    I had a play with one at a show in Jan and was amazed at the size and price, performance is about the same as the flir scout 24, build quality is very good. I would see if you can test one first to see if it suits your needs.

    All flir are at 7 hertz or maybe 9. Sorry can't remember. Ok if the object is not moving. You need one at min 25 hertz if your foxing or if subject is moving. Damn those Itar regulations.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Yes i think someone mentioned 30hz is the way to go ,the new mini rimfire sight at Scott C is rated at 30 hz but its near 700 and looks as big as a pencil.Was looking for something to spot foxes in the distance before lamping ,cant really run to a full Thermal scope ,my car cost half that TBH .Thanks for the heads up il have to get to a couple of shows and have a look see.ITAR sucks ,had a ifra red/starlight scope from the U/S about 10 years ago for buttons awesome kit but when it "died" couldnt replace as they are no longer allowed to export .Atb

    Can anyone confirm what their actual effective range might be? I know what the blurb says but I'm after real world experience. I'm thinking for spotting mainly munty size animals in woodland cover for example..... I appreciate they're not X-ray machines and can't see through stuff but just after a practical report from someone using one in a similar context.
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Tozzy , In would have a look for a secondhand pulsar -the prices of the older model seem to be falling as everyone rushes to buy the latest and they are in a different league compared to the flir, if you want a play with mine just give me a shout . Atb Chris
