…. Could Be Historic.

"The week before ARDEC rolled out its unusual M4 rig, rifle guru and retired Army major general Robert Scales testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee on May 17 that revolutionary advances in computer miniaturization now allow "precision to be squeezed into a rifle sight" more than any other time in modern military history.

In modern military history, "one shot, one kill" was once a creed only for the highly-trained sniper, the hidden assassin who sows fear among enemy ranks from afar. Not anymore: The Army wants to build a rifle scope and optics system that will never miss and will turn every infantry soldier into an expert rifleman no matter how much they actually suck as a marksman….."

Guess you're going to be out of work teaching people how to shoot, Armand… grin

Running on 6x AA batteries is good, but the question then becomes "for how long?"

My thought exactly, Lion. Reliance on batteries in the field is never a good thing.
