Here’s a list of our favorite Metal Detecting Forums. These Forums discuss everything related to the metal detecting world:

American Detectorist

“While our focus is mainly on coin and relic hunting, we also enjoy and participate in shallow water detecting. We have many members who live on the coast or near freshwater lakes and regularly metal detect at such locations, often finding jewelry and old coins.

The information you find here and within our metal detecting forum covers all aspects of our metal detecting hobby, and will appeal to both beginners and advanced detectorists.”

Detector Prospector

“Now a little history for those totally new to the forum. I used to hang out on all the other forums. The problem over time is I kept bumping into rules. No mentioning certain brands or dealers for fear of offending sponsoring dealers. That will never happen here as the forum members come first. The one that really irritated me was no links to all sorts of things, like other forums. Here, if the subject matter is relevant, please link to it! No silly “Google it” games etc.

And then there are the trolls. People who just like to stir things up. Childish and rude people. Tons of off topic garbage to wade through to find decent information. Etc. I just got tired of it all because over time it all got worse as forums became more commercial.

I started these forums to escape all that and with the goal of attracting like minded people who are also tired of all the nonsense. So the main thing here is very, very simple. With the possible exception of this forum, keep discussions on the particular forum subject matter. Be a decent person and better yet, try to help others. On topic, be good – it really is that simple here.”
