    Yep, lots of opinions!
    I'll let folks who know more than I chime in on their preferences.
    I was interviewing for a job decades ago for a position doing systems design with 4-bit microprocessors (that should tell some folks how old I am …) and the guy conducting the interview mentioned that one of his team members had done designs for something like 13 or 14 microwave controllers for various customers. I expressed surprise that there could be so many differences in microwaves, that once you've done a couple they should all be the same.
    The manager responded "It has been my experience that if you assemble a committee of N persons to resolve an issue, you typically end up with N+1 opinions!"
    Get ready to hear some different opinions on thermal weapon sights. No one is wrong, you just have to understand their reasoning.

    Oh, and WELCOME !!

    Welcome to the forums. Buying thermal can be a beating because of all the info and opinions out there. If you need any help give me a call.
