Out with the old, in with the new

Saw this while surfing around this weekend:

What does it say when the Consumer Electronics Show is featuring a firearm...?

Don't know how it is making hunting safer .....for the hunter or the quarry ?

I've seen that rifle used on u-tube and with that sighting system I'd say it must be outlawed as a hunting rifle . Those guys were taking shots in excess of 1000 yards at game (not what I'd call hunting , more sniping)

Takes the fun out of hunting if you ask me .....hunting should not revolve around the shot and kill but how you get to the stage where you're in position to take that shot IMHO

That is a killing rifle, not a hunting rifle.
And to rv1111, a real hunter doesn't need a 50 caliber to hunt anything outside of Africa.
