    FLIR Thermal Vision Gear

    Thought I'd show everyone a new toy I have coming - these were talked about a few months ago

    FLIR Scout PS Series - Thermal Vision

    Detection range of a man sized object is 315m to 450m for the PS series - other models will do up to 2.5k's!!

    I have the PS32 model myself - I also demo this unit as well

    They start at $3499 - could do a bulk deal too

    Anyone wanting a demo - let me know

    Wow! Want. How much for the 2.5k model? That's a poachers dream right there. Can it be attached to a gun and used like a scope?

    or a poachers nightmare - try hiding from that -

    The TS-32r is 9699 - 1,450m
    for the Bi-oculars BTS - XR - $15,998 - 2,450m - this one has different lens - the 100mm model is the long range - also a 35mm and 65mm - the 65mm is $11,998 - and 1,900m

    They aren't mountable to a gun though

    I had a play with one when was in the US. 30hz version IIRC.
    It was good, however I couldn't/wouldn't buy a lower refresh one.
    Same with NV. Once you've had a play with good Gen 3 stuff the rest is just urrggg

    Certainly a difference from $3,500 to 12,000 + models; comes to what is practical for your usage

    If wondering try one; i'm collecting names for a demo

    Found this on you tube, not sure of the models

    Great bits of kit and I would like to have one.
    But I reckon hunting is just turning into a huge techno game these days. Electronic callers, LR shooting, thermal and NV, trail cameras, feeders, and GPS.
    Poor friggin animals have no chance. One of my all time pet hates, is a game caller, of any sort.

    If ya cant roar, squeak or mew, IMO, you aint a hunters asshole. If ya cant blow a caller you are not a bird hunter either.
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    Had a TIG-7 60hz Set of Thermal goggles here a while ago and have to say wasn`t impressed with thermal over Night vision and hand held would be an inconveniance.Set was for Coastguard and over $15K, Great for their situation but for hunting Id pass it over.
    If you look at the pictures carfuly you will see the animals still have to be clearly seen to be Identified. How many of you thought the first picture was of Pigs and not Cattle until you read the caption.
    The 2 guys I know who bought Thermal for hunting got rid of it pretty quick and replaced it with Night Vision Goggles.
    Just my 2 cents worth but I am pretty experianced with this sort of equipment.
