    If you were ever on the fence about buying Night Vision GET IT NOW. It's not going to get any cheaper. In my opinion, buying a Gen 3 unit is worth the extra money, night and day difference really. A helmet mounted unit is far more useful than a weapon mounted unit. Although, being weapon capable is a nice option. A Gen 3 monocular paired with an IR laser is about as good as it gets. I bought my unit from TNVC they were very good about explaining the differences. Here is a great nightvision subforum on ar15.com.

    As for what I would suggest getting, well that depends on your budget. Everyone's needs are different and cost is a factor to most normal people. IMO Sell first born, sell tricks, sell other guns, etc... I would personally have one dialed in system than 20 guns in various calibers. Below is a list of things I would recommend if you can afford it. These are available to civilians, there is no waiting period. But these could easily be banned. So don't wait.

    LDI DBAL-I² Class 1 IR Laser ? Tactical Night Vision Company

    Ops-Core FAST Base Jump Shell ? Tactical Night Vision Company

    You will also need a mount for your helmet. I would call Victor or one of the fine Gentlemen at TNVC and speak with them.


    I just thought if some of you were on the fence, and hadn't thought about it I would bring it up. These are ITAR control items.

    I'm a NV dealer also in case anyone needs a PVS-14.

    Do you have any prices or equipment listed anywhere that we could see online? Or just contact you privately? Any group deals? Would be interested in hearing what you have to say on the subject as far as recommendations, setups etc...

    Do you have the ability to hand select tubes?

    I'm not too high tech. You can check out the demo unit I use. It's a good example of the image.
    I don't get the reject tubes. Just the hand select.
    My demo is an ITT Pinnacle. I have accounts at most of the distributors including TNVC. I actually shoot with those guys.
    My pricing is usually a few hundred below online retail.
    The GT-14 is a great value for people that don't need to go into battle with it. Of course it's the weekend, and I don't have the pricing with me....

    I do know that my stuff takes a beating though.

    I can say that made a world of difference. I had an old Gerber pouch, filled it with a 1.5lbs of lead and attached it to my goggle strap. Feels so much better on my neck. Here's my setup.

    I hunt coyotes at night with both a flir ps24 and a pvs 14. I have a 2nd pvs 14 that will be hitting the classifieds soon.

    Nevermind, I meant to say bigfoot as well.

    Be careful - shooting Bigfoot is a felony in at least one WA county. :p

    This is what I was thinking. All this tactical gear...Most of the members on this forum probably get winded just from looking for the remote for the TV.

    You know this is the problem with this board. All these people cracking jokes are going to be the same ones complaining that NV is now $50,000 and everyone is gouging.:rolleyes:
