At American Family Survival, we like to avoid using fancy terminology, so forgive us for using the term field optics. It’s just that we couldn’t really find a better or more fitting term for a range of devices that comprise common binoculars and spotting scopes. The goal with field optics is remarkably simple and easy to understand – they are devices that let you see things afar as if they were near.
So why do you, the prepper, need such devices? Are they for snooping, bird watching, or recreational shooting? What possible use would you have for field optics in a survival situation? If you haven’t considered field optics thus far, we’re about to tell you that you don’t know what you’re missing. They are that important.
