      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 .

Built in Gun Cabinet

Recommended Posts

mskyfshntchr

We recently purchased a different house and need to put in a gun cabinet.

I have a closet that has some extra room and I am going to build it into that. There will be a coat rack in front of it. I have room to make it 1' deep and the size of the closet, which is about 4' wide and 7' tall.

I want to build it as concealed as possible. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on a concealed lock system so if someone was to look behind the jackets, it would look like the wall. It could be something you designed or something I can buy.

Also, if you have any other tips for me that you have found useful in your gun cabinet.

Thanks!

Make sure the back of your cabinet is not an exterior wall, you will have moisture problems.

Have you considered a gun safe instead? You should be able find the right size to fit in your closet, and you can save money on your homeowners insurance policy which will pay for the safe in a few years. Some are also fireproof and you won't have to worry about children getting into it when your not around.

Just my .02:

I purchased a safe 5 years ago and it has been a great investment. Not only does it keep my "tools" safe, it also serves as a safe deposit box. I keep passports, Social Security Cards, checks, extra cash (if there is such a thing), and any other important documents you want to keep from fire or others. Liberty used to make a safe door that could be used in a "built-in" safe. Hope this helps.

I agree with you fishwithteeth. It also helps with getting the better-half to consent to the purchase when she knows that some of her valuables like jewlery will also be protected. liberty and browning are top of the line and offer combination storage areas and gun shelving.

My current gun safe is too small. I never thought about playing the wife card for a gun safe. I know that we have enough stuff like licenses, sscards, savings bonds, etc, that we could use a safe. THanks for the ideas.
