TrackingPoint-LogoSo awesome.  I’ve definitely talked about their semi-autos before this… but I thought this video was cool so there it is.

A demonstration of the different modes, and the capabilities:

Holy that’s come a long way since their first system.  This new system comes in 7.62, .300 BLK, and of course 5.56.

TrackingPoint-LogoRead more about it all over on the Tracking Point website.

TrackingPoint CEO defends his product and his rights:

“Guns Kill people”… “Think of the implications”.. blah blah blah same old anti-gun arguments.

“Weapons System” used to be the term which I hated the most…. I can safely say that has now been replaced with “Firing Solution”.  Is that a thing people say?  I think I’m going to start calling this blog a “Derp delivery system / entertainment solution”

TrackingPoint-LogoSweet lord $20-30k.  Until they make one for the Deagle brand Deagle I’m not putting up that kind of money.

Thoughts?

Taking the fun and difficulty out of shooting.  WANT!:

I’d like to own that setup just for the pure novelty of it, even though I probably wouldn’t use it all that much.  I have so many questions about this… Does it work on moving targets?  Is wind somehow accounted for? How big is the entire system? Can it be programmed to say “HEAAAAAAD shot!” when the bullet impacts the target?

Not much info on this system out there yet, but here’s what we know:

  • 50x zoom digital tracking optic and smart trigger
  • Integrated with .300 Winchester Magnum XM2010
  • Using 220 gr. Mk248 Mod 1 Ammunition
  • Streaming video from heads up display

This video leaked, so it might disappear soon if they didn’t want the world to see it.  You can sign up for updates at the TrackingPoint website though and they will likely let you know when they come out with something they want you to see.

Thoughts?

Input Coordinates And Wave Goodbye:

The APMI XM395, cartridge uses a standard M934 high-explosive 120mm projectile body. In the nose, a GPS receiver and computer controlled aerodynamic directional fins keep the round on its programmed trajectory. Folding fins in the tail provide stability.

APMI also has a multi-functional fuse, which allows the round to be programmed to explode in the air, once it hits a hard surface or after it penetrates inside a target.

In order for the autonomous flight and fuse control to function properly, operators must input mission and GPS data from a fire control computer into the round using a setting device.

Full Story – HERE

It warms my heart to see technology used to more efficiently kill our enemies.
