      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 .

Good, inexpensive scope

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a good, inexpensive scope to put on my .22. I'd like a fixed power scope that is durable and will last.
Any suggestion?

I like Leupold myself great scope but for a .22 it is probably a little more than you want since the scope probably would cost as much as the gun. Plus I don't know that they make a fixed power. You can get a Nikon Buckmaster 4X for $159 and they are a good scope. Really for a .22 you can probably go with the cheapest scope you can find and you would be ok. I have a tasco on mine and it is ok it obviously isn't a Leupold or a Nikon but it is a .22. Tasco actually make a couple scopes specifically for a .22 and they are only 40-60 bucks. I almost forgot a Swift is a very good scope to and I see they have a 4X for about $100. Swifts are actually really good for the money. They don't gather as much light as a Leupold but they are better than a tasco.

Simmons (believe it or not) makes a fairly nice, reasonably priced (50 bucks or so) 22 scope that seems to hold up pretty well in my opinion.. it's called the 22 mag and is worth checking out in my opinion... I believe it's a straight 4 x 32 scope.. they also make a variable version which I have no experience with...

I have a Bushnell Sportview 3-7 on mine and I like it. Pretty cheap, I think it was around 40 or 50 bucks. The first scope I had on it was a Simmons 4x and it was a piece of ****. I don't think it's the same one that the other guy just posted on, as it was more like 25 bucks than 50, but it was garbage. The reticles started spinning after about 10 shots.

I didn't mean for that to be a link and it doesn't work. You'll have to do a search or just type it in.

Sorry

Well there you go Scoot. I am pretty sure that we mentioned just about every brand of scope out there. Probably the best think to do since I see you live in Fargo is go to Scheel and see what they recomend and then look through them all. They have a stand the you can put 4 scopes into and then just go down the line and see what they look like. If it we me I would really take a good look at the Swifts that I mentioned. For the price they are a really good scope. If I were you I would avoid Bushnell and Weaver just because of some of the experience I have had with them. I have never had a simmons so I can say on them. Cabela's brands also might be worth looking at I have never had one but I have heard lots of talk on them. Well there I think we have covered them all.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
