    With the price of night vision gear...I think we would all like to "find" some!!!! Uncle Sugar watches that stuff awfully close.

    I am in agreement that the night is were the hunters need night vision. If there are to many folks out in the first couple of months of a major event trying to hunt everything will become nocturnal.

    Attacking people at dawn or dusk will become normal again. Just due to the lack of night vision for the 90%...

    Thermal and night vision will be a major thing post event.

    You got me thinking . I wouldn稚 mind some thermal vision . That could really give a guy some advantages day time and night time . Back that up with a helmet mounted night vision monocular. Major advantages over the average people.

    Well, they need a light source of some kind. A little moon or city sky light is plenty. I picked up a demo Gen III NV from a gun shop with perfect glass, for a song. Sure with I could stumble on that one again.

    Yea the IR gives you away . Hopefully none of us have to face a group that is well trained and has better NV gear.
    Another reason I知 leaning towards thermal
