    Ok so Im cruising the classifieds, I want a Glock 26. Sure I could look page over page of adds or I could type Glock 26 in search. I'll so the latter, well 26 is under the "3 letter" count of search parameters. How in the heck are we to look for a specific model weapon, when you cant search for numbers under 3 digits?

    Dear Roro,

    Try Glock26 compressed like that and you'll get hits. Stay safe, Gary

    Use "G26 or"M26"(without quotes) in the search.
    G26 FS

    Hope this helps... :cool:

    Sorry about that, but indexing messages so they are searchable by 2 digit 'words' is too much overhead for the server. Doing this increases the server load when indexing a message, or when someone runs a search, by a factor of about 10.

    Anyway, people will almost always list a Glock 26 as a G26, or G-26, or M-26. Eric
