Great course today Andy!!!! A couple of things to mention... I would have a critique at the end to help with new ideas. Also would ad some video clips with audio of "iffy" target. Obviously its easy with clean targets, but the key is getting the finer tips on those " not so clean" targets. Thanks again, look forward to the periodic news letter.

I agree that it was a great course today. I only wish it was on a Saturday, but that is not you fault. Both you and your wife are great people you are an excellent instructor. I agree with the video comment. But the course is well Worth the price and recommend it to everyone.

I'd like to take their class as well but ladt time I checked I didn't see any being given in the Portland ORE area or Pacific NW.

Sure would be great if they had a video version of the class that covers everything, iffy targets etc. I bet it would be a great seller everywhere for folks with the CTX that can't make it to a class. That would be a very interesting video to have, I wonder if that would be considered? Just an idea :-)

One guy I hunted with occassionally was at an older local park where we've found silver coins from time to time, he saw a guy all decked out in Minelab close from head to toe so he started talking to him and and the man said he was a "Pro" (whatever that means lol) and apparently he IS because he showed my friend 9 silver coins he'd found in that 1 park on his 1st ever hunt in ot, he was from out of town visiting, we'll we've hunted this park and everyone I've hunted with around here was quite suprised by the fact he'd found 9 in one hunt, we've all found a few here and there, but the man told my friend it's just a matter of learning how to listen for those coin shaped tones and knowing that silver does not always giver those higher silver TID numbers, and obviously it takes lots of experience nd in my year and a half hunting with the CTX I obviously have NOT acquired said experience, but I sure would like to be able to get the most out of my CTX!

I've managed to find my deepest silver dime am next to oldest (1915, oldest was 1914 barber a week before) barber at 11 inches, using the 17 inch coil and it was very iffy!!! But I dug it and was rather shocked when I saw the barber shining up at me. If I could only do that consistently I would feel great!!! Some have scoffed at me when I told them how deep that coin was, I measured it and the hole was to the top of my lesche, those scoffers, 1 being a man that's detected over 50 years now and a very well respected man in the field, use Whites detectors with small coils, but it didn't matter, I was very impressed by the depth I got with that trash can lid sized coil, now if only I can master it!!!

Sorry for the ramble, got carried away by how amazing and helpful the classes sound and went into dream mode of the day I learn how to take advantage of my CTX.

Minelab CTX 3030, 2 Garrett propointers & Whites TRX Pinpointer. 2014 Finds: Silver Coins - 25 === Silver Rings - 7 === Gold Jewelry - Coming soon I hope! Oldest coin = 1914 Barber dime.

Just spoke to Charlene Sabisch about possibly holding a CTX 3030 Boot Camp somewhere on the West Coast. She indicated at this time there were no concrete plans to do so. However, there is a conversation with a Northern Nevada Club about the possibility of holding a Boot Camp. Sounded like if there was enough interest in a CTX 3030 Boot Camp here in Northern Nevada, it might happen.
