    metal detector

    As my retirement plan consists of finding buried treasure, does anyone know where they sell metal detectors in HK?

    There's a very old thread on this but the only ideas then was 'Kowloon' and 'Queensland Aus'.

    Thanx

    Not keen on minelab brand, prefer Garrett or Fisher or... so was hoping that there might be a retailer (haaahaaa)... and also wanted a Garrett pointer - will probably have to resort to eBay.

    These guys sell new and pre owned metal detectors http://www.minersdenmelbourne.com.au/ I've used them before and they know their stuff. If shipping costs a fair, maybe they can pop a detector in the post, ship to Hong Kong ?

    Are you going to use it for beach-combing, Tiger ?

    Thanx for the link.

    If I tell you where I'm lookin' for treasure, I'd have to kill you.

    Tried the dealer contact in China from the Garrett website?

    Out of curiousity...where would you plan to use a metal detector in HK? Seems to me there is so much junk everywhere, that most of what you would find would be worthless??

    Help needed

    Hello,
    I saw you post on a thread about metal detectors. My wife has dropped wedding and engagement rings on Tai Long Wan beach in Sai Kung. We know the rough spot and hope to find it. Are you able to help?

    How big of an area is the suspected location... size of a bed... a room... a house... or?

    Also, is the location above high tide?
