Perhaps not the shot heard round the world, but.....
Have drones and smart rifles made it impossible to protect politicians and famous people when they are outdoors?
One can but hope.
Drones are a luxury. A steady hand with experience guarantees that such “protection” you speak of is a fantasy in the minds of those who believe they are “invincible”.
Check this out:
it was about time
Ringing steal at 1K yards. If that doesn’t give you a chubby, nothing will.
What is it she’s shooting? .338 Lapua?
I think I’ve read about this system before. You tag your target, it calculates windage and elevation for you, you pull the trigger, and it doesn’t fire until you’re dead on target. No skill involved, indeed. She’s all over, and should have a bag under the stock.
I’ve shot at 600 at a range I belong to. It’s not trivial. You really do have to watch the flags and time your shot. And you have to have the right equipment. I can only guess what 1K yards is like. The nearest 1K yard range is half a state away.
Not for long.
I was looking at Los Angeles real estate on the Web yesterday.
One realtor hired a group of build-them-yourself drone hobbyists to take high def aerial videos of various properties and neighborhoods.
Awesome pictures, and equally awesome smoothness and control.
You could stick 5 pounds of explosive on one of those home built drones and fly it right by someone sitting on his 20th floor balcony a couple miles away.
Only a question of time before this becomes a weapon for assassins and terrorists.
The human's role should be limited to choosing the target, not aiming or pulling the trigger.
If you don't need a human to land a drone on a carrier, why do you need a human to hit a target at 1000 yards?
Careful.....but u r not alone
First time in my life I would not care
Strange times we’re living in.
Imagine a few of these rifles, and maybe a few night vision scopes, on Iwo Jima.
for the rush...
One still would have had to root the enemy out of the jungle and their bunkers.
pink spray maker...
In before the FR anti-gun infiltrators and anti-hunting fairies begin to denounce this gun and its effect on Bambi...
surprised it hasn’t happened to a great many of these maggots stealing our money.
i just saw an add for $459.00 you can buy a 4 rotor platform for a go pro
that is amazing.
Flys does loop to loops and returns from where it started automatically.
Very nice. Every time I say “I’m done Gun Shopping” I find something else I want. This is defiantly on the list!
At approximately $25,000.00, you will be saving for a few months.
Not lovable, but impressive.
Drones are not limited to aerial use.
What about thousands of semi-smart crawling drones sent in loaded with explosives?
Jungles and bunkers are no longer any sort of protection, only a trap.
This particular tech is much more an advantage to the defender than the attacker.
Amen. The downside at the moment, is these kind of rifles are expensive. The thing to remember though, is that the tech always gets better, and cheaper.
That’s an awesome link.
Blowing out the car window, then blowing up the car was amazing.
One cautionary note.....
I think “friendly fire” could be a definite downside risk for hobbyists and innocent bystanders!
Not an issue on Iwo.
No doubt; however, the modern weapons would certainly have saved many Marine lives.
So we keep them out of the hands of the Japanese.
Very difficult to keep full control of tech, especially easily portable tech, once it’s been created.
You’re right, of course; how long before the Russians and Chinese have this weapon?
Hey I went to a lot of effort to spray paint that albino moose.
Bambi is camp food before opening day!
