      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 .

I am thinking about purchasing a semi-automatic shotgun and this one is in my price range and seems to be a quality gun since it shares the same inertia system as benelli. Does anyone have any honest reviews for me on this gun?

I have had mine about 7 years and its only failed me once and the ejector pin (the piece that ejects shells) fell out, took it to scheels and they put one in out of a gun off the shelf and i was on my way again when i got home i put locktight in the screw for that pin and never had a problem... it cycles the lightest target loads up too 3" 1 5/8oz upland loads i used it for waterfowl in slews and geese in fields as well as upland and sporting clays! this things works alot better than most gas-auto guns when it comes to being very wet and very cold.

I have had mine for three years and no problems except the safety was extremely stiff when i got it but i should have checked that before i brought it home. I can only recall 2 or 3 times when it didn't cycle properly but overall i have been pleased with the gun.

If i remember right stoger recomendes a the first box of shells no lighter than 1 3/8oz to kinda loosen the inertia spring. it may have a hard time with lighter loads out of the box

Mine has worked flawlessly for both turkeys and watefowl. If fact I purposely didn't clean it other than wiping it down to see how long it could go before it malfunctioned.

I made it through two turkey hunts, pheasant hunting and almost a full waterfowl season before it jammed.

Mine works just fine in cold weather.

You might call it a real bargain - same internal action as a Benelli - inertia operated - at less than half the cost. This gun is the real deal.

the Hi Vis sight on it is awsome really draws a faster target aquisition and is awsome in low light periods I pretty much run Hi-vis on all my shiotguns and this is just as good as those

I love mine. Bought it new 2 years ago in Max-4. Have never had a single problem with it. I've shot a mixture of shell lengths, powder loads, and shot size. I've hunted early season and broke ice in November. So far, no problems. I do like the red sight as well.

i've had my stoeger 2000 for a couple years now and havn't had a problem with the gun. Nice and light. I use carlson chokes and the DrakeKiller choke in the gun. The factory chokes are alright but they did have a problem before with them. The chokes would expand in the barrel and get stuck. Buy it up you wont be let down!

I personally don't shoot one so I can't tell you first hand how they shoot but I have worked firearms retail for many years and anything made by Stoeger was the number 1 gun brought back to the gunsmith. Seemed like many problems with triggers and firing pins. And they are not made by Benelli, they just have the same parent company. Maybe also look at a Franchi. Again, same parent company as Stoeger and Benelli but in my opinion a better gun. My .02 cents.

3.5" shells are over-rated. Let 'em swing if you need to - all I shoot are 2 3/4" and I do fine - just discipline yourself and you'll be ok. 3" & 3.5" don't shoot any further, they just put more steel in the air - no kidding. The center of your pattern will be the same with 2.75", 3" or 3.5" shells - learn to shoot and save yourself some $$$!

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
