what's going on guys black scout survival before we get in today's video real quick um just got a new shirt in i always like to tell you guys this is the rebellious t.
With b-e-l-l because the liberty bell and on the sleeve is the rebellious stripes flag and as always on the inside is a little secret message so check that out in the store since the civil war video we did we have gotten so many.
Questions about night vision it's constantly a reoccurring question it's came up on lives a few times and things like that so i want to kind of talk about it and then i also want to punch in a direction where to get it from now let me just first say off this start this off this is not a paid video.
I did not get these for free i pay for everything myself typically i don't take things of this value from anyone if i do overtake anything users from a small company that i'm trying to help out so anyhow the first question i always get is can you get cheap night vision you can't get cheap night vision.
Um there you can see some like on wish and ebay and stuff like that for like 100 bucks and years ago a company i got hooked up with with someone they sent me these chinese knockoff pbs14 and it was like looking through a looking at a tv screen.
A mile away is what it would look like so don't even waste your money or time on that stuff you know so the other thing people look at is digital digital versus analog which you analog is what you see is true night vision what the military uses digital has a delay so you know cameras and things like that has night vision.
But it has a delay and in a firefight you don't want a delay especially if you're running and moving you need true real time uh info get getting fed to you so i would not fool around with digital either back in the day whenever i first my first deployment um.
I use pvs sevens which was the precursor to the fourteens uh gen twos really grainy it was uh you look through two lenses to a cyclops lens up front and uh you know at the time it was good stuff but we have much better things now a lot of people ask should i get you.
Know duels binocular versus binocular and i kind of got my own opinion on that and the main thing i guess is on your budget can you afford binocular do you want to invest in binocular you know for for me i don't really think it's necessary um as much as you know what are you going.
To be doing with it is the main consideration there's a reason why i choose monocular there's a few reasons why i'll choose monocular and i'll go over that but my nose is is much more expensive like i said and you you know you're running you're still getting an h2 40 degree.
Uh field of view like you would with a pbs14 now the thing is is that your your eyes are seeing the same picture versus not with a pbs14 so like i said budget to me i'd only run duels if am issued them uh it's my job b if i'm you know it's i'm larping on youtube that's not.
My thing i'm you know what have you or just got a lot of money to blow you know but to me a lot of people asking about night vision i think night vision is a crucial a critical item like i see guys with huge gun safe so tons of guns i don't.
Want to spend money on night vision but i got all these guns i'd rather have one or two rifles and night vision night vision is necessary to any um body that's serious about any kind of uh you know prepping uh patriots that they're gonna.
Fight some kind of war or something like that it's a crucial piece of gear um so kind of talk about we're going to talk about accessories and things like that let's start off by talking about a few reasons why i like the pbs14.
Well one big reason is like you just seen i can take it off so you you know it's kind of weird to walk around with duels i can take this off i can take off this j arm put this on a lanyard on my neck and essentially have it and i can conduct surveillance if i need to there's.
Attachments i can attach this to a actual camera with a you know lens i can look very far take photos doing surveillance part investigative work things like that i can attach this to a weapon and run it with you know if i'm doing some kind of design designated marksman shooting or.
Something like that shooting from a position now to me i would rather wear it on my head than have it on a weapon because it kind of defeats the purpose of night vision whereas i can walk around the sea whereas i'm having to walk around and trying to look through.
Uh scope to see it just it doesn't make a lot of sense to me so i don't like weapon mounting unless you're like doing some kind of you know from distance shooting and things like that but a lot of benefit there a lot of reasons why you can see that happening.
Not having to wear a helmet now you do get some kind of brace thing that you can wear but i always recommend a helmet just because it distribute distributes the weight better and you know you can move it up and down and everything that you you need to there's lots of.
Different night vision there's you know gen 2 and stuff like that but i would only go with gen 3 and this one's a gen 3 white phosphor they have green phosphor i prefer the white i don't find it giving me as much eye fatigue as the green does so i'll definitely choose the white phosphor.
And this is autogated as well so what that means is is that if i go into an area like a room and there's a light in there i'm not going to get blinded and it's not going to damage the night vision so a lot of people have a misconception too about night vision.
When you're looking through night vision you it's kind of like a dslr camera you have to actually focus on what you're looking at so if i'm focused out to where like i would be you know fighting fighting range and then i try to look at a map i'm gonna have to adjust it so you.
Definitely need to practice doing that adjusting quickly so you can read something or what have you or you can just flip it up and look with your you know normal eye especially that's a big factor in the sense that if i'm running on one eye this other eye states night vision or night time.
Natural night vision adapted so if i flip it up this this eye has been looking at the light and i still have nighttime adapted vision right so another benefit too is that if i'm around i can actually see what everybody else can see but then i can also see night vision now when you're running.
Night vision 2 you're kind of going to get to where you only see what's illuminated by the night vision so it's not like you're going to be looking dark and this lit up through the device you're going to be seeing what's in the device like i said you're going to have a 40.
Degree field of view so it is going to be constrained and you're you could get eye fatigue let's now discuss shooting with nods okay so you're going to need a laser especially with a pbs 14 if you're running by nose you can.
