@TrojanMan let me check his stuff out.

Words do it no justice. Pictures do it no justice.

Saying "It's a superpower" comes close, but does not describe it.

It's

Fucking

Crazy.

I cannot show you how awesome G3 night vision is on the internet.

Videos and pictures will not describe it.

I laughed like a schoolgirl.

I wish I had the words or the pics, but neither does it justice.

It's

Fucking

@pirkle let me use his pvs-7 while I was there. They work really well.

Thermal for spotting.
I3 for target ID

Or so I've heard. I'm to poor for either.

ill tell you whats freakier is being out on the back 40 dark as shit, 33 miles from nearest town, and your thermal picks up faint bootprints in the woods that arent yours.

Agreed.
I thought, "What's the big deal", then I tried my friend's PVS-14. Saved up and bought a tube and parts kit because I had to go be poor somewhere else. Gen 3 NV is amazing.

I got to do some coyote hunting with a friends .243 LMT that had a Gen 3 NV tube in front of the scope and holy shit was that the most pew pew spacegun shit I have ever done.

I started to save for a pvs14. probably even unload some Ars and a bolt gun to help my progress.
I've never had a chance to try any but figure if the pictures and videos are anywhere close then its
going to be worth the wait saving up.

Dude, I bought a $120 GenI night vision monocular this spring.  It's nowhere near the level of what OP is talking about, but it still feels pretty damn cool to look across a field that looks empty and realize there are creatures not that far from you, and all around.  Can also be quite interesting at campgrounds when people don't think you can see what they are doing back in the trees.

I've said it for years.

I try to convey it EVERY time someone gets on here with a gen 1 toy saying, hey, it works! Good enough for me!

That's because, online images and video do shit justice to what Gen 3 offers. ESPECIALLY with good objectives. You can barely see, or not see at all and BAM! It is like green daylight.

Once you've seen through good NV, you'll never be satisfied with anything less.

I first used PVS-14s 16 years ago.  Haven't had the pleasure in 11 years.  One of these days if I can get my hands on a non-watered down laser I'll take the plunge.

I always put these off because I live in suburbia, tons of light pollution. Etc

I want NV but don’t know anyone local with it & refuse to order anything online, sight unseen for $3,000 for openers...

Plus I’ve been spending my extra cash on training lately... got a 700 yard class tomorrow... after which I told instructor I need to be able to shoot rope off a mans neck... and then I need the government to go back to hangings so I can supplement my income that way.

I'm so paranoid about a major tech purchase.  Knowing my luck I'd buy a gen 3, then a gen 4 would come out a day later.

Hell, I barely use the "technology" I have right now.  Most current game system is a Nintendo 64, and I haven't touched it since 7th grade.

I carried 5C, AN-PVS 14 and 7D nods, along with some type of flir in the service, was always fun... but as a civi now, uncle Sam isn't footing the bill anymore for my toys.  Can't (as a general cheapskate) rationalise buying 'em.  My 401K needs more funds than my safe.

Glad you guys are having fun though, enjoy!
