    I need a thermal imaging scope for my BAR 7mm to shoot hogs and predators with. I'm 15 so I don't make much money nothing close to 10,000$ to get a good quality scope. I own a night vision scope but it doesn't make the animals stick out like thermal imaging. Im friends with a guy that works for Jager pro but I cant see spending 10,000 on a scope. If anyone knows of any cheap high quality thermal imaging scopes under 1,000 please let me know.
    Thanks.

    I do not think you could find a decent one for under $1000 or a high quality one for under 10K. They might be illegal for hunting as well(or even having on a gun depending on which state you are from) . (I'm not sure about this, check your local and state laws)

    Alpha1Victor... I never play video games. I'm not a Yankee. I'd much rather be in the woods then in the house.

    It's legal to hunt hogs here at night and that's going to be my primary use for the scope. Are ATNs any good?

    Im not trying to be rude but... You really have no use for a thermal imaging scope. At most, maybe night vision. Thermal just isnt practical for your application. If you feel you cant live without a thermal scope, your looking at a minimum of $4800 used.

    I used a big arse spot light i hold with left hand and n sturdy the rifle with right and squeeze off n n thru my .243 scope at night i can shoot just as good in the day. There are scope mount green/red lights. Night vision is awesome but exspensive allows a silowhet of the object so you have somethin to hit. Never had a thermal or used one but seen one in use if you got the money and saiga .308 to mount it on the critters you hunt are done for! That my opinion Good hunting and God bless!! Out
