    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Check out my new watch!!!

    A cop friend of mine told me about these and I orderd one in Oct 2005. I forgot about the order as they were out of stock.

    So, I ordered another one from LA police gear, and notified the first guys to send me my watch. So I got two of them, and since my Dad is coming down this weekend, gonna give it to him for a late Father's day gift.

    Here's a great write up on it and how it looks on the writer's wrist. It looks bigger than my Breitling, which I like! :)

    MJS, that's basically it. Long range shooters need to work out how far to hold over a target, how far left, etc. based on range and wind conditions. The old way is a "range card" which lets you write down the results ahead of time and just look up the answer when you're on the range or in the field. The new way is a ballistic computer or a program for your laptop or PDA that does the calculations on site.

    The new-new way, apparently, is going to be a James Bond watch. :)

    For all that it does, the price is reasonable too…

    Mrs. Praxx: What do you mean, our radio is picking up radio transmissions from your iPod in the backseat? I am confused. You have all kinds of neat gadgets and now you have a High Tech watch that does all kinds of cool things! How long has it been since we left Scrapper's sister's house?
    Anthony: I don't know; my watch doesn't tell time!

    Nice watch, but wouldn't you rather have a spotter?

    I want a watch that can spring some giant spikes out of the sides with a push of a button, and can be removed from the watch band and then used like a throwing star. That would fucking own.

    Good spotters are hard to find!
