    OK I admit it, my first thought when I saw this was…cool!

    There are some good apps for shooting sports but users say that the new Knights Armaments M110 iPod Touch mount and accompanying ballistics software is simply wicked.

    The gun in the picture is the M110, the 7.62×51mm semi-automatic sniper system, which won the Army’s competition to replace the M24 bolt action sniper system. Knights Armaments has created a mounting system for the iPod Touch that attaches to a side mounted picatinny rail of the sniper. The mount is also protected by a protective case.

    Then Runaway technologies built Bullet Flight, an external ballistics calculator for the iPod Touch and iPhone. This is your standard ballistics app: allows users to set firearm and ammunition profiles, then use this profile and enter info such as distance, wind direction, elevation and temperature.

    The app is costly though, $11.99, now in the app store.

    My second thought when I saw this was that Apple is going to take out the Palm Pre by one way or another!

    It may be a good training device but anything outside of that is impractical.

    somehow, even with a bulletproof case, I don't see the touch surviving a bullet.....

    When asked what he would say to the columbine killers, Marilyn Manson said, "I would say nothing to them. I would listen to what they have to say, because that's what nobody else did" from the movie Farenheit 9/11

    Cool! I don't really see the use of it outside of the army, but it is still pretty cool! It really shows all of the uses the iPod Touch/iPhone has that no one could have thought of in the beginning.

    This is sick. I wonder if this weapon is also sold to the IDF and used to shoot Palestinian women and children.

    Even the gun itself couldn't withstand the impact of a bullet. The purpose is to be rugged.

    Really? What if he had said "Wow, I hope those are being sold to Hamas soldiers to kill Jews."? Would that be sarcastic?

    Maybe.

    Either way, it's tacky, off-thread and race-baiting. Leave the outside world BS alone. There are plenty of places to discuss this kind of thing, this thread/forum is not one of them.

    Thanks AppleChic, great post What would be useful for the military and swat would be if such a set-up could be used with an app in combination with a thermal imaging sensor to show individuals hiding behind a wall.

    He wasn't saying that "it should be used" rather if the weapon "could be used" on them meaning there's war and this weapon could be deadly on an opponent.
