 NEWS FLASH !!! March 2014 - Silver cache found six feet deep in Mexico with a Minelab CTX 3030.

 Photo above representative not actual treasure trove found.
Welcome! I hope you take the time to look around a bit and then call me up and chat. A little background on myself is in order here - I've been treasure hunting since 1970 and 44 years (and counting) later I still love to swap stories with fellow enthusiasts.
My first detector was an inexpensive kit from Radio Shack as I recall, it wasn't very strong and had no discriminator but I found some stuff. My next detector was a Compass followed by a Daytona then a Garrett then a couple of Fisher's. Down through the years I've had and used most brands and have been successful with them all.
Now that my health and business ventures prevent me from hunting as much as I'd like I still get to visit with people who love the hobby as much as I do.
One day I put an ad in a local paper searching for anyone interested in forming a club and the West KY Treasure Preservation Society was formed and 2014 marks our 4th year. We sponsor a club hunt each October that keeps getting larger each year. Anyone interested in coming to a meeting to check us out is welcome. We meet the first Thursday evening of each month at 7pm here at my store.

I'm still new at selling detectors so I hope you'll give me a chance to win your business. Its hard to compete with the internet but I try and accept trade-ins and it doesn't have to be metal detectors. I've been know to take other items in on trade AND I have a lay-away plus 12 months same as cash on purchases over $1000.00 (subject to credit approval from a finance company). One thing the internet doesn't offer is letting you take a detector off the wall and play with it first.
Hope to see you soon! Jim

Our local club, the West KY Treasure Preservation Society was hired to look for a buried treasure some time back, we were offered $100.00 if we found it. I asked what it was and the man said it was a 5 gallon bucket of ammo, that he had buried it in his yard but didn't draw a map. I agreed and after work one Saturday some club members and myself went and found it for him. Below is a photo of me beside one of the buckets. (there turned out to be two) He refused to open either of them while we were there so we still don't know what treasure they contained but there has been a lot of speculation among the club members ever since.

Call or drop by for your best price. Bring along any trade-ins you may have, I'm always happy to talk to you and try to get together.

We'll try to direct you to the best detector for your type of hunting, mineralization in your area and the type of target your most interested in and make it as affordable as possible.
