Tracking Point -“The World’s first Smart rifle” – says a new shooter can take their weapon system and, after a few minutes of training, make consistent 1,000 yard hits.

We’re going to test that theory.smart_rifle

The company says they’ve taken a jet fighter’s “lock and launch” technology, and incorporated it into their weapons platform.

The rifles come in .338 Lapua and .300 Winchester Magnum. The packages retail for around $27,000.

I’ve been invited to test one of their weapons systems Oct. 30, at a range in Hillsborough County. We’ll bring back plenty of video and pics.

I was 18 the last time I made a 1,000 yard shot. The weapon – an M2. The target – a life-size plywood BRDM-2 cut out. That hit took me half a belt of .50 cal ammo to achieve.

Hopefully Tracking Point can improve my long-distance shooting a bit.

  2. Just a thought, we need to make sure that even when spenkiag to like minded individuals we are using terminology that turns the tone of the debate. For example we, the supporters of the RKBA, are not advocating for ownership of high capacity magazines. Instead we are advocating for ownership of standard capacity magazines. This change in terminology is a critical change in terms that must be habitual because it is a lot hard for the antis and the uneducated to argue for outlawing standard equipment than something that sounds like it is excessive.Yes, I know this is a small thing but as we are aware from being on the wrong side of misused terms words matter and if we are going to win this thing at the cultural level, the only level that truly safeguards our rights, then we have to start fighting at that level and words shape the culture which shapes the debate.
