PreMortem: Luckily the 10lb bomb head did not contain any explosive material.When is a bomb not a bomb?
way south: Only the British would take guns out of their house and bring in rusty old bombs.The Empire isn't what it used to be.
BokerBill: Immediate addiction!For the rest of his life, this kid isn't going anywhere without a metal detector.
Sock Ruh Tease: PreMortem: Luckily the 10lb bomb head did not contain any explosive material.When is a bomb not a bomb?When it's a practice bomb. I don't think the Brits were hardcore enough to use explosives in practice bombing runs.
halmot: I got an inexpensive Radio Shack metal detector for Christmas when I was his age. I immediately "discovered," and dug up, the grease trap.
lack of warmth: Harmless like the grenades you can buy at any army surplus store. Why not let the kid keep it as a cool find that he could make a lamp out of it? Oh wait, brits are uptight. I forgot.
Onkel Buck: Pussy, he should have probed for it[i26.photobucket.com image 640x420]

babyty: i've been looking for an inexpensive metal detector, even if it is just a "toy". anyone have any experience with them?
Keigh: metal detectors are "cool"?I have one that my grandpa bought in the 80's for his retirement. It came complete with all the paperwork, theoretically a lifetime warranty (but they store he bought it is out of business) and some notes from a workshop my grandpa attended at a library that I assume was his motivation for buying it. It would be so like me him to think something was really interesting, spend a reasonable amount as an investment, and then only use it a few times.Just ask my toolbox full of arduino stuff and my geocaching gps!Anywho, I only ever see slightly off looking middle aged men using them in general public. To hear that even farkers find them cool for a kid to have is a little surprising, to be honest.Then again, story did happen in Britain, yeah? Am I still cool if I'm a female under 30 with a metal detector? Let's hope so.
