Lost ring on the beach find.

One of the things I thought would be cool to do with this detector (CTX-3030) was to actually help someone find something significant they lost. On my third trip to the beach using the detector, about 0200 July 5th, (Virginia beach) by myself, this guy comes up and explained he was toast...he lost his girlfriend/fiance's ring. One of the beachcomber tractor drivers told this fella I was metal detecting (about half a mile down the beach) and maybe I'd help him out. Being from Baltimore I was naturally leery, but followed the guy. Way in the distance I saw one person who was his girlfriend. When we arrived, I could see their footprints covering a 10'x10' area where they searched for the ring. I started a good 5' outside where they thought they lost it, and it took about 3 minutes to find the ring (11" coil). The ring was a family pass-down and had some nice diamonds to boot. It rang in at a consistent loud clear 12-13 and gave the deep sound (that in my case usually means a piece of Al foil). The young couple was much happier...less tension, and all of that. ...this really made the trip worthwhile to me!

Congratulations on helping them out of a bind. I'm a believer in Karma and what goes around, comes around.

Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.
