    If you were closer to south-western PA I would invite you out to a night vision range trip and you would be done for then. Once you go down the rabbit hole there's no going back.

    The RMR and DPP can both fail, hence why we leave irons on the gun, but there are some features of the DPP I like. I don't know, still have to give it some thought. Fingers crossed Leupold will release a next gen DPP that addresses the reliability issues!
    Have there ever been any Poofa night shoots?
    How can you have any cookies if you don't drink your milk?

    I donít know of any.

    There is a PGH local club that hosts a monthly night shoot during the winter months where we have people using white light but also a lot of night vision users. I donít want to post the details publicly but I will talk about it via PM if anyone is interested. Anyone who can safely handle a gun in the dark is welcome, itís just not a publicly advertised event.

    I don't take my gear out nearly as often as I would like.
    I would seriously consider making the trip sometime if the shoot was worth it.
    If someone did a Central PA Poofa night shoot it would be a lot of fun, I am sure we are not the only ones here with gear.

    Night shoots are held daily down in Philtytown.
    I know where Hunter's been.

    Mine at work is typically a randomly selected PVS-21 and on occasion, a PVS-14. I use a Team Wendy helmet with a Wilcox mount and a Wendy counterweight. Sometimes I will also be able to try out a clients gear, I've run a few experimental setups I don't even know the designation for, one able to switch between thermal or regular night vision or blend the image together. I've also used PVS-31s recently which are replacing PVS 15s(which I also have used), the PVS 31s are light and have remarkable clarity. I really like those a lot.

    Was the NVD with thermal overlay the AN/PSQ-20B ENVG?

    https://tnvc.com/shop/anpsq-20b-envg/

    Those are sick and have a price tag around $20k. I had the chance to play with one once and I definitely left some drool on it. I would love to get a thermal overlay COTI (clip on thermal imager) attachment for just one tube on my MOD-3 but they suck at $6k. Thermal overlay is so sweet though. I pray someone brings a lower cost alternative to market.

    I cant say I have checked out a PVS-21 in person yet. Is there a reason you utilize this housing for what you do?
    Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.

    The shoots we have are pretty laid back, we gather at the range before dark to set up some targets at various ranges. At dusk we warm up with everyone shooting a dot torture drill with carbine or pistol. Then itís is a hot line free for all, everyone shooting at their leisure at steel and doing some show and tell with gear and guns. I donít think it would be worth traveling across the state and getting a hotel room but if you have no other night vision shoots in your area then it is what it is.

    I don't recognize that 20B model. All I was told is they cost $50k a piece and other than that I don't ask questions and veer out of my lane.

    The PVS-21 I like. Some of my colleagues do not like them. They are flatter on your face and they work for me.
