I meant solely in the gun rights context we were discussing, as has been discussed (by you on occasion, NSR) at length previously.

It's a tough time to be selling Sex Pistols merchandise.

Google "ALL" works fine for me.
Using the "shopping" mode is the problem. I never use that search parameter for anything. It generally links me to merchants not related to what I'm looking for, not interested in or the closest one who's paid enough money to be listed near or at the top.

Outside of the present topic, Google Shopping can be an excellent tool if you are trying to get the best price on a specific item.

I have used it to compare prices and several times and have used it to locate merchants selling the exact item I was looking for at about half the price. Recently it was a $100 pair of shoes that was $100 everywhere else except one merchant who had them in their "clearance" section for $42.98, free 2 day shipping. That merchant did not come up in the first few pages of the regular Google search and I would never have known of the deal otherwise.

It does not give you a full picture of EVERY merchant, but if you include it as part of your quest, it can yield good results.

Well, I've actually learned something new again from another post on the FDP. The "Shopping" tab is something I've never ever used. The "Maps" and "Images" tabs are sometimes used by me, but not the "Shopping".

Seems, per some of the prior posts, that the "Shopping" tab might be a handy tool to use for looking for bargains...just not for gun related items.

Why are y'all using google shopping anyway? They're not an FDP sponsor. (Just scrolled up to the top to make sure they have not been added.)

Not like Amazon.

I like to support the FDP, but I still make sure I'm getting the best price. I almost always use Google Shopping to compare the price of an item to that on Amazon; the vast majority of the time, Amazon wins and the FDP link is used.

Amazon doesn't have 90% of what I want, and I don't use it enough to shell out for Prime, so....

That and I think I get a pass for giving at the office!

You have to be among an extreme minority of people.

I am, and well, I also have the income of an extreme minority of people.

And the expenses of same because housebound weirdos only buy noisemaking devices and food.

And for musical stuff, I go where the line of credits give me 0% for a period of time the vast majority of the time.

Amazon, well, isn't one!

"housebound weirdos" is a better than average band name.
