Intellegent rifle tags your target, fires when your on.

A scope and rifle that take all the guess work out of it, even the trigger just tells the gun you are ready and the scope fires the round when you are locked on. I want one but in the wrong hands this would be very bad. This is exciting and a little scary stuff. Now your 10 year old can hit at 800, 1000 or even 1200 yards every time they pulls the trigger. A couple of short video's to check out. What a sweet rifle as well. Comes with 200 round 338 lapua, I-pad, rifle and scope for $17,000 to $22,000. Not many of us are getting one, but I wish, ALLOT! Just found the last vid and it isn't quite as easy as they make it sound but still amazing.

This could be great for bad guy control but they are also promoting it as a great hunting tool. After thinking about it last night I can see where this rifle could take allot of the fun out of hunting. I mean most of the fun is finding the animal, tracking it and then after getting as close as you think you can without spooking your target you get to find out if your as good a shot as you think you are and if all the practice paid off. Not much suspense with this gun, pretty much if you can see it you will hit it. Bad guy rifle I'm in hunting rifle not so much unless it is a must get meat gun and forget the sport of it.

We just bought a Turkish shotgun (UTS-15), no room in the budget for an aimbot.

I'm surprise no one mentioned (howled about) the potential gun control application. Once they get it small enough (and they will eventually) it could be implanted in all civilian firearms to prevent any shots at humans.

Bad idea; I saw that movie forty years ago or so. Didn't work out all that well when the good guy's restricter worked as designed but the bad guy's didn't. Westworld; where nothing can possibly go wrong... go wrong... go wrong...

That said, just because it's an obviously bad idea doesn't mean it wouldn't become the central idea of a new govt bureaucracy.

Let us know how that works out. I've read good and bad about it.

How is a scope going to accurately judge wind, mirage, updraft and other things needed to hit at 1200 yards? Pulling the trigger when the crosshairs are on target is the easy part. Getting all the corrections right takes experience and judgement.

Are you trying to do the gun control crowd's job for them? This is exactly the logic they would use. Now we HAVE to ban it because now criminals will be able to just assassinate people from a mile away! It's much to dangerous for anyone to have. Except the police and military of course. We'll just ban this along with all the other weapons that are scary and dangerous in the wrong hands.

Actually, that could also be done, both via sensors on the scope, and a good manual input interface. (Part of a design study I did on my own last year.) And if the vision system could determine where a first shot hit if it missed, it could be set to automatically compensate for the second shot, even when the gun moved slightly between when it was fired and when the first bullet hit.

Whether that could compete with "experience" is another question.
