Airborne Combat Engineer discusses a new business that I can do without, here.
Remote control target shooting and even hunting. Damned if I get it. The remote control target shooting differs from a video game how? Just because you get real holes in the target means exactly what if you made those holes using a mouse from 1000 miles away while sitting in front of your computer?
It's a different situation when you are actually in contact with the firearm and accuracy depends on your interface with the weapon and your reading of the wind, etc. That's reality.
It gets sicker. The Christian Science Monitor reports that the founder feels it's a good alternative for handicapped hunters and has even heard from a Spanish soldier who wants to send meat to his family. Read about that here.
There are all sorts of accomodations on the books to help handicapped persons hunt. I can't imagine that turning hunting into a video game is to anyone's advantage. And it's utterly absurd to assert that there is a Spanish soldier who believes it's economically feasible to shoot an animal in the US via remote control, have it butchered and sent to Spain.
Kinda reminds me of the short lived deal in Nevada (I think), where men could pay to "hunt" naked women with paintguns.
