    "Free rifle combo" Paypal acct now active

    Some of you may already be aware of the thread that Dave (Kingplinker...me) and i have been running about trying to get the BBS members to donate unwanted bits of kit, the donated items are then used or sold and the money put towards buying a combo(AAs200 & scope). The first combo was donated to Springfield ARC at the HFT shoot at Shepreth(many thanks to all who donated) , and the following 3 combo's went to young shooters who(along with their dads) are now starting to attend the UKAHFT shoots...so result

    As a result of tons of feedback from the lads on here, we decided to set up a Paypal account with the email addy combo@airgunbbsmail.co.uk
    The idea being that there are approx 9000 members on here, if each popped 1 pound into the paypal account.....well work it out, and i'm sure most people wouldn't miss a quid. The funds from the account will be used to purchase kit from JSR, so its a win for a Young newbie, this sites host and a nice warm feeling for all the BBS members. ...and again, we will try to hand over a combo at the next UKAHFT shoot.

    Any people out there that don't have access to paypal, but would like to help then please drop me a PM

    The account will be monitored by myself & Dave, I'm sure you all know by now that this is genuine.

    Chris & Dave.

    I have started the ball rolling mate. Well done, and I hope this accomplishes what you want.

    All the very best.

    Many thanks....

    We're not going to mention names or post a list of people who donated because if people want anonymity , then no probs

    I have noticed that one or two chaps have put in a little bit more than the suggested 1 pound..you know who you are

    We really should make more of an effort to get the BBS members together for a shoot/social meet....there's so many guys on here that i'd like shake by the hand........ooooh, stop, no i'm not crying, i've got something in my eye

    Just be sure to put "free combo" or similar in the "subject" box - NOT any references to Airguns, or they'll likely freeze the account due to draconian policies

    Don't know if it's a coincidence, but after sending my donation I received my first spoof PayPal e-mail for a long while.

    Just be careful Guys, never follow links in e-mails that pretend to come from PayPal or the auction site that must not be mentioned.

    Be safe...
