    I don't see a problem. I'd much rather buy gun shit from gun people than Google, Amazon, etc.

    Its not google selling it, googles search function to search for sites that sell the firearm product you are looking for now does not list anything firearms related...

    That's not true.

    Using google search brings up everything. Using google shopping only brings up airsoft.

    Give it a shot.

    I use google shopping all the time to compare prices mostly and to get a general idea of what things are going for. The guns doesn't bother me too much but the ammo.. :cry:

    Sorry I meant to say Google shopping .. MY comment was more addressing that its NOT Google selling things in Google shopping , just listing places that sell the item you are looking for .. Your comment implied that its Google who was selling the products and that you would rather not buy from them ...

    Indeed ...

    But whether they do or don't does not change the fact that you are still buying it from a gun dealer ...

    Much of my Job at the Firearms distributor I work for is Web advertizing , and a big part of that was finding ways to increase our search ability on Google ...

    But yeah Google can suck it ... :thumbsup:

    Anyone know of a sporting-dedicated search engine? I doubt anyone beats Google for general search, but something specific for when I'm looking for sporting goods? I never really bothered using google shopping anyway, it's always seemed to kind of suck compared to just GOING to Ebay, Amazon, Midway, etc, but it was occasionally handy for a price-compare.

    Both of those links say no results found when I click on them. Also, one wouldn't simply search for "shotguns" when getting prices..? I don't know. No big deal really just a big inconvenience if you ask me. Google done goofed.

    It's not working for me either.

    I don't see it on a restriction on our freedoms only because Google
    is doing it on their own accord. It's not as if the government came
    in and told them they had to censor the search results in shopping.

    I don't agree with the decision either, but we are free to use whatever
    search engine we want. I'd still use google services. I may not like
    this one decision, however, I don't think any of us can deny the amount
    of free and very useful tools they've provided.
