I just think that the financial resources people have could be better spent on things that provide a more tangible and reliable benefit: Food, Water, Energy, Shelter, Guns & Ammo
Those things you will ALWAYS need, the optics may or may not be beneficial. That means that by investing in this optics stuff you are taking a gamble. Survivalists shouldn't be taking gambles.

i was looking at what hopsitals do now for sheilding for mri machines and their rooms
basically take the batteries out and sheild them the same way a person does for other radios.
sheilding is not impossible but too much disinfo exists on the internet now as to the uses for shtf or wrol
moving in daylight makes one an easy target however when someone moves at night they have that cover and concealment from all those people who say meh who needs nightvsion.
