They call it "The rifle that aims itself" that however, is a misnomer, you still must aim the rifle, however, the laser assisted fire control mechanism does not allow the rifle to fire until the target is acquired. Something we learned and called "shooter control or discipline".

I like the concept in some ways, however, there is no substitute for training, good equipment is vital, however teaching the fundamentals of shooting is of more importance than the technological level of the equipment we use.

A good shooter can wring more advantage out of an 1850's iron sighted BP rifle, than a bad shooter with an advanced, scoped, so called sniper rifle.

Too much emphasis on what a "novice shooter" can do, IMHO, a "novice shooter should spend as much time as possible shedding the title of novice through proper training.
