    night vision scopes

    I need educating on night vision scopes.. anyone run of these for hogs or predators?.. I read where gen 2 is better than gen 1.. an gen 3 is better than gen 2.. whats a good manufacturer? whats a good magnification for NV with clarity out to 150 yards? Also I read about one NV scope that goes on the end of your regular scope.. anyone know about these types?..

    I know you usually get what ya pay for.... I would like to hear some real world hunting opinions.. Not depend on a website that sells them.

    Thanks

    capt greg,

    I was cruising midwayusa a while back and they have a night vision scope that mounts in front of your existing scope to provide night vision without having to sight another scope. Not sure about price or maker, but I liked that concept.....

    ordered a nv scope and a nv mono, both genIII.. figured it would get old having to swing the rifle around ever time ya wanted to check things out, so the mono should come in very handy.. plus the mono will work with my eo tech

    I use a Laser Designator for night time Hog Hunting in Florida, Works great, and runs about $400 and mounts right on your scope. Lights up the whole area around the feeders and the Hogs cant see it.

    got my night vision gear yesterday.. stayed out all night playin with it.. man o man I had no idea how well these things work. The monocular fastens to head gear an makes it so you can walk hands free.. I was so amazed with the monocular I didnt even try the scope out yet...
