I'm looking for the many threads about Post Office carry. I've searched all open forums, any date, with the words post office (no quotes) in the search field. The returns I get cover every topic under the sun, and there are thousands.

So I change to "post office" (with quotes) and I get no returns.

Any advice to narrow the search better?

sometimes it is impossible to separate the post you want unless you remember a wierd word in the post

heres the official USPS policy:

I don't mean to take my own post off topic, but what that notice doesn't tell you is that the cited law also provides for legal possession for other lawful purposes, and the same law also lists self defense as a lawful purpose.

I'm just trying to find the exact citations, and I know they are somewhere in the omniscient (credit to pax) TFL server.

deanf - Unfortunately the vB search engine is not very sophiscated and doesn't support quoted entries or boolean connectors. It would try to find the words "post and office" somewhere in the messages for the example you tried.

Have you tried post office used in the subject only? I got about 5 hits for that combo and they looked promising.

I guess that didn't work either. ??

Actually I did find what I was looking for, with your advice.

FYI, here's the thread I was looking for: http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=29389
