      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 .

AR-15 talk: what is considered a good accurate rifle.

Recommended Posts

Ok, I am on my way to buy a DPMS Panther AR-15 20" SS fluted bull barrel, flat top, Nikon 20x scope, etc., etc.

My MAIN reason is coyote hunting, but also the fun to have a gun like this.

Ok, what is considered a good rifle, and what's the difference between, Colt, Bushmaster, DPMS, Armalite, Rock River, Olympic Arms, etc. ?

I know ARs can get elaborated and prices will reach levels very few can afford, but I am asking about a reasonable compromise.

I can repeat what i have read on other sites: Olympic makes most of their own components and parts including their own barrels. Most of the other manufacturers get their parts from the same pool of companys. I would really suggest you take a look at an Olympic. There is a guy in Bemidji named Mike Milli, he is quite respected when it comes to custom AR's, does some amazing work, and has been selling and working with Olympic parts and barrel for something like 15 years. His on-line name is Dtech on some of the common ar-15 sites. Type his business in your favorite search engine, his companies is dedicated technologies.

Val, if I had the time, I would bring down my olympic K8, 20" stainless bull barrel, flat top with burris glass.... Track Mike down, he is as down to earth as they come and he really knows this AR platform. In fact, he will probably be at the gun show at the fair grounds next weekend, that's is where I got mine last year.....email me if you have other questions: tpickett@priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us

In fact, I am heading out later this afternoon (sunday) to do some calling, I could swing by your place if you have access to land and coyotes..... smile.gif

Picks you were the person I was going to try to get a hold of.

I need you to come around here and play with some calling, last night I had them in my frontyard, they are getting thick, I don't have a lot of time but I will make some to get them thinned up.

Neighbor next to me (city dude) just bought 40 acres and is trying to set it up to have lots of pheasants...I think he's actually calling all the coyotes from 4 states here, we had pheasants last year, I haven't heard one in the last 2 months....

Call me at 612 756 0149 we'll get together.
