      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 .

Anybody know of a range in the cities where I can shoot a muzzy? I'm not a member of any clubs, but would like to shoot sooner than the OTP sight in period most of those offer. Trying to work up a good powder and bullet combo well prior to the fall.

I know I've seen guys shooting muzzy's at Oakdale Gun Club but I'm not aware of any public hours during the winter.  They do have some public hours in the summer and then expanded hours leading up to the deer season.

They run a very tight firing line, tho. You won't be able to clean your gun when the line is down, which makes sustained shooting a slow process.

That is true, they generally do run a very tight line.  Although I was there a few years ago with a new rifle that I was breaking in and was running some patches through it and they let me do that on the bench while the line was down.  Of course it was a bolt action rifle and its pretty easy to verify its safe when the bolt is laying on the table next to me. 


Personally I appreciate them running things like they do. I'd rather have them run a tight line and have the process take more time than them getting lose with the rules.  You never know who else is on the line and what their bad habits might be. 


If anyone is concerned with down time I've had good luck getting there very early on a weekday during public hours or even early on a Sunday.  I've had the entire 100 yard range to myself once or twice when shooting early and never had more than a handful of guys on the entire range most mornings.  If you get lucky and have it to yourself no need to worry about down time.
