Dimensio: I suspect that few hunters will be willing to spend $17,000 for a hunting tool.


You don't know very many hunters, do you? The majority are all about flash and expense. Trail cams, scents, clothing, knives, ATVs, Trucks, etc....

If you can convince them that it will up their chances of getting that "big buck" by 0.1%, then they will buy it. The dumb ones at least.

/I respect hunting, but man have I come across some dumb hunters.

treesloth: whosits_112: Pfft, call me when he jumps on it and kills it with his bare hands.

xkillyourfacex: So what happens when you send snipers to combat with these weapons, which since they are auto correcting, did not require much training on part of the sniper... and the scope or computer is somehow damaged? How will the untrained sniper compensate to be an asset?

Well, you could also train your snipers. I mean, I know that's an inconceivable concept, like teaching someone to add before you give them a calculator, but it just may be possible. There even rumors that militaries that don't have this tech still manage to have snipers, though no one knows how or why.

Outside the fanatics - no one cares what the OS is - just that the tool does what its suppose to do.
