SHOT Show 2014 – TrackingPoint

Friday, January 17th, 2014


TrackingPoint is expanding into the semi-auto realm with the new TrackingPoint 500 Series ARs, announced for 2014. Built upon the Daniel Defense DDM4 V7, the TrackingPoint AR utilizes the same Tag Track Xact technology as the bolt-action rifle scopes, but in a smaller frame. This allows for the user to make marked shots on targets traveling up to 10 mph out to 500 yards and utilize 2-12x magnification. Because of the integrated nature of the TrackingPoint system, it will only be available as a complete rifle w/ scope.

The rifles will be offered in offered in 7.62, .300 BLK, and 5.56 calibers. They are currently taking pre-orders. Delivery starts October 2014.


Daniel Defense – Banned By The NFL

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

In case you haven’t heard, the NFL recently denied a commercial by Georgia-based firearms manufacturer Daniel Defense to be played during the 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII on FOX, on the grounds that it violates the firearms portion of the NFL’s Prohibited Advertising Categories:

“5. Firearms, ammunition or other weapons are prohibited; however, stores that sell firearms and ammunitions (e.g., outdoor stores and camping stores) will be permitted, provided they sell other products and the ads do not mention firearms, ammunition or other weapons.”

The commercial, which can be seen above, doesn’t technically violate the NFL’s policy, with (arguable) exception to the DDM4 silhouette logo at the end. Daniel Defense offered to replace the potentially offending logo with “…an American flag and/or the words “Shall not be infringed.””. The NFL countered the offer with an additional non-negotiable denial. Surprisingly, Daniel Defense had no trouble running a commercial in local Georgia markets during the 2012 Super Bowl XLVI on NBC.
