HI MJDallas,
Yes I did. Here is how:
1. Open Group Policy Management Console

There are many ways to do this so use your favorite way.
2. Create a new Policy

Create a group policy in in the Organizational Unit where your computers are stored.
3. Browse to the relevent section

So this is what you all are waiting for:
Computer Configuration>Policies>Administrative Templates>Printers> Add Printer wizard - Network Scan Page (managed network)
This GP setting allows you to determine how many of the following printer types show up.
Number of Directory Printers
Number of TCP/IP Printers
Number of Web Services Printers
Number of Bluetooth Printers
Number of shared Printers
4. Other things to look at since you are here anyways

Some other settings that may be of interest to you as well are
Point and Print Restrictions (allows you to allow your users to add printers from set print servers without having a UAC prompt)
Printer Browsing (I am not sure if you need to configure this but I did just in case)
