      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 .

Springfield 20 gauge pump

Recommended Posts

I have a question about this gun, since I don't know anything about guns. My buddy wants to sell me this gun that is about 10 years old and I've never heard of it before and I don't know what it looks like either? Is this something that my kids could use? Any help would be appreciated.

I have a 4-10 springfield pump nice gun, I don't use it a whole lot though. Springfield aren't that great of a gun. But should work for a kid (starter shotgun), I wouldn't pay to much.

Wouldn't pay more than $50.00. Depends how good of a shot he is. If he shoots like his old man, he'll need a better gun to hit anything.

I had one, alot of years ago, my first pump gun. It shoots and handles like the Remingtons I have now. Wish I still had it, but I sold it back to the guy who sold it to me so his son could grow up shooting it. It may not be worth a ton of money but my experience with that gun was worth a mint to me. I don't know if the gun itself is only 10 years old, I don't know when Springfield went out of business. Good luck, take it for a test spin at the local trap range, see how it fits and how well you shoot it. Tim

this is the first gun that I shot and now I've handed it down to my 12yrold son and he loves it and might I add he shoots it better than I ever did. he has shot pheasants,ducks,geese and next spring hopefully he can take a turkey with it.

its probally worth 50-100 dollars depending on the shape of it

great gun and is still easy to find parts for if needed

If its the Model 67 then it has to be older than ten years, I believe. I have one that was made under contract for Coast to Coast as the Model 670. I cut the barrel down to 24 inches and mounted a 2 power scope for a kid's slug gun. The first shot fired in anger took a nice doe. The only problem is that when ejecting empties, you have to do it with gusto or the empty hangs up. They're good solid servicable guns that will take a lot of use.

I don't think any firearm that is not a single shot, in good working condition, should sell for less than $100. When was the last time anyone saw any pump for under $100. If its between friends, there might be an exception.

    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
    • Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes
