Question: Have you noticed if those bobby-pins (or straight nails) give a double beep ? Or some such audio clue where you are tempted to start passing those type-beeps ?

I had this conversation with a very well known southern CA expert pulse user (who has found over 1000 gold rings on So. CA beaches). And he does indeed pass nails with his pulse. And this make me wonder: Wait a minute: If the claim-to-fame is the ability to find dangly chains, then HOW DOES THE GUY KNOW if the "nails" he's passing , might not be an elongated chain of some sort ? Seems that you'd have to dig the nails too "just to be sure".

Yes, they always gave a double beep but I could never resist digging for the chance it was 2 targets side-by-side.

Ahhh, this is the classic story I've heard. I talk to the pulse guys who say they've learned the sound of nails . Yet ... you notice that nagging doubts have them always digging a bunch .... "just to be sure". Doh!
