Announcements - May 2017


After nearly 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 probably before the end of June, 2017. My wife and I are over 84 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.

2 See our May Specials for great buys on our Retirement Sale. All Tesoros, Teknetics, Fisher, and Makro Racers will be selling at or below cost while they last. We have over 160 new and pre-owned metal detectors to dispose of, and hundreds and hundreds of accessories and parts. It's an awesome task. Help!

3 Attention all XP Deus owners: The long awaited V4 program may now be downloaded and installed on your instrument. The V4 Update Program and Manual are available from the XP Deus website. There are some neat new features with this program. All new XP Deus detectors sold at Gettysburg Electronics will have this updated program.

The new MI-6 Waterproof Pinpointers are on order, and should be available this month. These pinpointers can give the signal right in the wireless headset. The V4 program is required for this option.

The new XP Deus 9" round waterproof DD high frequency search coil, which must be operated with the V4 program, is now available. See the XP Deus website for the unique features of this coil.

4 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.

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

6 White's will no longer make available the 4.8 volt NiCad batteries for the Pro series, including the 5000s, Blue & Gray Pro, etc. We have just 3 left, priced at $44.95. The battery holders that hold 4 C-size batteries are still available at $9.95 each.

7 The new hot-off-the-press American Digger Volume 13, Issue 3, is currently available from Gettysburg Electronics. It's a really great issue.

8 Attention all Rockhounds: Our grandson, Ben Hinks, has a rock and mineral shop at the rear of the store,called "Ben's Rock Shop". Stop in to see his semi-precious rocks and gems, geodes, fossils, meteorites, jewelry, etc., all at very reasonable prices! Currently, everything priced $10.00 or more is 50% off, and everything $1.01 to $9.99 gets rounded down to the nearest dollar, both great discounts. Be sure to visit his website: Remember, you can't beat Ben's deals!
