    I've had a pair for five years now. They are great optics, but limit your ability to do much as you either have them on or not. They make for good driving goggles, but when you are out and about, you have to flip them up if you have that capability to see non aided. I like mine when I drive the ATV as they keep the wind out of my eyes, but they suck for walking, there is no depth perception because the image is coming through a single tube, split by prisms.

    Yup thats for sure, my night sites glow nice in them with or without the IR light on.
    I think I'm going to buy an IR laser too that should make things interesting...
    I see 14's in my distant future as well.

    The PVS-14's are way better, but I dunno if they are available for non-military. When I use the 14's, they allow me to keep one eye free, thus making it easier to drive and walk. They also have a nifty brightness adj. knob to prevent temporary blindness if you take them off or flip up onto your kevlar. The 7B and 7D's are way too heavy and quite ridiculous when compared to the PVS-14's.

    Just checked. You can buy them as a civilian, with special pricing for Mil. personnel, but holy crap....4 grand? Specs:

    Man. I'm spoiled.

    An IR laser is the way to go if you are going to be shooting with NV, especially with PVS-7s. PVS-14s are a good option as well since they can also be mounted on the weapon behind a dot sight. PVS-14s are really easy to come by, they are everywhere. You can get them for about $2,000 if you look hard enough. I'm thinking that with the economy collapsing, you will start seeing them become more and more common for less and less.
