I would just like like to see different pictures of thermal or night vison guns and set ups.

This is a Bracebuilt 8 inch 300 blackout with a bering optics hogster. Has worked great so far with a few coons and one pig so far.

Savage 110 Ultralite, 308 Win, Wraith 4K Mini 2-16x32. I installed a short picatinny rail on the front of the stock to attach the illuminator. To get proper eye relief had to use Sightmark's bolt action adaptor to mount the scope. I really like this setup, it has killed a bunch of pigs and coyotes.

I also have a AR-10 308 with a Wraith HD 4-32x50 on it but its so heavy I rarely use it now that I have the other rig. I keep it around for a loaner. Its also killed a bunch of pigs, even more than the Savage.

This has been my go to rig for the last couple years.

ATN 4K Pro, 5-20 with the supplied IR illuminator, Browning X-Bolt hunter, 308 Win.

I upgraded theIlluminator to the NightSnipe NS 750 IR Extreme, which was quite an improvement.

Two things in particular that are appealing, one can get into this for under $1K,

The dual streaming via wi-fi to a tablet or smart phone sure makes it easy if you are shooting over bait. Set up your rifle in a tripod and stream to your tablet.

An example........



Also, it works well as a daytime scope to boot!



I've taken well over 50 hoglets with this in the last two years or so.

One caveat, if I had it all to do over again, I would get the 3-14 rather than the 5-20, as i very rarely shoot over 100 yds, and the 5x is somewhat limiting in the field of view.

This vid was taken on the occasion of an annual "hoot and shoot" I attend with about 25 other guys. I had limited out on the allotted critters ( dead hoglet to the left of the feeder) and was entertaining myself waiting on a "big-un" that I would have to pay for.

Bering Optics Super Hogster.

Here is a video of a hog I shot at 130 yds with my 308 WIN and Wraith mini 4K. It was right at sunset in the woods so the video is a little dark.. I was amazed that pig run off, you can see the gapping hole in his head.
