Guns, Guns, Guns

When I discovered that there was an app  for the iPhone in the AppStore that allows snipers to work out bullet trajectories based on the round used, distance, environmental conditions and so on, I was frankly amazed.

Given all the spurious reasons that Apple give for denying software developers entry into the AppStore, you’d have thought that killing someone or something might have been a criteria that made some sense.

I’m not anti-gun per se.  I’ve been to the range with rifles, pistols and semis but it’s just the contrast between what Apple allows and doesn’t that got me in this instance.

By the way, it’s called BulletFlight if you want to have a look.

This app also looked fun but it’s only a training system and it isn’t in the AppStore – Patriot Crew Drill by Raytheon.
