Black Rifles & Green Eyes | Night Vision History & Evolution | No Lowballers Podcast Episode 21
Length: 29 Minutes
On today’s show with GunBroker.com, we’re talking black rifles and green eyes, otherwise known as night vision. We start out talking about the first true generation of night vision – the starlight scope. Usually used in special purpose missions, they looked like a giant spotlight and mounted generally on an M1 Carbine. Thankfully, we’ve made huge advancements through today’s 3rd generation night vision. Make sure to listen in to this episode brought to you by GunBroker.com, to hear an in-depth conversation on night vision and thermal optics!
Next, we dive into night vision hunting which has skyrocketed in popularity for game like wild hogs. Make sure you check into your local game laws however, because this isn’t legal everywhere and there are some rules you need to make sure you follow. We also dive into the difference between green and white phosphor, which have major differences between them. White phosphor provides a large jump in optics with visuals being way more crisp compared to green phosphor. We also discuss the differences between night vision and thermal optics. Night vision optics absolutely cannot be used during the daytime due to how they process light, but thermals absolutely can be used during the daytime. However, your image will certainly not have as much clarity on your targets if the temperature differences aren’t as high like during the nighttime. A huge use case for thermal optics is in the recovery of game animals. Thermal optics provide terrific blood tracking capabilities that can help provide trackers with fantastic recovery efforts, including seeing the downed animal.
One of the downfalls of night vision is that depth perception gets thrown off quickly. However, with that being said, a lot of that can be trained out with serious training time and as always, it’s way better to have night vision if your enemies do not! Closing out, Allen dives into the different options for night vision at GunBroker.com. He covers a multitude of different options from the cheap end to however much you’d like to spend, there are options out there for you whether you want to outfit your helmet or your firearm.

Ep54 – Firearms and Timepieces Coming Together with Glock Watches, Jim Imhof | Pearls of Wisdom
Length: 16 Minutes
Joining us in this special episode of Chatting with Chuck is Jim Imhof, the Sales Director for Glock Watches. He will share the extraordinary fusion of two worlds you might never have imagined—the world of firearms and watches. Jim brings a wealth of experience, having spent 45 years in the watch business, including stints with brands like Boulevard, Citizen, and Seiko. For the past decade, he’s been an integral part of Bearing Watches, a company with a 14-year history. In this episode, we discuss the remarkable history of Bearing Watches, their commitment to quality, and the influence of their owner, Michael Witt. You’ll discover that Glock’s entry into watch manufacturing is a dedication to upholding Glock’s rigorous standards, just as they do with their firearms. They’re designed to withstand wear and tear, which makes them a smart choice for those who demand the best. Initially, Bearing Watches primarily catered to a female audience, but they have expanded their offerings and have 700 active accounts in the US. So, how did Bearing Watches and Glock Watches come together? The Glock family, with its roots in the jewelry business, sought to create special project watches. When the task proved challenging, Michael Witt was called upon for his expertise, and thus, the partnership began. Glock watches offer a range of movements, including Swiss-made Rhonda movements, Seiko automatic movements, and solar movements. Jim reveals that all these Glock watches are set to hit the market soon, and it already has a substantial network of accounts lined up, including independent owner-operators. If you’re interested in exploring the opportunity to become a prospective retailer, sales representative, or ambassador, tune in now and discover more about Glock Watches from Jim Imof here.
