It was really fun.

Make sure you latch your shit, also, I'm beginning to think lanyards are a good idea.


So my question is; once I dropped it and turned it on afterword I noticed no issues in the image (shading, spots) am I good to go?

Pretty much... If anything is busted, it will show. MUM's are pretty strong.

Threw a pvs-14 27.8 s/n with a 4.5x lens attached off a 14ft hunting tower over a year ago still going strong.

Unit was left in a folding chair's cup holder, chair was folded and thrown to the ground.
When picking up chair pvs14 was on the ground next to the chair, turned it on and no spots or damage noticed.
They can take a beating.

Send these said broken Mums to me along with a TNVC order for two switches. I will take care of the problem and they will be good as new. Can you toss in one of those hats and a bumper sticker ?
