    Is there anybody who uses metal detector for finding military relics? I used to do it but unfortunatelly there are not many good localities around the place where I live. However I found few things like MG 42 parts and BREN machine gun mag and lot of ammo, but nothing truly interesting. I wonder what are your experiences with metal detecting?

    I used to live near Peachtree Creek in Atlanta, and a number of collectors used to take their metal detectors down there to search for Civil War belt buckles and other types of metal artifacts. I know that, without metal detectors, a lot of folks have found things like minie balls down there.

    I don't know of anyone ever finding anything of value with their detectors, but I'm sure there were some recovered treasures down there over the years.

    Only 'virtual metal detecting' via the Internet on you-tube , cringeingly bad health and safety digging up old ordnance , but good viewing as well. had a laugh with this one ! :eek:
