    The search tool is a little funky, first and foremost, if you use the "standard" search bar on any given page, there is a character requirement, anything under....4? characters is not going to return anything.

    If you click on advanced search, you need to click on the "Search Single Content Type" tab and then input your information. The same character count is required.

    Rebuilding the search indexes to go to a 3 letter minimum is apparently a huge task...

    The search features in this version of Vbulletin are horrendous, but it's what we've got until it's fixed by VBulletin.

    What I've found to actually work better in some cases is to just use Google and use "defensivecarry.com" as sort of a prefix to the search keywords.

    If you use the "site:" in your google search it will only return hits for this site

    site:defensivecarry.com pf9

    site:defensivecarry.com kel tec pf9

    site:defensivecarry.com m&p

    site:defensivecarry.com sig
