    No but have been thinking of getting something similar. Do it, should make some good footage and be fine on a 223 or the like

    No but that looks like it would be handy.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    No but I know the guy who has designed them very well. We went to school together. The idea is cool, practicality for accurate shooting I'm not so sure about.

    They've had one on a suppressed 7-08 and sight picture of bullet meeting target was still quite visible. I will be playing with one soon hopefully, just need to go down a pick it up.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
