      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 .

My daughter has started hunting some and I am wondering what other women are using for a gun. Looking for a 12 gauge auto. She didn't like my Browning. Any suggestions???

If you are talking shot gun, I would go with a 20 ga, 12 ga is alot of gun for a young girl just starting out.

My daughter just passed firearm safety training and while there she shot a Mossberg 500 Bantam and loved it. I bought her one, but the only problem is that it is a pump, but she loves it. She has a small frame and it fits her very well.

The recoil is very comfortable for her and the gun wasn't very expensive.

She is 30 years old and pretty strong. She can handle a 12 gauge. She did last year, but like i said she didn't like the gold hunter. Just wondering if anyone had any other good options to look at. Thanks

I have a remington 1187 sp, it has been a good gun for me, no problems, very accurate, I have had it for about 10yrs.

I'm a bit prejudice, but I have always been a fan of 16 ga's....actually bought 3 more this year, great for birds and have taken many whitetails with.....

All the guys with 12 vs 20 talk, just to throw in another topic, also own 4 12's, never owned a 20.

I would say the Stoeger 12ga. Parts made by Bennelli so its sure to last. But i have shot one with 3 1/2 inch shells and i will say that the gun has a really good recoil resistance. Just my thought.

Get her a gas operated semi auto 12 gauge. No matter how tough or strong she is she will appreciate a lighter recoiling gun. There are plenty of choices. Personally I like the Beretta AL391 for durability, reliability and soft shooting. It has an adjustable stock - relatively speaking - and is reasonable in the weight category too.

Good luck,

Gauge, make and model should be the last considerations when purchasing a shot gun.

Look at fit #1 issue, weight, action type some pump actions are to long of pulls, some autos can slam a person.

Take her somewhere like Cabelas to kick the tires around and see what feels good. Then go to a quality distributer like a gun club or store such as Ahlmans in Morristown and ask to test fire the same type and style. Then you'll know what works then research that type and check it's reliability function etc.

Also remember is this a single use weapon or do you plan to have it run different tasks, upland,waterfowler, deer, skeet etc.

Just my opinion but these are more important that the flavor of the day. Have some fun with your shopping and good luck...

Before you jump into the "gas-a-matic" mold, have her try an over-under gun. She really only needs two shots and the O/U is strong,simple and reliable. Remington has come out with a nice new model.
