Night-Vision and Thermal Optics

Black Diamond Optics TH-64L Thermal Riflescope

Whether it’s a thermal riflescope, handheld thermal imaging monocular, night goggles or a digital riflescope, IR/thermal optics are man’s (and woman’s) best friend when navigating the dangers of the dark. Whether it’s in a back alley hunting down a bad guy or on the back forty stalking wild tuskers and other creatures of the night, these high-tech tools even the playing field and ensure a more promising outcome. For tactical operators, thermal imagers are invaluable in locating and identifying targets in emergency situations where normal visibility is reduced, impaired or ineffective. And since thermal imagers don’t project a beam of light, suspects are often unaware they are being monitored and officers can observe potential criminal activity from a safe distance. Thankfully, when the chips are down, well-equipped operators can engage nighttime prowlers with the confidence that they own the night, by using the latest and greatest in night-vision optics. Same goes for hunters who prefer to work the graveyard shift. By using thermal and IR optics, they can take back the night and gain an edge over their nocturnal adversaries. And that’s where you, the savvy tactical retailer comes in — by arming your customers with the latest and greatest night-vision and thermal makes and models. Be sure you’re not in the dark when they visit your store or website looking for nighttime optics. Here’s an assortment that’s sure to pique their interest.
