I’m extremely excited to bring Pulsar on board and this is one of the more exciting products out there to me.  Many states allow predator hunting and hog hunting at night and I can’t think of a better way to thin out the yote population than taking their eyesight out of the equation.  The detection range of these scopes is amazing, and the ease of sight in is a great feature that will have you up and running in no time.

A lot of people struggle with the streaming app.  I have used it without major issues, but it will start to lag on occasion and I’ve always had luck by jumping out of the view mode and back in so it has been useable for me.  Thermal optics are an absolute blast to use and they can be an effective tool day or night depending on conditions.  There is a learning curve to get the most out of thermal optics in various conditions by using the settings.  

Since you are effectively blind at night without the thermal, it is far better to keep the scope at its lowest power setting to get the widest field of view possible.  The picture in picture magnified mode is a nice way to allow finer aiming while still having the benefit of the wide field of view.

These are really hot items and are rarely in stock anywhere, so if you want to take the leap into thermal, I think the Thermion scopes offer a tremendous blend of performance and functionality combined with a traditional form factor that mounts with standard 30 mm rings you likely already own.  We may set some of these up to rent with rings already installed for picatinny rail mounting if there is enough interest, so send us an email to sales@rgunsngear.com & let us know if you are interested in renting.
