CruiserTwelve: The_Sponge: It's the same price as a legal full auto, no big deal....but the gun grabbers will still get their panties in a wad.

What the heck is a "gun grabber?"

Flint Ironstag: I've got one of these. Six men came to take me, the best of em had it. I took it off him. I call it Vera.


/It works in a vacuum as well...


Negative. Vera had to get dressed up to get taken out.

It doesn't do you a whole lotta good if you make some incorrect assumptions in the process of target acquisition.

I recall being a 16 year old dumb fark on my high school's rifle team (without benefit of glasses) and carefully ploinking my allocated 10 rounds in to the next guy's target.

So now every long-range hunting rifle is a "sniper rifle", every semi-automatic rifle is an "assault rifle"... What scary name are we going to start calling shotguns?

I'm pretty sure it doesn't work for everyone.
BTW, what's up with the hipster holding a gun like a gangster? There's like 3 competing stereotypes here.

cantsleep: The fun of shooting is the difficulty , I personally would not want this gun.


Yep.

Hell, I made it *MORE* difficult for myself by switching from a scoped bolt action .30'06 to a flintlock long rifle, and from a tricked-out compound bow to a bare wooden bow that used to be a hickory tree in my father's back yard. It was just getting too easy for me, and because I'm not much of a trophy guy, instead of upping the difficulty by going for bigger and bigger trophies, I went with more primitive methods.

I get fewer deer, but I have more fun doing it.

The implements in question:

AccuJack: Hmmm... wonder if it's hackable?

Replace the stock with a servo pan/tilt mount on a tripod with accelerometer ground sensing to compensate for vibrations, use a basic computer vision app to handle the "move the crosshair to the red dot" part, and a solenoid to pull the trigger.

Load up the included app, put the red dot where you want the bullet to go, and let the rifle do the rest.

/Can see the CSI episode now: "His rifle shot the city official, but we suspect his iPad was hacked and used by someone else. We'll retroactively activate the camera to see who it is, then use the tracking app to find his current location!"


If you use Apple Maps for the targeting, you could hit the other side of the world. Just not who you were aiming for.

An invention of brilliant salespeople

THIS. So much this.

Gun purchases down? Need a way to boost ammunition sales since all that 5.56 is vastly overpriced on account of the Government buying it all up? A little fear-mongering and we're back in business, baby!


Obama's been the best gun salesman this country has ever seen.

The timing of the advanced rifle has been questioned, especially coming just one month after the massacre of 20 children and six staff members by a crazed gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Uh huh, because precision shooting to 1000 yards and shooting point blank in a frenzy are pretty much the same.

I say, dear Mr Wright, should you really be mucking about with flight so soon after the Titanic sunk? There are children to think of!

/yeah, I know, wrong order, and 6 years difference.

Big deal. Drawback is that you can't see the guy running up your side with the knife out.

I need this for hunting.  I don't hunt, nor do I shoot recreationally, so I really think it would help.  I wonder if I could retrofit it to help my golf game.
