Tracking Point Precision Guided Firearm

Though we at ShotemandCaughtem might consider this technical advancement in hunting to be cheating, when we saw this rifle at the 2013 Shot Show we felt it was worth noting.  Though this system would be out of many hunters price range, it's still cool.  At a starting price around 27,000 dollars the .338 caliber Lapua Magnum Tacking point rifle system is quite the technological beast.  The weapon system will allow you to lace the target, track it's movement, and will provide you with a perfect kill shot from which you can line up your scope.  The system will also record the entire event as well as capture stills so that you can then post them to any social application.  The rifle is rated to help you make the perfect shot from 1200 yards away.  The software in the weapon system will actually do all the calculations for you on the fly so that the only thing you have to concentrate on is getting rid of your buck fever, controlling your breathing and not pulling your shot once you have locked in on your target.  That way when you try to blame the gun for missing the shot your buddies can remind you through photographic and video evidence that it was just the shooter.  The one thing we at ShotemandCaughtem could imagine doing with this rifle is using it to call out all those who said they have made 1000 yard shots but unfortunately there was no one there to verify the shot or that it was actually that far out.  Though we got to see the rifle in action on the video screen setup that was in the booth, we would love to get comments from those that have had the opportunity to shoot this rifle system in the field.  If you would like to learn more you can information from the companies website at www.tracking-point.com
