RUINS your night vision, and lights you up real nice for enemies to shoot at. An efficient can on the 223 leaves no flash whatsoever.

I have fired buckshot from shotguns at night many, many times at nutria.

It has never limited my night vision or hearing for more than a couple of seconds. The flash is not as bad as it is portrayed on TV or in magazines, as most of it is to the front. If anything, the flash illuminated the target for a quick, successive shot.

223 fan, you have been reading too many old comic books. Flash from the shotgun isn't that bad. I suggest that you see an eye care professional if it actually ruins your night vision.

Flash from a 20" barrel isn't really noticable except by its illumination of the target. Out of an 18.5" barrel, you see a few sparks, still won't completely ruin your night vision. Any shorter and they aren't much good for anything but entry uses an then your night vision will be ruined by all the other firing (or the lights being on).

You don't know much about longarms do you?
