  1. Hey Jimmy,    Thanks for the comments and glad you're posting.  As time goes on I will continue to work and tweak the forums.  Rob Allison www.robsdetectors.com
  2. Hello All,   Just a FYI as you can see, I did a forum upgrade to the most current version.  Normally, new versions have bugs that at some point will have patches and updates to fix.  If you notice anything, please let me know. During the upgrade process, it stated you could only keep one name, your username or display name.  I allowed it to keep the username, as most use this name to log into the forums.  I haven't checked if you can change it yet.  I recommend checking your settings in the top right corner to see what you can do on your end.   I'm also in the process of updating my online store, so you might experience some minor issues.  If you're experiencing any issues ordering, please call us.   Thanks!
  3. Waking up to a New Forum

    Hello All,    Ya, I'm not sure how many bugs are in the newest version.  I took the plunge and done it.  
  4. Not too bad

    Hey CowKiller, I told you so, it's just a matter of time until your Brother calls after you start hitting 5-10 nugget per day with the GPZ ..... Tell him the price is double on the unit if you're working with a relative nearby on the same ground. Give it time, learn the detector, you will be finding much more. It takes awhile to justify the GPZ on small gold, but you're now finding stuff smaller, smaller gold much deeper, larger gold deeper if it's there and gold you wouldn't have found with the SD, GP or GPX series (very porous gold). Thanks for the business. I didn't expect any less from you (find gold wise) to be honest.
  5. Hey Uncle Ron, That is one nugget, but has good character from the looks. It's pretty dirty, I never cleaned it yet.
  6. Hello All, Well the forums have been down. Here is a small nugget, 2.6 Grams I found after field instructions last weekend. Nothing impressive, but a few grams here and there add up. Found with the GPZ 7000.
  7. Hello All, Received dozens of emails and phone calls that the forums went down last night. I guess I never received an email notification that my credit card expired on file with them ...... You might see a small outage again on the forums, as I'm having them updated to the latest version. Please let me know if you have any issues once the new version is installed. Thanks for all the head-ups when it went down. Great to be back online.
  8. Hello All, Come visit Rob's Detector Sales at the upcoming GPAA Phoenix Gold Show, March 12th and 13th (Saturday and Sunday). This years location will be at the Arizona State Fairgrounds.

  9. Hello All, Well, it's that time of the year when customers start calling and scheduling their field instructions. If you purchase a Pulse Induction metal detector (regardless of brand) from Rob's Detectors, we will take you out in the field for a day and train you on that unit for FREE. This including a full day of training, conducted on private claims and you keep anything you find! If you're looking to get training on your unit and purchased elsewhere, we charge $300 for an entire day. We treat you just like you purchased the unit from us! This weekend a trainer and I conducted field instructions with 4 customers. Two of them had Minelab SDC 2300's, the others had GPX 5000's. We broke into groups, spent a good portion of the day on instructions and then some detecting in the field. Two of the customers found gold nuggets, the other two guys due their fair share of targets throughout the day. Overall, the weather was awesome and everyone left with a big smile. Here is a short email from one of the customers - We promise if you purchase from us, we are going to spend the entire time with you, get you trained on your unit and hopefully you can walk away with a nugget to boot. Beyond that, we offer unlimited support beyond the sale. You can email, call, text or chat with us here on the forums for support. Here are a few pictures of the customers during the outing -
  10. Thanks Guys for your comments.
  11. Hey Guys, Yep, there are more, just need to get back out there. I have another piece I'm doing specific gravity on soon. I will post the pictures and data once I do.
  12. Hey Guys, Thanks for the comments. The Sunbaker was found by the same detector, the GPZ.
  13. What is it?

    Hey DesertNuggets, No question it's a gold nugget, but probably more of an Electrum nugget. Many gold nuggets contain a much higher silver percentage, some as high as 20% or more making them an Electrum nugget (80% gold, 20% silver). Hope this helps a bit,
  14. Hello All, Haven't been out too much, but here are 5 small batches of gold nuggets from various placer locations here in Arizona. All the gold was found with my Minelab GPZ 7000. I also found one of the smallest nuggets to date with the GPZ shown below. The piece is .6 grains (480 grains to a Troy ounce). I'm pretty convinced the GPZ can find gold just as small as the SDC 2300 now with the settings I'm using. The SDC just makes the pinpointing portion much easier with the small coil. The tiny dink I told you about, under a grain in size and at about an inch deep on bedrock - How about this Sunbaker sitting right on the bedrock - It's still out there!
