Well if the batteries did die then you couldn't use the gun... Although the scope does hold two batteries and it shows you the power of both of them on the LCD screen. When I used the gun I had the scope powered on for a little over an hour and the power went from about 90 percent to 79 percent life on one battery. The other battery in the scope wont be used until the first battery completely dies. Tracking Point sends three batteries total with the gun and of course a charger too. I am sure you would be able to purchase an extra few if you felt the need.

One other good feature that the gun offers is a traditional shooting mode. The scope will automatically stay zeroed in at 100 yards in case you need to make quicker shorter shots without using the tag and track mechanism. In fact the tag button turns into a range finder at that point, and it is a very responsive find with the range. That is what I used when I was looking for an area to make a 1000+ yard shot because I forgot my handheld rangefinder at my house.

Actually you should consider contacting tracking point and asking them if they are ever going to be in your area to do promotional shooting events. They hold quite a few and they let a lot of people have the opportunity to use their system. I hope you do get a chance to shoot one though because it really is a neat technology!

I'm just to old to change I guess. I would like a chance to shoot against that wonder of technology w/ some from the last century though. Give me a handicap of 2" and I'd shoot against it at 400..800 yards. I just don't see the need to actually make going to the range a video game. I can play my kids xbox and do that.

Haha well you call me when your kids xbox can kill a sheep at 800+ yards away. I have no doubt that there is some shooters out their who can out shoot the TP, but I'm an average shooter and this allows me to take shots at a lot more than I used to.

Good point! Nothing wrong with technology advancements making things fun for people who wouldn't be able to do them otherwise.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?
