Announcements - August 2017


After more than 45 years of being in the store six days a week, 52 weeks a year, Joan and I reluctantly announce the closing of the store in the near future. My wife and I are over 85 years old, and have both had a stay in the hospital. We have loved what we have been doing, and especially loved our repeat customers over the years. We will miss you all. We will still be in Gettysburg, and will be happy to help those needing any assistance. The Lord has always been good to us, but there comes a time in life where you just wear out. Pray for us. We are just worn out!

2 See our August Specials for great buys on our Retirement Sale. All Tesoros, Teknetics, Fisher,Minelab, and Makro Racers will be selling at or below cost while they last. We have around 120 new and pre-owned metal detectors to dispose of, and hundreds and hundreds of accessories and parts. It's an awesome task. Help!

3 Since 1980, the Pen Mar Historical Recovery Association, a metal detectorists club with members from south-central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland, has been a place where guys and gals can meet others who enjoy the detecting hobby. There are bi-monthly meetings (usually at the National Apple Museum in Biglerville), an annual hunt each October, opportunities to display items located with your detector, etc. See Pen Mar News for more information on this organization and the upcoming meetings.

4 The Garrett Z-Lynk Wireless System is now available at Gettysburg Electronics. You can now go wireless using your favorite headphones. See our August Specials for discounted pricing.

5 Garrett has announced that their new model AT Max has been updated with the addition of a built-in volume adjustment feature, allowing control of the detector volume when operated without headphones. Due to the updates, current plans are to begin shipping around the middle of August. The MSRP is $849.95. The MAP is $722.45.
