    Default Share your night vision set up!

    Night shoot season is almost here! What will you be wearing to the big dance?

    Here's mine:

    Housing: AB NightVision Mod-3 Bravo with manual gain (can be worn as binocular or separate into two monoculars for sharing)

    Tubes: Gen 3 autogated green tubes I previously had purchased in used PVS14s, no blems or anything

    Builder: Night Vision Incorporated

    Finish: DIY Krylon spray paint, because nice things need spray painted

    Focus Device: Matbock Tarsier Eclipse X2

    Helmet: Ops-Core Fast Bump with 4D Tactical memory foam pads (these are so amazing), TNVC Mohawk Mk2 Gen1 counterweight pouch, Chinese IR blinky light, also have a knock off ballistic helmet that I want to upgrade to an Ops-Core with the same pads

    Mount: Norotos AKA2, dove tail

    Hand held light: old school TNVC Torch

    Primary Rifle Optic: Trijicon MRO, love the off setting between IR and visible brightness intensities

    Primary Rifle Aiming Laser: Steiner OTAL-C IR, provided pressure pad

    Primary Rifle Light: Surefire M600V white light/IR illuminator with DS00 tail cap, ST07 pressure pad

    Possible Upgrades: Ball-detent aviation mount for the MOD-3 is cool but I don't know if the low profile mount is worth the money. Would love to have a MAWL IR laser for my rifle. I haven't set a pistol up for night fighting yet. I'm still deciding between the DPP and RMR red dot for my Glock 17. Right now if I want to use my handgun I just look under the night vision and use the Glock with irons and TLR1HL.

    Hint: More than all my cars combined.

    But seriously, I bought the stuff piece by piece over the past 5 years or so.

    If you went out and bought everything in my post new right now you would probably want to have $10,000.00 on hand. I saved a few grand buying things used, watching for sales, clipping coupons, etc.

    The sad part is, almost all of my night vision friends have better/more expensive stuff.

    Iíve fought off every thought about buying night vision for the last two years. Then I see shit like this. I hate you

    Is the mawl available to civilians?

    If youíre taking gun fighting than you have to go rmr. The dpp is just not nearly as durable a dot

    I think most people would say I'm nice!

    I'm doing alright for myself at my day job but the way I make things like night vision happen is prioritizing. For example my primary car is a Saturn Ion that I paid $500 for because it had issues running and I fixed it. I do all my own car work form changing oil to swapping engines and body work. My car insurance is inexpensive. I have no cable bill, just an antenna for free channels and a monthly bill for basic internet, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. I do all my own plumbing, wiring, concrete, landscaping, wood work, etc. on my house and only bring in a contractor for what I absolutely have to.

    I spend so much time doing things myself to save money, that it's nearly impossible finding the time to enjoy the money I save! A fortunate problem to have, I know.

    So yeah, if you saw me walking around walmart in my usual greasy torn up clothes your first thought wouldn't be, "I bet he has a sweet night vision set up." haha.

    Oh yea, also no kids, never married. And I have an amazing and understanding girlfriend.

    Yup, civi MAWL: https://tnvc.com/shop/b-e-meyers-maw...visible-laser/

    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!
