I realize I'm no computer expert and fully expect a smart ass response...which is fine, hell , I'm usually the biggest asshole in the room, but I am having trouble using the search function. Example: If I type in " magazine" I get no hits. Or "wood stocks" I get the no hits screen...any suggestions ? Thanks in advance...Nate

The search 'function' sucks on this board. If you know how to make it work, it can be acceptable. But really, the best (simplest, most efficient) way is to just use google with the search tag

<< site:falfiles.com >>

As a bonus, this tag helps you search efficiently on other websites too.

As an example, if you want to do a search for magazines on the Files, you go to google and type:

magazine site:falfiles.com

in the search bar, and it will bring up your results.

Not hard to use this search function.

Ever tried searching for G1 or R1 or SA ?

You'll find our search function has its limitations.
