Ron Shore's Bio

My name is Ron Shore and I have been metal detecting since 1975

I am also the owner of Windy City Detector Sales & Rental, a metal detecting retail dealer in Chicago since 1985.

I am very excited about being a part of Chris Turner's expanding Ring Finder team, and welcome the opportunity to help people find those precious pieces of jewelry that mean so much to them and that they thought they would never see again.

I employ only the latest detecting equipment along with many years of experience to find your lost item both on land and in the shallow water.

When you choose me for the job, you are assured a professional search conducted with integrity. You assign the value of finding your lost valuables as payment for my services rendered.

I love this job and I look forward to helping you find what you thought was lost forever!
