    Moment of weakness

    Very nice, I have always liked the Omega Speedmaster. In my opinion Omega are a very underrated brand.

    Bushcraft clubs

    As the title, does anyone know of any clubs within the North West, where you meet, learn/practice, etc? Also, could you recommend any courses? I have been looking at Trueways Survival https://truewayssurvival.com/ any others?

    Wind up radio

    No - I had a look on Amazon, and thought I would ask for a recommendation - seemed a simple question. If anyone has purchased such a radio, would you recommend it? E. G. a number of the radio's include options, torches, USB charger, power bank, etc. is this a good ideal or adding complication, AM/FM or DAB?

    Which wind up radio would you recommend for hiking / camping?

    24 Hour Emergency Backpack

    Good video. We all have different opinions on what is necessary. This is what I keep in the boot of my car, probably time for an update. I was thinking of updating my hiking rucksack and keeping that in the boot.

    Agreed, sums up the "can do" mentality.

    Diggle Egg Shoot

    What a great day, shame only 26 shooters. Thank you to all those that organised, marked targets and worked in the butts. It doesn't matter (much), that I was well and truly outshot by my 14 year old son. For those that did not attend, you missed a fantastic day and the weather was good (even for Diggle). Hopefully see you at the Fly Shoot?

    I agree.

    .223 barrel cleaning

    I would ask the same question? I always clean all my firearms (rifle and shotgun) after use, irrespective of the rounds shot. Each to their own, I suppose.
  10. I too have an AI AT and I went for an S&B 12-50x56 PMII with P4F reticle, however, mine is SFP since I shoot at known distances. My only comment on the scope is that in some circumstances I do find the reticle a little too fine. The rifle is used for everything from McQueens to F-Class at distances from 100yrds-1000yrds.

    Tactical Marlin.

    Hobbit, yes even I find that has too much 'rail'. In fact I think that baldie's was better.

    Tactical Marlin.

    I always thought that this looked a fantastic rifle and I would like something similar done to mine eventually, however, others may find that a sacrilege to a traditional Marlin/underlever.

    AI AT Build

    I too have an AI AT in .308, folding stock with 26" barrel. The scope is an S&B PMII 12-50x56 SFP, reticle is a P4fine with 1/4 MOA turrets. I have an AI bipod, however I have a Phoenix bipod on my Ruger PR and I intend to order one for the AI, they are a fantastic bipod and highly recommended (I bought mine for the Ruger after seeing the one on "The Gun Pimp's" rifle whilst shooting McQueens). My only comments on the S&B scope are, it's heavy and I find the fine reticle a little too fine and wish I had ordered a standard P4 and not a P4F. Scope wise, the Ruger PR has a Sightron 8-32x56 with LRMOA reticle with 1/4MOA turrets and I would consider this an excellent scope for the money. The difference in bipods can be seen in the image below:

    Shot gun followed by rifle shooting

    I would agree, I was an OK clay shooter, however, since I now shoot rifles more often, I would say my clay shooting isn't as good (and it was only average) as it once was; I probably need a few clay lessons to 'get back up to speed'.
  15. Dear all, If you own a Ruger Precision Rifle you may be interested in reading this and checking your own serial number. https://ruger.com/dataProcess/rprSafety/
