Went through the trouble of taking some pics so might as well put them up here for later reference. The setup is as follows:

>Dark as Fuck basement
>GSCI PVS-14C manual gain 4G Elite Onyx Plus White Phosphor FoM 2300+
>ZenitCo Perst-3 dual visible/IR tactical laser designator with IR illuminator
>ZenitCo Klesh gen.3 2IKS+Laser tactical IR illuminator with IR laser
>a very confused cellphone camera that doesn't have a millionth of the dynamic range required for this particular task even with HDR on

The two devices are pretty different. The Klesh is more of a little WML with a laser, a bit like a Streamlight TLR except there are no visible beamz coming out of it. The Klesh is all IR and is useless if you do not have NODs. The laser can be turned on/off, the light can be turned on/off, there's a strobe mode for giving your NOD an autogating workout.


The Perst is closer to the more common offerings like DBALs, PEQs, and so on. The Perst-3 has a visible laser, IR laser, IR illuminator, power settings can be set independently. The IR illuminator can be focused and has a diffuser cap.

Klesh at full everything. No ability to focus the illum or diffuse the illum unless you made/put something on the lens.
>> No. 18427 ID: 7e6a19
In conclusion, get the klesh if you want something cheap that provides you IR only illumination/laser up to about 300 yards. It's cheaper, smaller, lighter, has less features, has limitations and lacks some versatility. Indoors, you'll have to fiddle with the small buttons to drop power on illumination and laser brightness. Outdoors, you'll struggle to reach out at longer ranges, especially through optics. No visible anything so sighting in has to be done in night vision and the sighting in process is done with allen keys and shit, it's a bit of a pain. Still, the klesh is a fantastic little package on an SBR or PCC if you never expect to really need to extra features of the Perst.

The Perst is a much more standard unit like a PEQ, LAM, MAWL, or DBAL. It's got illumination you can focus for long range outdoor work, and a diffuser cap for very quick and easy indoor flood illumination. Controls are easy to select with a chunky knob, it has a visible laser for sighting in. Much better choice for a proper carbine.

Regardless, if you're in the states I'm not sure why you'd go with these Zenitco things over the aforementioned units. Shipping times from russia are long, I have no idea what the warranty process would be like, and there's some crudeness to the Zenitco stuff. They're a little heavy, and there's various little details about them like how the laser "splashes" and the illumination is a little asymmetrical. PEQ, LAM, DBAL, and MAWL are just a little more refined and for Americans, a much better first choice.

If you're not in the USA, my condolences, get used to cyrillic.

what bugs me the most about the persts besides qc and a sketchy warranty is that the plugs arent crane compatible, so if you wanted to run conventional tape switch offerings from surefire, unity or modlite, you are SOL unless you know how to splice one into the zenitco plug, or just use the klesh.

otherwise, theyre fine considering the prices for both ATPIAL-Cs and full-power PEQ-15s have gone up considerably, with the latter being so expensive now (2400+) that you may as well pony up for a MAWL. or just buy a DBAL-A3 to save yourself some cash and live with a shitty illuminator. cool info nonetheless

its also been a while so i hope i remembered my tripcode, lol

So I've had some more time behind it and NODs and I'm warming up to the Perst compared to some other devices I've tried that weren't full power. I have to admit there's merit to pic related.

Things I've found are good with the Perst
>battery life
>IR laser powaaaaah
>pressure pad dial
>has been rugged/unaffected by cold, snow, rain
>held zero despite being used, bonked, hiked with, bonked on trees in the dark, dropped, etc
>price/performance is gr8

Things I still don't really like
>IR illuminator focus knob should have more range, the focus goes from narrow to "it's practically a laser just by itself"
I admit that such an incredibly tight focus illuminator would be useful at long range, it does make close/mid-range shooting a little weird. You can put a chest-sized spot of blinding IR light on something 200 yards away at like medium focus. At "wide open" focus, the spot light covers a person at 100 yards but not much more. Distances/sizes do get wonky in monocular NV so I'd really have to measure shit but it's a narrow illuminator beam and it only gets narrower. I plan on making a new focus cap/knob. Something with a faster pitch thread to dial quicker, with a lens that goes from "tight beam" to maybe 4 to 6 times the spot illuminator size of the "widest beam" that the stock lens offers.
>IR diffuser cap is a cunt to put on/off
Fucking thing folds in on itself half the time. Fucking piece of shit.

With the full power unit I think the Zenitco pressure pad/dial switch is really useful. I set the pressure pad/dial it on top as the Perst was blocking 3/4 of the optic's FOV when I tried to mount it on top. At 45 degrees I mounted the visible light pressure pad, so going from IR to visible is extremely fast and easy. It does mean the Perst is mounted on the side and the visible light is mounted underneath, but the long handguards mean I have no muzzle shadow. I do need a taller optic mount, it's coming soon, it might simplify shit.

If you're somewhere that gun mufflers are allowed and shadow is an issue, I assume things would get a little more complicated. Not sure how I'd set up the things and pressure pads then, to be honest.

How are you carrying?

Shield .45, 8 +1 with the Hyve extension. Holster is kydex from a company called Invisiholsters, added an Ulticlip clip, and a crux accessory. The crux pushes in the handgun more, making it easier to carry with a longer mag. Hardly prints at all when I bend down, doesn't print at all standing up.

