If you are an airgun, air rifle or air pistol enthusiast then you had probably lost hours of your life a browsing through the local freeads air rifle adverts.
But mid February this year things changed in a big way!
Things changed for Freeads Air Rifle sales when they introduce a change to their policy and a move away from the sale of hunting items.
Although this could be view as good news in the air gun world due to the high number of scammers on the site, a lot of air rifle and air pistol owners will be sorry to see Freeads closing the doors to the air gun community.
As with all things in life there will always be dishonest people, but we know many air gun owners that have managed to pick up a bargain air gun off freeads and met some great airgun owners too.
Hopefully this isn’t a permanently closed door to the airgun community. It does appear that the world of airguns and air rifles is moving closer towards a licensed route. Better to be a bump in the road than a nail in the coffin!
