This is a different finds story. It's not about an actual target find but about a lifestyle find. I am a member of the physically challenged being an upper extremity amputee at the shoulder with severe limitations to my remaining shoulder, arm and hand. This is a result of an electrical accident from when I stopped to assist at a motor vehicle accident late at night with downed power lines and contacted a live 4160 volt line. This happened over 20 years ago and during that time I have tried numerous hobbies only to be frustrated by my lack of being independently able to do these hobbies.

I tried model railroading but needed all kinds of assistance so I gave it up. I tried fishing and really enjoyed it except for needing assistance with putting lures on and taking fish off the hook, so I gave it up. 5 months ago I was introduced to metal detecting. This has turned into a hobby that I can enjoy and do independent of others. Yes, I can't go as fast and recover targets as fast as others, but it is a wonderful leisurely hobby. I tried numerous entry level machines and became frustrated with the machines and ended up with a White's M6. This machine is a great turn-on-and-go detector and with it I have found plenty of clad coins, jewelry and misc. items. If you know someone looking for a hobby, introduce them to our hobby of metal detecting.
