You are right, and I misspoke. But being the person I am, I'll send another one to Shawn! All he has to do is, send me a PM with his shipping address.

I've been playing around with this and I am impressed with the set up. Picture is pretty good and the night vision is kinda cool. Works really well in my dark basement, waiting for it to get dark enough out side to see how far it works.

Night hunting can be addictive.

I like to hunt in darkness, if for no there reason than the technology requirements. But aside from that, it is either a bit too late, or a bit too early for my physique! (Read that as age related!) I do have a decent night vision scope, but if you do a lot of night hunting, it doesn't take long before you yearn for more—technology! What interested me with this "DIY" kit, was (is) just how simple the technology has become. Of course, it is not a $12 Grand FLIR, but for air gunning, it is just A-OK. Fact is, it's good enough for just about any airgun activity, which amazes me. And for under $200!

I'm looking forward to both you guys' report on same.

OK got mine today. Point me in the right direction for batteries and charger. I was hoping Amazon would show some decent ones at a good price but man it gets crazy with the reviews.

I bought mine at a place called Rex Batteries, it is a place that sells,recycles and builds batteries. Check a battery store, if they don't have them they can probably order them or at least point you in the right direction.
I had mine out in the dark this morning and could easily see about 100+ yards. It was a little grainy but I think if I played with the camera focus and scope it could have been better. At 40 or 50 yards I could make out the detail and texture of leaves and see small insect flying aroud very clearly. I gotta say I am really impressed by the picture quality.
I tried the accuracy out Saturday, put the cross hair on a HOSP at 40 yards and can you say DECAPITATED? I know, I forgot to take a picture so it didn't happen, but it did. .25 Polymags are nasty!

I got these. Be here Wednesday.

I have to machine a scope ring down to fit  in between the actual scope ring and the turret. The bug buster does not have a lot of room to place accessories.

Ok so I get my batteries, charged them up and go outside to test it out. Just my luck. There stands a possum and I didn't bring any pellets with me. I mean 5 seconds of looking around and my first target and no freaking ammo. I ran inside grabbed pellets and go back outside and no freaking possum.
Anyways it works.
Thanks Alan
