      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 .

Youth Waterfowl Shotgun?

Recommended Posts

Last year Gander ( I think) was selling a Youth Shotgun single shot with a .410 and 20G barrel for $90.00. any idea where I could find a deal like this year?

This will be my daughters first year hunting! Safty classes start in August and she is very EXCITED!

Thanks for the help.

I would suggest a Remington SPR100 single shot in 20 gauge. Good solid gun for $100. No hammer and the safety is like other Remingtons so the youngster will be used to it when they move up to a bigger gun.

Thanks for the info Bowfin. I checked Gander last week but didn't see anything in a Youth shotgun?

Anybody know who is selling these this year? (SRP 100 youth Single shot)

I'll start calling around for this gun, it sounds like the perfect gun for a beginner.

Thanks again Bowfin.

I would look into a youth model 870. Take the "guts" out of the magazine and convert it to a single shot until she is ready for multiple shots.

I bought a NEF 20ga/243 combo for my kid a couple years ago and the 243 is tack driver but the 20ga has got heavy recoil so I would suggest the youth 870 also my son doesnt like the recoil and I even put a recoil pad on it. and it still packs a good wolup so but he didnt have the reach for my old springfield 20 until this year so I modified the stock and he loves it. now my other so who is ten shot the NEF 20ga and after three shots with trap load said it kicks to much so he will probally be shootinga youth 870

Mossberg 500 youth combo in 20gauge comes with the vent rib barrel and the rifled sabot barrel for around $230 one gun for upland, grouse, waterfowl and deer. A single shot is cheaper but will she want something different for next year?

I chose the Remington SPR 100 for my son to hunt with when he was 9 and 10. I bought it a couple years ago from Gander for around $100. I wanted him to get used to having 1 shot, a regular safety (no hammer)in a youth sized gun which fit him. This year at age 11 he is ready to move on to a full sized pump. Not sure if Gander still sells these or not. See HSOforum below.

Bought my kid an 870 20 ga. pump when he was 8 and hes done fine with every year. Hes 11 now and most likely will move him up to a full size 12 ga for next year. He can swat geese with the 20 ga at close range, but it just cant compare to a 12 with 3.5".

heres him at 8

Thanks for all the info. I have been to Gander in Blaine they didn't have much to choose from, Capras had a 500 Bantam in the low $200. Any other places I should try ... Cabelas?...?

Nice pics SledNeck!

Again thanks for all the info,

This will all be compiled for a weekend shopping trip.

    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
    • Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes
