How to do a search on this forum

Postby rotor » Tue Feb 23, 2016 10:57 am

Can not figure out how to search for the term "Remington R1". Is there some magic way to do this that I am missing? The R1 gets ignored.

One way I'm aware of is to use google, use the operator "site:" to specify a website to search on. for instance:

site:texaschlforum.com "Remington R1"

I think the minimum number of character for a search is three.
Search for "Remington 700" and you will get many hits.
I tried "Remington +R1" and didn't get any hits except for your post.
Also I think the search ignores common words such as "and" and "the".

Thanks for the responses. Does not look like there have been many Remington R1 posts.
