I'm thinking of purchasing the Whites MXT™ E-Series Metal Detector for a beach trip coming up in June. I've wanted to get a very good metal detector for years now and have just never gotten around to it. Now I'm doing it and I'm looking at this one. Does anyone here have any experience with it? Anybody have any insight into other detectors that I should look at? I'm looking to spend a maximum of $800-$850 total.
I have multiple family members who live on top of old Civil War battle fields so I intend on using it there also.
Also, does anyone know of places where I can actually take a road trip to specifically to use my metal detector? That is to say, are there businesses that actually specialize in "renting" their land for a day or hours for people to metal detect on?
After researching a little bit, I've learned that many states (including Louisiana) require permits to use a metal detector on public lands and are very, very strict about it. Is this true? Should I get a permit before using it on the beach in Florida??
