Sniper-aiding app arrives for iPhone
iShot the sheriff
The iTunes App Store has brought iPhone owners many useful and useless applications. But now one’s available that’ll let any idiot with a sniper rifle take out enemies with ease.
BulletFlight brings rifle support to the iPhone
Runaway Technology's BulletFlight is described as a “ballistic computer” that provides you with all the information required to derail a presidential cavalcade.
For example, it’ll help you set-up a shot according to your target’s distance, the wind speed, your altitude and the air pressure. Modes for ballistics calculations and bullet weight also feature.
So, provided you set things up correctly, your target won’t stand a chance.
Exactly how the app communicates with your chosen weapon is unclear, but - according to a weapons blog - a mounting system’s in development that’ll let you fix your iPhone or iPod Touch to the side of an M100 rifle.
Set-up your shot with ease
For lazy assassins, the app even has pre-set profiles for three rifles: the M110, the SR16 and the KAC PDW.
The BulletFlight app is available through the iTunes App Store now, priced at £7 ($11/€8). Bullets not included. ®
RE: FAC interview's
I suggest you stop digging now. The hole you've made for yourself in this thread is deep enough already.
"But also one each with both of the people that are nominated as referees."
Again false. While they may have done this in your case it is not a requirement of the Firearms Act or ACPO. Other peoples' experience differs from yours, I assure you.
Clearly your Firearms Licensing Department was not entirely happy with your application or referees and needed more reassurance.
"Runaway Technology's BulletFlight is described as a “ballistic computer” that provides you with all the information required to derail a presidential cavalcade."
That's just in poor taste...
"Sniper" app has been on app store for months
This app looks interesting but probably not as useful as isnipe which has been available on the iphone for some months - so why the sensationalist reporting?
As someone who shoots as a hobby and who makes home-load ammunition it's very useful to be able to customise the initial data set such projectile weight, zero range etc. But, even with all that information at your fingertips the likelihood of you being able to dial in the exact settings and hit a target, at range, with the first bullet, is very small
The line "let any idiot with a sniper rifle take out enemies with ease" belies a lack of understanding of the skills and knowledge needed for accurate long-range shooting.
As for "communicating with your chosen weapon"... can someone tell me where I can buy a rifle with an onboard computer, USB / wifi and a headphone jack?!!!
Ok I hate it when people jump on the band wagon about this Fucking condition !
I Have it, I dont shout out every time my shitty spelling shows me up i just swallow my pride and get on with it !!
I have become better at spelling because I have to, I lost my job once because i couldn't spell business, You can bet your ass i can spell it now !

>False. One home visit from local Firearms Enquiries Officer.
Sorry not 100%. One with your self. Yes.
But also one each with both of the people that are nominated as referees.
