      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I have seen many guns for sale on this site, and plan to sell one of my own off soon. I have never sold, only bought guns, and my question, is there any legal issues you have to deal with when selling a gun from one individual to another? When buying from dealers there is red-tape, wondering about person to person.

I've bought guns through gunsamerica and private sellers. The safest way to transfer ownership of a gun is to go to your nearest dealer. The new owner will have to go through the NICS background check and the dealer will usually charge about $20 for this service. Guns can only be mailed to an FFL holder unless it is going to be repaired. Going to a gun dealer protects the seller from possibly selling to someone who can't legally own a gun, or once the gun has left your possession if it is ever used in a crime it won't be traced back to you. From the buyers standpoint is also protects them from buying a stolen gun.

Wait a minute you guys! You mean to tell me that Billy Bob can' take his old Model 12 over to Frumpy Joes house and just sell it to him. F. Joe hands B.Bob some cash and the deal is done. Who else knows?. Is it anybody elses business? How many guns do you think trade hands just this way. How many guns do you think change hands the other way....run to the dealer, pay him some money, fill out some forms etc.etc.

Gimme a break. mad.gif

Yes it can be done, but the best way to avoid troubles after Frumpy Joe shoots his best friend for a forum discussion about guns is to have it certified on paper grin.gif

I would be more cautious about a handgun, I know all firearms are dangerous, but, handguns can be identified by a registered owner at some point, unless stolen new, or bought/handed down, prior to the gun laws. Rifles and shotguns to my knowledge are not yet required to be registered. Thus no paper trail. Good? bad? I will not make that call. But, I know a few people that are not allowed to hunt (at least for a few more years) that have shotguns and rifles.

These guys are not allowed to purchase handguns... I do not know if it is legal for these guys to have firearms in possession, but, I was not sitting in court with them either.

I was given a .22 revolver about 13 years ago, (elderly relative), I did not think anything of it, I have not registered it and it remains in a locked safe. I should bring it in and have it registered.

Does it matter on the size of a handgun if it needs to be registered?

Wooo there!

Don't sign away your gun rights so easily. We don't have mandatory firearm registration in Minnesota. The government has no business knowing what firearms law abiding citizens own.

I may be wrong but I believe all records of firearm transactions through NICS background check are to be destroyed after a time period to protect your rights.

You can't knowingly sell or buy firearms for someone with a felony. You'd do better by locking your guns up because gang bangers aren't going to buy your guns, they'll steal them.

I was merely concerned about the handgun, as I thought they had to be registered. confused.gif

I know rifles and shotguns are not registered.

Not signing rights away, just making sure I am a law abiding citizen. If the handgun does not need to be registered I will not register it... but, on the other hand.

stmichael, the hand gun of your grandfathers that was passed down does not need to be registered nor does any hand gun bought from a private sale.

Fellas, I am just sick to my stomach at what I read here. Look what they've done to sportsmen and gun owners....quibbling and fretting about a simple transaction. You do NOT have to run anywhere to "register" your weapons (except for certain class III firearms) Purchase records are supposed to be destroyed (by law) after a set period.

If Frumpy Joe shoots Billy Bob after an argument about a Forum....thats F.Joe's problem....he violated a statute that prohibits that sort of thing! Got nuttin to do with B.Bob selling him an old shotgun or an old Colt Navy revolver. Egads boys, lets not make this gun nonsense any worse than it is.

Thank you very much for your time and goodnight. grin.gif

If you are concerned with a used gun you are buying, or a person you are selling to, give your local sheriffs dept a call, they will gladly give you the info, about the gun, or a felony that a person has.

I think you guys are making this a bigger deal than it really is. Yes, you can buy a gun out of the paper or other classified add face to face, but the buyer in this case will assume all liability (like criminal charges of buying stolen property). I wouldn't go out and register all the guns in your posession. In any type of distant fiream transaction where you have no relationship with the person, I would meet up at gun dealership or have it mailed to the dealer you want to pick up the gun as I described earlier. It is a fairly simple process, it takes about 10 minutes for the gun dealer to fill out a transfer of ownership form and a 5 minute phonecall.

Good idea. Now if you rob the local bank and happen to leave the gun behind you will have plenty of time to get away while the police are questioning your friends. shocked.gifwink.gif

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
