Damn you cqbr.... I actually watched that whole video, ha ha ha. And also I take it you are on the opposing side of green? Either way should be a good time.
So I know my cheapie ones won't have all these cool filters and what not. I just think it would be fun to have some for the game when I get the chance to use them. And for future games that are going to be along the same lines. Im not a prepper but the guy who runs the sight said that has helped bring down the cost of even the cheap ones because every ones after a pair. makes me laugh but at the same time Im sure I will find a excuse to use them around the house.
Ogre strobes will have very little effect on anyone using gen 2+ Or gen 3 nvgs like myself. There is this nifty feature called autogate that keeps my nods from white-washing. Your strobe function just makes you a much easier target to engage when trying to counter these devices. And if your even more high speed like some of us you would have purchased a laser light interference filter as we'll to keep those pesky lasers from burning up our very expensive image tubes. So please if you can try not to point lasers or flashlights intentionally in the face or eyes of anyone especially those using nods as this could cause a potentially unsafe situation and not to mention possible property damage if it was deemed malicious and purposeful.
While I'm not sure about anyone wanting to try and purposely damage anyone's NVG system, you can rest assured I'll have at least a 250 lumen torch on my gat blaster. The easiest way to defeat those pesky buggers that went out and spent thousands on Night Vision Systems for airsoft is to eliminate the need for them, by lighting up the room. If I come into a room and tap you with my system and it causes any damage to your tubes, I'm not financially responsible for that. You choose to bring it out, accept the risk. If I bring out an EoTech 553 and you shoot the glass out of it I can't cry because it was real steel and cost hundreds of dollars. I accept that risk by bringing it to a place where both projectiles and bright lights are going to be commonplace.
What I do know from many bored nights out in the field and on deployments having to use nothing but a PVS-14 system for a few nights in a row is that when exposed to any serious bright light, your actual nightvision is going to be screwed for at least 15 minutes. Regardless of whether or not your tube will recover, your natural night vision is going to be toasted.
Finally, a protip to the green dudes: Sometimes your "uncracked" chemlights have small pockets that have been activated. This is going to be enhanced quite significantly for those running nods. Advice is leave chemlights in pouches that are 100% lightproof. If you're unsure then crack a chemlight and place it in the pouch, and go into a dark room and wait 20 minutes for your night vision to adapt. If you can seen even a glint of it, NVG dudes are gonna see a lot more.
Gunslinger you might as well bring them out with you. The least you can do is give em a try, and I can't think of a better place to do it at. Just makesure to make or purchase some lexan shields for your eyepiece and front glass, to protect your investment from bb's to the best of your ability.
Yeah I was going to cannobalize some scope covers and see how they hold up. Who knows if they will come in handy or not. After all airsoft is 90% show and 3.5% go, I'm not sure what the other missing percent is for...
