      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 .

Scopes?

Recommended Posts

I found out my slugs are shooting about 4" low at 50 yards on my 870 smooth bore barrel.
I have a Simmons 4X shotgun scope and the person who adjusted the scope last year is not around to adjust it for me. The windage was perfect with all shots, but it shot 4" low.
How do you adjust the scope to make it aim correctly?

The vertical adjustment on the top of the scope should be labeled with a scale of 1/8s. Every notch you turn it will adjust your shot 1/8" at 100 yards. So you going to have to go out and play with it a little.

Fin,

Your Simmons is a 1/4 adjustment at 100 yards. Just unscrew the side scope cap and turn it the direction it needs to go. To save time you can goto most places and have it bore sighted which will save you time and ammo. Some places charge and others don't. Find a place that does not change becuase boresighting only takes about 10 secs. Also if you would like it to shoot at 50 yards tell them and anyone who knows ballistics can bore sight for you given that range.

Good Luck smile.gif

If your not going to get a chance to sight it in before you go I'd just aim high like MNice mentioned. Being 4" low at 50 yards mean going 32 clicks up to bring to center. When doing this many clicks things can move differently than you'd think. One more note. After every 8 clicks or so tap on the adjuster dial lightly. This will help seat the mechanical parts to the adjusted position.

Good Luck!
