I did a lot of research and finally decided on purchasing the Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505 and I'm really glad I did ! Since I'm new to metal detecting I was looking for something simple to operate but effective ( not a toy ) . This thing is amazing ! I've been bitten by the treasure hunting bug. I've owned it now for three weeks and have been out nearly every day with it. Every time I go out I find something, mostly coins, but right now I'm just getting my feet wet and that's OK with me. I use the 'Disc' mode ( which is a no brainer ) and have found quarters, dimes and pennies along with an old gold charm. What's amazing to me is how accurate it is ! I mean when it says there's a quarter 6 inches below, you can believe it ! I am in the process of joining a Prospectors Club so I can learn even more and discover locations to go hunting for gold nuggets at. By the way, a side benefit of owning one of these is you'll spend more time outside in God's beautiful countryside and you'll be in great shape with all the walking you'll do. Well I've gotta' go now. I'm packing a lunch and my chocolate lab and me are off on another adventure !!
