Looking at TNV PVS-14 L3 GEN3 OMNI VIII monocle...

What says you? Will be mounted on a Team Wendy LTP. Yeah, I know - Team Hillary, but it’s what I have and it’s still a good bump helmet. Onwards - Will there be ragrets if I don’t go WP Un-Filmed? Primary role will be Home Defense with both Pistol and Rifle. Obviously I’ll be doing some exercises with it to get accustomed to it. What I’m concerned with is the inevitable bumps that’ll occur.

Honestly, I’d forget home defense with NODs — unless you’re talking about engaging threats outside your home, in which case I’d just move.

That said, if you can scrape the extra bucks together, go with buy-once, cry-once and get WP. If that’s simply NOT possible, the GP Omni VIII is a shameless alternative.

In most home invasions, there just isn’t enough time to get your NODs on, power up, get your gun, and go confront intruders. Just grab a handgun/rifle/shotgun with blinding white light and go. In close quarters you want maximum FOV and that 40* circle just ain’t enough. Engaging threats, especially in CQB, is hard enough under good visible light. It’s 100x harder under NODs.

Defending your abode under NODs in the dark is highly inadvisable.

Just my $0.02 in a world where pennies are worthless.

Sound advice.

I would think bright weapon lights would be much more ideal in home defense.

Who hasn’t? In my dreams, I use a knife.

Tier-Zero operators use knives.

I am TIER-ZERO!

At my urban home, I use weapon lights. The ranch house, nods. A 10 minute discussion with the guys at TNVC put me on the right direction for the ranch optics.

Yes. Use “HORTA50” at checkout for 50% off twice the price.

It’s good for ALL purchases at TNVC. No limit, and can be used in conjunction with other offers.

That’s almost too good to be true!

This. My NODs are for 'home defense' in the sense of natural disaster aftermath type of 'happening', overwatch on lookout for Lootie type of role.

On a related note, I got a coupon code from CS email when I asked about the arfcom discount. Is that a "hold on to that, it's the standard arfcom code" thing to reuse for future orders, or a one-time individually generated thing? Not going to post/share, just wondering if I need to email CS again if I make more orders.

This is going to be a long 2 or 3 months...

Is the standard build time 2 - 3 months with TNVC? I'm looking at upgrading my nods. Going with either the DTNVG or RNVGs L3 WP.

Looking at taking a class in January, could still do my old set up, but it would be fun to use the new gear.

Sorry for the thread hi-jack, but this would help with decision timing.

That’s what I’m guessing. May be longer, maybe sooner?
