Metal detector allowed in Turkey?

To make my walks on the beach in the offseason a little more interesting, I`m thinking about buying a metal detector and using it on the public beaches.

Are there any laws against this? I`m not planning to use it in any areas which could be considered historic in any way (I know for sure that would mean trouble), just on the beach.

Does anybody know for sure?

They are on sale in Turkey, but I am sure using them on beaches is not allowed. As said, check with Jandarma or Police first.
