD videos and I was a boy scout, always leave it better than when you got there, especially picking up trash.
