...I bought a Pulsar for my AR to use in my personal battle against Sus scrofa
of the feral persuasion. I can't wait to get it.
I have a Photon XT which I've never even taken to the blind. I guess it never really inspired me, but I really can't say. But I do understand the pitfalls of NV and the beauty of IR. In fact, I got to play with some very sophisticated IR stuff while in the Navy all the way back into the late 70s. It was a TI system retrofitted to the P-3Cs (a mainstay in airborne anti-submarine warfare, for those not familiar).
Anyway, in my searches and researches (didn't do it right the first time) I ran across a reflex-style thermal sight being offered by Sig:
I thought about just using this on my AR, but I had doubts about using it at longer ranges...BUT, it occurred to me that this thing would probably be more than awesome on a scattergun. Has anyone tried this out?
