If you want to see the ultimate in night time pest shooting just go to m4carbine.net and search for a thread by SkyPup. He shoots coyotes and hogs for hire and on his own property using night vision, laser, illuminators and FLIR. He is taking them at typically out to 175 yds or more. Very serious set up and amazingly effective.
