Night vision is expensive. Then, there are all sorts of options, but they are sold by competing dealers so it is hard to find fair comparisons about them. It is true force multiplier as every day we experience darkness and the vast majority would not have something like night vision. It is also something that people won’t be throwing together in their garage after a SHTF event. You either have it or you don’t.
Not that long ago a night vision salesman was pushing a product I was really interested in. Then he started making all sorts of impossible claims. Made me decide not to buy from him. It can be hard to sort through the marketing bullshit, especially if you have limited knowledge or experience with night vision.
NITEWALKER posted an excellent comparison video of various Dual PVS-14 bridge mounts. Not a whole lot of people would get the chance to have their variety of sub $1000 bridge mounts on hand. That why I am so grateful to see this sort of information shared. No way would I be buying all that stuff.
