VLF (Very Low Frequency) metal detectors are by far the most popular machines available today and I'll address that type
of machine on these pages simply because Pulse Induction machines are used in a very limited type of hunting, and would probably
not be an ideal first machine. All of the VLF land use detectors sold today (that I'm aware of) have a mode that allows you
to discriminate out (or not respond to) targets that you consider junk.
Finding the metal detector that's right for you is not that hard if you take a little time and ask yourself some basic
questions. Be completely honest with yourself when you answer them. Please click on the underlined questions and statements
below for more information.
Answering the above statement can cut your choices roughly in half.

How often will I use it?
This can have a bearing on your choice because of cost factors and ease of use. This page is still
being worked on, please bear with me.
