Want To Be A Sniper But Not Attend Sniper Training?

Well, here is the TrackingPoint shooting system. It may do the trick for you and turn you into an expert marksman, or at least an expert systems user, within minutes. I would like to have seen further demonstrations such as it locking in on a moving target (if that is possible) or a shot at 1,000 yards, but I guess I will have to wait for the product to be released and have others make videos of it performing like that.




Once this becomes commercially available, I would recommend getting one ASAP if you want one. My guess would be that it will either be outlawed in almost no time or quickly will be taken over under some sort of military contract with no further commercial sales available.

Hat tip to Pat S for this one.

All the best,

Unfair And Unbalanced?

Fox News likes to repeatedly tell the world their brand of news reporting is fair and balanced. Yet, today, they have an online poll asking what you think will be the next political crisis. The choices they allow are anything but fair and balanced, as far as I can see, as all of the choices in the poll have to deal with the budget. Bear in mind, the poll question did not ask about the next budgetary crisis but the next crisis in Washington (as in DC). They totally neglect such other issues as: the Right To Keep and Bear Arms, which certainly seems to me to be the brewing crisis of the moment. They also forgot the continuing saga of the Benghazi mess, the ongoing war against terrorism, the war in Afghanistan, additional and ongoing Constitutional concerns over Obama-care, the lack of Congress acting to provide for post storm care for the northeast, unemployment and so on. Is it that they have very little insight into what is going on that may erupt into a fabricated crisis, just as did the so called fiscal cliff or is it that they want to steer Americans away from even thinking about such things as firearms rights?

All the best,
