Third Party Insurance Competition

Over on the metal detecting forums there is a buzz going around:

In the world of FB we now have a "group" suggesting they will be offering insurance with £20 million cover that also covers machines for £5 a year. Now I would suggest they are sub-selling a policy, much like the NCMD, but will not be supporting the hobby in any way shape or form or provide any accountability for the "profit". Newcomers will be encouraged to buy the cover to go on digs and so on...... [emoticon] Interesting times.
The notion that the NCMD is "supporting the hobby" in any useful way is rather risable. Neither the NCMD nor the FID support the Code of Best Practice for Responsible Metal Detecting in England and Wales.

The £5  a year is cheaper than the NCMD and FID. Let us hope that this new body requires its members to adhere to the official code that begins: "Responsible metal detecting means...", for how else can you insure somebody involved in an activity on another's property that does not undertake from the outset that they are going to undertake that activity responsibly there?

It is high time to put an end to many years of licensed irresponsibility of UK metal detectorists.

Mechanical metal detectors work in various manners. Handheld metal detectors are light weight, radiation free and exceptionally touchy. Little support is required in a large portion of the cases. Other than metal identification, a stroll through metal detector incorporates administrator interface or potentially controls, electro attractive similarity, natural resistance, quality control and affirmation.

Quite, Mr Amjad, it's their exceptional touchiness that I think is their most redeeming quality. Many people find them electro-attractive and often go for a stroll through them. Though I myself prefer strolling - or a dinner date - with eastern European women. I would not know how to talk to a metal detector.
