Who here ever worn NVG's?

Any LEO/military people here who used the PVS7 or similar night vision? Was it generation 1, 2, 3, or 4?

 

I'm thinking of buying one (just to be able to see in the night/dark), and I know it is very freaking expensive, especially the latter generations.

 

How much better are each progressive generations compared to its previous?

Everyone who's done army service in Sweden has tried night vision goggles. It usually involved a smoking officer 200 meters away in pitch black darkness and a bunch of giggling soldiers on a snowy hill in some backwater village. It was fun and it's amazing how much you see (if the object in question is smoking) but I don't see any practical use for it. It was kind of like looking through binoculars; no peripheral vision at all.

 

Good for snipers, I guess. During wartime.

No, sorry, I don't even remember how the damn thing looked. I just remember it was green and quite heavy for something you're supposed to wear on your head.

 

Edit: Uhm.. I think you can forget about Generation 3 night goggles!

Ive just used a nightvision monocular, it was generation 1 with an IR diode. The thing is that you get an extremely narrow FOV, so you cant really see much anyway.. and the Gen1 is crap

You are not allowed to buy NVGs. You have quite enough toys for the time being.

I am more worried about our own government than any muslim. I am just glad we have less than two more years with this bugger of an administration. Hopefully Congress can stonewall Bush and his cronies good enough that we can get out of Iraq and not start another war, this time with Iran. I am sure Bush would love to start a three way war.

When a government becomes corrupt and no longer heeds the will of the people it is the right and duty of the people to depose that government, forcibly if needed, and replace it with a more perfect union.

Hunting, when I used to hunt and going to the shooting range with my brothers and boyfriend. My oldest brother has his own little arsenal.

 

I would like to get a Desert Eagle but I can see a handgun will get me in trouble.
