I was wondering when the assult on night vision sales to the general unwashed masses will start to be looked at by the powers that be. As a side note does anyone have a source that does some comparison shopping of the various units out there?

I have been told that when traveling abroad, some countries won't even allow you to bring any night vision equipment into the country. Is anyone surprised by the Cali restriction mentioned by Paul?

LARRY G- Bringing ANY GEN 3 night vision out of the country in ANY manner is a big-time federal offense. This includes simply boating and bringing it into international waters. The State Department will not negotiate on this issue, so don't claim you didn't know! Every GEN 3 unit I sell comes with the whole legal run-down on the issue.

Any person who knowingly buys, sells, receives, disposes of, conceals, or has in his possession a sniperscope shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) or by imprisonment in the county jail for not more than one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment. As used in this section, sniperscope means any attachment, device or similar contrivance designed for or adaptable to use on a firearm which, through the use of a projected infrared light source and electronic telescope, enables the operator thereof to visually determine and locate the presence of objects during the nighttime.

This part makes perfect sense as civilians would never be in need of such devices, that is unless they were to be committing illegal acts.
