I have one of these for use on any picatinny rail/adapter. Most creatures are unable to see the red light spectrum but can see itís brightness. Itís very tiny and compact but very bright.
Can someone try to explain this to me please? I've seen it a bunch recently, and I can't quite figure out what this is trying to say. I understand the not seeing red part (I'm red/green colorblind so find optics interesting) , but I can't figure out what you mean by "but they *can* see it's brightness"? I thought only *we* see the brightness and they have no idea...
My understanding of the red light thing was always that the pest can't see that red part of the light spectrum, so it doesn't even know it's being illuminated.
So for an example of what I thought was happening:
The Predator is hunting you at night in thick canopy jungle. It's pitch black and you can't see anything at all, but the Predator can see you just fine. You are "illuminated" to the Predator, because you're still reflecting the UV or infrared portion of the light spectrum that the Predator can see just fine.
Thanks for the help with an explanation guys....oh shoot, I forgot to mention one other important detail.....When the Predator is hunting you, your only weapon is your very 1st airgun, but it has a really cool bayonet....
