Our Story

LMS Metal Detecting | Our Story

  About Us: Metal detecting equipment supplier in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina serving Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas - Trusted by treasure hunters over the last 30 years for the right metal detector, sand scoop, and accessories in the store, online, on the beach, or out in the field. LMS Metal Detecting has you covered.

  Our Story: LMS Metal Detecting originated in the late eighties by three friends that shared a passion for treasure hunting. What started out as quest to locate an unnamed treasure has evolved over the years into very large band of brothers and sisters. While the treasure still remains lost, we found our way into the commercial realm of metal detecting to include, live learning courses, lost jewelry recovery services, tour guides, and a retail store offering metal detecting gear.

Since the beginning of 2017, we offer short term metal detector and sand scoop leasing options for those vacationing in Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas, or for anyone that would like to try metal detecting before committing to a purchase.

In addition to our retail store we can be found on all of your favorite social media platforms. Join the group, share your finds, get questions answered, and see our almost daily posts of whatever is turning up on the beach, or in the fields! You also may want to see our site where you can learn even more about us, check out our calendar of events, group hunts, road trips, code of ethics, metal detecting courses, Myrtle Beach metal detecting rules, and much more.

Over the years it has been our privilege to introduce and educate anyone interested in the hobby of metal detecting, sell products, meet many interesting people, and culture some great friendships. While LMS Metal Detecting, LLC has grown we still retain our group status of well-respected and trusted friends with backgrounds of active duty and retired police officers, government security, history teachers, anthropologists, historians, research analysts, and more. You may have even seen some of us on your favorite television programs or news channels.
