TrackingPoint Unveils The Next Generation Of Precision-Guided Semi-Automatic Rifles

October 16th, 2014

Some more news from TrackingPoint, as they have announced three new semi-auto rifles equipped with PGF technology. The full release can be read below:

Pflugerville, TEXAS (October 14, 2014) — TrackingPoint™, creator of the world’s first and only Precision-Guided Firearm (PGF) systems, introduces new semi-automatic rifles that utilize fighter jet lock-and-launch technology enabling shots once considered beyond human ability. The new semi-autos enable you to make routine shots on targets moving up to 15mph out to ranges of more than one half mile. The new precision-guided semi-autos connect via WiFi to TrackingPoint’s newly introduced ShotGlass™ shooting glass technology. The Google Glass™ of hunting and shooting, ShotGlass™ enhances your precision-guided shooting experience via a built-in camera and high definition video display.

“The new semi-auto models were designed for several missions including wild boar eradication, predator control (including coyotes), whitetail hunting, homestead defense, and precision target shooting,” said TrackingPoint CEO John Lupher. “Precision-guided semi-automatic rifles are the game changer. Routinely making extraordinary shots at extreme distances on moving targets is a thrilling experience.”

The new semi-auto Precision-Guided Firearms are based on TrackingPoint’s breakthrough Tag-and-Shoot™ system. Tag-and-Shoot frees the shooter from common errors caused by jitter and trigger jerk. With Tag-and-Shoot, ballistics are calculated automatically and the need to estimate shot hold-over is eliminated, enabling you to successfully eradicate moving targets at extraordinary distances. Third party testing validates that Precision-Guided Firearms enable you to shoot better than the best shooter that ever lived.

TrackingPoint is offering three new semi-auto precision-guided rifles:

SA_556

A 5.56 caliber with one-third mile range at up to 10MPH target velocity for $7,495.

SA_762

A 7.62 caliber with half-mile range at 15MPH target velocity for $14,995.

SA_300WM

A brand new .300 WM with half-mile range at up to 20MPH target velocity for $18,995.

The VSSL Zombie – Fighting The Undead Horde With A Bouquet Of Flowers

October 15th, 2014

Back in August, we featured a product called the VSSL. It is an LED flashlight with a large handle that is used as a survival canister.

The project is currently on Kickstarter with 8 days left to go. Originally, one of the configurations was a Zombie themed VSSL which would have included a spike head attachment. As it turns out, Kickstarter has a “no-weapons” policy, and forced the project team to remove that particular configuration from the offerings. Here is how they responded:

Zombie VSSL

The Zombie VSSL features a black exterior, and comes with a dual mode LED flashlight, oil filled compass, surgical mask, and bouquet of flowers attachment head. Why (re)kill the undead when you can court them, right?

TrackingPoint Introduces ShotGlass, The First Wearable Tech For Hunting And Shooting

October 14th, 2014

Today, TrackingPoint announced their ShotGlass wearable tech. Think Google Glass, but geared specifically to interface with TrackingPoint’s line of PGFs. The full release can be read below:

ShotGlassJet_Black2

ShotGlass™, the Google Glass™ of hunting and shooting, enhances the precision-guided shooting experience via a built-in camera and high definition video display.

Pflugerville, TEXAS (October 14, 2014) — TrackingPoint™, creator of the world’s first and only Precision-Guided Firearm (PGF) systems, today announces the world’s first weapon-integrated digital shooting glasses, ShotGlass™. The new digital shooting glasses allow you to routinely make extraordinary shots from around corners, covered positions, over walls and behind trees. ShotGlass™ includes a video camera, microphone, and a high-definition video display, that automatically records high definition videos of your hunting and shooting experiences.

“ShotGlass™ is similar to Google Glass™ but optimized for shooting sports,” said TrackingPoint CEO John Lupher. “The innovative shooting glasses have an aggressive high-tech posture and connect wirelessly to TrackingPoint’s Precision-Guided Firearm’s. ShotGlass™ can even record the excitement of your voice when you make an astonishing shot on a moving trophy at extreme distance.”

ShotGlass™ has four primary uses:

1) Shooting around corners. Shoot from completely protected positions from behind trees or around corners when necessary to remain unexposed to the target.

2) Increase situational awareness. When you are zoomed in on a target with your Precision-Guided Firearm, the view in ShotGlass™ can remain zoomed out. This permits you two unique fields-of-view on the same shot.

3) Video/Voice Recording. ShotGlass™ can record everything you are seeing and saying. With the same capabilities as a GoPro™, ShotGlass™ videos can download directly to smart devices for sharing with friends, family and social media.

