Cheap Night Vision goggles and monoculars

Here we go…

Why do we buy night vision goggles or mounted night vision monoculars?  We buy them so we can move and shoot in the dark.  You can’t use a riflescope in this set up but you can use red dot sights, night vision sights, and night sights.  So how can we do this affordably?

Here are some picks with solid reviews for $500 or less!
