It was a while back when I posted about this smart gun…a rifle that when the user pulls the trigger, it doesn’t fire. Rather it waits a moment until it is confirmed on target, then fires. The advantages are numerous.
- Trigger control becomes less important. In that the pull is not going to affect targeting (no more pulling to the left, pulling the barrel down, etc)
- No more flinching….that’s pretty monumental for us novices prone to flinching
- Savings to be had by not wasting ammo on miss shots – with today’s ammo shortages this might be the #1 factor.
Well, now we know the price. $27,500 for a 1,000 yard auto-targeting rifle. That’s really not too bad for “new tech”. And I am sure this can be reduced to about $5,000 in another decade.
Yes, if I had the money, I would buy one.
