    Who here uses night vision?

    The thread title is kind of self explanatory. I am also curious for those who have night vision as to what device you use. I am currently upgrading my night vision. I just ordered an Armasight Sirius Gen 2+ standard definition with sjull crusher head mount. It was the most reasonable Gen 2 unit I could find with 1x magnification.

    I also think it would be a good idea to acquire stuff like night vision, body armor, and any last needed firearms relatively quickly due to sone proposed actions by AntiFa.

    I have a Pulsar XQ 50 thermal sight, . . . which allows me to see and identify a coyote at 200 yds, . . . hogs out to probably 250 or 300 depending on their size, . . . deer out to 400, . . . and the published deal is a human at almost a mile (I don't buy that advertisement however).

    It will show me a fly fisherman in a Vietnam style boonie hat and long sleeved jacket, . . . fly fishing at 350 yds.

    It will show me 3 dudes in a pram fishing for crappies at 350 yds.

    It will show a mouse scurrying across the dirt field at about 35 or 40 yds.

    It will also pick up recent footprints under the correct conditions.

    I spent several months doing my best to find a good unit, . . . this is the one I chose, . . . and I am very seriously satisfied with it.

    Still do not have it mounted to any of my rifles, . . . have not decided which one it will be that gets it.

    Still also having fun learning how to operate all the features, . . .

    There is a youtube video where the guy runs thermal against gen 3 NV, . . . side by side, . . . and it was THE REASON I chose thermal over NV.

    May God bless,

    Thermal is also pretty cool. I know all about its capabilities and limitations as we use thermal imaging cameras in the fire service. Our thermal imagers are also pretty high in quality. Anyway, I just received my Gen 2 night vision monocular. I got the skull crusher so I can wear it hands free. I have a few IR lasers and red dot sights that are compatible with night vision devices. I would love thermal stuff, but I cannot find a set that runs on standard batteries (reliant on a funky charger) and is within my price range. I can also afford to buy a few more Gen 2 devices as mine was pretty reasonably priced, and I would rather have a few decent items over one amazing one for redundancy.
