Iím entertaining the thought of buying a thermal. Would like to stay under $3500 if possible, also donít want anything ATN due to their bad reviews. My needs would include the ability to shoot accurately out to 200-250 yds.
Also want built in video recording and rechargeable battery pack. What do you guys use? Thanks.

If you scroll through this form a few pages back, you will find the answer to all of your questions. There's a pretty clear consensus of the best current options.

That may be capitalism's way of telling you to buy a Pulsar Ö

Yep pulsar is way in demand right now. We've caught up a little bit though. Just cleared a bunch of backorders with the last shipment. Holler at me if you have any questions on which direction to go.

Well I ended up with a pulsar XQ38 apex. As most know, there isnít really anything available anywhere. I was ordering some stuff from midway USA , and by chance it popped up on a suggestion. They had one in stock, and 3 days later itís on my desk. I hope it works out, as Iím going to test it out this weekend. Many thanks to all the people that helped me out with all my questions.

You'll have great luck with that apex. Probably the best thermal for the dollar out right now.

I agree on the Apexes. Heck of a deal if you don't need internal video recording. They are a real value.

I really wanted the recording ability but none were avaliable. Iíll be adding the DVR later after I figure out how to use it efficiently. Donít want to mess with two things at one time right now. Iíll be contacting yíall for the system a little later. Once again thanks.

Got to use the pulsar apex XQ38 last night. All I can say is wow! Ended up harvesting 5 hogs. One boar was 230lbs, and the long shot of the night was right at 237 yds. Was able to identify animals out beyond 600 yds easily. I think Iím addicted now...lol
