View Full Version : 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.

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.

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.:p

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... :D

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.
