      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 .

Shotgun Registration

Recommended Posts

I don't normally post twice, but it looks like there are more shotgun users here than on the general hunting forum.

I am about to purchase a used shotgun from a friend of mine. I know you don't have to register a shotgun or have a permit or license to use one for purposes of hunting in the state of MN, but I'd like to get the gun registered and put in my name. Does anyone know what I'll need from my friend, and what I'll need to do to get this done?

Thanks!

An FFL holder uses a 4473 form and needs to keep it on hand for 20 years, a backgroud check if done with the FBI for all transfers,and then you are only given a transaction number for the check, not the gun. There is not an entity to register any firearms with other than that, unless you report mulitple handgun sales in a 5 day peroid or need to report lost or stolen firearms, which is reported to local law enforcement and the ATF. If you do sell to a private party I would make a bill of sale, including serial number, and maybe a copy of the buyers ID to keep with it. It you feel uncomfortable at all with the sale, DON'T DO IT!! As an FFL holder, I use the same standard, if I'm not 100% comfortable, no sale.

SmilinBob,

I'm going to be buying the shotgun from a friend, not selling it to someone else. From the responses on the thread, it looks like I don't need to go anything but buy the gun.

One thing to note. happened to one of my friends bought a gun at a resonable cost from a friend. only to later get checked by the dnr and find out the gun was stolen. i guess when the dnr checked them they ran the numbers off of the gun and siezed it. same friend this year needed a new gun to say the least and his girl friend bought him a new benelli nova camoflauge. went down to mankato to go hunting. stopped at a friends house to pick him up. went inside for no more then ten minutes and someone punched out his truck window and took gun and shells. nothing but bad luck for him this year

I have purchased many used guns and have never transferred one. I have had my brother in law or a friend who works for the county police check out the serial number before I purchased it to make sure it was not a stolen gun though.

even with a receipt the guy wont get back his money if the gun is stolen and the dnr takes it. just have a any FFL or police officer to run the serial numbers. very quick to do and usually free of charge.

    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
