It’s not too often the crew here at The Gun room Inc. gets jazzed about another widget but today was different. Today the little kids came out of us all when we were handed a second gen night vision scope. This is not the old school Vietnam era starlight scope of yore, this is new school digital with multiple modes and reticles and it even works in the day time without a hitch.
This writer was more than impressed when I went to the pitch black basement and touched the power button. I was imagining clearing a bad guy hideout in the dark when someone turned on the lights. Surprise the unit didn’t washout and with a simple flip of the cover the integrated pin hole made the whole operation pretty tacticool!
While these scopes are intended for hogs and bad guys they make night vision available to the average guy for pennies on the dollar. If we would have had this tech back when I was in the service I think some things would have gone much better.
