I metal detect all of the time. But it becomes addictive once you start pulling out treasure. I carry a Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II with me on my work van. I live in a city that is 300 years old and do service calls throughout. I go to some properties that have been around 150+ years and swing the detector around the back yards. There were clothes lines way back when and things in pockets fell out. Coins, keys, jewelry ect.. Also along walkways and side walks were people would pull out their keys and coins would fall out. Plenty of pre 1964 coins in the ground and they are made of silver. But like I said it is addictive. Sometimes you have a few minutes to spare and you swing the coil and you may get a few hits of junk. Pick up and move on. Sometimes you swing the coil and bam! Treasure! You only have a few minutes and the stuff keeps coming out of the ground. Hard to stop.

It ain't easy being cheesy:

Sometimes I make decisions like famous people.

I have a 32 year old White's Eagle Spectrum and it still works as good as the day I bought it. The Eagle Spectrum XLT is the top of the line White's, and it's also very expensive ($850 or so), but it is one of the best. Mine Labs (Australian made) is also very expensive but very good. Check both White's and Mine Labs as they make affordable detectors. As stated above, once you learn to properly use your detector, if you get one, it's very addictive. You just have to be very careful where you hunt. Most federal parks and recreation areas ban the use of detectors.

I was doing a little researching are anyone use a fisher f2 or a garret ace pro 250. Supposedly both are good starter. Is it worth starting off with something more advanced and expensive?
