They close groups because a huge number of social justice warriors spend their entire dole money on infiltrating any group even vaguely related to firearms, then berating Facebook with complaints until they shut the group down. Closing the group doesn't prevent them, but does tend to allow the group to last a little longer before it gets canned.

Yep...
I see no value to any of that what so ever.
I thought it would be closed for reasons that are something to do with it being "guns"...
And that makes it utterly ridiculous & all should simply boycott it...!!
I cannot for the life of me understand why people would use a platform that treats you like that...
And this is exactly why we have the issues we have (in relation to gun laws).

If it were on the open net with reasonable policing, it would not be a problem---how long do the numb-nut'd warriors last on here...???
Maybe 2 or 3 posts at best if they are so extraverted in their behavior, maybe half dozen baiting ppsts before we gang rape them if they are slowly testing the waters.

This is exactly the type of behaviour being discussed last night on the 'USA thoughts of our gun laws' thread', that demonstrate how we inadvertantly bow to being ass-pummelled.

Now...can you or pete get me a cheap night vision thing on there before you begin your boycott... :lol:

Seriously, this is a prime example of how being in it to win it, actually causes us to loose...slowly...but all the same we loose...

I dont mean to derailthis into a gun laws bitching session, but i feel this NEEDS to be said...& ill do my part & keep out.
Now back to night vision...

I received my Thermal Monocular today. Night Tech 25.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXv2_38R8bM

For the price, I'm impressed. $1550 delivered.

I heated a coffee cup of water to 40 degrees, hopefully dropped to about 38, body temp of a bunny, by the time I got it outside. Could pick it up from about 120m away.

I took the Night tech out this morning to see how it faired in the field. Keeping in mind that I've had no exposure to any other thermal setups before.
From a distance of possibly 100m away I could see two small white blobs, their movements gave it away that I was looking at a pair of rabbits.
Later on I saw a larger animal disappear down the gully, I suspected it was a fox. I gave a few quick whistles and he climbed back out to see what was happening. Once again it's movements let me know it was a fox. By the time I put the thermal down and grabbed the rifle, he got wind of me and quickly pissed off.
This local area I go to is very frequently used by other shooters so anything there is notoriously flighty. I think that with the use of torches alone, I wouldn't have even known the critters were there.

I'm not going to say that this unit is in the league of any of the thermal scopes that have been mentioned before in this thread. I did a lot of research before making this purchase and I was reasonably confident of what I was getting.

I'd also say that this particular model could be described as being the entry level model in the "usable" range of thermal viewers, meaning any models with less performance than this wouldn't be of much use. On the whole, I'm happy with this purchase. I'm confident it's going to take a lot of the frustration and guess work out of my previous trips, stumbling along with my torches.
Combined with the Infra red attachment, I'm geared up for my next trip out the farm in September.

It’s good u have lots of time to practice before the September hunt. All the settings and buttons take time to get familiar with and that practice can save u heaps in the field. Good luck

Yeah,it's a bloody good thing hey. Although I've learnt the hard way not to put the flat top batteries in the charger the wrong way.....
Can be a little finicky to get everything spot on and focussed properly when it's on the scope sometimes,but when it's sorted,you can see quite a distance. I've shot a fair heap of rabbits with it in a short time,and it's absolutely fine well past 100m with the on board IR torch.

I've been leaving the IR add on torch at home lately, its just extra weight. I've learnt to click the onboard IR off and the leave the unit in standby until I'm preparing for a shot, saves heaps on the battery.

I spot a white blob with my thermal monocular and then ID and hopefully crack a shot off at it with the PARD. Great set up.

Hey MM, it's said that a parallax adjustment scope is needed for the Pard. I personally didn't find much difference with it.
If you don't have a PA, I'd try it with your current setup before buying anything else.
Just a tip.

Actually, I’m gonna retract my comment on not needing a parallax adjustment.
Went out early this morning, my fixed parallax 3-9 was blurry, no good at all.
