If it's TNVC you got a great tube.
There's a sticky at the top of the NV page that goes over different specs for each Omni.

But you probably got a Omni VIII so it's stupid good. I'm happy with a SN of greater than 24 and resolution above 64.

But I'm a poor grunt and too afraid to look through a white phosphorus tube. I may like it too much

Good stuff!

I placed my order of one
about a month and half
ago with them as well.
My wife seems puzzled each
time she asks me what I
want for Christmas and I keep
saying nothing. She asked me
what I had ordered, but I refrain
from telling her, because I don't
want that convo to go to where
I have to tell her how much it cost.

Those are outstanding numbers, I love the Multicam housing.

Maybe I missed it, did you get a green or a white tube? Either way very impressive stats!

My TNVC tube showed up yesterday, similar specs. What really impressed me were all the 0s in the blem notes... any blems are .003 in or smaller. 

After years of hearing "no such thing as a perfect tube" this gem dropping in my lap is awesome!

I'm not trying to pull anyone's chain, I just would never dream of spending that kind of money without telling her and discussing it.

Simply curious about why others do it.

LOL! I bought my WP 14 while sitting in the front of Target waiting for my wife to finish shopping. She laughingly confessed that she had spent a little more than planned and I did the same

I don't know. It's just what men have to
do, right?

It's not about what it is, it's about
what it cost.

Nice tube, congrats!

Just got a L3 OMNI VIII green tube from TNVC myself & they were extremely helpful &  awesome to do business with for sure.

I just don't think she would understand
that kind of an expenditure on something
she would think is a toy, and I don't feel
like trying to justify it to her.

I had the cash & the inclination after
playing with the two that my buddy
ordered. It's something I've always
wanted & we are at a point in our
lives where we/I can afford it.

Mine arrived today!

It doesn't appear to be far off zero with the vis laser, but will take it to the range and get it squared away over the holiday break.

Nice!

You should post some pictures from that WP tube.
I'm so close to pulling the trigger.

Santa Vic and his elves do send awesome stuff. I need to venture out someplace darker. All the Christmas lights around here make things less impressive picture wise.

I've been enjoying my Omni I got from TNVC in the giveaway.

Well done, and well timed.
Seems that every single time I decide to buy something I can't wait to receive, it's exactly 3 minutes before the sales crew heads out the door to Shot Show.
I have to wait three weeks for them to get home and sift down to my order.
I have developed this skill to perfection over a good many years.
