  1. Hey Chris I think you done a great job and I'm looking forward to the next one. Chuck
  2. Rob I had look later and found where you have to go on line but I thank you anyway. I know you sent it right away but the trouble comes from what you don't have control over. When I need something else I will be knocking at your door. I too will let you know how well I like my GM 1000. Hope to be in gold country by the end of the month. I've got different weight nuggets to test my GM 1000 ahead of time. Chuck
  3. Well I got home and all is right in the world of Chuck. My Gold Monster 1000 was here and the box looked good on the outside. When I open the Minelab box I could see the wait was worth it. I put the battery supply on charge and then put the GM 1000 together. I found that the stand fit me best at about half way on the end shaft. I checked the GM against other detector I have and found they all fall in about the same. The only trouble with this is I have half of a shaft that I don't need plus it's in the way.. One thing I didn't find a warranty card. I guess what I need to know should I had one? Chuck
  4. Well I looked later and FedEx had changed the delivery date from 6-13-27 back too today I called my wife to see if they came but just got home. Lucky they didn't come yet. She text me a short time later and my GM 1000 had come. FedEx oh oh boy before I couldn't spell it and now I R one. Chuck
  5. Now they being FedEx show delivery date of 6-13-17 I didn't ask them to change it but I guess this is my punishment for not being happy with their service Chuck
  6. You have a great dealer like Rob and when he gets your detector in he ships it. The trouble starts when he hands over your detector to a shipping company. He gave mine to FedEx and from day one they show delivery date 6-09-17. I had a place I needed to go then but change the day to Saturday to leave town. I sit here all day long because I needed to sign for . Oh they were still saying it would be delivered by the end of the day. When it came to the end of the day I call to hear it won't come until tomorrow. I go back on line and now they say they don't have a delivery date plus at 6:55 PM it was in Fort Worth Texas. I guess one day whenever that is I'll get it. If it does come tomorrow my wife may be here. Right now being FedEx don't show a date then how am I to know. Chuck
  7. That is a great paper weight you found. it was good you found a nugget that will hold down all the paper needed to be held down. Even if it didn't I don't think I would throw it away. The best to you on the next time you're out hunting paper weights. Just maybe luck will come your way and you could find some gold too. Chuck
  8. It's said Things Come to He Who Wait. Well I've been waiting on the Gold Monster 1000 from day one more or less from the first I heard about it. About 8:15 Texas time I got that call I've been waiting on from Rob's detectors sales. It was the man himself telling me he had a lot of Gold Monster 1000 will be going out tomorrow and what makes me happy is one has my name on it You who is buying a Gold Monster 1000 from Rob if you will please keep track of the smallest nugget found. At a later date I'll give away a pick I made for the smallest nugget found. This pick has never been used but I can assure you if you win it you will be happy with it. I'll start this contest maybe by the end of July if not later. I just want to give people time to get out and find gold with the GM Just remember the Monster has to come from Rob and the nugget has to be the smallest. So keep track of what you find. On your word will be enough of the size of nugget you found. You will have to know the weight not a ball park guess.Haha Chuck PS I'll ship free to lower 48.
  9. I've seen some reviews on the Gold Monster 1000 not here but over on Steve H. forum. it's not a 7000 but it's said good on small gold. One thing about the Monster it's not a high dollar detector but it will let people who don't have a lot of money get in on nugget hunting. In past years I've had 17000, GP Extreme, 3500, 4500 and now I've got the Monster on order from Rob. Some may say I'm advancing to the rear. That is not the case. My trouble is I'm getting older and can't leap tall buildings as I did in the past. Oh yes I know I can get things that will help me overcome the weight problem but I'm not out there to get rich, only to enjoy. Rob this is just to let you know I'm still waiting.Haha The Best friend. Chuck.
  10. I do believe it's been worth the wait. I will be finding out how good it is on small gold. The State I'm going to has a sign when you enter saying small gold only. Ha Chuck
  11. Yes I do remember. The only trouble was that I had loan one of my Minelab nugget detector to a friend and he found it with my detector. Now this may not count but I do remember that day. Chuck
  12. Rob I say don't feel too bad about not getting any GM 1000. The man downunder we all know called JP is having the same trouble. He too said he's coming up short and like you his phone is ringing off the hook. That is a great write up Steve done on the GM 1000. Lunk also done a good one too that's posted on Steve's forum Chuck
  13. That would be great news to hear the Gold Monster 1000 is waiting for Rob to be pickup on Monday. Chuck.
  14. You're Ok Jen I like your humor. Chuck
  15. Of all things I get June issue of Lost Treasure yesterday but can't find a word about the Gold Monster 1000. Minelab not saying a word until Gm1000 is out. If I had Golden hair like you Jen just maybe I could spin gold out of nothing. Then take that gold and go buy the 7000 to find more gold. My trouble is here I am with gray hair and I can't remember what color it was years ago. I do have a wife that did have golden hair but I know now it's comes out of a bottle. Oh well I'll just swing my GM 1000 when I get it and be happy. That's what it's all about Being Happy. Chuck
