.To be fair the only issue I bought was because I recognised some of Firecrest's art work in it and thought it may have been some how linked to BCUK.
I thought that a lot of the: try this, do that, make this sort of stuff had been lifted straight off here a dumbed down slightly.
I gotta say the cover price doesn't justify the content and since getting into Bushcraft I have learnt more skills and picked up better advice on this forum than I should imagine a life time of subscription to that magaizine would generate.
Oh and SWAT was a great magazine and I remember it fondly from my yuuf.
Got to aggree with you there Mark. Thats one of the reasons why I cancelled my subscription. It was a pretty good mag in the early days but its gone way down hill. Just looks like they want to make as much wonga as possible (to many adverts now)Fact is that the mag is aimed at people that are Grylls fans rather than Mears et al fans.
So it's style over substance.
