Just wish to give a little introduction. My name is Corey Osmundson and I live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area of Minnesota in the city of Champlin. I have been a metal detectorist for over 20 years and have always been intrigued by the many facets of this great hobby. Just months after buying my first detector, my wife was talking with a co-worker one day at her job and her friend began telling her a very heartbreaking story of how her husband had just recently lost a large gold and diamond ring in the shallow water of their Lake Minnetonka home. He was doing some work on their boat lift when the ring slipped off his finger and disappeared into about three feet of water. The gentleman had searched for a long time to locate the ring, but had no luck. My wife then mentioned that her husband, (that would be me), just happened to own a metal detector and would be glad to try to help him recover his ring, which was an anniversary gift from his wife. To make a long story short, it took me less than fifteen minutes of my time to locate that beautiful gold and diamond ring and get it back on his finger! It was one of the best feelings I can ever remember, and I hope to get that opportunity again many times by being a part of the great Ring Finders organization!
