I know this is cheeky, forgive me, but I thought I'd at least write with a small proposition: If you have, somewhere on a testing bench in your factory, a thoroughly used, scratched up, unsellable pre-charged pneumatic rifle, that was just getting in the way, then - if you were so hugely generous as to throw it my way - then I'd stick a dirty great banner ad at the top of my blog saying BUY BSA! and I'd write about the (undoubted) marvels of the gun to the exclusion of all others for ever more. What do you think?
As soon as I hit 'send' I thought, 'Oh God, what a fool I am! Is there any end to my stupidity? What in god's name makes me think that BSA will throw several hundred quids worth of rifle at me in return for a banner on a blog which gets forty visits a day?
I am profoundly grateful for the fact that whoever received this at BSA had the outstanding good sense to delete it at once and not bother to reply.
Thank you, BSA!
