      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 .

What brand to buy?

Recommended Posts

slick2526

Well I i always see people argueing about wich one is better. remington or savage as far as out of the box accuracy. I decided im going to go with a .30-06. I have not decided the brand yet tho

I have narrowed it down to 3 a savage,remington, or a tika. If some of you would like to give me some opinions of them i would appreciate it. Im not going to be buying one with a heavy target barrel since is going to be mainly for deer hunting. but i will not have sights tho, just a scope. also im looking at one with a wood stock and a blued barrel and then I will buy a synthetic stock afterwards.

Mainly what one will be the most accurate, easiest to adjust the trigger, and best resale value. I dont really plan of selling since im left handed and it will be a left handed bolt. I guess im really looking for accuracy more than anything. so any help would be appreciated. thanks

I think they are all fine products. Pick the one you like the best. The Weatherby Vanguard is also a very accurate out of the box gun that is a decent value.

I have two Whitetail Hunter Tikka's, one in 30.06,the other in .270.The action of these guns is the smoothest I have ever owned for a standard(non customized) rifle.Accuracy is right on out of the box.You can't go wrong with a Tikka.

I have a Ruger 77 that is my go-to gun for accuracy. In all its years, it has never had a bit of trouble.

I hate to throw another gun into your mind but I am also Left handed and I shoot a Ruger M77 270. I think it took me about 3 shots to have it in the ten ring and a few more to get it dialed down to take the "10" out of the target. It is always on target and I love to shoot it.

before picking a brand look a little more at what you want. Clip or No Clip. IF you do want a clip check out the differnt styles of clip. Don't buy just because of brand but because of the features you like. Bolt action Browning is hard to beat. I went with Ruger because I like a blocky forend for when I shoot and I like the 3 position safety. Buddy don't like the 3 point safety but went with the Browning because he likes the bolt and the clip. Sometimes I wish my Ruger had a clip but it don't. Go into your dealer when they have guns and see what you like. Looking at a gun online and seeing how it feels in your hands is another. See what you like in your hands and then shop around for that gun.

I looked at all brands in the 25-06 range. I went with the Tikka, the feel of the stock, out of box accuracy, comes with a clip, free floating barrel, safety position, and smooth bolt action really sold me on this gun. And I bought it for the same price as a Remington 700ADL!! I will definitely buy another Tikka...just can't decide whic caliber I need next.