There was a really good thread on this back in the day. Think it was under outdoor/survival sadly. Long thread short, detection was the hardest part. Then followed by maintaining a decontamination/clean room.

Makes me wonder, in this age of worrying about flus, ebola, nuclear metldowns, dirty bombs, etc. (Sorry NSA) Where's our detection equipment? Sure, you can buy a gas mask, even a hazmat suit with it's own air supply. Unless you're intentionally going to expose yourself to danger or attending a rave. How would you know ahead of time to bring, or wear this gear?

Is there anything available to the public to detect these invisible threats?
>> No. 17818 ID: 044fd0

Geiger counters, survey meters and dosimeters are a dime a dozen. The Gamma Scout seems to be quite popular.

As for detecting chemical and biological threats there's probably litmus paper type detectors available but I don't know how useful such a thing would be without protective kit and atropine.

Gas analyzers and tests exist, usually to indicate a GTFO type situation, though usually you are already in mopp before you go in so if you happen to detect exposure, you can protect yourself.

you can commercially buy
>multi gas analyzers
>radiation detection keychains (beep with dangerous levels)
>CBRN detection paper

but unless you dish out big bucks, you wont have passive air monitoring equipment unfortunately

even then, knowing the threat is there and being able to survive it are two different things. even if you are able to escape the immediate effects of the hazard, the damage may be done

another chemical threat that is not often discussed are civil unrest and pacification chemicals, OC spray and CS gas might be a threat if you live in a big city and there happens to be a riot. I like the creativity of south American protesters in their improvised and modified gas masks.
>> No. 18397 ID: 132e8e

I imagine that from a practical standpoint, the best detection feasible for the average Joe would be to live sufficiently far away from the nearest population center to use the denizens as canaries. "Outrunning the bear," etc.

I'm thinking that hoarding camo really lacks a lot of practicality, and would probably rather have a solid "gray man" setup in a SHTF scenario.

I like the idea of using darker tops and lighter bottoms for a general guiding principle of camouflage if needed, but in this case, using muted earth/neutral tones. I live in Seattle, where there's both plenty of concrete as well as green PNW woods, moss, and tall grass in and out of the city. Due to the climate, having something that is water-proof/resistant is pretty important, as well as something I can layer up with and move comfortably in. Something that doesn't scream "tactical", isn't BDU baggy, but serves the functions as such discreetly and effectively as possible.

I'm liking the idea of getting a green Condor Aegis hardshell jacket along with some khaki Condor Cipher pants and just throw on some boots. What do you all think?

Not trying to be an asshole, not trying to be argumentative here, but please hear me out.

I think you may be overthinking this. 95% of the normies don't notice this shit, nor do they know one camo pattern from another if they should happen to notice that someone was wearing a surplus-store M65 field jacket and skinny hipster jeans. Really they don't. And, depending on what part of the country you live in and the time of year, a Mossy Oak camo hoodie and jeans can be more commonplace in line at the supermarket than suits and ties or "business casual." So long as you're not fully Multicam'd out and wearing battle rattle and war paint with an M4 slung over your shoulder, you're highly unlikely to get a second look. Gadsden Flag t-shirts might draw an equal amount of unwelcome attention in some areas. Khakis and a hoodie, or sweater or coat appropriate to the weather, are pretty solid for what OP seems to have in mind. I do not think anybody's going to say "oh shit, he's wearing khakis and a faded brown sweatshirt, he must be some kind of TURRORIST going for an urban-camo effect! Let me dial 91 and then hover my finger over the '1' and wait for him to do something!" Hell, Wal-Mart sells camo hoodies just because some people just like them and wear them for shits and giggles.

Others have already noted that the 21st Century Tarnhelm is fluorescent vest + hard hat + clipboard + acting skills in the unlikely event you are approached.

While grey man is obviously useful, is there any real merit to carrying around 30 pounds of guns and gear at all times? Having previously carried around spare mags, ifaks, and at some points a pistol AR in a pack, I felt like it was more equipment than I actually needed for my average grocery run.

>I think you may be overthinking this. 95% of the normies don't notice this shit, nor do they know one camo pattern from another

the problem with this is that they whole gray man concept is supposed to avoid drawing attention from 100% of people.

So you aren't incredibly impeded when traveling by means of security checkpoints.

Like yeah, I don't think printing is a big deal if there's only teens and soccermoms around sure.
But what says soccermom doesn't flip out and call someone who does have an ability to harass you under guise of law?

What says that remaining 5% isn't a criminal who has knowledge of what to avoid or what to look for?

Anyone who is truly doing the "I'm not tactical" shit should be able to talk to drug dealers as well as cops in the same day without having either of those sides consider you armed.

I know this thread is 6 months old, but if anyone else is looking. Don't buy regular military style boots for proper personal equipment. They suck and will fuck up your feet. Even the "good ones" fucking suck by design. I would kill to be able to switch to a good 8 inch mountain/hunting boot where you can move fast as fuck boi but you wont immediately break your ankle mis stepping with a heavy ruck.

The lowas posted above look nice. I personally use Crispe and an old pair of solomons similiar in style to these lowas.
