Mac has created it’s best application yet. It’s a ballistics program that allows you to calculate range, windage, gravity, elevation and weather. How is this any different from any number of similar programs? This one downloads to your iPod. It fits a secure case that clamps to the rifle, and has the same calculating power as one of the military models.

I’m still not sure how I feel about this. I took forever to get on the iPod train, and that was only with a shuffle, because it’s the simplest model they offer. I had the misfortune to be born in the wrong century, thus any bit of technology is witchcraft, should be burned as such. I understand the use for military technology, and even embrace a good deal of it. But sniping is one of those things that should remain based on instinct, and ability. Carlos Hathcock had no computers to aid him. I’ll remain on the fence on this for now, and keep hitting digital things with an axe.

Here’s the link

PS- if you don’t know who Carlos Hathcock is, Educate yourself.
