I didn't think so.
The chance of you finding large meteorites is so slim that you would have a better chance of guessing their next door neighbors iPhone 4s passcode. (4 spots 10 possibilities per = 10000 possible codes.)
There is however a much easier way that I will now show you how to do. The biggest material it requires? Your local beach.
You will be collecting dust but after a while, it collects.
This is a fun novelty to collect and have on your office desk as well as also proving to be very cool. I mean, how many people get to say "I have a meteorite on my office desk." ?
Step 1: What!? No Metal Detector!?
1 local (or very far away) beach
Step 2: The Element of Surprise
Have the other bag opened and ready to store your findings.
This is you search device.
Step 3: Collections.
Step 4: Done.
Although what you say is true, over certain periods of time as meteorites will impact and they enter Earth's atmosphere, they burn up into dust. A beach is a ideal spot to collect the dust because the sand will not absorb the dust.
