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 45 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 2016 marks our 6th 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 known to take other items in on trade AND I have a lay-away plus 12 months same as cash on purchases over $800.00 (subject to credit approval from Personal 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 and thanks for stopping by.
I also try to keep some pinpointers such as the ProPointer, the ProPointer AT, the Uni-Probe and the Fisher Pin Pointer, also some Lesche products.
I'm open from 9 - 5 Monday thru Friday & Saturday's by appointment only.
If you can't make it when I'm open call me and let me know when you can come and I'll meet you here if possible at all.
I accept cash, check, Visa, MC and Discover.

This detector folds down to a small size that could be stowed in a back pack etc and wouldn't take up much room on a vacation when space is at a premium.
Impressive machine for the money.
Here are some club members with some nice finds.
Here is WKTPS member, Glenda Langford presenting the 1948 class ring to it's original owner.
