    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.
