Bounty Hunter Discovery 1100 Metal Detector
Just bought this for my boyfriend as a birthday gift and he was super excited about it. He can't wait until the ground thaws and he can really test it out.

Bought this when on sale
Being a first-time amateur detector user I didn't want to spend a lot of money. After researching various detectors online, I chose this one and grabbed one while it was on sale on the Source website. It arrived quickly and I was ready to try it out on a fair-sized patch of dirt in the back yard that wasn't still covered in snow. I followed the training that's shown in the manual and I was amazed at how well this unit responded. I can hardly wait until spring now and check out our whole yard, especially for our long-lost municipal water access cap, and to hopefully find a couple of minor lost items over the years. If it's as fun as I suspect, I may be heading off to the beach in the summertime, too. Needs 2x9V batteries to run (not included). I would recommend getting a set of metal detecting headphones as well (purchased elsewhere, about $30 + tax for a decent pair), ones with individual volume knobs of both ears as each ear will have different sensitivities to different frequencies. That and so your neighbours won't hate you.
