    Have always wanted a thermal. Such cool things to play with.
    Has anyone here had a play with the sight forward mounted ones, FXQ50?

    Do NOT touch one
    They good hand held's - but not good option for sight/shooting !!

    Go handheld and Maxtoch/Olight
    The optimum would be both hand held and rifle mounted XP's - BUT be you looking 12-14K
    I have a nice XP38 for under 6K if you want :-)

    Can you please expand on why they aren't good for shooting? Is it mainly to do with their lack of magnification? What if mounted on good glass like S&B?
    I see the max recommended magnification to run is 5x for the FXQ50.

    The versatility seems great.

    How much under $6k? Could be tempting.

    They do not hold Zero
    Think about the logistics of how they work
    Everyone I know who has used one says they are not good Re accuracy - good as handheld - but if you want hand held you better off paying less for a XP38 or the likes - otherwise go the full monty with the above Trail XP's
    I was goint to get one until luckily I got talked seriously out of it by a American Forum chap

    I will second those all those comments on the FXQ50 after a week field testing.

    If looking at a thermal hand held, the "new" Pulsar Quantum Lite XQV30 Thermal Imager would be the best option - value for money. This product has been repositioned as an entry level unit with no video and other digital features.
    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.
