    I find myself seeing these things and just can't help myself...It's a crap shoot about 50-50 if it will be any good or will be usable in 5 years but I see certain things that just have that FUN factor and i have to give it a try....I just bought this for my AR's....

    Nope. You are the only one on the forum that will admit it. The rest are hiding in the closet.:D

    It's time to be transparent here folks!! I admit I have some disposable income, our kids are grown and gone but I just love all the nicky tricky stuff..I figure if it ain't over 3 or 4 hundred I'll save and give it a try if It really intrigues me.....

    I use a sunvisor-mounted action cam. So technically I may be a dork, but gosh, not as flaming as you are... :D

    It'll work. Good for bragging rights!

    In 1982 I spent $3000 or more (in 1982 dollars) on early computing equipment.
    Things have improved over the years. After 29 years with Boeing (completing my career in Computing Systems Architecture) I have slowed down in retirement.
    I don't care so much about keeping current.. or leading edge. It would be nice to if I had plenty of surplus cash, but my time is spent on Hobby Farming, Home Renovating and other things that keep me active.. ..... even too active.

    I like the idea of the camera, would be great fun to watch with the grand kids after we win the Zombie Apocalypse.

    I know all too well about that too active part. My family was making sure I had lots to do. My hobby was woodworking and my wife made sure I was building furniture for her and the kids. I threatened to go back to work so I could rest up.

    Absolutely not. The less batteries I have to use the better. I have a camera in my cell phone. That's high tech enough for me. I can take pictures of my children and grandchildren.

    None of that stuff interests me, I don't even want a basic AR.
