too. While you are jacking off, setting up a 1/2 mile shot, somebody you never SAW will kill you, from 300m. No you AINT got a spotter for shtf, and no you WON'T have all day, every day, to do nothing but look around, and no, most people aren't as stupid as you. When dangerous men "come calling' it will be at night, and no you CAN'T look around with NVD'S, the way you can in daylight, either. They "tunnel vision" your eyes,and they fatique you. You can't just "scan" and pick up movement or flash, etc, at half a mile or more, like you can with your eyes, in daylight. So only IDIOTS claim that "night vision" takes away the advantage of darkness.
