New "Smart rifle"
WFAA/CNN) – Long range shooting just got a whole lot easier.
A Texas company has developed what's believed to be the world's first smart rifle.
The weapon calculates almost every variable, even clocking moving targets up to ten MPH.
Using a fighter jet's target locking system, a shooter sets a tag, matches up the crosshairs and fires.
The cost for the base model is just over $22,000.
Not everyone is excited about the new gun technology.
One gun victims advocate group calls the rifle a threat to safety.
