      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 .

G20, G22 shooting issues

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

A couple of people on other threads have said they had trouble shooting their Glocks -- wondering if any others have changes the sights and if it made a difference?

Any and all thoughts, please.

Thanks

Some people have a hard time with glocks when they first get them. If you are limp wristed your glock will act up. From the elbows down you have to keep consistant form. This shouldn't be a problem if you have shooting experience.

I did not like the "post and dot" factory sites on my g23 so I had trijicon 3 dot greens put on. After adjusting for windage the gun shoots great. I have shot thousands of rounds threw it, as many as 250 in a day and have never had a jam, failure to feed, failure to fire, nothing.

Hitman:

What do you mean by "trouble shooting"? I might be able to give you some suggestions as I am a certified Glock armorer and firearms instructor. Is the weapon failing to operate correctly or is the operator failing \:\) Where are the rounds hitting in relation to where you are aiming?

I am not saying this is true in your case...but in my experience, the vast majority of shooting problems has little to nothing to do with the actual weapon. It can be traced back to the basic stuff. Stance, grip, sight alignment, trigger pull, flinching..etc. I would rule out the above before moving the sights on the weapon.

As far as sights go...that is something worth checking into. I have the three dot night sight system on my 22c and its ok. If you go with such a system, make sure you get rear night sights that are of a different color or shape as compared to front....sounds like common sense but for example, I have seen people sometimes struggle to put the three "green dots" in the correct order while shooting under little to no stress in low light or no light conditions

let me know if I can help you

cliffy,

I have a Paraordance .45, I shoot consistantly high and right, I would appreciate any suggestions. I do not have this issue with other handguns/calibers.

Thanks,

It is almost always low. I am getting used to the trigger but it is a work in progress.

Low and Low to the Right (if you are a right hand shooter) is a classic sign of flinching or anticipating the recoil of the weapon. I have struggled with this same problem for a long time.

A couple of things that might help ya. First, get your hands on some dummy rounds. You can buy them at most places that sell ammo. Get with a buddy and have him load your mags so you don't have a clue if the round in the chamber is live or inert. Then just shoot and you will see how much of a flinch you really have....it can be amazing to really see.

Some of the best LE shooters I have ever had the pleasure to work with were from my days on the RRV SWAT Team. We would often use this method in practice. It was truly amazing to see a great shooter pull the trigger on a dummy round. The gun never even twitched. I didn't even know they pulled the trigger...only realized they did pull the trigger because they had gone into the tap and rack mode of getting the gun hot again. Amazing!

Also, work on trigger reset. Meaning, once you pull the trigger, hold it back and don't let it go forward. Once you are ready, slowly let it go forward until you hear the click of the trigger reset. This will take all the slack or slop out of the trigger for the next round. I sometimes see students slapping the trigger on the Glocks because there is so much up-take. This tip really help me when I was struggling with this problem.

I tell you what Hitman, once spring rolls around.....we can hook up and I will take you up to the Moorhead Range and we can work on this issue. Who knows, maybe I am totally wrong and there is another cause for the low shooting.

Take care

I gotta be honest, I am lost for an answer. Seems odd that it only happens with this weapon? Is this the biggest caliber hand gun you shoot? Not seeing you shoot....I am taking a wild guess...but if its isolated to only this gun...could it be the sights or how you are making your sight alignment?

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
