Tom is basing his answer on the type of places he hunts and for those places he's right, but most places aren't hunted as hard as where he hunts. Where I hunt has some of the same type places, but there are also literally hundreds of places in this area where your Garrett would do well. Only one of the silver coins I've found this year was deeper than your Garrett will detect them, and of the hundreds of newer coins I've found this year only maybe 20 would have been out of range of your Garrett. One thing your Garrett TR discriminator will do, because it has a non-motion disc mode, is to find good targets mixed in with iron better than most modern detectors. One of my too many detectors is a 1974 100 khz Compass TR with a 6.5 inch coil that I enjoy using. It can barely detect a quarter three inches deep, but I find a lot of coins and an occasional gold or silver jewelry item with it. You can do the same with your Garrett TR by being selective about the sites you hunt.
