    Ok if this has been on here in the past then let me know and i will remove it.

    It looks like Google and Ebay are about the same to deal with now.

    Ok im going to start and use ixquick now for a search engine link above.

    Ok here is the Google report below

    This effects Google Shopping, not Google Search.

    It sucks. I use google shopping when comparison shopping for gun accessories. No so much for ammo b/c its rare that I can meet or beat local prices, but for recoil pads, gun parts, ect. Fortunately, it appears in my limited experience that Bing Shopping works just as well or slightly better.

    Google shopping was fraught with inaccuracies anyways, most times if you found an item that was significantly lower in price than anything else, the link was for the wrong item, and stuff listed as "free shipping" rarely was.

    Barring that, I guess I'll just go back to my old practice of doing a search for what I want, opening up the first few pages of results, and comparing that way.

    Thanks! Ian

    Ok haven't been on here in awhile so as I said if what I posted has been on here in the past then let me know so I can delete it I know how it was in the past also when i was on here all the time and someone new would post a repeat over and over.

    Foggy!

    Foggy- My response was more directed at Calkidd (who's since deleted his post) than you.

    To my knowledge, its the first time this has been posted here.

    I have never used google shopping(didn't know it existed until now). I use google search for gun stuff all the time with no problems. If I am looking for accessiries, I have found Amazon to have a s******d of stuff,I buy there often. I just hope someone doesn't post and tell me Sarah Brady is the CEO.

    I doubt they'll ban porn, so I'm good.

    Auctioneer- Did you go to Google Shopping to do those searches, or just the main search page?
