      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

What is it?

I googled it and got some results...  just put in LA's DEPUTY

you have a 22 revolver made in germany by erma, imported by l.a. distributers in new york. I have one also, purchased new. Look on the left side of the frame below the cylinder. There should be 3 symbols. the last symbol is a shield with a two digit number in it. That is the year it was made.

Another place had this...

The "LA Deputy" is a Colt Scout knockoff made in the 60's by Herbert Schmidt Co. of Germany. These Colt Scout knockoffs were commonly known as "Buffalo Scouts". They were cheaply built on an alloy frame, but many have lasted, and they are fun, inexpensive plinkers. They are worth $150 or less however. Perhaps $75 or so even. In the 60's they retailed at $29.99 or $39.99

 There were a bunch more .  This looked useful

The Herbert Schmidt Frontier Model or Texas Scout was imported by a variety of sellers of inexpensive firearms (Firearms Import and Export Corporation {F.I. E.}, EIG, Excam, Spesco, PIC, Valor, Liberty Arms Company, etc.) under the trade names Deputy Marshal, EIG, E8, PIC, Geroco, Madison, Bison, Omega, RG, AMCO, Spesco, Valor, Liberty, LA's Deputy, Liberty Scout, Deputy Magnum, Deputy Adjuster, NATO, Western, Burgo Mod 21, Gecado Model 21 , Indian Scout, VOL, Eusta, Cheyenne Scout, Texas Scout, Buffalo Scout and probably others.

F.I.E. imported the Texas Scout as the Buffalo Scout and Model E-15. See this link for parts schematic of the E-15: Revolvers-36171/E15-38043.htm

All Schmidt revolvers will have "Made in Germany" marked on the outside of the revolver and I believe that the initials "H.S." or the name "H. Schmidt" is stamped or molded on the grip frame under the grip panels.

I hope this was of use.

Those are fun old plinkers. Lots of those floating around from the 70's. Funny that came up; ran into a guy at the range yesterday with an old 70's Ruger .22  Single Six model. Wish I had kept mine!
