TNVC just sent us these photos of a recent range session with the Magnus D790.
They tell us they like to trust, but verify their manufacturer’s claims going on to state, “If we are going to equip guys going into harm’s way, the gear better perform as advertised first time, every time. That said, we present the baddest night vision scope on the block: the Magnus D790. Rated up-to/including .50 BMG and proven by our own field testing.”
Built by Night Optics USA, using L-3 Warrior Systems Filmless Gen3 Image Intensifier Tubes, featuring one of the best high definition lens systems in existence. Available from TNVC, Inc.

Make Ready to Survive: Suburban & City Environment
Suburban & City Environment addresses medium length events like prolonged power outages, snow storms, hurricanes, and other localized damage due to a disaster where food, power and fuel are not readily available. Specific considerations are given for folks living in the city as well as suburban settings. Instructors Paul Howe, Jim Cobb, Kyle Harth, and N.E. MacDougald walk you through the medium term survival budget, bugging in, home security and lockdown, communications, getting from work or play to home during a crisis, advanced first aid, identifying hazards and hazardous areas, quantity and types of food to have on hand, workplace survival gear, and more. Localized rioting and civil unrest, power outages or a natural crisis can be dealt with and managed when you are prepared. We help you to get to that point of being prepared.
A total of 13 videos have been filmed in the Make Ready to Survive series. More info on the series can be found on the Panteao website.
