After my recent posts about opportunists, I received a lot of emails and comments regarding takers. I thought the problem was reserved to just a few people here and there, but from the response, it seems there is a lot of “taking” going on.
I had some suspicions about a detecting pal. My intuition was throwing big, huge, red flags in my face, and I couldn’t shake it. Well, I just got proof I was right. Thank-you intuition, I knew there was a reason I didn’t feel comfortable hunting with them anymore.
So please, if you’re a taker, take your machine someplace else. There are folks who have spent years fostering trust and friendships with others in the hobby, and we don’t appreciate those that don’t understand what a true “Detecting Buddy” is.
