Hi, I am new to metal detecting. My husband just bought me a Garrett 2500. I've just gone out a couple of times...not much luck. I am looking for a club or someone nearby to hunt with.
I have been watching videos and reading the blogs but learning how to dig is important as many times I think I have a hit only to dig and find nothing. Also do I need a pointer too? I see many people using them. Thanks for any help you can give.

City or County area you are in would help. Springfield had some loners and Browning has a small club. Peoria, Moline, Joliet and Bloomington also.

White's V3i w/12x10 SEF coil & Sun Ray Invader DX-1 Probe, White's Prizm 6T w/Sun Ray Invader PZ-1 Probe, Garrett Ace 250 w/Sun Ray Invader YF-1 Probe, Fisher 1280X for in the water, Fisher 1225X as my seeded hunt machine.

Member of Peoria Area Treasure Hunters Club in Illinois.

Purchased my first detector in the spring of 1972, slowing down but still having fun.
