Night vision question.

will night vision work in a room with no windows? I heard there has to be lume for the moonlight to work - is that true.

You do need some (although very little) light. However, they have an IR feature that works like a flashlight for the NVGs. No light needed.

no shame

no shame - thanks.

Does anyone know where to buy some night vision or the "IR feature that works like a flashlight for the NVGs. No light needed. " do they sell it to civilians

There are countless companies selling NVDs to civies. A simple Google search will produce you countless hits.

When it comes to the IR Flood; they were never very helpful to us. I've walked into more than few walls while wearing 7Bs/Ds with the IR Flood working.

ambient(sp?) light

yeah, the IR is great once you get used to it, but there is a HUGE limitation. If you turn to look at your buddy and the IR flood is on- you just blinded him.

Only thing we used our IR Floods for was when linking up n the drop zone or moving back inside something like a patrol base. Much easier than flashing a red lens light or something like that.

LOL LOL oh the ol' IR flood!! LOl LOL

Ya, the golden rule is make damn sure the enemy DOESNT use night vision too before ya turn that on!!!!

LOL
