Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Found those on DangerRoom: http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2009/07/gun-accessories/ Modified by me.

The technology for actually firing a bullet has evolved relatively slowly over the years, but the accessories that can be mounted on guns themselves are a different story.

Advanced optics and ballistic computers are changing the way that soldiers take aim, and silencers have become a hot commodity for civilian marksmen. Even iPhone and beverage holders are available.

#1: On top of this .50 cal. Barrett sniper rifle shown below sits a BORS tactical computer , which can calculate the trajectory of every bullet that it lobs downrange. An internal temperature sensor even compensates for the density of the air. On the side is a USB port, which allows serious shooters to upload ballistics tables for their favorite rounds. BORS: $1,600

#2: The iPhone mounted inside of a protective case on this M110 semiautomatic sniper rifle can make detailed ballistic calculations with the BulletFlight app. It can determine the effects of windage, distance, air pressure, humidity and temperature, which makes dialing in the position of the scope’s crosshairs far easier. Think different, and then take the perfect shot. $29.99 in the USA[/b]

#3: What do you buy for the sniper who has everything? A cup holder! Not all shooting accessories need to be tactical. This one is refreshing.. . Price Not Known Yet

#4: Like the cameras on patrol cars, the Pistol Cam is intended for use by police officers to provide objective video in court proceedings, if necessary. As a bonus, it has a laser pointer and a high intensity LED light. Pistolcam: $895

#5: This waterproof Mars Scope pairs fourth-generation image intensifier tubes with 6x magnification lenses. ATN, the scope’s manufacturer, uses “White Phosphor Technology” to present the shooter with a crisp black-and-white image, rather than the usual greenscale of older scopes. Named after the god of war, it’s intended for use on the battlefield — giving soldiers visibility while remaining invisible themselves. Scope: $4,895

#6: This Glock pistol is mounted in a Cornershot system. The complicated gadget holds a camera just below the gun, and has an LCD display on its side. That feature allows its users to peek around corners without exposing themselves to enemy gunfire. It is also equipped with a laser sight, which makes aiming it much easier. Cornershot makes similar systems for grenade launchers, AK-47s and even paintball guns. Cornershot: $5,500 - 11,000.

#7: Same task, other solution, for smaller budgets: Aimpoint makes this Concealed Engagement Unit, a periscope that allows soldiers to shoot while taking cover. They can point their gun around a corner while holding it at arms length, and look at it from the side. Their targets will be visible through the red viewing port. It can be used in combination with the company’s 3x magnification scopes and electronic sights. Periscope: $312
