      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 .

LOL I would not recommend hunting with a paintball gun. Very inhumane, much worse than using a pellet. Pellets actually have the power to knock small game down dead. .22 caliber is definitely the way to go with these though, I cannot stress that enough. They do not shoot at the same velocity as the .177 but they pack such a larger punch which is key when taking down rabbits and squirrels.

@ Mule

I wasn't referring to your comments but to others especially those that guarantee it's lethal abilities. I am not upset about it, I just think people shouldn't spread stupid ideas so that some less than bright person hears about it and tries it

I use my paintball gun on chipmunks that get into my barn and into my polebarn because it will not damage anything or ricochet and hit my boat or truck. I would use poison but with my daughter and dogs their is just to much to chance useing it.

I put that guarantee out their so that folks who don't think a paintball gun would kill a critter would maybe think twice. Please don't take it as me promoting the killing of critters with paintball guns.

Box -

you won't face a firearms charge but you probably would get jacked around a bit. If you shot something it may be criminal damage to property, if you shot someone it probably would come out as an assault or disorderly conduct. I must be too old cause I can't see any real reason to own one of these things.

I wasn't thinking about people or using it "bad", but if I can't use a bb gun in the city on squirrels, but I can use paintball gun and not get in trouble, I might just smack a few squirrels (not to kill them, but to give them a fright to stay out of my stuff)... or just to thwack a few targets out back while wasting time.

I just thought it would be same as firing bb gun at empty cans... maybe not though. I do know a retired WBL cop, maybe I should give him a shout... though it really doesn't matter muc to me, as I prolly would not dump the bucks just to tag a stupid squirrel wink

Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!
