Tachyon XC New GunCam
The Truth About Guns ^ | 17 May, 2011 | Robert Farago

Tachyon GunCam™ – the entire collection bundle, or a la carte – consists of a variety of mounts that will secure the Tachyon OPS and OPS HD cameras to almost any handgun, rifle, or shotgun. Tachyon’s Picatinny Rail mount can easily be mounted to any gun that is equipped with a Picatinny rail. For guns without rails, such as rifles and shotguns, they offer attachable rails designed specifically for each type of gun. They even have a rail mount designed for scopes.

The Tachyon OPS camera’s patented symmetrical mounting design allows them, in their mounts, to rotate four ways and also reverse, giving the user a total of eight directions of mounting for a wide variety of video angles. The Picatinny rail mount is adjustable and small enough to fit onto the rail of a pistol. These GunCam™ mounts also include a rail for bolt action rifles that attaches to the sling stud, while still allowing the sling to be attached. No modification of the rifle is required.

The accessories also include two rails for 12 gauge semi-auto and pump-action shotguns, a mount for ball-caps and goggle-straps, a mount for tripods, and a mount for the curved surfaces of helmets. These cameras can be easily mounted to just about anything. It can go hunting one weekend and then go on an ATV ride the next. Solid, zinc-alloy construction ensures a safe, secure and durable mount.

The Tachyon OPS camera weighs in at only one ounce and measures just .95 inches in width and height and is 2.25 inches long. The OPS HD is only slightly larger. The OPS cameras with their built-in rechargeable batteries, record over two hours of continuous high quality video. The OPS cameras use a 4GB – 32GB Micro SD card, which is sold separately. They feature a high-dynamic light sensor with superior light gathering ability that makes them ideal for early morning hunts and indoor ranges.

“The FBI estimates there are more than 200 million privately owned guns in the United States, and that number is rising.”, said John Chase, Sales Director for Tachyon, Inc. “We noticed that the industry was lacking a legitimate way to secure a camera to a handgun, let alone rifles and shotguns.” “We saw a need and filled it.” “Our entire GunCam™ package of mounting accessories has been custom designed specifically for hunters, shooters, law-enforcement, and military.”

The new OPS cameras, which fully integrate with the GunCam™ mounts, are a gun owners dream and couldn’t be easier to use. They have a simple, one-button operation and are plug-and-play with a PC or a Mac. There is no software to download or drivers to install. For those who would like to buy the complete bundle, it is $149.99 for the OPS and $199.99 for the OPS HD.

It looks interesting. It won't be long before we have them that go for 24 hours. This one goes for 2 hours.

What’s a “rail”?

It’s a place on a firearm where you can add an attachment. You might have a rail on top where you can slide on a scope, or one just under the barrel where you can slide on a flashlight, laser, or camera.

Would be fantastic as a trainer. That way shooters could really see how poorly they are squeezing the trigger, like me. One of the hardest habits to break - even after years I have been missing bullseyes because I can’t adapt to the trigger fast enough.

Lasers actually helped me out a LOT. At least then I can see what I’m doing wrong at the hammer drop.

Oh, and I only read your blurb, I didn’t click the link to see how well it works.

laser’s are great for making a game of target shooting.

However, they only slow you down in a tactical situation.

Learn to point shoot and practice often.

WIth an empty weapon, Quickly raise your weapon to best guess target position. Check for sight alignment.
Repeat often, until muscle memory allows you to gain accurate alignment.
Then go practice at the range.

Everybody in the family likes the game cameras. Nobody wants to go shoot a bear out of my stand & barrel; but they all want to see all the bear that come in all night long.

I think these gun cameras will be a big hit if they are high quality. I can just imagine the video I'd get when the caribou migrate through and we fill up the trucks.

I bought a Burris Shot cam late last summer with the intention of recording long range critter kills. As there is no zoom feature, the 400 yard shots were kinda useless. 50-75 yard shots you can make out what is hit, but the prairie dogs aren't tame enough to pop up that close. Coyotes make good subjects for the barrel mounts. Going feral pig shooting in September, should be good for that.

I might try an Anarondack Smart Scope this season for the long range varmint shooting (Colorado).
