Will The Fisher F44 Have Less Depth With A Big Coil Compared To Other Detectors? (Testing, Answer +)

Exploring German WW2 Bunkers (+photos, finds and video!)

When I first started metal detecting I was thinking about places to detect, so I asked some locals that has lived here a long time. I got a lot of good suggestions, and a veteran told me about a place near the beach where there used to be multiple German bunkers and positions. I had heard that there might have been German positions some place around there by other people,...
