Well I use to type in what I was looking for, let's say "Star Pistols" and I'd get a listing of Star pistols. Now you get several pages of listings, not just ones with Star in the title but a bunch of various guns. It seems to me that the computer gurus that operate these web site have decided we need to look at whatever, rather than what we want. GunBroker doesn't even have Star listed as a manufacturer.
With the more common guns I just go to category / manufacturer / caliber / etc., except if I'm looking for a specific item, then I will type that in and get all kinds of listings because the search picks out the common denominator.
