      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 .

O/U for left handers

Recommended Posts

MinnesotaMongo

I am looking for an O/U and am left handed. I am NOT going to spend 1200 plus right off the bat. I am going to look lower/middle of the road. Im a casual shooter, just getting back into the hobby after a LONG hiatus.

I have had a lot of advice so far - mostly telling me that I will be dissatisfied with most O/U's since they are designed for right handers. I thought I would ask any of you that have experience shooting left handed with O/Us. Any advice?

Thanks.

I just bought a O/U this fall and shoot left handed as well. So far it doesn't seem to be a problem, but I haven't hunted any birds with it yet.

MinnesotaMongo,

Whoever told you this either doesn't know what they are talking about or misunderstood your question. With the exception of the top-lever pushing to the right the average o/u it ambidextrous. Higher end o/u's can have some cast off which is bad for a lefty. As a lefty I can tell you that you will have no issues with an o/u.

Well, I guess I assumed that all O/Us have that castoff - one gunsmith cautioned me about buying one of his O/U's unless I had him rebed it (I think that's what he said) for me for 175 bucks.

Thanks for all the info. I just didn't want to lay out all that dough and find out that it won't work for me.

Then again, I could have a handy excuse for crappy shooting..... wink.gif

I gotta a chance yesterday to pick up one of the new Mossberg o/u...nice tight lock up, a little barrel Heavy I thought, but overall a nice looking mid range o/u. Gander had them at $599. Lot of engraving on it as well, I am sure it was machined in somehow, but looks like a nice gun. 2 3/4 and 3" rounds.

When my brother pheasant hunts, he uses my beretta o/u and really doesn't have a problem, besides that he is a lefty grin.gif

Find a O/U that fits your needs and have fun

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
