The heat and dry spell have transformed the ground into a concrete-like state, so my only option for finding Civil War relics remains the river. I enjoyed a nice few hours chasing Minie ballsfrom the 78-degree water in defiance of the 98-degree sun. Winning. My pinpointer had not yet arrived back from warranty work, so I made due with a Chinese knockoff that I waterproofed like we used to do to the Garrett ProPointer II. It worked, but it is just an inferior pinpointer in terms of sensitivity. I DO NOT recommend the Chinese knockoff pinpointers unless you are in a desperate state, such as sending your ProPointer AT off for warranty work for 3 weeks in the middle of prime detecting season.

I didn't find anything too spectacular, just some bullets. I swear there has to be a belt buckle there somewhere! Enjoy the picture and video.
