Hi, as there is much interest here for metal detecting etc, might I suggest a new sub forum dealing specifically with opinions on detector equipment, different makes, best one for detecting militaria etc. Some here probably have some good suggestions for equipment settings, avoiding junk and jail.
It was interesting reading on WAF about the use of those long prodding rods for example, would never have even known they existed if it were not for that topic on digging Russia.
The forum could also have more detailed talks about laws in each country in relation to detecting and other talks about dealing with live ammo etc.
I know all this info is scattered around many discussions already, but it is difficult and time consuming to find for example there might be a great piece of info in relation to the legal situation in e.g. Italy or where-ever, but the info is on page 4 of a discussion with the title " New Helmet Found" so as I said very scattered and time consuming to find.
Any other opinions?
