    Yes-ish. If using them in-line with the aid then you really need either the dual-illum (ACOG/RMR), or an RDS that has adjustable brightness other wise it can be over-powering to the aid. If using it as I referenced then yes any will work, I still prefer an adjustable that I can turn down in the dark so it doesn't trash my night vision in my unaided eye, otherwise it can leave a spot in your shooting eye that your natural night vision will need to recover from.

    IANative: Indeed, when you grab Brent (or he grabs you), it feels like liquid unobtanium wrapped in rawhide... whereas Greg is just solid muscle wrapped in hate, seasoned w/ snuff and a little lead.

    I've been doing this. I find it very similar to the Bindon aiming concept on VCOGS. I "shift" from one eye to the other. I have the NV on a skull crusher and the thermal on a lanyard and hold it with my non shooting hand.

    Hmmmm. Now THAT is a clever idea.

    I'll post a picture of the setup this evening. I was a little worried about posting as it sounds bonkers until you try it. Your brain does stitch together the two images and also let you flip between them.

    My context is shooting rats/mice at night on my property, so this is not under the pressure of a pray that can hurt me. I've not engaged anything at distance. I could see a pack of three coyotes at about 200 yards on the thermal in bushes but they were invisible to the NV. By the time I moved closer they were gone.
