    I just got my first set of NVGs last Monday.

    I jumped on the NGI/DTNVG set that TNVC introduced in July. The spec isn't out of the world but for my first set and being $3K less than their premier tube set I am happy. EBI is solid and there is only one blem that I can see an it's all the way on the outer perimeter. I really dig the ActInBlack housing. Shot about 100 rounds Sunday night and it was a lot of fun.

    I considered duel PVS14s but it would have been the same price [if not a little more], heavier and less flexible.

    I considered a single PVS14 and maybe buying a second down the road but I wanted the tubes to be at least similar in performance. I was worried about getting headaches if one tube is far different from another. Not sure if this is a real problem or me just overthinking it. Then there is the "buy once cry ones" mentality.

    Honestly, I think a single PVS14 would work for my needs just as well, Im not LEO or MIL, just an Architect trying to have fun. I think that would apply to most people.

    If I am ever in a situation where I need one eye without a tube in front of it, I can just rotate one of the tubes up and it automatically turns off.

    I have a L3 and ITT pinnacle PVS-14 gen3. Will always have the L3 zero blems. But for what it is there should be zero blems.

    my new lady and I have only ever worn NVGs in Iraq and Afghanistan mainly and they were PVS14s. No training issue there but she is trying to steal my peq15. I always tell her buy your own Marine stop stealing the Army's stuff.

    I sold everything NVG last year with plans to upgrade and actually got most of what I spent back which was great. I am now mentally and physically preparing myself to deal with the load of shit I am going to be in when the wife finds out how much all the new gear is going to cost. She's gotten really good at searching online for what I buy in order to call BS on what I tell her it cost, LOL...

    The key is to have a tote in the garage, separate business that takes little time for moderate returns, and a separate bank account that only flows to business expenses, gun stuff as business expenses if you can find a way to legitimize this, and a self-directed IRA to surprise her with in 15 years.
