onClick - open in same screen instead of new window

I have the following code:

<input name="Submit" onclick="ob=this.form.selectPistols;window.open(ob.options[ob.selectedIndex].value)" type="submit" class="style2" value="Search">

Which works - but opens in a new window. What's the syntax to navigate using the same browser window?

Thanks,
<form name="form2" method="post" action="">
          <select name="selectPistols" class="style2" id="selectPistols">
<%
While (NOT rsMansPistols.EOF)
%>
<option value="Results1.asp?Manufacturer=<%=(rsMansPistols.Fields.Item("ManufacturerID").Value)%>&Category=%&Keyword=&Submit=Search">
<%=(rsMansPistols.Fields.Item("Manufacturer").Value)%></option>
<%
  rsMansPistols.MoveNext()
Wend
If (rsMansPistols.CursorType > 0) Then
  rsMansPistols.MoveFirst
Else
  rsMansPistols.Requery
End If
%>
</select>
<input name="Submit" onclick="ob=this.form.selectPistols;window.open(ob.options[ob.selectedIndex].value)" type="submit" class="style2" value="Search">
</form>

Open in new window

Change your submit button to type=button;
change window.open to location.href=

<input name="Submit"
onclick="ob=this.form.selectPistols;location.href=ob.value;"
type="button" class="style2" value="Search">

Sorry, the <base target="_self" /> did not work and the <a href> solution I'm not sure how to use with a form button.

Trying the others - I think spoxox's might look promising. brb
