It’s not waterproof, it’s not shock-proof, it’s not nitrogen-purged, and there’s no guarantee it will return to zero or even hold it, for that matter. But if you want to stream your prairie-dog kills (or PETA-approved airsoft battles) live over the Interwebs, Inteliscope’s new can turn your iPhone 4/4S/5 into a 3G-enabled HUD rifle scope. […]
[HTML1] As gun owners/writers go, I’m pretty non-violent. I’ve never shot another human being. I’ve never bagged a deer. Never shot anything larger than a dove, in fact. Even though I conceal carry, I don’t really believe, in my heart of hearts, I’ll ever have to shoot someone in self-defense. So I’m trying to figure […]
Listen up, buckaroo…if yer the kinda desperado that has a hankerin’ to drill some other sidewinder fulla lead, you gotta call ’em out for a shoot-out. But this is 2010.

Clip it to the holder, and run that puppy downrange, then it’s “shooter ready” and we’re off to the races. But paper targets, live ammo, and practice time […]
You’re at work. You’re bored. Time for a mental health break, and you you’ve got a Jones to revel in your inner shooter.

But is it fun? Well, I’d give it a thumbs up, simply because it seems to be a great deal more realistic than most single-person shooters that I’ve played. It is a little frustrating though, simply because the bad guys don’t take long to start shooting, once you’ve gotten through the training set. And of course, you can’t beat the price. Which is a good thing, as reviewers in the iTunes store have complained that the mission is fairly short, and there’s nothing to do, once you’ve completed the mission.
