Pipe dreams ? But,,,,,,,,,,,,

Technology,,,,,,,
I know this would take all sport out of the game, but what a boon for varmint and pest eradication.

How far off are we from having rifle rounds that would act along the same principle as guided missiles ???
ie: thermal heat seeking.

Can you imagine the "powers" (weapons licensing, govt, the antis, etc) scrambling to contain that ?
I do not fear death itself... Only its inopportune timing!
I've come to realize that,,,,, the two most loving, loyal, and trustworthy females in my entire life were both canines.

I wonder if drone deployed grenades have taken the heat off trying to develop smart bullets?

The US already have drone pods for F18 Hornet 500 per pod and unless you wearing an American uniform as a drone just flies down 3 feet away from your head explodes

The real money is made when they deploy the asprin drones after that.
You can't even begin to imagine how much an enemy soldier is willing to trade for a single Aspro Clear after having a grenade detonate 3 ft from his head.

The video that showed the explosive drones has been taken down it was up several months ago this is the only thing I could find today .

Or a C-17 load of micro drones ?
I do not trust the govt not to use that on white males in the future.

No idea, but I ordered 200rds as soon as I saw it. Haven't arrived yet, but I'm happily waiting ;-)
