  1. Its a nice commercial, but I wouldn’t using it the way it was shown because I don’t want the bad guy to see me coming. Yes I would use it when engaging the target, but for the search, I’d use night vision or FLIR. Light and lasers are excellent tools, but like any tool it has its specific purpose. Using the wrong tool for the job usually results in injury.

  2. Absolutely, but you can’t just have it, you need to train with it because it takes a lot of getting use to. I recommend a PVS-14 for doing what was in the commercial, but they are big bucks and so is the FLIR. With that said you can get into the ATN scopes at around $500. While being bigger and heavier they will get the job done, but likely too much tunnel vision for clearing rooms.

  3. I would rather the playing field be level (darkness for both parties) than the telegraphing of presence and position displayed here. (First and foremost, this is a commercial for flash lights)

    That said there are thermal detectors available for the same price of some hi-end flash lights ($119) and new Spark CORE NV Gen 2+ for about $400. No reason not to have it, if you have everything else covered and are paying $500 for a case of ammo. Much better to have NV and be able to see where the ammo you already have is going.