4) Collaborative shooting and mentoring. Friends or family can wear ShotGlass™ while others are shooting. They can see exactly what the shooter is seeing and share the same experience. Fathers can mentor children by guiding them to the proper whitetail. Professional hunters can see exactly what target their client is engaging and direct the client to the desired target and to the actual desired point-of-impact. In battle, a spotter wears ShotGlass™ to direct their sniper to the desired target in real-time under high battle stress.

ShotGlass™ is simple to use. Put them on like any other glasses and get ready to experience high-definition displays showing exactly what the TrackingPoint Precision-Guided Firearm is pointing toward. Now engage your target without actually looking through the Precision-Guided Firearm. You can shoot from a completely covered position without exposing your position. Hit a wild boar at 900 yards from behind a tree with only the PGF and shooting hand exposed. Tag-and-Shoot an entire pack of wild boar without being detected.

ShotGlassJet_black1

“Wearable tech, designed to enhance the shooting and hunting experience, changes the way you experience the sport,” said TrackingPoint CEO John Lupher. “ShotGlass™ adds an element to hunting and shooting that is beyond belief.”

Technical Specifications

• Wide Screen WQVGA display (Image appears as if on a 30” HD Display)
• High contrast and brightness
• Power saving sleep mode
• Optical control buttons – control even with hunting gloves on
• HD Camera
• Speaker and Microphone

Accepting pre-orders now for delivery in March, ShotGlass™ is available for $995 to TrackingPoint Precision-Guided Firearm owners. ShotGlass™ is free of charge with the purchase of your Precision-Guided Firearm prior to November 30, 2014. For more information visit www.Tracking-Point.com/ShotGlass.

Paper Airplane Machine Gun

October 8th, 2014

The Paper Airplane Machine Gun, or Papierflieger-Maschinenpistole (yes, it was made in Germany), is made mostly from 3D printed parts. It takes sheets of paper, internally folds them into paper airplanes, and then launches them. It reminds me in the loosest sense of that gun in the upcoming CoD: Advanced Warfare that 3D prints its own bullets from a canister of “liquid matter”*. The future is clearly now.

*This link leads to the official campaign trailer for Advanced Warfare. The 3D printer rifle is used by the player for most of the gameplay – notice how the total ammo count slowly increases.

October 8th, 2014

warsport-2014-large

KRISS Group SA officially entered into a trademark licensing agreement with War Sport Industries, LLC to produce the LVOA rifles, in .22 LR and 6mm, through its training and recreational shooting products brand, KRYTAC.

October 7, 2014 – Nyon, Switzerland – KRISS Group has entered into a worldwide license agreement with War Sport Industries, LLC to manufacture and distribute .22 LR and electric airsoft LVOA rifles under KRISS Group’s KRYTAC brand.

The agreement between KRISS Group and War Sport Industries represents an important step forward for KRYTAC to produce affordable training solutions based on innovative firearm products. The LVOA’s advanced design compliments the KRYTAC rifle product line with its unique silhouette and reputation for excellence.

“War Sport Industries is very excited to be partnering with KRISS Group SA in the LVOAtm trademark licensing agreement for the KRYTACtm and .22 LR product lines. The partnership brings two very innovative and “out of the box” manufacturers together to offer both training and recreational shooting products known as KRYTAC,” said Joey Boswell, CEO of War Sport Industries, LLC.

The KRYTAC LVOA .22 LR is intended to become the affordable shooting alternative for the range day enthusiast and tactical trainer by replicating the form and function of the 5.56mm LVOA rifles. The KRYTAC LVOA AEG (Airsoft Electric Gun) will provide shooters with a low impact, non-lethal training solution and replicate many of the same features of the War Sport LVOA rifles. It will be powered by the KRYTAC Nautilus 8mm Reinforced Gearbox.

The KRYTAC LVOA .22 LR and AEG are targeted for 2015. Release dates and pricing will be announced at the 2015 Shot Show Exhibition in Las Vegas, USA.

Red Bull Class Action Settlement

October 7th, 2014

If you have purchased a Red Bull energy drink product in the United States between January 1st, 2002, and October 3rd, 2014, then you likely qualify as part of two class action lawsuits currently being held against Red Bull.

As part of the ongoing settlement, a qualified consumer may claim either:

1) a $10 check

2) $15 worth of Red Bull products shipped to your chosen address at Red Bull’s expense

No proof of purchase is necessary if you decide to submit a claim form, however it must be signed under penalty of perjury, so in the most extreme of scenarios it might not hurt to have an old receipt laying around.

For more information, and to fill out and submit a claim form, visit energydrinksettlement.com/index.
