      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.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
