The most important issue here is the obvious mission of the google monster to mold our reality and shape the narrative. They are not alone in the conspiracy but they are the most pervasive and are synonymous with information now

Page rank algorithms are determining our destiny

Guys, the fellows still getting search results are not in the US. The Googleplex tentacles may have not spread that far.

Yet.

A regular search for ammo brings up all the ammo "shopping" you could want (I tried it just to check).
Still, I'm tired of Google's meddling with what they think that people should be exposed to, so I've gone to using Bing or Dogpile instead. Haven't used Google for anything for weeks. I vote with my fingers.
I';ve had no issues with google finding an ything I've looked or shopped for...til I do I'll continue to use it.

So is that true? No joy for the searchers in the US? I would expect things should the be OTHER way around.

Own a Scout or a Deagle here? You're in for some serious "government intervention."
Gun ownership isn't even remotely possible (legally) in Indonesia or Korea, and yet we still get results?

Weird huh? For about 2,000.00 US you can own a Scout. I don't have that kind of cash laying around, so for now I'll just have to dream about it.

But yes... type in Steyr Scout via the US Google Shopping link and you'll get nothing.

Of course, I can go to www.gunbroker.com and find as many as I want. Or even use Bing Shopping and find tons of vendors willing to sell me a Scout. Google however has decided I don't need one.

Don't get me wrong. In no way am I saying Google doesn't have the right to do this. I'm just saying that this is one of many reasons why I've been boycotting Google for several years now.
