The Future Is Now: Tracking Point Precision Guided Firearms

Steve Johnson
by Steve Johnson

TrackingPoint is a manufacturer of “Intelligent Digital Tracking Scopes” and “Precision Guided Firearms” for hunting and tactical shooting. Their impressive technology allows a shooter to designate a target using the digital scope and the rifle will automatically fire only when the rifle is correctly lined up to the target. The demonstration of thier prototype looks more like a sci-fi movie than real life!

Initially the company will have three rifle models. The XS1 will be a tactical style rifle chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum, the XS2 will be a smaller version of the XS1 chambered in .300 Win. Mag. and the XS3 will be a hunting version of the XS2. The company recently confirmed that rifles and scopes will go into production next year (2013).

    I will never have, or need access to this device. however, as someone who has to spend a lot of money, and travel to hunt, with VERY limited time to hunt; and being an ethical hunter.... go for it !!!
