      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 .

If you ever decide to change it up and purchase a rifled barrell for your SX2, good luck. I picked one up for mine a year ago and was told it was the only one left in stock anywhere and they weren't making anymore.

I agree with the Tru-Balls. Seen many people have good success with them in several different guns.

How about a rifled choke? Ive never seen or heard of em. where can a guy buy one, how much $, how well do they improve grouping, and can i still shoot the tru-ball slugs or sabots?

You want to just plop slugs into a gun and go hunt without having any idea where it will shoot them? If you can't shoot the gun before you go out, don't try to hunt with it. I personally think that's pretty unethical. Every gun shoots a little differently. You need to shoot your gun to know where it will hit with whatever type slug you want to shoot.

mnhunter79, Lawdog's point is and one I'd like to talk about further is even if your comparing the exact shotgun, choke and ammunition those two guns will not shoot the same.

So to take it out hunting without sighting in is a carp shoot.

Its also not an ethical thing to do.

You could always use the bow in the morning then find a pit or range and then sight in the shotgun. I know time is of the essence but if you can get it on paper at 25 yards then move out to 50 yards, well you'll know where its hitting anyway.

OK then, any other replies on how good / bad an sx2 w/28" barrel shoots slugs overall? Just tryin to get an idea for now. Plannin on gettin the B-SQUARE shotgun scope mount for it and puttin my nikon monarch on for next year. And yes, ill even sight it in.

Your groups with any smooth bore shotgun shooting a rifled slug isn't going to be that great. I'll say this, if your proficient with a bow you'll have better groups then the smooth bore could ever give. Effective range IMO is under 50 yards and less. Which is the best riffled slug? As said all barrels shoot differently. Once you get it on the range the proof will be in the pudding and you'll know the shotguns limitations. Experimenting with different slugs and picking one that groups best is all you can do.

Of coarse a riffled barrel will improve groups but the same answer to which slug will again be what shoots best out of that barrel.

Thats about as precise as an answer as anyone can give you.

    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?  
    •   If you think about this option I would try and look up some reviews. I would worry about it peeling or flaking off over time and having to keep re-coating it a lot. Bonding could be a big issue.
    • This isn't my patio but its very close to what I have. I think sandblasting would likely ruin the texture and pattern.  I'd also have to reapply a clear sealer after sandblasting and the sealer is what makes it slippery. 
    • This just occurred to me....  I have no idea if it would work..   Could it be sandblasted to roughen the surface and give more grip?         
    • I've seen a lot of options for things you can mix into the sealer before you roll it on.  I may start out going that route since I already have the sealer and the additives are cheap.  I've got a non visible area I can use as a test patch to see how it works.  I don't necessarily need it to be equal to a broomed concrete I'll settle for at least non-deadly.    Hopefully i can figure out something, my wife hates how slippery it is and is threatening to have it all torn out (the really expensive option).
