      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 .

XD Handgun.....Imput Please

Recommended Posts

I'm Looking at purchasing another handgun. I own a couple now. I have a Ruger KP89 9mm and a Glock 23 40SW. I am hearing great things about the new Springfield XD. I want a new sub compact for conceal and carry so I am looking at various guns. One guy at Cabela's told me that they sell very few Glocks anymore since the XD came to market. I have held it and it feels and points great. If you close your eyes and raise the gun, then open your eyes, the sights are almost always lined up. What are some of your experiences with this gun? I am definitely leaning toward this gun instead of another Glock. Before holding this gun, I couldn't have imagined buying anything but another Glock. I need some imput from some XD owners!

Thanx

Nate

I bought one in the 40 cal. 4 inch service model. I had never had a handgun before this so I have nothing to compare it to, but it sure is a dream to shoot. I am very satisfied. The main selling point for me was the way it felt in my hand and the safetys. Oh yeah, the 2 clips, holster, speed loader, clip holder and carrying case was a (Contact Us Please) good deal also.

Wife just won an XD in .45 at an NRA banquet and I've got about 50 rounds through it is all, but it does shoot great and it does feel great in the hand! First auto for me and it is fun to pull trigger on that thing!!

A couple of guys I work with have purchased them. (2) .45's and a .40, and they are very happy with them. I may purchase one along with another coworker. They have offered to let me shoot them so I'll try to report back. Any other input would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

I have the XD9 (9mm) and like it a lot. Haven't put all that many rounds through it yet but it feels/shoots good in my opinion.

I have an XD45 4" and I really like it, I would recommend it over a Glock just because as you mentioned, close your eyes, bring it up, and you are on target. Its a full size, OK to carry, conceals nice, but 14 rounds gets heavy if you have the mag fully loaded.

Like all handguns it’s personal fit/taste. Glocks, SA, CZ, FNH all make reliable firearms, its what fits your hand and how you shoot that makes the difference. I’ve got a XD .45, that I really like. I looked at Glocks and they didn’t fit my hand very well.

I’d recommend taking a run up to Bill’s in Robbinsdale, they’ve got a good selection of XD’s you can rent (They’ll take the rental costs off your purchase). See how you like it Vs getting an expensive door stop from internet advice.

Well I pulled the trigger myself, so to speak, and got a 4" .40 service XD a bit ago, and shot it for the first time this last weekend. I have no regrets thus so far, other than not getting it as cheap as others seem to. The only other pistol I was interested in was the new SW M&P, but didn't like the trigger feel on it. Otherwise I was very close to purchasing that instead. Any one here have any thoughts on the M&P?

I finally bought one myself a couple weeks ago. I bought the subcompact 3.5" 40 S&W, stainless. I've put about 300 rounds through it. I love it, very accurate. I actually like it better than my Glock 23.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were
