Helped out a bud with some friends he had in from California. 20 round magazine and the Thermal goodies were all new to them.

We took off on the Pioneer looking to get busy and the hunting gods, put us on a sounder pretty quick. We were on a 100yd or so walk trying to get position in tall wheat while they were walking away. I had the Helmet/Monocular on, he was doing as best he could with my 14lb spotting scope. grin I was just about to suggest we head back to the Pioneer and come up on them from the other direction when the piggies decided to head straight back at us, at a pretty good pace. I had him put the rifle up on my shoulder so he could see them, based on rifle position he was looking at the wrong ones. I pushed the rifle over and asked him to giddy up with the shot! I think it was 3-4 rounds dropped the first one quartering away and the larger second one, he dropped first shot.

They were tough to find in the wheat given we had to walk back to the Pioneer to get it. Finally had to drive around with one of us standing in the back with the helmet on to find them, even then it was tough. Found the first one (I forgot my .40 at home) and just as I got out I thought I better borrow my rider's .357 he brought just in case. Sure enough... walk up to him and he's looking at me with much anticipation of my arrival! He takes off along my left side, I fired 3 shots with the pistol, but couldn't see much with no night sights and the monocular over one eye. He clicked off a few rounds from the rifle and rolled him over again. Fortunately the second looks to have been DRT where he was.

Great fun, particularly giving someone the chance to do something they'll remember and talk about for a long time.
