      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 .

Simmons 8 Pt

Recommended Posts

fishin58

The sope is an 8 pt 3-9X 40, I was considering buying this scope from another guy, does anybody have any pos/neg advice on this scope. I am a shotgunner and I do not have much experience with scopes. I was considering this scope for my muzzleloader and pros/cons and putting it on that? Thanks in advance

I have this same scope on my Marlin lever action .35 Remington. My only issue is with the eye relief. You really have to be perfectly inline to see out the scope. I have only used this scope and a Leupold and I don't remember having any issues with the Leupold, but I have an issue just about everytime with my Simmons.

If you are able to mount this on your gun and try it out, maybe you won't have an issue. The Marlin is a shorter gun and I have a long body, so it may be me and not the scope at all.

Of course, the Leupold that I was using was on a Marlin lever action 30-30 and again, I don't remember an issue with that rifle/scope combination.

Just my experience.

Buddy of mine gave me a gun 30-06 with that scope on it. I did some target practice with it, seemed ok. I saw it on sell for $29.95 today

I had one on my savage 17hmr that came as a combo, it seems to work okay, it is not as bright as my burris, but for a 17hmr it works good. I wouldn't give him too much for it, I don't believe simmons even makes that model of scope any more. There is some decent, notice I said decent, glass out there for 100 bucks, whether it stands up to a shotgun is another point

Thanks guys for your imput, I have seen else where, people either say they are complete junk or they are as good as gold. I think I would rely more on peoples perspective off this site. I think I will make the purchase he is selling it for 35 bucks with the rings. Merry X-mas to me!
