Looking to get a metal detector and wanted to throw the net out here and see if anyone has one they'd be willing to part with. I've never owned one, but thanks to the internet I'm pretty much an expert now 🤣. Interested in mainly relic hunting but I won't be picky.

Any suggestions on brands would be appreciated also. Thanks in advance.

Budget is around $500 (ish)....all in

I'd suggest buying used from someone. From what I understand, some keep upgrading metal detectors like some of us upgrade guns. They buy, then want the next best thing.

CrowT can prob list some sites. Ebay for sure.

That's what I'm hoping. I'm sure I'll be "that guy" too one day, upgrading annually. Just my nature. Good news, there's several old home sites on my property and surrounding farms that I have permission to hunt/detect. Looking forward to getting out there and seeing what I can find.

Seeing as someone needed my detector more than I, I too am looking for a used detector. I have been looking at some metal detecting videos to see what those guys are using, then scouring eBay and Craigs List to see what is out there. My budget is much lower though, as I don't need anything that high speed, just something to find lost objects that I know I dropped in certain areas now and then.

That sucks. My budgets much lower too. I was just trying to look cool 🤣 I don't want to pay a lot on my first one. I've got a lot to learn about them and detecting. In the same breath, I don't want to waste my time detecting for hours with some POS either. I'm looking at my safe (aka play money supply) and seeing which one of those guns is gonna turn into a metal detector. 😩

With the price of weapons lately, you should be able to afford one that will find Hoffa's belt buckle. :)
