optics

8 seconds:

Wait… 0:06 is that where they make Hot Pockets at lunch?

I wish they would really flex and make a MTV cribs style version.

Thoughts?

haha this video tho:

sammy-davis-jrNom nom nom haha.  I’ve heard good things about their stuff.

Their YouTube channel wasn’t on my radar until I exchanged emails with an ENDO Customer / Vortex employee recently and checked it out.  Sadly there aren’t more videos of animals eating their products.  I was holding my breath for a crazy shark video, or a honey badger massacring a scope.

Thoughts?

We live in a profitable time where every gun company wants to cover all the bases and make everything:

Hair-Hare-In-Scope-OpticsDo they outsource these, or do they make them in house?  Who knows.  I also have no idea how they will sell, considering there are a handful of other well known companies that have been around for decades who make a wide range of optics for any and every use.

Thoughts?  Do you like the fact you can put a Sig brand optic on your Sig brand Sig?  Me?  I’ll hold my breath for Hi-Point optics.

Vigilant Spectre talked to them at SHOT.  Kind of hard to hear yea… Spectre needs to get an external puffy mic next year:

Summary: The ammo everyone complains about for stupid reasons but uses anyway because it’s cheap and awesome, now has various optics. It’s obvious WOLF knows their position in the market and are pretty comfortable there.  They aren’t out trying to beat Hornady, and that’s ok.

Wolf-Ammo-LogoI’d like to say check out the WOLF website, and read all the awesome info and see the prices on the optics… but there isn’t any mention of them yet up there. :/  Hopefully soon now that shot is over.

Thoughts?  Would potentially operate with considering the price point is likely agreeable?

Text your mom while you’re double tapping tangos; tell her you might be late for supper:

June pre-order for $70 over at Inteliscopes.

Meh I’m not a fan, I’m sure they will sell like hotcakes though.  Even if I owned an iPhone you wouldn’t find me throwing one of these on my AR-15.  I don’t need something 4.5″ / 4.87″ wide (iPhone 4s/5) with a plastic hood increasing my drag when I operate in operations.  Not as wide obviously if you put in it portrait mode, but then you might as well strap a water ski to the top of your AR-15 because you just added lots of height.  If you’re not about drag reduction then what are you about cousin?

Cowwadoody nerds are going to love the video recording capabilities.  So many hunting head shots going up on vine and youtube… I can see it now.

Nothing like trading in the few thousand dollar Nightforce for a screen with digital zoom.  There are some more pictures and video up on the Intelliscope Facebook page, but no real life close look at it that I could see… just a lot of renders and tv quality video from a distance.

InteliscopeI can’t wait until some newb throws this on a .50, puts his face real close and the metaphorical hand of Steve Jobs slaps the shooter across the face for embarrassing shooters and iPhone users simultaneously.

At the end of the day, all the power to this company for making a product for one of the most popular smartphones which people are bound to get at least the $70 sticker price worth of enjoyment out of.

Considering the camera is off far to the one side, I wonder how you properly zero?

If I ever do get an opportunity to try this thing out, you better believe I’m going to be streaming some Chief Keef, dumping mags until the barrel droops like a wet noodle.

Thoughts?

Long, but worth the watch. Zeiss does make some pretty impressive scopes… I just wish they weren’t so expensive.

I love that accent, it’s so super-villain.
