    New on this forum, first time on a forum at all actually. So please tell me the rules give me tips. Anyway, I’ve been looking to buy a Pulsar Apex XQ38, where can I find one? Is there anything new out that contests the XQ38 I should read more about (March2018)? The ATN brand seems to lack quality control. The Armasight doesn’t match up in comparison. I’ve never felt or seen any IR in person besides when I was in the Navy (so older gear with high price tags). I’m currently backpacking Asia so can’t get my hands on one but want to buy one for when I get back stateside. What models should I look into? Who should I buy from? Links help because I’m not so good at navigating websites on my phone. I’ll use it for a range of hunting mostly on my homestead stateside and will likely put it on a sig 716. Thanks for any help! Good meeting everyone!

    Welcome to the forum, there are a variety of threads discussing your questions, review them then contact when you get to the US, most thermals are on backorder at this time.

    Welcome, you should look up Brian Shaffer or HdFireman...they do good job of breaking down the different models, their specs, and accessories....

    GM check out this facebook page there are close to 20k members and you will see a broad array of opinions from owners of said thermals plus every other night time gadget known to man who use them every day. Awesome wealth of info it's crazy. Really if you just subscribe to it and watch it for a few days it could likely answer any question you've come across and several you haven't the place is crazy active. It's run by a member of this forum as well Myron Morrow of Night Vision Outfitters. He also does giveaways on thermals, mounts and various other fun toys! Super good guy have hunted with him a couple of times and he has treated all my buds great including myself with everything. Have fun on the trip sounds great.

    Welcome to the forum. There is a lot of things to consider when purchasing a thermal so when you get back give me a call.
    Thanks,
