Now you can outshoot an experienced shooter without experience

TrackingPoint 'smart rifle' TGood Day World!

 Pow!

Take a gander at this baby. It’s the new AR Smart Rifle by TrackingPoint.

The technology in this weapon automatically makes you a crack shot. Even if you’ve never fired a weapon in your life.  You’ll be able to hit anything within a 500-yard range. It has five times the accuracy of an experienced shooter!

The user simply "tags" the target, and the gun and ammo do the rest, all for a mere $9,950 - the starting price for the new series.

The gun can track a target moving at up to 10 mph and allows for rapid engagement, meaning a person can shoot multiple targets quickly.

Is it just me that thinks this is scary?

Just imagine the possibilities. Law enforcement across the country will be outgunned by deadly neophytes who can afford to pay 10 grand.

The makers of the new Smart Rifle say they’re going to be picky about who they sell it to. They want someone who is going to shoot it a lot, and is willing to give them plenty of input throughout the process. Be that as it may, I doubt if they’re going to turn away a paying customer who doesn’t want to play their game.

TrackingPoint is the inventor of Precision Guided Firearms, a guided shooting system that the company says creates the most accurate guns in the world. The new rifle is the company's first semi-automatic series.

Think about it. No more wounding people or animals. Each shot spells a kill. The final frontier of firearms has arrived – you don’t have to know about a damn thing when it comes to shooting them – just point and fire.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
