The Tesoro line is still a great one to look at lifetime warranty.

There are many great deals on good lightly used machines on the detector forums.

Fredericksburg Gold and Pawn 540-371-7800 have several used detectors in stock. They are checked out before they take them in to be sure they work. Give them a call - they ship.

Canadian Tire has some Bounty brand on sale for 50% off. Any idea if this is a good brand? I noticed the original price is inflated but the sale still seems good.

Bounty Hunter would be considered entry level, there are a few members on the Canadian Forum that use them with success.
Most dealers offer full packages on entry level at good prices.

While I'm not in this hobby (yet?), I do have a question. Many of the state parks and BLM lands in my area do not allow metal detectors. My question is: why? I can see a why if there is reason to believe that an area is near ancestral Indian land, but other than that ???

Some of these folks running the show forget who owns the land!

State Parks have rules that vary from park to park so contacting the one you want to detect for permission is the only way. Most do have set rules.
BLM land again varies from one state to the next some require a permit.

All historical sites have always been off limits including Indian land.
Contact a dealer in the area you live for information on the rules.
It is surprising that the odd brain dead person thinks they can do as they please without regard for the rules of ethical detecting and do cause problems for everyone.

There are plenty of city and town parks that are fair game.

I got interested in metal detectors as a teen and received one as a gift. Used it here and there, including on the beaches in Florida over vacation. Never found anything more valuable than a quarter, and after a few hours of slowly swinging that thing back & forth over the ground, the luster wore off the hobby for me.

Has anybody researched the laws concerning metal detecting or treasure hunting?

I've been in this hobby for many years hunting in Canada, USA, UK .

Laws can vary by town,city, or federal, talk to your local dealer or club.

A new detecting season should be starting for those in the hobby.
