      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've been looking for a different semiuto for duck, deer,and turkey hunting. I like my 1100 I shoot now but want something in camo. I found a good used 1187 Sportsman camo model, 3 1/2 chamber. Are they good reliable guns? What should I pay for a used one? Of course I'd like a new Versamax or SX3 but can't justify the cost.

I have one for a deer gun, and I like it. Never an issue with it, and I have bought it back when the 1187 first came out.

The only problem ive heard of with the 11-87 is that the O rings like to go out on them. Other than that theyre a great gun.

11-87 is a great gun, tried and true and that was the gun I wanted for my next waterfowl gun until I picked up the Browning Gold hunter all I can say It's was the best choice I ever made and at the time I spent less on the Browniing than I would have on the 11-87

My dad got one last fall. Had some jamming problems with it at first cuz he treated it like a pump, which is all he's ever owned, but after learning how to properly care for it, clean it and lube it, the gun cycles flawlessly.

I've had 4 or 5 of them and never had an issue. I'd buy a spare o-ring just in case but you'll more than likely never need it. It's just the easiest thing to pick apart on the 11-87. It's not the lightest gun out there but for waterfowling I don't see that as a negative.
