Night Vision

I have a friend who he and his neighbors are having a serious hog issue. He's looking into NV and I'm not up to speed on what's out there.
His concern is muzzle flash for obvious reasons off of a NV scope. He'd like to not end up physically blind.

I've got a few weapons that can take care of that but if you wanted to go with a NV scope - I know there are different stages - what do you look for?

Thanks for any answers in advanced!!!

The higher the Generation (Gen) number is newer/better. As far as muzzle flash goes most of the new ones have a light sensor that will shut it off temporarily so it doesn't blind you. Think of a newer welding helmet with auto darken. Basically same principal. I think really it depends on how much you want to spend.

I don't know what your budget is, but if its a big number, you should check out thermal scopes.

The PVS-14 is commercially available, around $1200 I think. When adjusted and worn/used properly it's really nice. No worry on muzzle flashes interfering. Low light? Buy a couple IR chem lights and drop them around the property at dusk, place will look awesome through the NV.
