If you are not training with night vision, you will not be effective against the Deep State when war breaks out. Do you know what a NOD looks like? A DBAL? An illuminator? You may walk right by some equipment on the battlefield that may save the lives of your people.
I have heard all of the excuses why people will not come out for night vision training except that they have to wash and dry their hair. I will never forget the passage in 299 Days when the resistance finally attacked the government forces. The main protagonist remembered all of the firearms and superfluous accessories that they had bought but he wished that they had bought night vision instead. You can read the book series to understand why this was a necessity.
If you are going to fight for freedom, this may not be the first step but it is a necessary step to survive and win.
