      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 .

registering a firearm

Recommended Posts

the last time I saw a shotgun at a wedding was carried by my uncle behind the groom. The only thing that was registered was the wedding certificate. But, I'm sure he didn't give the scatter gun to the newly found son-in-law.

Now thats funny right there, I don't care who ya are. SB I love the sig. and avitar. That would be a good xmas card logo for the "PEOPLE EATING TASTY ANIMALS" Group. and the wedding gun, you don't have to do anything. Only when you buy from a dealer or auction sometime too I think. Private Party's No.

I was reading this week's edition of Minnesota Outdoor News, and in it was a story about a bill that some politicians wrote up. The bill would make everyone with a gun register the gun, along with providing finger prints, a picture, medical and mental health records. The story went on to say that the bill should not make it far though.

If something like this were to ever pass,it would be the responsible hunters and gun owners who would register their guns. What incentive would there be for the criminals committing the violent crimes to go out and register their guns, along with providing all of their personal information.

To say the least, this story really made my blood boil.

As Charelton said "FROM OUR COLD DEAD HANDS" I guess if the only choice is to fight fire with fire we better start takeing this less for granted and get the message out there to our politions that we won't keep them in office unless they keep this America,the way we sportsmen like it. we allot of us choose not to get involved because we think it wont happen, but it can if we go fishing and stuff and forget about it. The only way is proactive and voteing for some people that are on the publics side. If there is not a good canidate wich there seems to be so offten then we need to start comeing up with some.The other side seems to have no trouble pulling these wacko's out of the woods somewhere.

Handguns is a good idea to register.. all others.. not an issue

Check your homeowners policy to make sure the guns you own don't go over the limit in the policy. Write down the info on the guns such as make, model, caliber and serial number. If you have any value info record that as well. Put that info with your household inventory and keep that someplace that would survive if there was a fire or a theft.

You don't need to register most guns beyond the requirements that are in place when you buy one. Machine guns may be an exception but there aren't many floating around.

Legally... But it is gut wrenching to know the actual amount of illegal Machine guns "floating" around.. sick

Tom, your advise about home owner insurance is sage. However, most policies cover that sort of stuff up to a certain amount. Mine only covered guns up to 200.00. That's why I have a "rider" for full value of all my guns, Hummels, coins, jewerly, etc. Better check and see just what possesions are actaully covered for thier full value.

We have full gun registration in Canada--everything including air guns have to be registered. Compliance with this law is less than the Gov't had hoped and it was and is extremely expensive. There are various bills in the legislature to do away with the long gun registry but none have passed thru parliment as yet. It's a real PITA.

I had a house fire several years ago and getting them replaced was the easiest part of the whole deal. The gov't had a record of every make and model on file and I just bought replacements--the only thing the Insurance company didn't kick about.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
