I'm really interested but know nothing about them. Educate me

Which are better?

Gun scope or spotting scope?

Are they worth the $?

Are they legal to hunt with?

I can answer the last question. It is illegal to hunt with thermals or ir in TN. You'll need to head down to Texas for that. 

Actual scopes for rifles are super expensive but there are several handheld units out there that are a little more reasonable. I've got a little handheld FLIR that I enjoy playing with. It makes going for walks after dark a lot of fun. 

Is it worth the money? Your call, but the prices have come down quite a bit recently. The FLIR Scout TK is going for around $600. Handheld unit with only a 100 yard range but if you've got the coin to spare....
