      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 .

new shotgun questions

Recommended Posts

I was looking for some advice on purchasing a new shotgun. Right now i have a 20ga 870 that i love and has performed flawlessly. However, it is i right handed gun and i shoot lefty. It has not been to big of a problem however, when i get a 12ga i want a left handed gun that fits me.

I was wondering what some of my options. where for a pump action gun. I have looked at the bps from browning which is totally ambidextrious, however i had a friend that had one that jammed a lot. I have looked into left handed 870s but i dont know if i can get a deer barrel for one.

Anybody got any suggestions or expierience with the issue.

Thanks for any help.

The 870 has numerous barrels that can be interchanged, from skeet to fully rifled slug barrels. I love mine (it was a hand-me-down from my dad) and have never had any issues with it. I'm looking at getting the 23" Turkey Super Mag barrel for the upcoming spring.

I have a 20 gauge BPS and a 12 Gauge BPS. The only time I had problems with the 12 gauge jamming was due to me not getting the for-end all the way forard before the next shot.

My 20 and 12 have been flawless. Looking to potentially sell the 20 since my eye does not line up on the barrel.

I am also of the more "superior eye" :-) Left hand shooters as well...

Mine is a 28 inch barrel

Hastings makes slug barrels for the left handed 870's.

If its not broke, don't fix it. If you love your 870, but another, I have a few sets of 20's and 12's in my safe.

I would have to say the smae thing. If you like an 870, stick with that. I shoot a BPS and love it. Both my brothers also shot one and we are all very happy. My younger brother had a little trouble with his gun when it was new, but after he got a few boxes of shells through it has had no trouble.
