    While I'm not anti-gun, this is um, goofy, to say the least. What a great "Idea". :rolleyes:

    Doom would be more fun, to be sure.

    Great. Hidden camera and gun. Let's make hunting even less of a challenge. I am assuming that there is some way to actually track who is in control of the cameras, vs. relying only on a login.

    BTW - is this a way for people who couldn't get a gun license to hunt anyway?

    Why do Americans want to shoot everything? :confused:

    If its not each other its anything with 4 legs, 2 legs or has wings and failing that its whatever country they have decided to invade this week.

    Boggles the mind.

    I hope they're not planning on leaving a .22 out for hunting pigs. Even a .22-250 won't be enough for one of those.

    If I wanted to shoot a gun, the virtual would not be my choice. Would prefer the real feel of the gun at a firing range. The only time that I ever fired a gun was while I was in the Air Force.

    I don't know why anyone would want to use this service. I can understand someone wanting to go out and actuallty hunt an animal, there's the skill of finding it, sneaking up without it seeing you, taking aim, correctly firing etc. It's a challenge. And then you get to slaughter it and learn about anatomy etc.

    But a web cam with a gun on? I don't get it. Such things are good for military applications because it's safer of course, but not hunting.

    That's just so wrong! What if the animal is only injured and ends up suffering? The dude who set this up is a moron.

    rig it so you can watch the webcam stream live! then you can confirm your kill and celebrate with friends and family without having to brave the elements.

    for the rugged outdoorsman without a sense of adventure :) (or a pair of testicles).

    Hopefully they will make remote controlled animals to go with it.

    Don't like to shoot? Well, you can be shot at for no additional charge!
