A comment about the "search" feature.

I've had some problems with my Remington 11-87 not cycling. Instead of posting my questions I used the search feature to see if the question had been posted before. Duh. Not only had the question been posted, but answered in detail several times. I mention this for newbies. The seach engine works wonders.
Thanks

I use a search engine like Bing or Google instead of the site feature. It's easier and I get better results. Most search engines will let you specify a site to search.

Example:
Remington 11-87 not cycling site:thefiringline.com

search engine

Thanks for the post, I never thought to use the search engine that way(duh). Dope slap to the back of the head applied. Thanks again.

Yeah, the search engine pretty much eliminates any reason for the forum, doesn't it?

Not really; just when you think you've seen it all, someone will come up with something new...

But it is true that the search function can answer a lot of questions. Actually, if you get right down to it, if everyone were to read all their owner's manuals really carefully, online forums would be a lot less busy.
