This is not at all what I mean. I have done my research and I feel that I have purchased one of the best detectors. I may have stated the question in a poor manner. I have lived in Virginia all my life where detectors are illegal, and I obviously have no hands on experience. I just wanted to know what some owners thought about the ease of use, effectiveness, etc. I have no doubts of my purchase, I just want to be able to use it to its fullest potential.
