    Wind up radio

    I eventually bought one of these Solar Hand Crank Self Powered Emergency Radio with LED Flashlight AM/FM Radio Smart Phone Charger Power Bank (Black) https://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fimages-na.ssl-images-amazon.com%2Fimages%2FI%2F614mo8CEEnL._SY355_.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.co.uk%2FSolar-Powered-Emergency-Flashlight-Charger%2Fdp%2FB01MQJSZ1C&docid=jHZcXYwAX5YCvM&tbnid=Xv_AsC81ajvaQM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwi17eeZ3cPgAhWkrHEKHerwAqsQMwi7ASgCMAI..i&w=355&h=355&bih=931&biw=1920&q=Solar%20Hand%20Crank%20Self%20Powered%20Emergency%20Radio%20with%20LED%20Flashlight%20AM%2FFM%20Radio%20Smart%20Phone%20Charger%20Power%20Bank%20(Black)&ved=0ahUKEwi17eeZ3cPgAhWkrHEKHerwAqsQMwi7ASgCMAI&iact=mrc&uact=8

    Long range scope options.

    I have a Schmidt & Bender PM II 12-50×56 PM II SFP P4F 1/8 MOA (bought from Optics Warehouse) on my AI AT and at the range recently someone who was using a March scope upon looking though my scope at the target 600 yards away thought the S&B was far superior to the March (I was surprised). Others at the club have similar scopes to mine, however, there is a mix of SFP and FFP. If you shoot at Diggle you are welcome to look through the scope to see if it suits you.

    Accuracy Int AT - advice required

    I have an AI AT with muzzle brake and I have never had any complaints from shooters either side of me. In my opinion the muzzle brake finishes off the look of an AI, however, that is very subjective.

    Show us your shotguns!

    Very nice, I would like something similar, but in black (I have the spare slot!).

    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?

    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.

    Practical rifle comp Norwich 1980,s

    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?

    Diggle Egg 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.
  14. 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.
