A Pflugerville, Texas, company is offering 10 high-tech sniper rifles to any U.S. organization that can legally bring them to the Middle East to be used against ISIS and al Qaeda—at no cost. TrackingPoint’s new Squad-Level Precision-Firearms (SQLPFs) can tag and automatically track enemy combatants—theoretically eliminating human error—and will begin shipping to qualified U.S. citizens Dec. 5.
“It’s hard to sit back and watch what is happening over there. We want to do our part,” said TrackingPoint CEO John McHale, in a press release. “Ten guns doesn’t sound like a lot, but the dramatic leap in lethality is a great force multiplier. Those ten guns will feel like two hundred to the enemy.
“We firmly believe that the M600 SR and M800 DMR will save countless lives and enable our soldiers to dominate enemy combatants including terrorists,” he added.
