    Default Night Gun

    BPM AR, Leupold 3X9 VXR Patrol scope, Steiner DBAL A3 Green/IR laser/Illuminator, TNVPVS 14 NOD, YHM Phantom Suppressor. I have an old MICH helmet with an NVG mount to go with the set up. This is my first suppressor and I must say, it's a hell of a lot of fun. Now I need some wild hogs to invade my property.

    Thank you. The DBAL is a good system, light weight and accurate. Combined with the PVS 14, it makes low light shooting a lot of fun.

    I know very little about NV. I assume you are wearing the PVS14 over your left eye (if you are right-handed), for use with the DBAL. How does the scope work alongside that? I realize you'll be using one or the other, but how well do the two systems work when set-up side-by-side like this? Are there ever twilight conditions where you might actually be divided on which sighting system is better? In such a scenario, can you easily switch back and forth between the optic with your right eye and the DBAL with your left? And can you still get a decent cheek rest for the optic with the PVS14 in place? Once you've run this a bit, I'd really like to hear what you think about this design.

    LawDog, my apologies. I missed this for a bit then it got lost in the chaos of retiring from the AF, moving to NM, and starting my new job. I do run the PVS 14 over my left eye mounted on a surplus MICH helmet I acquired somewhere. I can move the NV out of the way to get behind the scope but it is a bit awkward. Generally, once it is dark enough to see the IR I just use the NV or just not put the helmet on until it's too dark to use the optic. My military set up was much easier for transitions.

    I did find out the local range is open after dark so once things settle down I'll get the system out to run a few scenarios and see if I can better answer your questions.
