      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!!!

Mounting a rifle scope

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there have the pin set-up and remers to properly mount a scope on a rifle? Or, do most just simply screw on the mounts and tighten them up and hope it's lined up properly. I purchased a new Weatherby Vanguard SS Sub-MOA in the .300 WSM and need to mount a scope on it. I've seen that there is usually very limited contact between the actual scope and the rings if not done properly and the scope can move a little with repeated firing. Maybe I need to just bend over, shell out some more cash, and bring it into a gunsmith???

I use the blue,medium locktite product on ALL mounting

hardware during the install process. This includes

some on each ring half where it meets the scope tube.

This is easily done by first marking the eye relief

with tape on the tube body next to the ring, then taking

the scope back off to put the locktite on the rings.

Another tip is to gently tap (wooden/nylon mallet)

the screws in during the last stage of tightening down

ALL screws. A good gun-screwdiver set is needed.

Don't forget a couple drops of blue between the base

and receiver as well.

I'm lazy I take mine to a gunsmith, I tried years ago to do it and tightened it down and broke the scope more or less, so now I pay the $20 to have it done right....good luck
