      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 .

Remington product safety notice

Recommended Posts

was waiting for an appointment this monring and there sat the Jan 2010 edition of Guns & Ammo. I ran across a notice that read "Do not use Remington 17 HMR ammo in semi auto firearms. Do not use the Remington Model 597 HMR semi auto rifle". Call 1-800-243-9700, prompt #3. Just thought I'd let people know.

Wow, just looked it up on the webpage at Remington.

They are telling folks with the model 592 chambered

for 17HMR to return it for a lousy 200-250 bucks.

My brother in law got a real beauty with a laminate

stock, and added a couple clips and a nice scope.

It was just under 600 bucks!!! He is really ticked....

THey should have had this figured out BEFORE you and

I are risking our skins at the range and field don't

ya think??? I will pass this along over to the varmit

folks too.....

Just to make sure I re-read the article and it does say the 597. However, I donm't know if there is a 592. I did talk to one "smith" who flippantly related that Remington can't seem to keep thier steel from blowin up....or words to that affect. This is not a quote. Remington has fallen from my grace years ago.

What I don't get, is Remington's lack of a

"we will make this right" to all those folks

that put the money down and bought this rifle??

The 10 dollar a box of shells credit and the 200

to 250 dollar rifle credit is a slap in the face.

Where can I buy some 17HMR for ten bucks, much less

a model 592 for 250 or less.

As I said before, we have one in my safe that my

in-law bought. My guess is that it is going to go

into a class action, before it leaves to go back to

the Remington shop!!

I use to think that Remington was one of the better

manafacturers around. I have an older 700 and a XP100

that shoot sub MOA easily, and I have had zero problems.

Lucky for me I guess, considering how well they stand

behind the stuff they make. I am now on a boycott of

further Remington purchases,seeing how they deal the

average Joe a bad hand nowdays.

Even though the number of owners will pale in comparison to other Remington owners, this could have devastating effects on future business. Knowing this now, I for one will not take a chance on this type fleecing.

    • Takes a shot of cure to get that ring, if you don't have a source of carbon monoxide to mess with the enzymes////
    • I like the galvanized tin!
    • Looks awesome, great smoke ring. Was it a little more tender this go around?
    • You sir, did a great job! Enjoy your house... 
    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?

    • You don't get a smoke ring like that with liquid smoke either 
    • Yup, the bike sold and they guy seems pretty happy with the purchase. The only reason it was parked we think because it had a bent back rim. He had torn it all apart and put it back together and currently has it running. 
    • Camper is winterized for the season. 
    • As far as an app to keep him from getting lost, you could try the Polaris Ride Command app. It is a really good trail map and I believe you can download the maps for the areas you ride in so it will still work even if you don't have cell signal. https://ridecommand.polaris.com/en-us/landing-pages/AppLandingPage
    • I don't know much about it but maybe satellite tracking might be an option?  http://www.cabelas.com/product/SPOT-LLC-SPOT-GEN-ORANGE/1661065.uts?productVariantId=3609002&WT.tsrc=PPC&WT.mc_id=GoogleProductAds&WT.z_mc_id1=03750221&rid=20&lsft=ref:212,loc:1&gclid=CjwKCAjw4KvPBRBeEiwAIqCB-U1B1VDAZZB5771da4q6PQrP_nm5K5-fi29AOxs0i6bnAO3O3wWVWxoC6R4QAvD_BwE I would think you would be out of range quickly on an ATV in the Chippewa National Forest.