Run passive and actually look through it and optic because you're running both eyes because of that depth perception that you're gonna you know kind of lose with that one eye running through pbs14 you're going to need a laser this is the pec15.
Civilianized version atp il and essentially what it has is ir laser and illuminator so i can illuminate an area and that's very important because night vision runs off of ambient light so there's no light in a room you're going to need to turn that illuminator on and i'll show.
Here me standing in front of a mirror and i've got a rifle with a ir illuminator on it so you can see that it looks really really clear but without that you you know it's kind of you can still see but it's you know kind of grainy looking so you need an illuminator.
And you can attach that to uh so i'm going to show you just an illuminator and this is a surefire this one flips between white light and ir so right now i'm hitting the ir and this illuminates pretty well this can also mount your helmet so if you're not using a gun and you're just walking.
Around you can you know just illuminate with that so you're not having to point a gun around wherever you're walking to so back to this pet 15 they're expensive i think i paid about 1500 1400 for this um it also has a visible laser.
Which is good so if i'm with a crew i have night vision they don't i can then switch over to a red laser so they can see i can tar i can paint a target per say for them so like you know in the military back in the day we used to shoot tracer rounds so that we could give our.
Uh you know fire team or squad the general direction of fire or target and then for this i can paint a target paint a building paint a doorway something like that and of course it's going to give away my position but at least i'm not firing shots it may not give away my position.
Because they may not know that i'm even there but if everybody has nods we can paint it with the illuminator ir laser so you can see the ir laser here um looks looks good in the illuminator but definitely something you need now if you're running duals you can get a eotech that goes dim.
Enough so then blind you know drowned out everything on the night vision device um because if you try to run a regular one with it it's gonna you know just basically blind everything you can't really make out uh the optic before we talk about the helmet mounts and everything.
Let's talk about some accessories that are good pieces of kit and something that goes beyond shooting this is a little firefly and basically you can snap this on to a nine volt and i can throw this anywhere it doesn't matter if i lose it but i can mark a territory i can give it to my family my family actually has one.
Of these so in case of a bad situation they can mark themselves so i can find them with that nobody else can see it and also military strobe uh has an ir filter on top of it same thing we can do that with it the other thing is ir chem lights you have little tiny ones.
Like this and then ones like this so we can mark areas i don't care if i leave this behind i can put in an area mark a trail i can do lots of things with this clear rooms throw it in there you know nobody else sees it i can see i've cleared the room.
So good good good to have if you're running night vision so we have here on my this ops core helmet i said you really need a helmet a good helmet i do have a team wendy as well this is my backpacking mountaineering helmet and the mount does fit on there.
Too you notice i don't have ear protection on this because i'm not shooting in this helmet but whatever i'm doing stuff maybe walking or what have you i can throw my night vision on this helmet it doesn't look tactical it's not spooking you know making everybody spooky.
So something good to have a non-military helmet but this is the team wendy search and rescue one and then this is the op score ops core is a great helmet i love it it's my favorite got a wilcox g24 mount pretty sure that's what it's called g24 it goes up and down it kind of.
Will take it away from your eye put it close to eye just depending on how you see it'll snap off really quickly it'll break away so now on the pbs14 i have a wilcox j arm now what this allows me to do is to rotate it from one eye to the other.
Okay so if i get fatigued in one eye i can pop it and go to the other eye and you can kind of figure out all this stuff pretty quickly you know it does have this little pinhole cap here now this pinhole cap is designed to be able to use in.
You know with lots of ambient light it actually works pretty well in in street you know lots of street lights you can run with this and actually see just as good as without it almost so i keep mine on there also to protect the lens all right guys so i got my night vision from us.
Night vision and the reason why i chose them versus anybody else not because they gave me anything like said i pay for mine outright just like you do but because i got it very quickly within about four days everybody else said there was a long wait and i wasn't.
Into waiting so the other thing is they got a lot of other accessories so to me versus having spending the money on duals i would get something called a kodi or clip on thermal imaging because this can clip onto a pbs 14 and us night vision cell.
That sells these i'm going to be getting one myself but clipping this on i can see thermal through my pbs14 so you know you can you see guys running i was even thinking about doing it running a flare on this side that you can flip up flip down and then flip back but why not just run.
It through my night vision device that'll probably my next purchase with them but if you do want to get some night vision i suggest going get it now don't wait don't be stocking up all these guns when you don't have night vision so i actually talked to john the president.
The other day and i told him that i'd be doing this video and he told me just to go ahead and put his cell phone number below in the comments so you could give him a call just whenever you call ask for the black scout survival guys set up and he can hook you up with that you can get the jr the 24.
All those sort of things the gen 3 white phosphor he'll hook go with the same setup as i've gotten and also the atp il so his cell phones below i definitely suggest if you don't have night vision go ahead and get it you know with uncertain times i don't think it's you know something we need to be playing.
Around with it's better to have it than not anyhow guys if you have any questions comments if any questions about night vision call john just ask him uh he's he's a got a lot of knowledge and he'll help you out but uh anyhow guys hope you enjoyed this video and as always thanks for watching black.
