Hey i finally got my first detector an at pro and my first day was pull tabs and lead, second day was 26 cents 2 dimes and 6 Penny's i cant seam to get pass the coins does any one have any info on setting this up i haven't went into pro mode yet but the book is very vague, about finding gold rings and such as gold is in the same range as pull tabs and every time i encounter something it says 6 - 8 inches which allso isn't true because i do 1 scoop with and find the object  any help would be appreciated.

My first observation is that there might not be any rings there for you to dig up.   Pull tabs and coins are a lot more common than rings just about any place you hunt including at the beach.   As for the depth, how far above the ground are you holding the coil?   Get it as close to the ground as possible and you should get a bit more accuracy (not that I have much faith in depth guages to start with).

I don't know where you are but here in Florida where I hunt (old building sites) I generally find 100 pre 1964 pennies before I find one silver coin. Silver rings are a little more common and a gold ring I have yet to find in 2 years. The AT Pro is a good machine. I tried one out and it is hot but you got to get it set up right. I started with a ACE 250 and it took me a year to get good with it. The learning curve with the AT Pro is going to be longer because it has more options. The results will be better.  Cool
