Well..it may be able to soon! I wonder if they will make one of these for an AR Pistol? A weird looking contraption...but still kind of cool!

I think this might add a whole new dimension to entry situations! I would like to hear from our LEO Military members...do you think this is something of value, or "bells and whistles"?

Mods - please excuse me if this is not posted in the right area, I was not sure where to put it.

my reply from another thread: I dont like this idea. Someone rushes you while your weapon is bent at an angle. You gotta hold the gun awefully funky to be able to hit them at close range. Also, I do not like the "flip screen" on the side of the reciever(?). This takes the operators focus off of everything around him. NOT good. Now, a good idea IMHO would be a small camera that is the size of a Streamlight M6 or an M3 taclight. The camera would be "zeroed" with the barrel so you could aim by using the camera. Have a monocular that can flip down over the operator's non-dominant eye, that shows what the camera shows. He can still see whats going on around him and doesnt have a bent gun, incase someone rushes him. Basically the LandWarrior system for a pistol/subgun. Aim around corners and still have a usable weapon, all the while being able to see whats going on around you.

I cheated! - I opened up a Word doc and used the "Insert" command at the top, and then select "insert character". A little list pops up and you can choose it from all sorts of stuff. Then you just cut & paste it into your post.

I wasn't trying to be a dick but it wasn't about AR's and it's a dupe. Apologies if I offended you.

My AR's can shoot around corners at 45 degree angles. But only on the Planet of Alderan.
