Who actually owns NVGs?

Is there any use for these other than larping? I've got the money, they seem cool, but I can't justify it. What can you do with these other than make youtube videos and take pictures for Instagram?

        >I've got the money
        I assumed you meant that you were established with enough disposable income for the purchase not to be a pain point. If you don't already own a house and a car with, idk, >$10k sitting in the bank, then you probably shouldn't buy night vision.

          10k isn't making you money if it's in the bank anon. They are tools useful for facilitating purchases but they are otherwise con men you should never allow to hold your money for you.

            I have 30k sitting in my savings, which is almost 3/4 of my salary, and I'm not even 30. What the frick do I do with it? I live incredibly within my means, I don't smoke cigarettes or drink booze, I don't go out to eat or pay for porn or any of that kind of shit that whittles down zoomer and millenial savings. I pay cheap rent to a family friend and won't be moving out any time soon because I don't give a shit about women or status, my vehicle is a company car so I don't pay for gas or insurance or maintenance. I've been stuck in a rut since before the pandemic but have just been hoarding money since.

              You need to to 3 quick, safe things to divide up your money and make it start working for you:
              1) Easiest step. Figure out what amount of $ you want on hand for emergencies. If you're single, don't own a home, and maybe have a car and live in the US where medical bills can be an issue set aside around $5000-$10000 in your local bank's savings account. This is your easy-access always ready emergency fund.
              2) Start a Roth IRA with someone like Fidelity. There's no startup fees. Go ahead and max out your 2023 contribution. That's $6,500. Distribute it amongst various Fidelity-managed mutual funds. I suggest FNCMX, FXAIX, FLGEX, and FXNAX if you want bonds. You manage your own risk, so invest in which funds you feel most comfortable with. For example, if you don't trust big tech, then don't invest in the FNCMX Nasdaq fund. If you trust big tech, invest more into it than others, etc.
              3) Put the rest of your money in a high-yield savings account. Look into Lending Club, SoFi, Ally. These accounts are going to have an APY around 4.5% or better vs the .001% you'll earn in your local Wells Fargo savings account.

              Ideally you'll do something like this:
              >$7500 emergency fund
              >$6500 into 2023 ROTH IRA
              >$16000 into High yield savings

              From there just let your money begin to grow. Every year from now on, max out your Roth contribution, and continue to deposit into your high yield savings. You'll be so far ahead by the time you reach 30 you'll have friends coming to you for investment advice.

            This is why you have $30k in the bank and having a enough cash liquidity to take advantage of an opportunity when it comes along is very smart. Keep saving, at least until you have enough to pay cash for your first house. You'll be miles ahead of everyone by the time you're 35. Just don't forget to enjoy life.

        sometimes my single, sometimes my twin. the concern is single engine at night. if your engine goes out you are rolling the dice when you reach the ground. landing in trees is pretty much a death sentence, so I was hoping to be able to spot clearings easy enough to find somewhere to stuff my plane if the engine died. helicopters that do night-ops (like EMS) have integrated illumination and can obviously move more gingerly towards the dirt. the twin isn't a major concern because I can just limp to an airfield somewhere.

A good radio (Motorola, Hytera, Kenwood, Icom) just costs a couple hundred dollars (or more). Chink shit like Ailunce, TYT and Anytone are mediocre at best. If you must, get an 878 as a first radio/beater + it supports dual band and something called promiscuous mode, which few others do. Then get the good stuff. You’ll see what I mean.
