    during my time in Adelaide, at Lincoln College, I mostly drank coopers. But there was a pub in port Adelaide that had some decent local porters and stouts. I made a point to try everything i could. And VB was a second choice... I was drinking Bells and New Holland when Bells was a local...

    Compact laser/illuminator setup?

    Can you operate the pointer independently from the illuminator? From playing around with the MAWL, and my PVS 14, it seems like I never need an illuminator indoors. And unless I turn the gain way down the illuminator is usually too bright. Even on the lowest setting. I’m tempted by the PL or RL...

    Compact laser/illuminator setup?

    That’s pretty much the reason for visible. So that should wifey need to perforate an uninvited guest, or convince them to leave when I’m not home. It may help her to have a an easy to locate dot that doesn’t require a cheek weld, to indicate where the hole will go... With the current setup...

    Compact laser/illuminator setup?

    The T2 could easily be moved to another gun. But, this is about as high above the rail as I could go without changing the brace.

    Compact laser/illuminator setup?

    I’ll have to check out the A3. That sounds like the solution. I liked that the cqbl was so small. And the vampire could do two roles. And it’s unlikely that they would be accidentally switched to ir. But the A3 might be better overall. The height of that optic is another issue. The stocks and...

    That actually sounds about perfect... how is the size?

    Compact laser/illuminator setup?

    I’m looking to set up an Ir/visible laser and white light/Ir illuminator setup for a B&T APC 45. Room on the rail is a premium! The purpose of the gun is to replace the AR 9mm that is currently the bedroom HD gun. It will also serve for backyard pest control. after playing with it a while...

    Yet another mount question

    Thanks for the info. I’ve been running around all day and auto fill on my phone got me. So I meant to clarify. Yes, the RQE bridge was the pricey option that I found. Not really hot on spending that. Especially, since i don’t think this team Wendy exfil is going to last long. I really need an...

    Yet another mount question

    Will the light weight bridge mount give me enough foreword protrusion to clear glasses and occupations width to accommodate my giant head? Considering the G11 doesn’t.

    Yet another mount question

    I will check that out! Thanks! My biggest concern is knocking against the eye pro. So hopefully the rhino will get me there. At this point I’ll even drop the coin on the knight vision joe system if it means I quit wasting money on stuff that doesn’t work.

    Yet another mount question

    I am new to nv and have a TNPVS14 that I just got a week or so ago. In anticipation I ordered a TW xfil and scored a deal on a G11 Mount on Black Friday. I finally got it set up and the mount/j arm don’t seem to work for me. 1 the mount won’t adjust far enough out to lower the 14 without...

    DBAL PL misc items

    I’m curious about that unit as well. Does yours suffer the switch delay that some reported? I’m actually interested in the rl version for a pcc. And if i don’t like it, move it to a handgun and try a vampire light cqbl setup.

    3M Helmet experience?

    So, minor update. I decided to skip the 3M lids for now. The ops core sizing seems safer to me if I order an xxl. I went and tried on my bike helmets for a size comparison. And I really squeeze into the top end of my 63cm aero helmets. Optics planet carries a warning of gov and Leo only sales...

    3M Helmet experience?

    Op indicated it’s in stock. But they have a le/govt/qualified purchaser warning. I’m not sure if I’m qualified per their requirements. Only one way to find out I guess. Bots have had no warning. The full kit, rails, shroud, bunnies, etc seems like a good deal with 12% off. my head is kind of...

    3M Helmet experience?

    Awesome. I think I’ll give that a try. I could swing the ULW. the size is the biggest thing that gives me pause. And are there any vendors for 3M you would recommend? I already have a Black Friday coupon for OP. It’s not great.

    3M Helmet experience?

    I was wondering if anyone knows anything about 3M helmets? I’ve been looking for a stable mount for a PVS14, counter weight, and helmet mounted ir illuminator. I know the usual suspects but I’m trying to be a little thrifty. And the Gentex TBH, HHV, ops core, etc don’t seem to be able to...

    Surefire Vampire Lights

    Does anyone have issues with excessive spill causing the NODs to down gate when using the the vampire lights? I don’t have one. And am new to the world of NV. Was looking at one and someone whose opinion I trust indicated that it “could be an issue.” Because of the lack of focus adjustment...

    Asheville can be fun though. Lots of brewery’s. Good food. Good hiking. Though the better fly fishing is farther north. And Phil Flack is there. He ushered me into the world of NFA when it was a royal pain in the *$$ to get nfa stuff in NC. Can’t be all bad. Hell, Cary and chapel hill aren’t...
