Quote from: Optimist on January 20, 2023, 09:40:04 PMEven with all my long-winded rambling I forgot to mention the two other reasons I've been wanting to get a night vision device.The first one is that I'm interested in seeing how my stuff looks under night vision.The second is to be able to scan and try to see if some people are trying to sneak up on us at night either using a dim light or their own night vision. Night vision is becoming more and more common, so I think there is more risk of bad guys using it.Both of those reasons are more tinfoil hat, but the world has seemed somewhat more scary to me the last few years. Not just because of the big global events but because I've seen a bunch more people online who have a lot of gear and training and who also have (IMO) nihilistic attitudes and bad intentions. I don't know if these people were always so prevalent and I just happen to be noticing them more often, or if there are a lot more of them recently.For both of the above two reasons I think an inexpensive handheld might suit my purposes fine, but I want the scope for non-SHTF reasons.

I think the economy has gotten so bad that there are alot more desperate people than there were say 5 years ago. Just look at the amount of homeless. The breaking down of unions over the last four decades. A $7.25 federal minimum wage. Rents and houses skyhigh.
