      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 Length Shotgun to buy 26 or 28 inch

Recommended Posts

Well, it depends....

o/u or s/s = 28"

Auto loader or pump = 26"

But that is just me. Other people will have different opinions on this subject. With todays shot and choke tubes, barrel length becomes a matter of personal feel and ballance over balistic performance. Balisticly there is no difference between the two.

Same lenth barrel's on the two different types of gun will result in differnt lenth guns. An o/u with a 28" barrel will be almost 4" shorter in overall length of gun than an auto or pump with the same 28" barrel.

alittle FYI on scatter gun ballistics. 26 inches is the lenght of barrel needed for the powder to fully expand. Anything over 26 inches affords nothing more then a longer sighting plain....nothing more. A shorter 26 barrel offers a quicker swing. Try out a few different length barrels and see what fits you best.

If you can get your hands on a couple guns in those lengths, take em to the range and shoot some clays. Make your choice based on feel.

I agree with Will! The reason is that i had a 26 " barrel on a remington, but couldn't hit much with it! Tried a 28 " and was right on! Seems my eye sight just wasn't picking up the shorter barrel.
