The 10th Mountain we are not. Basically we will be defensive militia defending a homestead 16 to 60 men and women. Some ex military but most civilians. We will have some prepared defensive positions and probably we will be responding to a suprise attack. Fully outfitted battle packs and humping 100 pounds of gear are not in the picture. We will not all be in a central bunker so handing around gear would not be easy.
Improvision, adaptation, and overcoming will be the order of the day in times as described/envisioned. But is SHALL be done.:thumb:

Being a small family group equipping everyone is a major financial commitment. Costs are multiplied by the number. Optics are an area that we want to outfit everyone we field but the expense can be restrictive.
Binoculars are an item that we want to have everyone carrying to have available. We have a couple of pair of top line ones but have looked at the idea better to have more eyes that one set. We are set up in two person teams one with a full power semi-auto military service rifle and the other with a semi- auto military style carbine. We are trying to equip each team with a standard size set of binoculars in the 7 to 8x range. We have found a couple of pair at yard sales and thrift stores Tasco, Bushnell brand for under $20. A couple of pairs of Vivitar 7x50 economy brands that will fill in till something better is available.
We also have been aquiring some of those pocket size binoculars 4x30 Bushnell's and folding Tascos 8x21 at about $20 a pair.
True these do not have the clairity or low light enhancing abilities of a Zeiss or Lyman but are a major advantage over nothing.
Well I have a scope on my rifle? You may say. Binoculars are not as visable as a rifle sticking out of a bush and have wider fields of view than scopes.
A good guide for binoculars can be found at REI.com use the wildlife observing or bird watching reviews.
Alot of variables in this arena brother.:thumb: Several different pair are in order depending of the use required for a particular location especially either urban or out in the wilderness.:thumb:
