    Interesting scope and concept. Sooner or later someone was going to come out with something like this. I wonder what the sticker shock of one of these is.


    Anyone tried one or seen one yet?

    I wonder if it really works...

    One thing I noticed is that is doesn't mention is windage correction. To me that is the biggest variable at long range. Drops are reliable and predicable.

    I had an idea for a superscope some years ago, but I envisioned it somewhat differently than Elcan has it set up.
    You still need a separate rangefinder with the Elcan.

    My idea was to build a laser rangefinder into a scope and areticle that would automatically adjust to the range indicated by the rangefinder. It would utilize computer stored Ballistic data for particular loads and bullets.

    I would much rather have a scope/rangefinder combo than a scope/video combo; although I guess their both kinda cool. But the scope/rangefinder--autoadjusting reticle would be much more practical for the hunter.
