I haven?t yet because I?m cheap! I?ve been watching the prices fall for last couple years. Thinking maybe a Black Friday purchase this year. I?d like to acquire a couple, kinda hoping you guys would chime in with some expertise. Thought maybe if I posted in here Bobby might even grace us with his presence..... :popcorn:

I actually just sent you a PM about something completely unrelated. As for NV scopes it's going to depend on:
how much you want to drop
how far you wish to see
how far you wish to see and accurately identify the object that has your attention

 Give me some time to look and get some prices and links and I will type something better. So possibly this weekend if you can wait for a somewhat articulate response.
So, Bobby...being the calculating trained warrior NCO that you are.  Take the appropriate action, Execute!

Shawn look at this months NRA rifleman magazine. Great article comparing NV technology.

I?m leaning thermal for my next NV purchase.

Oh thermal would be great, but the price really goes north!

All this digital stuff is really coming of age, would like to see the thermal prices drop like the scopes.

If I could accurately identify at 400 yards I?m probably pretty good with that. Depending on what I could buy for the money I?m thinking of buying two units and have them set up on ar platforms, potentially one on an ar10 even. And you have time, thinking Black Friday shopping time frame. Need to get jk axle and tire upgrade finished. Looking at aftermarket steering box setup currently and those aren?t cheap either.

If you are planning on waiting for Black Friday then I can take my time and get a decent report for you. A friend at work is looking at buying one pretty soon, not sure which; so if he does I can get some hands on and drop a review in the forum.

No it?s not a trick question.  Just bum one from someone. It?s a good article. ;
