A friend is looking for a pair of Night Vision goggles to use for paintball - looking in the $200 range, anyone have a good source for these? Thanks!

Lots of decent Soviet/ComBloc stuff floating around on the market these days, but I doubt you'll find much for only $200. Cabela's seems to have a fair supply of NV and of course, being Cabela's he shouldn't have any warranty issues. If your friend likes to tinker, I have a spare set of NVG I'm not sure what to do with. I know nothing about this particular set (Fero-52-ZUB) and don't even know if they work since I can't seem to find out anything about them. (3 volts may not be enough to power them up.) If your interested you can contact me off-list, otherwise, I'll just hang on to them for future trading material.

The cheap stuff is junk. The good stuff (third and fourth generation) is way expensive.
