    Sorry to hear , I often browsed on there and have met some good people but I also know of some who wait or catch others who fall on hard times and sell on for big profit.

    No looks like it's a change to their policy, nothing "weapon" related allowed, even genuine antiques.

    Point 9, so as long as it's not offensive then you can crack on.

    Shame, I found a couple of decent air rifles on there recently.
    It was ok for dealing with shops or face to face.

    Will probably mean the BBS sales section will be very busy, it also won't be to bad for the RFDs with their sales I'd imagine.

    If I had known it was going to stop selling air rifles, I would if put a few bids in for ones that I know were non air rifle folk... it's going to be harder for them selling now ffs
    Life looks better through a scope!
