    "Smart Bullets" are here

    Here is an article about laser guided smart bullets by Guns.com.

    While I dont think that they'll be avavailable for civilian use for quite some time, it is an interesting concept. With micro circuit technology advancing at such a rapid rate, I suppose it was just a matter of time.

    What was that terrible 80's movie? "Runaway", I think? Tom Selleck, Gene Simmons, and DNA seeking bullets.

    I do remember that movie since I was dumb enough to actually pay to see it.

    Runaway (1984) - IMDb

    So, what does all of this sci-fi tech get us? Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) boasts that the bullet is 98 percent accurate within 2 km. And now that engineers have finally figured out a way to make the computer chip and battery survive after being shot out of a .50-caliber rifle, SNL is ready to put these bad boys into mass production. These bullets should be able to turn even the worst marksman into a ace shooter.
    I think that is going to be a bit difficult for concealed carry.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    I read an article around the year 2000 or so that was talking about a bullet (shell?) that could be programmed to explode at a defined distance from the rifle. This would allow one to target individuals behind cover. Never went anywhere as far as I know. That doesn't mean its not in use somewhere by special forces or one of the alphabet agencies.

    pretty cool technology, don't see it ever hitting the civilian market...
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    Suddenly zombie-killing, extreme duty, extremely extreme critical defense rounds seem quite affordable.
