Unless you're independently weathly and have the rest of your life wandering
the known strewn fields I'd get a couple of meteorite dealers catalogs and
hunt them that way. Some have some very good deals.

Seriously tho, you'd need a metal detector, a map of a known strewn field that
isn't "fished out," and lots and lots and lots (infinity sign) of patience.
