      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 .

Beretta shot gun info wanted

Recommended Posts

TTfromBlaine

ok guys I need a little help here, I'm considering buying a Beretta AL 391 Teknys on monday its used but less then a box of shells thru it,but just out of curiousity I went looking around and seen some others but a couple had pitting or some type of blemishs on the reciever which makes it very ugly. does anybody know if this was a problem that Berreta had or just lack of care??

P.S. Tom from Blaine is back. grin.gif (the divorce thing had me on the ropes for a couple of rounds thats why I missed some of the get togethers this year) frown.gif

I have not owned a Teknys but I have two other Beretta shotguns and I would have to say that the pitting would be from a lack of care.

IMO Berettas are some of the finest fire arms there are.

Thanks caseymcq, I was really hoping to hear that, from someone other than an employee where I want to buy the gun at, I've owned a few differnt makes and models in the past(all pumps) and have always liked the berreta's. didnt plan on spending that much grin.gif but got tired of trying to figure out which camo gun was mine lying in the back of the truck grin.gif

Welcome back Tom. I wouldn't shy away from a Beretta.

Any gun will rust if not stored properly. Vinyl gun cases whether they be a hard or soft case won't let air flow so storing a gun in them isn't recommended. Bringing in a gun out of the cold and into a warm house will cause condensation. I leave the gun in the case till it warms up then uncase it and oil it. Leave the case wide open to dry any moister that might be in there. Oiling before and after use along with periods in between storage time and definitely if the barrel has been touched.

Thanks S.T., also for the info on the vinyl gun cases,I was fairly sure that was what I was seeing but not completely, now as far as cases go I was thinking going "retro" like the old material like on a carhart jacket but nicely padded on the inside possibly with some of that new micro fibre stuff inside, anybody seen anything like that or have recommendations, any and all would be helpful.

I have that very gun in a trap model with a 6 oz shock absorber in the stock. Sweet shooting and I have had no problem with it at all. As mentioned before, any gun will rust if not taken care of. Finger prints and sweat is often times one of the worst things on a gun.

the type of gun case your are looking for sounds like a boyt case. The outside material is like a carhartt and is padded and has a heavy duty brass zipper and a leather strap and leather end. I have a benelli for sale in this forum and in the picture is a boyt case.They are a little pricy at around 80.00.

Well I finally had time to take it apart and get somewhat familiar with the pieces, oil it up and see my self hunting with it grin.gif now I just need to get out and shoot a couple boxes of shell thru it,( I did'nt know about breaking in a auto gun )at least thats what I've been told. I ended up with an Allen case that has a material that I was looking for in camo and its heavley padded also has a shoulder strap. I guess that marcum will have to wait till next year grin.gif thanks for all the input guys...

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.

      I'm 4-5 hours South, but my cousin texted me yesterday and said guys are walking out from the North side of French.  He said there's still open water on the South side though.
