      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 .

gun help!

Recommended Posts

aight since i cant post in the hunting forum i am posting this year.
my grandpa gave me a gun a while ago and i was just wondering what the worth of it is. i will never sell it but it is just something that would be nice to know.

New England Firearms co
parnder single barrel shotgun

that is about all i know right now.
Is there anyway to figure out exactly what it is?
What price range is it in? never been used and it has only seen maybe 5 minutes of daylight out of the box.
i know nothing about guns that is why i am asking, probably never will.
any help would be much appreciated. thanks

Hey pig_sticka, I've got one of those too. It was the very first gun I ever bought and I still use it. I paid about $85 about 20 years ago, its a 12ga. I beleive they still sell them today.

it looks like a pretty sweet gun, 20 years ago at 85 dollars plus inflation smile.gif
i think he won it at a ducks unlimited get togther or something, or maybe that is just what i believe happened.

anyone know the value of it now or what it sells for?

These are still relatively inexpensive guns, but they are well made. I am not sure what retail is right now, but most sport shops have a gun blue book for reference. I have seen the blue books in public libraries also.

I have a NE Arms break open rifle in 22 Hornet that is a real hoot to shoot.

Pig_sticka,
Yeah, hate to say it, but they are pretty common. I used to work in a pawn-shop, and we'd sell them for as little as $50.00 and only loan $25.00 on even a nice one, like what you say you have. Hang on to it, though. Could be fun for solo-skeet or trap.

ill probably never use it because it was from my grandpa. if i do go hunting sometime i might use it though. but it is too personal to do much else with it. i didn't think it would be a ton but i figured worth alittle bit. i know he has gun cases just full of really sweet guns.

thanks for the feedback i knew i could rely on everyone here. might hang it on my wall for show. never owned any bullets for it.

    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.

    • He'll still go to Sly-Vee and buy it.
