Night Vision for preppers: Own the night and see bad things before they can see you. These are the phrases often used to describe the technology for tactical applications. And it's an enticing premise.
Who wouldn't want the advantage and superpower of seeing in the dark? It would be a game changer should polite society ever skid out of control.
But many preppers end up with sticker shock as soon as they begin investigating night vision. And is seemingly creates a perceived need out of reach for most.
And most preppers don't stop to ask if night vision makes sense. It could easily become an expensive toy that sits in a drawer only to be occasionally played with and never pressed into services as a life-saving tool.
So this brings up the question: How do you decide if night vision for preppers makes sense? And what generation is even worth the investment? And then there's thermal. The mind swirls with indecisiveness.
We'll clear this up.

In this episode, we’re joined by Josh to discuss traveling with guns and knives. He’s a long-time private security professional who has been all over the world.
Traveling with guns can be a tricky subject, and so can knives. However, it’s not as difficult as you may think. It’s often rather easy, in fact.
But it’s extremely important to understand the laws of all the areas you’re traveling through. Sometimes cities have stricter laws than the states they’re in. And sometimes they’re the same. It’s your responsibility to know what’s what; ignorance of the law is not a defense.
There are also better sources to get your information from than others. So you have to be careful to ensure the information on gun and knife laws you’re getting is up to date and accurate.
This is a summer short episode that turned into nearly a full-length episode. Josh is a long-time friend of the show, and we decided to fulfill an Armada member request for a drunk episode. You’ve been warned: This episode was recorded intoxicated, at 1 AM, and then released without editing.
