    Hi Everyone,

    While the forum is easy to search it's not that easy to search for pictures, all in one place.

    Google Image comes to the rescue here.

    Open up Google, and type:

    site:xsimulator.net/community

    Followed by the search query. You can use the "+" symbol to looks for all your words (search a phrase)

    I searched for: best+angle+for+a+shoulder+mount
    (so full text is: site:xsimulator.net/community best+angle+for+a+shoulder+mount)

    Let Google do it' search and then click on Image in the Google search results.

    You can see the results here:
    example1 copy.jpg

    Then click a picture that looks like it's what you need:
    example2 copy.jpg

    Then click the "Visit Page" button to go to the post that talks about shoulder mount angles:

    example3 copy.jpg

    I use it all the time and figured I'd share just in case anyone is struggling like I was at first.

    Cheers,

    Archie.
