Hi Ive be a " lurker" here for some months always wondering if you lot are sick enough for my sense of humor the answer is HELL YEA i come on this forum every day nearly! i read about the trials and tribulations of the members sometimes with a tear or two in the eye i haven't delved much into the rest of the forum as it didn't quite seem right but now i will i have 5 items that beep and squeal at me and when the hearing gives out 4 will shake my hand off i(we) have a Nokta Impact and pin pointer a Makro racer2 and pin pointer and an ebay pin pointer we mainly do the local beaches at the moment to get used to the machines and the loudest find so far was a condom wrapper at around a foot down thankfully it was empty but it sure made the impact scream well enough from me for now ive got some serious reading to do roo geoff

Gday mate, where in south oz are you? I spent a few years in port Lincoln. It's a great state to live in. Second only to Tassie of course, ok maybe at this time of year it's slightly nicer there.
