Ive got a hunt coming up where I could see one being invaluable. I can already think back to many times walking out of the woods at dusk scaring pigs or deer. I just don't see how it isn't extremely useful for those low light situations. I know I could have killed a few pigs if I could have had one already just walking up on them on my way in from hunting.

What are you guys using?

The Burris scanners are on serious closeout at a number of places, including Midway. They aren't the best, but they aren't the worst either. I've got the 35mm which I bought for cheap, and it was essential to finding downed game shot at late twilight on my last hunt.

I am looking at the AGM TM15 in 256 since it is right in my budget. I really don't want to spend more than $800 so it is between the TM10 for 500 or the TM10 for 800.

I am not sure of the difference except the 1.0 vs 1.5 X magnification right off the bat. As far as I can tell that is the only difference. Maybe one of the guys can chime in on any other differences or even a better thermal I should be looking at for that price range.

I am sure there are others like me interested in a budget thermal.

Thanks

Looks like currently out of stock but accepting back orders. I’d give them a call.
