Recently James Sutcliffe from BASC Deer Management put the new FLIR Breach thermal imager though it's paces. The BASC Game and Deer team promotes sustainable deer management across the UK by providing advice to members on habitat and species management, developing and supporting best practice, offering deer stalking opportunities and influencing government policy in order to protect shooting.
The FLIR Breach PTQ136 is a tactical thermal imaging monocular built for the rigors of tactical deployment and law enforcement, allowing the operator to spot the heat of living objects and terrain in total darkness, even when traditional optics such as day scopes, night vision etc are impeded by adverse weather conditions, grass foliage etc.
By Graham Allen – Gun Mart. When I used to shoot Field Target (FT) competitions many years ago, I was always drawn to high magnification scopes, as this type of optic is vital to be able to tell the distance to the target. The magnification of FT scopes seemed to have peaked at a whopping x80 mag but who knows what mega optics competitors will be using in the future?
