    electronic ballistics tables and data books

    There are several PALM-based or similar PDAs out there that double as on the fly ballistics calculators, one of which includes bullet specificdata and calculates wind drift and other inputs in making its determination of windage and elevation (NOT the horus system) Here is the link to the one I was looking at for a while:

    http://www.constantforce.com/index2.htm I would like to see a review of such equipment.

    I recognize the utility in being able to calculate things manually, especially if the gizmo breaks or battery dies, but click click pull the trigger is pretty nice too. :lol:

    When I last contacted Carl (february 2004), he offered to comp me the Palm software if I was going to install it on a new Plam model and tell them how it worked. I'll forward that email to you.

    I'd be very interested to see how accurate it is, and how complex. Do they even make a Palm that would survive field conditions?
    Gun control makes about as much sense as trying to control drunk driving by stopping sober people from getting in cars...

    Yes and no. Yes if you get one of the waterproof, shock shield cases as an accessory. I would not bet on it if you didn't get the shock shield case.

    now, now. I didn't break my M40A1. Then again, my M16 was not worth a darn after I got done with it.

    "If it positively, absolutely, has to be distroyed over-night, call in the Marines"

    :wink:

    Its funny actually, McMillan states somewhere that absolutely nothing is Marine proof, they have had 2 stocks returned on their M40A1's. Which, quite honestly, is nothing short of remarkable!
